Dual Monitors Keep switching sides when I turn off computer

At night I shut down my computer. The next time I go on my second monitor doesn't match it's position. Every time I turn on I have to reset. How do make the monitor settings stay where I put them?

Try installing the latest drivers from support.dell.com

and use the ATI Catalyst software to set screen options instead of Windows (or vice versa)

High idle on HD, 08 Road King Classic


For fast RPM's at start that doesn't go down shortly after starting.
1) Put bike in neutral
2) Push to ON the first switch to right of starter switch next to throttle.
3) turn dial on gas tank to the On position for 5 seconds then off wait 2-3 seconds and repeat 3 more times total of 4 times
4)then Turn everything to off positions
5) wait a few seconds and start normally

I found that if you shut down the bike with rpms up a bit, it will start the next time with a faster than normal idle.

If you do this technique when the bike is cold, it will run a little fast til it warms up. Don't ask me why this works.

I had the same problem with this monitor (Samsung 943nw)
When turned on it would only stay on for less then a full second.
When shining a light on the screen I could see what was on it, so it was just the backlight that was shutting down.

After I turned down the brightness of the monitor, the next time I powered on the screen the backlight stayed lit and it was back to normal.

More likely to have failing power supply problem due to bad caps, look for caps with bulging top first and post back what you see inside, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

I have the same monitor & just had same problem. Did you find a solution to your problem? This is the second time my monitor has done this. The first time I had problem i unplugged it and disconnected it from pc. Plugged it into power source and blue pilot light came on then went off. I did see the LG logo on screen before it shut down. After several times doing this and pressing the power switch repeatedly it seemed to reset and recognized it was not receiving a signal and indicated this. I then reconnected monitor to pc and all appeared to work fine for several days. Now I again have same problem after sitting over night.

I have an acer monitor model #al1916 when I turn it on it sstays on about 5 second and shut back down


First, check all electrolytic capacitors and replace those which are blown or rounded. Next, if when it shuts down the green LED also turns off, then
on the controller PCB there's tiny transistor-like chip U406. Remove it from the board and try to turn the monitor on. That's reset circuit, you may live without it.

Camera "dead"


Did you try taking the batteries out? If not, try that and then put them back in again. This might reset the camera back to normal. Also, try turning the dial. Make sure it is at the camera setting, then try shutting it off. Further, move the dial to Set-up, and scroll down to the Reset all setting, press the right arrow and answer "Reset".
