Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I just bought a new Samsung 953bw monitor at Office Depot. I plugged it in and connected as per directions in the Quick Setup Guide. I placed the cd in the cpu and the monitor doesn't turn on. For some reason, though the box was factory sealed, there was no user's manual included, so I don't know what to do. Can you help me??? Thanks. Jana West

Sounds like the monitor is bad. Does the power light turn on when to press the power button or make a sound?

This is a new monitor, had it running 2 days, screen started flickering on/off every 8 seconds, then it went dead. All connections were tight. I just plugged in a old monitor to get on line since I am...


The monitor you just bought died - hardware failure. Take it back to the one from which you bought it and either replace it or get your money back.

Where is the video card on my emachines t6211?


The Video card is intergrated on the board if it has failed you will have to install a new video card there should be some open slots on the motherboard. Tiger direct is a good place to buy but you pick one up a best buy or office depot.

Samsung syncmaster 953bw


Oct 23, 2009- This is how it went for me..I have a Samsung SYNCMASTER2.gif 2053BW. I leave my monitor on and let it hybernate when I shut down PC. I'm 3 months outside of my warranty. Two weeks ago something started happening. I boot PC and video doesn't come up for 10 minutes, and when it came up it worked perfect. VC/Monitor/MB?? It became 20 minutes and ...now..I have the analog/digital box in top left screen, power light on monitor flashing, no menu available on monitor and none of the other buttons work for anything. I test the monitor on Laptop..nothing(same as above)..I break out the old(working) monitor from deep within the closet. Plug it in and I'm up and running. So...

HOW TO OPEN A SYNCMASTER 2053BW

NO SCREWS!!! Assuming that the stand mount has been pulled out..The seam around the screen frame is where you start. The frame has the prongs, the back cover has what the prongs slip over.The frame is coming off first! I got the side to open by finger, then used a small standard screwdriver to pry ever so gently(lifting frame from rearcover). Leave the power button assembly on the frame, pull wire only a little to relax any tension..you get about 3/4" in extra taped to panel. The hard part is done.;) Still holding the frame...Now lift the panel (where the power button assembly wiring goes under panel) with the power housing that is under it as a whole and you will see where the powerbuttonassemble detaches.Remove frame. Now..holding edges of panel into back cover, lift and flip the whole thing over and place panel face down on a perfectly flat surface..a towel on my desk works. Lift and remove back cover.Your now looking at the back of the board housing. The ribon is simple, on the panel end of the ribon, squeez the outer clips together and slide it away against the panel..The secondary tin plate is removable, two clips super close to where the sets of wires come around the housing and into the panel.Unhook the 4 plugs(pink inside/blue outside)...Now lift the power housing off of the panel. The big board has the power. One screw to remove a ground plate first. Two screws to remove power board. Pics from phone.56ec44b.jpg

Reassemble but DO NOT re-snap the frame into place....yet... Test it! There is a reason the caps got hot in the first place, therfore it has a good chance of happening again. This is not fullproof...but.....mine has been on now for close to 6 hours with no glitches whatsoever. So I have resnapped mine back together. I hope you can too. Oct 23, 2009- I must also add that this is one of the best producing monitors I have ever seen...in 60hz. The clarity is top notch. If you purchase one get the extended warranty. FYI...I paid $4.00 for those caps.

Does the Compaq s3310cl support a DVI monitor? I am looking at the Samsung 2243swx but it's only a DVI monitor and has no VGA capability. I can't find any info on whether my computer supports this kind of...


Hello, the integrated video card in the Compaq s3310cl doesn't have a DVI port, however you may purchase and DVI to VGA adapter which should allow you to hook up that Samsung 2243swx Monitor. Be aware there are various types of DVI connectors so match up the connector you require for you Samsung Monitor.

You might need to go into the monitor's setup menu and select the digital input. (That's DVI, by the way, for Digital Video Input, and not DV1.) Some monitors automatically detect the input but not all of them. Obviously, this doesn't apply if the Samsung has only a DVI input. It might also be necessary to tell the video card to turn on the DVI output. You can do this with your old AOC connected and use the video setting utility supplied with the video card.

I need to purchase a new connector cord to connect my montior to my computer. My cat chewed my old cord and it's not working properly. Thank you.


The monitor uses a widely-available standard VGA cable with what are called D-sub connectors at both ends. You should be able to find one at a large office supply place like Office Depot or a retailer like Best Buy. (If you're outside of the US, you probably have similar stores in your area.) You can also purchase the cable online. Here is a suitable cable from Newegg.com, a company I buy from frequently. I've just used this as an example. There are many other sources.
