Re: video

Take out older drivers and then re-install new drivers. They apparently are corrupted.

My monitor coming blur after some time. When I power off and on again it is OK. The monitor is new Samsung LED BX1931.

First, try turning off the windows power options just to check maybe if you work idle on the computer display really goes dim or blurry.

Second, try a different computer if still fails it means your monitor is ok. So what you can do is to update the display or video driver or your computer, update the chipset and BIOS.

If monitor is fine and you tried all suggestion above. I would suggest you need to back you files cause this might end up re-installing your windows operating system.

Hope this helps!

My monitor keeps going black.. so I shut off the switch on the monitor; then turn it back on; then its ok.. but after sometimes just a few seconds it does it again... goes black again.. sometimes its...

Under display settings, it's best to use default theme like vista or xp theme. You can also go to screensaver, then power options and set how long it takes for monitor to shut off. I also recommend updating the video card drivers.

Hmm... is still not working

Start your computer and tap the F8 key as soon as the computer begins to power-up. Keep tapping until you come to the Safe Mode screen. When the screen alerts you to the fact that you have chosen Safe Mode, click OK.

When you get to the desktop go to the control panel and launch System Properties. Go to Hardware and Device manager. Click the arrow next to the Display Adapter. Point at the adapter, right click and chooser Properties. Click the Driver Tab. Roll back the video driver to previous driver.

If indeed you have installed a new driver that is not compatible with your video card, then rolling it back to the original may very well take care of this problem.

Good luck!

Computer monitor comes on for 1 seconds, flashes "analog power save mode" and then goes black.

Most monitors will say "Power save mode" when they can tell through residual voltage that the signal lead is plugged into a machine, but there's no picture being transmitted. The four states of a monitor are:

* Off entirely.
* Switched on, plugged into a computer but no video signal being received - usually displays "analog power save mode" or "digital power save mode" for a few seconds, then blanks. Comes back to life the moment a video signal is received. This state is the default in full power saving mode.
* Switched on, not plugged into a computer. Some monitors don't display anything, some go into power saving mode, some fly "CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" or a similar message around the screen. Picture is restored when the signal cable is plugged back into the computer
* On fully, receiving an image, and displaying.

Hope this helps.

Go into control panel and check your display settings. change them to a larger setting if this does not work, try different monitor. Old monitor may not go high enough resolution for your video card. Second try you should disconnect your display and check the video connection pins to see if they are bent or missing.
