Re: Re: Blank Monitor
Ok, give this a go.
Start the computer in safe mode as per last time.
This time go into the system properties.
Start - Control Panel - System
Select Device Manager
Find the Display Controllers
Uninstall the card
Restart the computer.
Failing this, download the drivers from the website that your motherboard is from. (If you give me a model number I should be able to loacte it) or goto thew S3 site and get them directly from there.
Start up in safe mode again, install those drivers. and restart.
If you can't find a way to transfer the drivers from the PC you are on to the PC that is not playing nice, then start it up using Safe Mode with Network Support.

You don't say which operating system you are using.
The monitor resolves images across a fixed range of resolutions and resfresh rates.
It is the resolution of the graphics card or graphics adapter that can be changed, not that of the monitor.
Right click on empty space on your desktop > properties > settings.
Left click and hold on the slider and slide to the right in stages.
Each resolution change offers you a test page to accept or reject.
When satisfied Apply > Yes > Ok.
To reset the Refresh Rate:
Properties > settings > Advanced > Refresh Rate.
Then restart your computer.
Be careful not to exceed the resolution/refresh rate range of your monitor (1280 x 1024) / 75.0 Hz because if you do, when you restart the computer, the monitor will be unable to resolve the image and you will get a blank screen and/or an Out Of Range error message.
An out of range problem might only be resolved by using a different monitor to reset the resolution back to within the range of the preferred monitor.
To change the resolution, right click on the desktop and select properties, then in the settings tab, select the resoloution you would like. Normaly 1024X768 or 2180X1024. Depends on the monitor but I would say 1024X768 with 32bit colour.
Otherwise if is 1024X768 is not supported then it is a Graphics driver problem. Download the latest Nvidia drivers for your Graphics card by typing the model into google.
Your timely rating of this soloution is much appreciated.
sounds like you have to set the monitor resolution using your computer. right click desktop...
graphics options. or Properties. look for Resolution slider. Move it around. press apply. see what happens. if it now fits but is fuzzy. change the refresh rate eg. 60 Hz or 75 Hz.
On the monitor itself there is typically a button that allows you to move the image to fit the screen, quite often these settings are inadvertently played with by children ect. look for buttons/ menu's on your monitor itself. play with the settings .
Try setting your graphics card output to something simpler like a basic 640x480 resolution 64k colours and see if it still does it... it maybe that you have the resolution/colour depth to high for the monitor to properly handle
if it is stable at the lower setting slowly increase untill you reach a point that you and your monitor are both happy
i think you have problem with your graphics card. restart your computer and then before starting to windows press F8 to set your settings to safe mood, after booting up to windows restart the system again.if the problem persist reinstall the software drive of your graphics card if you have it.
I have the same problem! Here's what I did: Go into the Display control panel, go to SETTINGS, click on ADVANCED, and then on the ADAPTER tab, then on LIST ALL MODES. There are several 1400 settings. Try them out and see which one is best for you.
OK you need to try this monitor on another pc so as to write off a faulty graphics card.
If your settings on monitor match the pc and youve tried the auto settings button, there is a faulty lcd for replacement.
