Question about Samsung 192MP (Silver) 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

How do I increase the size of my desktop and remove the blue border?

My 192MP monitor is hooked up to my laptop running XP. When used as a TV everything works fine but now when I use it as a monitor the screen size has changed so that it appears smaller & there is a large blue border where the screen used to occupy. Basically it looks like the desktop is set in the center of a blue background. The resolution has not changed so why does it appear smaller and how can I fix this?

There are three size settings you can choose from, Normal, Wide and Zoom. Try changing it using the 'Size' button on the remote or by going into the On Screen Display (OSD) settings. If you don't have a manual you can get one here. Hope this helps.

What is occurring is the TV monitor is extending your desktop, where what you were doing in the past is switching between the two. When you plugged the VGA cable in, what occurred is your desktop was increased to account for the size of the TV, and it is acting like a second monitor, If you go into the display properties on your computer you will see a monitor with a 1 and one with a 2. The monitor with a 2 on it is the television, and whatever side it is to the #1 monitor (most likely to the right) if you scroll your mouse to the right of the monitor on your computer you should see it appear on the TV, to play or have a window on your TV, simply click and drag the window into the TV screen Frame, and then maximize the window, this will allow you to continue to work on your computer monitor while the other program runs on the television. It's basically like having two monitors instead of switching between the two

The monitor should have some buttons on it to enter the menu system for the monitor. as part of the settings there should be options for vertical/horizontal size and position. You will need to adjust these to bring your borders to the correct position.

hi,
This is normally due to a frequency or resolution incompatibility. Turn on your desktop computer, then change the screen resolution to 800x600 or 1024x768. Save the settings. Reboot to check that it is indeed saved.
Once you boot up on your TV, it should display fine. Gradually increase the resolution and colors to the max your TV can handle.

How do I retune my Samsung Syncmaster 19''LCD TV as channel 5 is not available.


Manually select channel 5 (NOT by pressing "channel-up" while viewing channel 4) and press the 'ADD/DELETE CHANNEL' button.

Or, run through the complete "automatic channel seek" first-time-setup function to "re-discover" all the available channels.

I am trying to connect my toshiba laptop to my philips tv by vga but i do not know what settings to put my laptop on


Hi,

Assuming that you have hooked the cables right, you need to press the key combination Fn + F? to activate the external video output of the Toshiba laptop. The "?" would depend on the exact model of your Toshiba. Additionally, there would be a blue lettered indicator on one of the top keys of keyboard indicating a monitor.

Incidentally, it might be worth mentioning that most TV can not operate on too high a setting of the Resolution of your Display Properties and therefore would require that the laptop's Screen Resolution be lowered down when used in conjunction with an external display device such as a monitor. At other times, the Screen refresh Rates would need to be lowered down also.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Connecting to tv with s cable


Some laptops have a "Fn" button (function) which basically acts like another alt key. On my dell laptop, it's blue, and all blue icons on the keys represent something that happens when I press the "Fn" button with that key. For instance there's a little picture of a monitor on the F5 key, and when I press Fn + F5 it automatically searches for a plugged in monitor (or TV). See if your laptop has a similar function. Maybe look in the manual?

The second solution I have for you, is (for windows xp) right click on desktop, go to properties, then go to the settings tab. See if there are two monitors, if there are choose the TV (probably the one that's not selected) and choose "use this as my default monitor" or "extend my windows desktop to this monitor" if you want to also use your laptop monitor at the same time.

If none of those worked, make sure your TV is set to the right input. (some newer TVs have 8 or more inputs, so try cycling through them all).

If all else fails, it could be that your s-video card needs drivers. If this is the case let me know and I'll see if I can help you out.
