Syncmaster 245bw monitor resolution screen and resolution issues

When i display this monitor in 1920 by 1200 resolution it cuts off about 5 inches of the screen and the only way to see the far left or right of the screen is to scroll the mouse to the far left or right. i just updated my nvidia geforce fx5600 xt to the latest drivers and that did nothing. Also when i hook my xbox 360 up to the monitor it can only be displayed in 640 by 480 resolution. If i change the display resolution on the xbox the screen blows up and i can only see the middle of the screen. kinda like if you're using a high resolution on a computer and uninstall your video drivers everything gets HUGE.

    what 2 devices are not compatible? the xbox and the monitor? if so why not? a few friends of mine use their computer monitor and their xbox this way.

    also what would cause the "scroll" to happen when i use the monitor with my computer?

These two devices are not compatible, you may need to read the information on this LCD MONITOR to see if the resolutions are compatible, this often times happen when monitors are purchased!

    Resolution changes cause your scroll to occurr, this happens when a monitors resolution is set too high. The best way to figure this one out is to work with the resolution.

    Test the theory:

    Right click on desktop

    Select properties

    Tab over to settings

    there is a bar in the left bottom corner

    Screen resolution

    Less starting at 800 by 600

    More ending 2048 by 1536

    these settings vary based on drivers installed and graphics card

    When you select one of that suits your needs

    Select Apply

    Your screen will flicker and you will be given a preview of what your screen will look like with the selection you have chosen

    Continue to play around with this until you have found the appropriate setting!

Samsung 245BW No Display

have you tried this monitor on another computer? what was the result? Also, try laying the monitor down flat and see if you see any "ghosting" from the characters on the screen. (if the backlight goes out on the monitor, you should be able to see some of the graphics displayed on the screen still with a flashlight or at an angle if the monitor is working)
let me know what you find out

Plug in the monitor and it comes on momentarily but then cuts out to blank screen.I got this given to me and am just trying to see if Ican use it with my hp system thanks.

Hi. If the display goes out after displaying the Power On Self-Test (POS) and the power indicator turns amber, it means that the display resolution of your computer is higher than what SyncMaster 192S can handle.

If you still have the monitor that you were using before, connect that one and change screen resolution to 800x600 and 60 Hertz. Turn off your computer then change monitor/LCD and turn on your computer. You may change screen resolution to optimize display on your SyncMaster 193S.

Let me know if you need help changing screen resolution or if you don't have the original monitor that you were using on your HP.

I'd say your video card is having trouble pushing the resolution of the monitor. I'd upgrade the video card.

Monitor will not display in native resolution.

sounds to me like they replaced your vga board with another compatible one but not the same exact one I would call the repair facility that did the work and ask questions about how they repaired the monitor like if they used another vga board etc. hope this helps

Does the monitor remain on does it switch off?
Problem seems to be hardware related ie monitor itself is defective.Try connecting to another known working system.If monitor is defective it could be a power/inverter related issue or panel could be defective.
Please provide feedback and rate the solution.

Samsung Syncmaster 245BW sync problem

If you are plugged into a NVIDIA graphics card, use the NVIDIA control panel scaling option to "do not scale" then set the resolution to 1920x1080. This monitor is a 16:10 aspect ratio instead of 16:9 like HD TV's, so it is necessary to turn of scaling from the software and thus give black bars.
