Question about Samsung SyncMaster 245BW Monitor
Ok got this monitor hooked it up and sometimes (50%) when i go to different applications the screen starts to fade to black like its burning? I alt tab to a diff application its fine but when i go back it does the same thing. this happens with any number of things, the web, games, sometimes it changes like one day my mozilla will display this problem and my game wont, the next day the opposite.
I have dled ever driver for my monitor and vid cards I can find. I have also tried this monitor on 3 diff computers including a laptop and it still does the same thing???
I am getting extremely frustrated.
I called Samsung, they sent me a new monitor (returned my old one) and guess what...DOES THE SAME THING!!!
I would normally thing this is a problem on my end since two diff monitors do it however I also have 2 syncmaster 19 inch monitors and a 19 inch hyundai and none of the display any of these problems.
my current system is an intel i7 system with 2 bfg geforce 280 1gig cards, my laptop is an alienware m9750 with 1 gig vid ram and my last system had an ati vid card in it, so it cant possibly be on my end.
please please please someone help me :(
If you have a second monitor, you could use your computer until the monitor goes black... then plug in a replacement monitor. My guess is that one will display black too...
My gut feeling is that your VGA card is on the fritz... I'm not convinced it's your monitor. Do you have a replacement VGA card you can try? I'll bet that'll take care of the problem.
