Question about Computers & Internet

Monitor Image I tried the Fisher Price keyboard and when I turned it off my monitor's screensaver image along with all the icons were sideways and distorted. I had to do a system restore to bring everything back to normal. I had since put the Fisher Price keyboard in a closet in hopes of finding an old computer for it to operate on. Anyone else experience this? Thanks, Mark

Finbally my father bought for me a computer because of that err.Thank you for sharing your experience and plz send us your queries if you have any problem.
note:there is no resolution to this fisher price application as it is a stimulator itself which helps in performing some action

Hi

Desktop PCs automatically seek an external monitor to output graphics to. Laptops default settings send the image to the internal monitor. You need to manually instruct the laptop to export the image to an external monitor.

With the cable connected and the monitor powered up, try pressing the Fn key (bottom left of keyboard) on the laptop and simultaneously pressing the function key at the top ofthe keyboard with an image of 2 monitors (often F5 or F6) to sent d the image to the external screen.

I hope this helps.

I get ghost images. Is there a way to de-gaus an LCD monitor?


Sounds like it's either ghosting, or image persistance.

Ghosting on LCD monitors is usually caused by interference via the monitor cable. Try moving your monitor cable so that it doesn't pass near any other cables or electronic devices. If that helps, then position the cable away from the others perminantly or replace the cable with a "shielded" monitor cable.

Image persistance on an LCD can be caused by leaving it on with the same image for a very long time. The pixels don't exactly "burn-in" like on the old CRT monitors, but over time, they can develop a memory that causes them to change color slowly or incompletely. Prevention is best (turn the monitor off when not in use, or use a rotating screen saver.) But if it is already a problem, you do have a few options. You can turn it off for a long time, run a rotating screen saver for a long time, or display a solid white screen for a while. Another technique is to create a slideshow in the Windows screensaver with a solid white image and a solid black image (create them in MS Paint and save them where you can find them later.) Let it alternate between the white and black screens for a while and check to see improvements.

Good luck!

Please read below if you decide to DIY:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

The setup menu on your monitor needs to be changed. On most monitors there are buttons which you press in sequence, go through these buttons and you will find a monitor mode which allows it to stay on permanently.

When screen comes out of screensaver/sleep mode,


It's a bad LCD screen or bad video card. If its a laptop, try to hook an external monitor to the video port in the back and see if it has the same problem. If it is the same problem, then you know its the video card and not the monitor screen. If you have a desktop PC that has this problem, its most likely the video card. First try removing the monitor and trying it on another computer to see if the monitor is bad. If not, then remove and replace your video card and restart. If same problem, replace video card with a new one.

The problem is just the monitor settings. To reset the monitor, just press the Select button (+) and Adjust button ( - ) on your monitor at the same time.
