Re: Dell monitor screen jumps and screensaver won't ever...
First turn hibernate off. this is probably causing problem with your screensaver. when you say your screen jumps that leads me to believe that your monitor is probably on its way out. If you can try to hook up a diffferent monitor and see if you have the same results
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

sounds like a videocard problem, thermal issue with the GPU, and yes running it 24/7 will decrease the lifespan of the monitor. However getting 3 years life from a samsung CRT is a pretty good effort considering how often their picture tubes fail.
ok here's what i can suggest. Two things. 1. Check your power settings by going to the Control Panel and then going to Power Options. Take a look at the power schemes..specifically the option where it says turn of monitor...you can select the "Always On" power scheme....if this doesn't do it... 2. Right click on your desktop and click on Properties. Go to the Screen Savers and verify that the time before the screensaver comes on is not something ridiculous like 1 minute. You can just disable the screensaver if you'd like by selecting "none"..
I'm pretty sure you're dealing with one of those two problems.
Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset
amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go
completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean
that your Dell computer
has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn
off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the
Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display
any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off
power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your
Dell computer tower or laptop.
any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by
mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer
requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from
going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your
desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press
"Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the
drop-down list and press "Apply."
Black screen is probably a screen saver or the screen is turned off by power management software.
Check your screensaver setting. Change the screensaver to None to disable screensaver.
I assume you are using Windows XP.
If the LCD is turned off by power management, on the same screen with screen saver, on the lower part of the box there is a Power button. Click to open Power Options Properties. Set your monitor power properties there.
When the screen go blank and you have to push power button, probably the computer is set to go to stand by mode after some idle minutes. You can also set it here in system standby setting.
mcdevito75 here LCD, or liquid Crystal display, chances are the crackling is the inside liquid display trying to capture the in comming electricity to make a display picture. Remember even an LCD is nothing more than a light bulb, a very intricate light bulb but a light bulb, and you have light bulbs burn out when you put them on and almost never as the are on burning. Turning the monitor itself off won"t really save electricity or the monitor itself as, when you shut down the computer from Start (left side of screen) the monitors screen saver comes on for 10--20 minutes then goes off, at this point the electricity is at the monitors on/off switch and not going thru the monitor at all. If you turn the monitor off at it"s on/off switch, the sudden jump of electricity to the monitor from it"s on/off switch could hurt it, or even the switch. I have a friend who turns off the monitor also and that friend had a bad monitor in 3 years. I never turn my monitor off just the computer itself. I'd speak with a Radio Shack, Staples, Best Buy ETC. for more advise. Me I;d say leave the monitor on. Hope this helps.
