I try to change my computer monitor settings but they won't change. why?


You should be able to click Start/Control Panel and then look for Display or Display and Personalization.When it opens up select the Settings tab and click on 1 to select your lcd display. There should be two numbers 1 for lcd and 2 for external monitor.

You might be able to do it by keystrokes on your keyboard. Normally you can Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the key that toggles the display. The key that toggles the display will normally have LCD/CRT on it or it might have the icon of a display. It toggles between 3 modes (LCD Only, CRT Only or Both LCD and external CRT).

You could try reinstalling your Video Drivers but you would need to be in Safe Mode With Networking to give you internet connectivity. When it boots up open your internet browser and download and install the Video Drivers.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Video drivers.



If all fails you could do a System Restore to a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having the problem. Don't worry, System Restore does not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Point you selected).



Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore then select a date and time (Restore Point) that was before you started having problems.

How to Resolve a Video issue


A lot of people do encounter problems relating to video. These are issues wherein they get corrupted video output,vertical lines, horizontal lines or no video at all. To be able to resolve these types of issues, we need to identify if we have a hardware failure of a software failure. In this discussion, I lined up a step by step procedure which will help you first identify the point of failure and hopefully resolve the issue.

First step is to identify if it is a hardware failure or not. In able to do that, all you have to do is to boot to the Sysem Configuration (BIOS) screen. Booting to the BIOS differs per manufacturer. What you can do is to observe your computer as it boots. Usually on first splach screen where you see the specifications of your computer, you will be able to see they special key needed to be pressed to get to the BIOS. Here are some keys that are you can try out to boot to the BIOS.

  • Del
  • F1
  • F2
  • F10
  • F9
  • ESC

What you need to do is to tap the key as the computer turns on.

If the issue is seen in the BIOS screen, that means that there is a hardware that needs replacement. It could either be the video card or the monitor (or LCD screen for a portable system). To futher isolate, you need a known working monitor. For a desktop, you just need to replace the monitor with a known good one. For a laptop, you need to connect the monitor to the laptop and transfer the video to the known working monitor (you will need to check your manufactrer's manual for this, but usually the Fn+F5 key works). If the issue is there in the new monitor, that means you need to buy a new video card. If there are no issues on the known working monitor, that means that you need to have your display replaced.

If the computer has passed the BIOS test, you need to see where the issue occurs. The next step is to boot to Safe Mode.
Safe mode is a troubleshooting state where only the basic applications and drivers are active. If you are having errors or boot failure, try to boot to Safe Mode.


vincent_von_2.png


Booting to Safe Mode:1. turn computer on and tap on F8 before Windows starts.2. You will be getting the Advanced Boot options. Use the arrow keys to get to the option for Safe Mode.

If you do encounter the failure in safemode, that means your video card is failing already or about to fail. What you will need to do is to reinstall the video driver of your computer and hopefully it works. If it does not, you will need to have it replaced.

Since we are already in Safe Mode, might as well uninstall the video driver of your computer so that we can install a working version.

Steps to uninstall the video driver.
  1. Press the Windows key + R. A run dialogue box will appear.
  2. Type devmgmt.msc on the run box then click on ok.
  3. The device manager would appear (for Vista and Win 7 you will normally get the UAC first. Just click ok on it). Look for an item named Display adapter. Click on the plus sign beside it.
  4. Right click on the item under display adapter and then choose the option that said uninstall.
  5. Restart the computer into the normal mode.

vincent_von_3.jpg

Once you are in the normal mode, you will notice that the screen resolution will be different, the icons are a lot larger than normal. This is because the what you have is just the basic video driver. You need to reinstall the advanced video driver of your computer. It is either you download it from the manufacturer's website or from the CD that come with your computer.

Here are some websites that might help in finding the appropriate driver for your computer.

How to troubleshoot video issues?


Instruction:
To troubleshoot video issues, follow these steps and test your video after performing each one:
  1. Check the video signal cable connector for bent or missing pins. Check the cable for cuts.

  2. Check to see if moving the monitor connections slightly causes color changes. Tighten loose connections.

  3. In the case of systems with multiple video output connections, verify that the correct connection is being used.
    • Some systems ship with two video connectors on the back, however only one is enabled.
matrix12.jpgExample of a desktop computer equipped with 2 video output connectors.
  1. Standard on board video connection
  2. Optional video adapter connection (some models)
  1. If the monitor has multiple inputs, remove the secondary connections from the computer.

  2. Remove all signal cable extensions and Keyboard, Video, and Mouse (KVM) switch boxes.
    • Use of these devices can result in severely degraded video quality or no video symptoms.

  3. Eliminate wire bundles and magnetic fields from nearby appliances, such as those from speakers, as possible influences on color quality.

  4. If applicable, remove and reseat the video adapter card.

  5. Check to see if the display is visible and check for proper color during startup.

  6. Verify that the video is working by booting to the operating system in Safe Mode.
    • To enter Safe mode press F8 when the Windows logo first appears on the screen during system startup.

