    Hi jay bourn, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Is the monitor consistently dim through the entire screen or is it brighter at the top or the bottom?

  • Gamr13 Dec 29, 2013

    Thank you for the reply, The monitor is constantly dim, not any side brighter than the other

  • Gamr13 Dec 29, 2013

SOURCE: Hi,how do I know wheather I need DVI or VGA cables

Hi,
no worries, any monitor you buy now which is an LCD has both inputs DVI and VGA. However, it might not necessarily provide both cables. I suggest you buy one where both cables are included.
From the description, the cable you have is VGA. The VGA PC interface for it should be smooth with small holes in it. The DVI PC interface is wider than VGA

Zoom on desktop


Try Right Clicking on a empty space on the desktop and select Properties. Click the Settings Tab and go change the screen resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons. Normal resolution is about 1024x768, but you can make the icons even smaller by increasing the resolution.

If you can't get into the screen resolution that way, turn off the computer and boot up into safe mode.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

When the computer boots up click Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings Control Panel and look for Desktop or Appearance and Personalization.
Look for Screen Resolution or open the desktop and click the Settings tab. Make the resolution higher to make the icons smaller. Normal is 1024x768 but you can make it higher.

In Windows 7 just click Start and in the search box type: Screen Resolution. Look up at the top for the returned search results and click on Screen Resolution. Go in and set the resolution higher.

After you change the resolution reboot and let windows go into it's normal boot up mode.

Change the resolution on my Samsung B2030 LCD Monitor


1600X900 is a higher resolution than that of 1280X1024. Therefore 1600X900 is a better resolution. If you would like to run at the lower resolution simply right click your desktop screen and click properties. Then on the settings tab use the slider bar to adjust the resolution. Lower to the left and higher to the right. If the desired resolution is unavailable then you could try downloading and installing the latest drivers for your graphics card installed in your computer.

Your card will either be AMD/ATI Radeon or Nvidia. You will need the model number of the graphics card, the latest drivers may increase resolution support for your card.

Also look on the bottom right hand side of your screen for an Nvidia Control Panel logo in green. Right click it and select the option to "change screen resolution" This may provide you with additional resolution options.

Take care!
