I have 2 systems with the FPD1500 monitor. They worked fine until I applied
SP2. After SP2, they will not start. They come on OK, display the Windows
XP splash screen and then go into sleep mode when the system starts the
proper display mode before the Windows XP login screen is displayed. If I go
into safe mode and uninstall the video adaptor and restart the system, it
will start properly. After it comes up, it finds the video adaptor and
installs it and the session proceeds OK. I can reset the resolution and
number of colors to 1024x768 and Highest (32 colors) and things look fine.
However, when I restart the system, it hangs up after the Windows splash
screen and the monitor goes to sleep.
If I put it into VGA mode, it will come up OK. But once I change any
resolution or number of colors, it imediately goes to sleep.
I would appreciate any help you could offer.

1) It could be your power supply is going bad or not strong enough to keep the monitor on.
2) It could be a memory issue. Video is one of the signs that your ram is bad.
3) It could be a loose connection or the monitor itself.
I would suggest first unplugging all the connections to the monitor and pc then plug in again and restart. If it still turns off try a monitor that you know works. If you still have the problem try changing your memory sticks. It's unusual that it would be a video card/ on board video because it usually either works or it doesn't.

rfusco187, I hope you have good warranty?? If not, you will need to do some testing to verify if SMPS is in full or partial shutdown mode. Full= both "black" and "blank"!!! Partial= "black" but can still see ICONS and WIN-desktop if you shine a bright flashlight 1 inch from screen at different angles!!! Then you wil need to decide what you will do. Your options are: Samsung warranty. or possible swap for a refurbished unit from Samsung. (Cash+old unit) only if they have a swapout program!! Trade-in for NEW 2009-2010 model, But the sales guy will take your unit back to the tech in back of store and say "HERE'S ANOTHER ONE YOU CAN TAKE A SHOT AT FIXING-UP" !!! Maybe with a little bit of luck and $6 in parts the tech might have a nice monitor for XMAS. Now, if unit not covered by warranty try a visit to a site run by another fixya guy (buddymc) www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and see if a DIY project will help you decide what to do about your black screen LCD. The reason I make this suggestion is the fact that your monitor WORKS!! Just not long enough!!! You can also visit YOUTUBE for video clips of"LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" to further your knowledge of the one or two COMMON problems that occur with ALL BRANDS of LCD CCFL backlit displays, LCD TV's included. Well, I wish you luck in getting your problem taken care of. If this was imformative and steers you in the right direction, come back and rate this on fixya.
