Hi,

You need to verify that the appropriate driver(s) has been loaded for your video/graphics card. If in your Device Manager, the Display Adapter has no yellow or red mark and indicates correctly whatever type of video card that you have. Thereafter, you need to go to your Display Properties and enable twin or dual view.

Should this not work out for you, pls post back with the brand and model of your video card. If it is a built-in version, post the make and model of your PC.

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.

Configuring your displays
Connect your second monitor, and then restart your computer so that it detects the new monitor. Once you have restarted your computer, you'll need to adjust your display settings by following these steps:
1.
Click the Start menu, and then click Control Panel.
2.
Click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
I have 2 monitors a - dualmonitor_04.gif
Once you connect your second monitor, you need to adjust your display settings.
3.
In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.
4.
Click the monitor icon labeled 2, and then select the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor checkbox.

Extend your Windows desktop to your second monitor.
Troubleshooting: If you do not see two monitor icons, your computer might not support multiple displays. First, make sure that you have Windows XP installed. Then, visit Microsoft Update, click Custom Install, and install any available hardware updates. You may also need to visit your computer manufacturer's Web site to install an updated display driver. If you still do not see two monitor icons, you may need to install an additional display adapter, as described earlier in this article.
5.
If necessary, drag the monitor icons so that they are arranged in the same way as the monitors on your desk. Click the Identify button to indicate which monitor is 1 and which monitor is 2.

Drag the monitor icons to match the physical arrangement of your monitors.
6.
Click Apply. Windows XP will activate your new monitor.
7.
Click OK.

A dual monitor setup enables you to view the same image side by side.
Once your monitor is set up, you can use your mouse to grab the title bar of a window and drag it to your new display. If a window does not move when you drag it, double-click the title bar first, and then drag it. Having two monitors will forever change the way you work with your computer. Be creative and experiment with the sizing of application windows and what information you can keep in constant view while doing multiple tasks.

Go to Desktop, right-click, select 'Properties'
Select tab 'Settings'. You should see two boxes with a 1 and a 2 in it. If one of them is greyed out, select it and make sure the checkbox with: "Extend my windows desktop onto this monitor".

Please report back

Hello tglb13

Did you have your desktop spanned across two monitors? - both monitors running simultaneously?

Likely you'll just need to go back in to your video configuration and add the missing monitor ("monitor 2").

Your system has likely simply "forgotten" the configuration.

To confirm that this is a video configuration issue, swap the monitor connections on your video card (at the back of your computer).

If the problem is configuration, the previously "missing" monitor will now be working and the other will not.

In other words, the "working" monitor is likely "monitor 1" in your video configuration and the "missing" monitor is likely "monitor 2".


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you
BJ

A fast blinking power light is an indication that the power supply is in a shorted condition. Parts called capacitors that filter the output power on the power supply board can fail and the power supply will short out causing the fast blinking power light. If you can solder then you can repair the monitor. Here is a link to a repair guide that has pictures and videos showing how to dis-assemble the unit and what to look for and replace to do the repair.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed Samsung monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Hi I have a samsung syncMaster 920N The screen has suddenly gone blank - the power light is showing. I have a second identical monitor and have swapped cables but no difference Is it a repairable fault?...


This happened to me a few months back. I removed all cables and left it for 2 days. Switched back on on it worked fine. That is until yesterday when half the screen went black. I found that my driver was out of date. I have undated the driver but have decided to leave it off and unplugged for another day.
You could try this. You say you have another monitor, i would suggest using it for a few days and the try the old one again.
