If your monitor is showing weird colors before the Windows XP welcome screen then it might be that your monitor is bad. Try hooking up a different monitor and see if the colors look fine as the computer is booting up, if it does then you know the original monitor is bad, if the colors still look weird then you know your video card is going bad.

As far as the lockups are concerned, with the computer turned off, take out the memory. With a can of air, blow some on the contacts of the memory and into the memory slots on the motherboard. You want to do this to make sure that there is no dust or dirt cause that can cause lockups to happen.

If you need more help, just let me know.

My samaung notebook screen does not show coler it seems red points on home screen


If the screen is mainly red, you need to replace the LCD display panel. First! hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if picture okay! the above mentioned needs to be changed, but if both show the same symptom it is the video graphics card that is the problem normally built into the motherboard.

Hello ghinea18, sorry you can't do that because this will cause hardware conflict, that's why motherboard bios automatically disable integrated graphics if you install video card using pci express x16 slot - Nvidia GeForce 7300SE. do you know if your video card has dual vga or dual dvi connection?

You can try dual display, im not sure if this card supports dual monitors because nvidia online specs does not show full specs on 7300se series. \

Good Luck!

TRYING TO CONNECT TWO MONITORS FOR EXTENDING USE


1) You have to have a graphics card with two monitor ports.

You Cannot use one port on a graphics card, and the VGA, or DVI port on the motherboard of the computer.
BIOS will only let you use the graphics card, or the Integrated Graphics.

2) Using a 'splitter' cable results in very bad graphics on two monitors, or no graphics at all.

3) With a graphics card installed that has two monitor ports on it, connect the monitors to the graphics card.

[ The graphics card can have a VGA port, and a DVI port. Or the graphics card can have two DVI ports.

VGA = Video Graphics Array
Photo of a VGA port,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SVGA_port.jpg

Photo of a VGA cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vga-cable.jpg

DVI = Digital Visual Interface

Information about DVI showing a DVI cable, and connector examples for the DVI port on a graphics card,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface ]


4) Turn the two monitors on once they are connected to the graphics card.
Turn on the computer.

5) Windows loaded, right-click on an empty area of the desktop screen.

6) In the list go to the bottom, and click on Properties

7) Click on the Settings tab.

8) You will see two monitor icons.
One icon has a square with a 1 in it.
The other icon has a square with a 2 in it.

The 1 monitor icon is used to represent your Primary monitor.
The one you have been using.
As you can see the 1 monitor icon is sitting to the Left.
This is how your Primary monitor should be sitting on your computer desk.

The 2 monitor icon is used to represent your Secondary monitor.
The one you are going to add.
As you can see the 2 monitor icon is sitting to the Right.
This is how your Secondary monitor should be sitting on your computer desk.

Left-click on the 2 monitor icon.
Go below in the Display Properties window, and view where it states -

Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor

There is an empty square to the left of it.
Left-click in the empty square.

Now go below to the Right, and click on - Apply
Finally go below to the Left, and click on - OK

Your desktop screen will now be on your Secondary monitor.

Whatever is on your Primary monitor, has to be drug over to the Secondary monitor, when you are on the internet, or a program. (Such as a game)

Go to the blue frame on the Left side of the Windows screen.
When your cursor turns into a double-headed arrow STOP.

You'll find it's a little tricky your first time, keeping your cursor into the position where it turns into a double-headed arrow.
With the cursor in a double-headed arrow, press the left mouse button down, hold it down.
Drag the monitor screen to the Left.

Keep dragging until the window on your Primary monitor is on your Secondary monitor.
It's helpful you'll find to have two of the same size monitors.

I have found occasion where when using the internet on two monitors, that I had to Restore Down the screen, THEN drag it over to the Secondary monitor screen.

(Icons at the top right of the monitor screen.
Minimize ( - ), .......Restore Down/Maximize, ...........Red X

Then I Maximized the screen

Screen goes black and then comes back on. It makes a double beep sometimes when this happens.


sounds like a loose cable or improperly seated. power or signal cable. Unplug all ends, and replug with snug fit. Most monitors dont beep. are you sure this not the computer restarting. I have also seen loose graphics cards sometimes do this. inspect where the card seats into the graphics card slot. see pic. (the grapics card is red in this picture.84a853e.jpg

When I connect the lcd to my laptop, the lad shows


hi atuire,

try hooking up the lcd screen toanother computer and if it shows the same double screen again then there is aomething wrong with your lcd monitor,
you may want to use another monitor with your laptop to ensure the problem is not on the laptop's side.

if issue stays same with another monitor, then just right-click onto desktop background, goto properties and have a look whether you have enabled the shared monitor feature
(meaning that u can use two screens with just one graphics card parallel, to work on a 'wider' range of sight.
Therefore your machine's graphics card sually must be equipped with both: a standard vga out and a HDMI-out as well.)

if your machine ddoes not have these capabilities but still the monitor sharing is turned on from the software side, this might cause the problem. To disable simply change the graphics card's
propertiers as descried above.

Good luck
