    I have an nvidia 8800 gt and it just started this yesterday 22 Feb 09. While playing COD WAW The monitor displays message that it is going to sleep and the screen goes black. Restarting the computer will bring it back for a few minutes and it happen again. Each time this happens the time becomes les and less so I think it's a heat problem. I'm still tring to come up with a solution.

The graffics card was over heating. It apears the card has an auto cut off switch to turn it off to prevent damage. I removed the card and blew it out with compressed air to remove the dust build up in the fan and componets. Also the graffics card was tight against my TV tuner with little room for air flow. I removed the modem card for I do not need it and moved the tuner card in its place. This gave me an inch of space between them for better air flow. The card is working perfectly again.

I have a strange problem. Using Windows 7 and Nvidia 260 GTX video card. I have a 20" Samsung syncmaster & a 32" Samsung LCD TV 1080p. I want the Syncmaster to be Monitor 1 & the LCD to...


Windows 7 has some neat little enhancements, one of them being how it lets you handle dual monitors. If you're adding a second monitor to your Windows 7 home or office PC, which is a very good idea, it's a breeze to configure.
There are actually two ways you can currently setup multiple monitors in Windows 7, either by using a keyboard shortcut or via the traditional system properties.
I really like the first method since it's new and is way easier than having to go into the Control Panel or anything else.
Simply press the Windows key and P (Windows + P) to bring up a quick menu of options.

Pretty neat! You can pick to show only the computer, make the second monitor a duplicate of the first, extend the desktop to the second monitor or turn off the first monitor and activate the second.
The second way is to right-click on the desktop and choose Screen resolution.

Now you'll see the familiar 1 and 2 to distinguish which monitor is which. There are several options and under Multiple Displays, you can choose from the same options as when you pressed Win + P.

That's it! You can also change the orientation of the displays and change the resolution of each display. It's pretty straight-forward in Windows 7 and a lot easier! Enjoy!

VGA connection works, DVI does not


Everything seems perfectly normal...

When you connect the computer to the monitor via an analog VGA cable, you get signal on the analog input.
When you connect them via a DVI cable, you feed the monitor's DIGITAL input, so the monitor doesn't get any signal on it's analog input, and informs you about it.
You have to select the digital input from the monitor's On Screen Menu, and then start the computer up - you should see the picture OK.
Also remember to set the display resolution on your computer to match the optimum (native) resolution of your monitor - this will give you optimum picture quality. In case of VA712B it will be 1280x1024.
Good luck and please come back with a testimonial if helped.

I turn on my pc all fine screen says no signal help please


Verify that the VGA cable is fully seated and connected. If you can test the computer on another monitor or test another computer on that monitor. Are you getting any video display on the monitor? Does it display the start-up screen then goes away when windows starts? If so start the computer and press F5. A menu will come up and select to start computer in VGA mode. This should bring up windows so you can change the screen resoloution to something the monitor can handle. If the computer does not display anything and the monitor is testing good then the on-board video or video card might be faulty. You could change the video card if it has one or add one to the system if it has on-board video. You could also try re-setting the BIOS jumper to clear the cmos or pull out the watch battery for 20 seconds. Another thing to try is to disconnect all hardware...cd-rom, hard drive, floppy drive, and memory dimms and see if it boots up with display. If that works the you will need to re-install each piece of hardware one at a time and re-boot until the problem happens again. Once it does that is your problem device. You could also try swapping out the power supply and see if that is the cause of the problem.

No signal on monitor


Do you have another monitor to test your computer? Looks like a surge went into the computer display and damaged the video card.

Ati radeon grafix card 9550/x1050 monitor signal out of range


Hi,

Try to check the screen resolution and the screen refresh rate. Try to set it first to 60hz for the screen refresh rate and try to set the screen resolution to 1024 x 768.

Secondary monitor from a Laptop


If your laptop doesn't automatically detect the external monitor, there will be a function key you need to press to activate the external monitor connector. It's often on the top row of keys, but different manufacturers put their function keys wherever they like. The key will normally have a marking that looks like a little monitor screen. Connect your external monitor, hold down the F or Fn key and press the monitor key when you find it. Usually the first press will turn on the external monitor and turn off the laptop screen, then the second press turns the laptop screen back on. Some brands or models may not turn off the laptop display, though.
