Question about Computers & Internet
I bought a samsung sunchmaster 1 day ago but when i plugged the vga cable in the pc and monitor, i get a black screen even if i set the options to extend. when i press the menu button it says: "test good" after that it keep being black, checked the capacitors and i dont see anything wrong, even the big 1. no pins are bended either at the vga cable. been searching for hours
I would first check to make sure your video card is seated properly, unless you have an integrated video chip then you might want to insert a video card on the PCI slot to make sure that the problem is not with your motherboard or your PCI slot. If no problem with that, use a flash light at an angle to light up your monitor when your computer is on and plugged into your monitor to see if the screen is on but maybe too dim too see. If that is the case it sounds like the capacitors in your monitor might be causing a problem. Sometimes the capacitors do no look busted or bulged at the top, one might be bad internally without giving an indication by looks.

This problem is most likely to be caused by a bent or broken pin on the CRT video cable at the VGA connector, OR, this could also be caused by a damaged VGA connector on the back of the laptop. If neither VGA connector is at fault, the problem could be caused a damaged (kinked) CRT data cable, or internal damage to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop, though I suspect the problem is more likely to be external, and you probably won't have to disassemble the laptop to locate the culprit...

SOURCE: Nothing on the screen at startup
If you cant get into the setup menu then I would think the monitor is defective,you did not state if you hooked up the monitor to a computer that has a vga port that works.

The problem you are having is a common symptom of a failure in the power supply. Parts called capacitors start failing. When they fail they stop filtering the voltages correctly and the power supply shuts down to prevent additional damage. If you would like more information on capacitor failure please check out this page on our web site explaining what they are and what they do: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/capacitors/ If you can solder then you can do the repair yourself.
