Question about Samsung SyncMaster 172MP 17 in. LCD Television
I open the tower but the monitor still stay black it plays tv and video but not the pc
Hi this is the way how to examine
what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen
blacked out or stopped working, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or
not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best
angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or
any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside
screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot
see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you
have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It
may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board
because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a
technician to do so.
Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.

The cable connecting to the PC might be loose, or the part entering the monitor could be.
Try turning the monitor on, and after a few seconds, turn on the computer. You should be able to see the BIOS POST screen text flashing by. If you can't, there is something wrong in your hardware settings.
If you can, however, that's the OS resolution set too high: the monitor shuts down to protect itself. Boot in safe mode by pressing the F8 key immediately after powering up, then lower the video resolution in Control Panel display settings to something safe - 1024 x 768 usually does the trick. At that point you can reboot in normal mode and raise the resolution again to the maximum supported by the monitor (check the manual for that).

Follow the instruction below to solve your problem:
Restart your computer and enter Safe Mode (press F8 right as the computer starts booting up. Choose Safe Mode in the menu, press Enter twice).
While in Safe Mode, open Control Panel and go to Add/Remove Programs (Programs and Features on Vista/7) and uninstall the display driver software/drivers.
Restart your computer and boot normally. Now you should be able to see everything. Things might look bigger and uglier, that because there's no display driver installed. All you have to do now is reinstall the display driver. Use it's original disc or go to the manufacturer website and download the latest driver.
