Question about Samtron 76df 17" CRT Monitor

Open Question

Shutting one screen down and activating an attached monitor.

Using Vista, I am using a notebook but I want to change to a different monitor. I have the external monitor attached and was originally getting the mirrored images on the two screens. After playing around with it, the notebook screen is still active while the attached monitor now displays only the screen saver without any icons.

I went to the display settings but no matter what I do I can't change the notebook to be monitor #2 and the attached monitor as #1. My secondary monitor is a Samsung.

SOURCE: Monitor color has been changed to yellowish.

There are three Cathod Ray guns responsible for the millions of
colors.All colors are produced by mixing the three basic colors namely
Red Green and Blue (RGB) at suitable proportion. If any one of the
three guns fail firing then we get improper colors.
Try
(1) Simply tap on the monitor and see the result.(Keep the monitor on during this trial.)
(2) Disconnect the Monitor.and Slap it at the back by keeping it on a pillow with the screen facing down - it will resolve the problem if the failure is due to the loosening of the Head due to repeated thermal expansion and contraction.
(3) check the signal cable for loose connection, twisting etc on both ends - at the back of the CPU and Monitor (it is fixed) -
(4)tighten the screws at the backside of the CPU

Best of luck

MY SONY VAIO DOES NOT CONNECT TO AN EXTERNAL MONITOR


Are you using a vga cable or hdmi? As for a solution try right clicking e desktop then click screen resolution if using windows vista/7 then select the monitor from the drop down menu and select it as the main monitor or secondary up to you and click apply. If nothing happens change the resolution of the external one to the lowest and hit apply. Hope this helps.

Screen seems to be not working properly


try using a different monitor, borrow one if you have to, if the monitor works on your computer, then it simply means you need a new monitor. As far as the computer shutting down, it may be recording the bad monitor as an error in the loading process and automatically shutting down.

Most like the sound card you have is not compatible with Windows Vista. You need to check the manufacturers website to see if there is any patch for Windows Vista
