Have LG W2343 monitor. Just purchased a new HP computer which has Windows 7, but having trouble with the size resolution on my screen. Monitor worked fine on my old HP computer which had Windows XP

You have to look hereto see if it is compatible with Windows 7,

Otherwise you will need Windows 7 driver from LG if they have one.
Most monitors works fine without the need of the drivers when running XP, but Windows 7 you need the correct drivers to get the correct resolution setting, that is one of the reason I do not care much for Windows 7 until they fix this problem, since a lot of people out there that still have great working monitors that work just fine with XP, most manufacturers do not provide drivers for Windows 7 for old monitors because they want you to buy new monitors.

When I turn on my PC Windows starts fir 4 seconds then I see on flat monitor LG "Analog Power Saving Mode" and LG monitor goes off (yellow light on monitor panel). Please help.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to fail to detect a hard drive continue on a cycle or to shutdown

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA and

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

My monitor displays large icons, how will i reset it?

Hello Sir,

Right click on a blank spot on your desktop and select properties. You are looking for the tab that allows you to reset your resolution (I no longer have XP so I cannot double check which for you right now) and reset it to a HIGHER number by sliding the slide to the right and click apply. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons will be. It may take a little bit of experimenting to find what you like or what you had. It sounds like the program you used is an older one that was intended to run on windows 95 since 95 had a default resolution that was very low (800x600 I think). If you intend to use this program again, try running it in Windows 95 compatibility mode and it may eliminate the problem when you shut it down. To do this, open My Computer and the drive that has your programs on it (probably 'C' by default) and Program Files and look for the program's main executable (".exe), right click on it, click on the compatibility tab and select 'run as windows 95' and OK.

LCD monitor wont work "input not supported " comes up

Assuming you are running Windows 95, 98, 2000, ME, or XP...

During boot, after "all the computer details come up", press F8 repeatedly until a menu appears. One of the options will be "Enable VGA Mode". Choose that option. Once into Windows, right-click the desktop and hit "Properties". Go to the "Settings" tab, and change the "Screen Resolution" to the lowest possible setting (800x600 is safe). Click OK, and reboot.

Your problem should now be gone. You will want to go back into that screen after you have rebooted and set the resolution higher. At some certain resolution, you'll have the problem again. Don't go that high.

If you are using Windows Vista, then right-click the desktop, hit "Customize", and choose "Display Settings".

22" flatron (W2252TQ) Monitor Will not stay on after windows logo comes on

Reboot the computer and start in safe mode.(Press F8 at start-up in WIN XP).Change display resolution to 800><600 and restart in normal mode.
Your original problem must be monitor hardware related ie some loose connection or dry solder on invertor /power board inside the monitor.
Please provide feedback and rate the solution.
