Hey it taken me a few years to find a solution to this problem.
I also own a Samsung syncmaster 2032mw.
BTW you must hold / use the "Menu key on the side of the TV", as holding the remote key dosen't work!!


Many thanks dopeNL

There is a menu option in the monitor called "option". If you press "+" on this option you get to a screen that says "key lock" press "+" and it shuts it off.

Lcd-tv-monitor samsung 225 mw - switch the beep off


On consumer model tv's, you can shut off the melody that the tv makes. If you have a commercail grade tv, then no you can not shut it off. For the consumer set just look in your owners manuel and it will tell you how. If you do not have it, give me the model code of your tv and I will look it up for you. The model code is on a sticker on the right side of the set.

Computer not working with Samsung LCD TV


Your PC isn't working, the "CMOS Checksum Error" is a BIOS error. It has nothing to do with the monitor.
You have to let the PC load the default settings and try to boot up, if the defaults doesn't work, you have to reconfigure the options in the SETUP program. To enter Setup press "Del" or "F2" in the POST screen.
