My monitor is SyncMaster 226BW, Samsung. If the resolution was set at less than the maximum, the window screen stayed at the center of the monitor screen and takes only a half or 2/3 of the monitor. I tried to use the monitor adjusting buttons to change the size of the window screen, it didn't work. If the Pixel was set at 1680x1050, fonts of other programs are very small and all the websites are presenting on the half of the screen. Please help me with this problem.

Re: Window screen problem
I'm guessing you may need to download the proper software and drivers for this monitor. Have you always had this problem and now want to change it? Try this website: http://static.tigerdirect.com/pdf/samsung-206bw-manual.pdf

You change the resolution using your windows operating system. If you are using a window computer press the start Button lower left end corner of your monitor screen and select control panel then select the resolution option or screen display depending on the version of windows you are using.
The resolution 1680X1050 is the native resolution for your monitor. This means that the best view for your monitor is for this resolution. Your problem in not at the resolution, it's at the refresh rate. How to fix this? Go to the settings for your screen. At the lower right corner you will locate "for advanced users" button. Click on it and choose the "screen" tab. At the lower part of the window you will locate the "refresh rate". Click on it and change it at the lower setting (about 60 - 70 Hertz). Click on aplly - OK. You will be back to the resolution settings page. Set the resolution at 1680X1050, apply - ok. Go back to "refresh rate" window and change the setting to a higher setting STEP BY STEP. In case of an "out of range" and blaack screen DON'T DO ANYTHING, at 15 seconds you will come back to the previous settings. With this procedure you will get the native resolution for your screen with the higher refresh rate.

you cannot set the resolution to 1024x768 but instead try 1280x720 or if you have graphics card try to set the resolution using its custom resolution by setting 1280x768.
It will surely solve your problem.
What is the current screen-resolution of your laptop, e.g., 1280-by-1024?
What is the maximum resolution of your LCD screen?
If it is "less" than the laptop's resolution,
part of the picture will be "off-screen".
Reduce the screen-resolution of your laptop to match the maximum resolution of the LCD.
Resolution is determined by the display settings, up to the limits of the hardware. In windows, if you right-click on your desktop and select settings, click the "display settings" tab on the resulting window, you can select lower resolutions (icons etc. get bigger, less stuff fits on screen) if you desire. Be sure to click "apply"
Look for any bulging capacitors, instead of a flat top they will look "pregnant".
If you see any of those then replace them with capacitors of the same UF rating and the voltage needs to be either the same or higher.
If you dont see any bulging capacitors or burnt parts, then its got be the LCD at that point thats not staying on and the cost to replace the LCD is as much if not more then to just get another monitor.
The Samsung SyncMaster 730b is a 17-inch analog and digital TFT-LCD monitor delivering crisp, clean text and bright, vivid colors. This display offers a 600:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 1280 x 1024 resolution, 160/160 degree viewing angle, scanning frequency of 30-81 kHz horizontal and 56-75 Hz vertical and 0.294mm pixel pitch
The SyncMaster 730b display offers the option of using either a digital or analog interface for viewing images and text. The Digital Video Interface (DVI) ensures a shaper, cleaner image and a more accurate representation of the original video source. Since video starts out digital in a PC graphics card, the digital output is directly interfaced to the digital input of the LCD panel and always provides the optimum quality image. In addition, no adjustments are required with a digital display, even when randomly changing resolutions. Input connectors for this display include 15-pin D-sub and DVI-D. Available in black, the SyncMaster 730b delivers a maximum of 16.2 million colors. The monitor is Windows Plug and Play DDC 2B compatible
The important stuff here would be the following:
(1) 30-81 kHz horizontal and 56-75 Hz vertical (2) SyncMaster 730b delivers a maximum of 16.2 million colors (3) 1280 x 1024 resolution
nVidia card settings should not exceed these monitor parameters. The monitor is not designed for more performance output without increasing liability toward failure. ?. Put your card settings, under the nVidia tab, at the following:
(a) Refresh rate set at 75 Hz (b) Set colors at 16 million (c) Set resolution slightly less than 1280 x 1024
It?s quite possible your monitor is at fault, but start with its optimal parameter settings for the display card first. The display card probably exceeds the monitor?s capabilities. Hopefully, this will stabilize your PC session and the blank outs cease if hardware is not faulty
Normally I would suggest that you first lower your laptop's screen resolution, refresh rate and color quality and verify that you have enabled the external monitor or dual view in your Display Property Settings as well as the Fn key + F?.
However, this kind of problem should not exist with an LCD Widescreen monitor with specs and features as your Samsung 226BW.
If trying the reco on the first paragraph and you still have no movie display (but all other laptop display shows), perhaps it is a problem with the Samsung 226BW. To my knowledge, this particular brand/model uses no less than 3 different panel display, some not as good as the others. Verify that you have an original Samsung panel display in your Samsung monitor by looking at the sticker at the back of the screen, it should say Model: 226BW [R] S. If it says A or even a C, then perhaps the display panel is not living to its specs/claimed capacities. You of course can request a replacement from your dealer and cite your problem but insist that it be an "S". Most instances (but not always) an "S" would mean panel screen by Samsung, "A" by AU Optronics and "C" by CMO.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