  7. Ensure that the most recent video driver has been installed.
    1. Right click on the Windows desktop.
    2. Click Properties.
    3. Click the Settings tab.
    4. Click the Advanced button.
    5. Click the Adapter tab.
    6. Click the Properties button.
    7. Click the Driver tab.
    8. Compare the Driver Version: with the current version and update if needed.
  8. Run the monitor setup program.
    • Some monitors are supplied with setup programs on CD-ROM or diskette. Follow the manufacturers directions.
    • Readability can be improved on some systems by running the Microsoft ClearType tuner.
  9. Check video quality by changing the hardware video adapter to the lowest available resolution.
    1. Right click on the Windows desktop.
    2. Click Properties.
    3. Click the Settings tab.
    4. Use the Screen resolution sliding selector to change resolution.
      The resolution selections available should be limited to the capabilities of the video adapter.
    • Some of the selections available may exceed the monitor capabilities and result in a temporary black screen.
    1. Click OK.
    2. Compare results with other screen resolution selections.

  10. Ensure that the display being used can support the video refresh rate and screen resolution specified in display properties.
    • The manual for your monitor should list the supported refresh rates and screen resolutions.
    • Open the Display Properties dialog box to verify that the refresh rate and screen resolutions are set properly:

      1. In the Properties window, click Settings.
      2. Click Advanced.
      3. Select the Monitor tab to view or change the refresh rate for the monitor.
Notes:
  • Some system boards ship with the AGP slot disabled and plugged. These slots have been disabled at the chipset level and do not work. The plugs should not be removed.
  • Some AGP adapters use a retaining clip, which must be moved to one side to prevent damage when removing the adapter.
  • Setting the video resolution to 640x480x16 colors in Device Manager is not the same as changing the hardware to a VGA adapter. You must change the adapter selection from the installed adapter, i.e. ATI, nVidia, or Matrox, to a standard VGA adapter in the Display Properties dialog box.
  • Some Intel chipsets uses Dynamic Video Memory technology (DVMT) for video memory. The initial memory count can indicate less than expected system memory count.
  • Signal cable extensions and keyboard, video, mouse (KVM) switches are not supported.

When booting the cp is going to power saving mode


Unplug power sources for the monitor and computer.

Hold down the power button of the computer tower for 10 seconds, this will drain remaining from the motherboard.

Plug back in the power sources for the monitor and computer tower.

Power on the monitor first, make sure the monitor power button will turn green then amber.

Power on the computer tower.

Try to check if you were able to see the Dell blue logo just right after you power on the computer.

If you were able to see the Dell blue logo then do these steps:

1. Turn off computer then turn it back on then immediately keep tapping on the F8 key. If options will appear please select safe mode.

2. If you were able to access in safe mode the problem we have is the video card driver needs to be uninstall then reinstall. To uninstall/reinstall the video card driver. Once you access the safe mode go to device manager then uninstall the display driver. Reinstall the display driver using the CD drivers came with the computer.

3. If you were not able to access safe mode then try again step 1, when you reach the option screen then select "last known good configuration".

If all fails from these steps, back up your HD files by asking a local tech to use an enclosure to copy all your data from your HDD to a different storage cause this will end up reinstalling the windows operating system.


Just in case just right after you power on the computer and it immediately gave you the message entering powe safe mode then you need to re-seat the video card which needs to open the side cover of your computer.

Re-seating the video card ut's just like taking it out from the slot then put it back again, make sure it's properly seated.

I have a Samsung Syncmaster 740NW, using XP, I cannot change the screen resution using the "settings" tab in display properties to anything other than 800X600 pixels


Sounds a lot like your display driver is not installed properly. What is the make of the video card? It should display that information above the slider.

If it's blank or unknown on plug and play monitor (or whatever monitor you have), then the video driver is not installed properly. That's a whole other question which will require more information.

Computer monitor comes on for 1 seconds, flashes "analog power save mode" and then goes black.


Most monitors will say "Power save mode" when they can tell through residual voltage that the signal lead is plugged into a machine, but there's no picture being transmitted. The four states of a monitor are:

* Off entirely.
* Switched on, plugged into a computer but no video signal being received - usually displays "analog power save mode" or "digital power save mode" for a few seconds, then blanks. Comes back to life the moment a video signal is received. This state is the default in full power saving mode.
* Switched on, not plugged into a computer. Some monitors don't display anything, some go into power saving mode, some fly "CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" or a similar message around the screen. Picture is restored when the signal cable is plugged back into the computer
* On fully, receiving an image, and displaying.

Hope this helps.

No video display


If the video card is built into the motherboard then try starting in safe mode and reinstalling the drivers from scratch. Download the latest drivers from the dell website. Safe mode will reduce the resolution and use a generic VGA driver. If your video card is plugged into a PCI slot try unplugging the video card and using a different slot and going through the same process. If you are still not getting any output to your monitor and you are positive the monitor is fine then you may need a new video card. To be sure, if the video card isn't embedded to the mother board, you could take it out and try it in a different computer. Hope that helps.

Black screen comes up "windows did not start successfully...." choose from safe mode, safe mode with networking etc Last known Configuration or Start Windows Normally. Computer then tries to...


You should opt Safe Mode:
  • On the black screen just navigate throug up and down arrow keys.
  • Goto Safe Mode and press enter.
  • It will boot your system in safe mode.
If the boot is success full:
  • try to remember any software or hardware you recently installed/change. Then remove/uninstall that software/hardware. Also remove some device driver like Video/Audio driver and make re-start. and try to normal boot. If success then install your audio/video.
If no success then I think its time to re-install your windows.
Please post your feed-back.
