Is this a flat sceen or is it an older monitor? It's got to be an old monitor, unless the viseo on your motherboard has been dameged by power spikes. If it's a CRT type, the large one, it will cost to have it fixed. Cheaper to go on the Internet and order a Flat. There's lots of them on eBAY, and the seller has to make good, and they ship it to your door.

Just finished a project a while ago getting rid of almost 100 monitors. They just burn out after 4 years or more.

When I am downloading a film...I leave my PC on but when I go back to it after about half an hour it has switched itself off stoopping my download can you help please ty mike


There is little info on your problem but I think you mean the screen went black while downloading a film. Normally computer monitors turn themselves off (dormant) to save energy and the life of the monitor's screen if not used for 10 or 30 minutes, depending on the settings, but the download just keeps going. Mine is set to 10 minutes. All you have to do is disturb the Mouse and see if the monitor screen switches itself on. There is another power saving option, and that is the Computer itself. If the computer is not used for one hour, it too goes dormant, but can also be set to switch itself completely off after the download is completed. However, if a computer is left on for over an hour, it can switch itself off to save energy and the computer's own wear and tear. It all depends on the computer hardware and the settings. If it is hardware controlled, then it may or may not switch itself off but it still goes dormant. Or it can be set to whatever you wish it to do, stay on all the time, go dormant after a set time or switch off if there is no prolonged activity.

How do I find and remove Video card 1 and how do I know if it's bad?


You do not say what version of Windows you have.

Press start then run
copy the the text below, enter it into the box and press enter:

sfc /scannow

wait until it has finished.

Go to control panel/ system/device manager. Are there any yellow triangles? double click the monitor. Is the driver OK?

Computer monitor has blurry display


If you have another PC in the house, try plugging in your monitor to that PC instead, and see if the issue follow the monitor. If it does, you could do a Factory Reset on your monitor to see if the issue is fixed. You can do this by Hitting Menu button on your Monitor and finding the Factory reset Option. IF the issue is not fixed, you will most likely need a new monitor, you can easily find one online or at a local store for under 100 dollars.

Having problem with blurry pictures,loading fast blurry pic,


yeah you changed the quality of the picture with the speed choice, you can attempt to fix it using an image editing program. If you downloaded this picture as it sounds then you can just download it again, and choose the slow option, but if it doesn't give you the choice it will be in the preferences or tools menu in your browser

My Dad bought a NEC 1700v Monitor about 5 years ago. Its a good monitor and the picture/color is still good but it blacks out after it shows desktop for about 10 seconds. To get it to come back on, can...


This is a CRT monitor right? Do not open the case! There is high voltage stored in a capacitor somewhere in there and you could get zapped. You can buy good used monitors at Goodwill or a computer re-cycler for $20.00. If yours lasted five years you got your moneys worth. Did this monitor work correctly on other computers? If it did maybe you have a problem with your graphics card or something in the computer itself. Try a different monitor on your computer. If everything is OK with a different monitor then you know that your computer is good and that is not the problem.

My samsung monitor is starting to have really bold and a bit blurry type showing up on the screen. Is it possibly going out? Not all of the type is this way just the far right side?


Bro your monitor is broken, and is on the verge of breaking down. I had a similar problem and had it repaired at the shop I bought it at. Problem was fixed, then broke down and nothing would appear on the screen. I bought a new one. Maybe you should do the same bro.

I have just got this 22'lcd Samsung 225ms. I cannot seam to fix the problem of blurry letters. This can be very hard to read even at a distance. I have searched for updates online for my nvidia g force...


This monitor will only have a sharp image at a resolution of 1680 x 1050. Any lower setting will result in blurry images.

In an LCD the pixels are fixed, and using any resolution lower than the optimal will cause blurry images. This is called Image Scaling:

If that resolution causes the icons to be too small, you can change the DPI setting to 120 from 96, that will make them larger
