You have PC problem nto monitor problem since you can see the mouse.
Try booting in safe mode (hit F8) while booting up then go to system restore and set it back to the date you remember before the problem started.
Did you installed any new software or updates before this problem started?

You might need to change the screen refresh rate. Go do Control Panel> Display> Setting> Advance, choose 60 Hz. In order to make your Monitor able to display, restart the PC, press F8 on the keyboard frequently upon splashing ( 1 or 2 seconds after PC restarts). Select enable VGA mode by pressing up arrow of the keyboard> press enter. The display should look bigger, then you can start adjusting the screen refresh rate to 60 Hz

Your trying to downgrade this means you have to use vista cd to format the hard driver, and after the laptop restart, load the Xp. Also sometimes this code comes if you donot use the original xp windows.

Yes. Do not turn the monitor off by its power switch, let the computer do the work for you. Alot of times when people use the power switch to turn off the monitor, the computer sees that all of a sudden the monitor has been disconnected from the pc. when that happens the pc sees it as a device beimg unplugged and removes that certain device from the pc's list of things that should be connected, and when you turn it back on the pc sees it again and starts loading drivers for that new part(monitor)

How to troubleshoot a Samsung SyncMaster 743NX LCD Monitor? My Samsung SyncMaster 743NX monitor turns on slowly. I mean,last week when I started up my pc,it took 5-10 mins before my monitor displayed anything. I know the pc is already turned on because I've already heard the Windows Vista start up tune play. The problem is now getting worse as it now takes 20-30 mins before my monitor displays anything. Please help.

Comp wont turn on


ok, all three lights is a hardware problem - this is usually related to CPU problems in the machine but can also be a sign of MB faults too - first up - remove and replace the ram - both sticks - one under the kb and the one in the bottom cavity too - if this doesnt work - i suggest either taking it in for checkup to a qualified service centre or if your feeling confident then remove the palmrest and heatsink, unlock and reseat the cpu and then try starting again

cheers

PC does not hold the monitor wide screen setting.


Do you mean your internet explorer window?  You need to stretch the explorer window to the size you like, then close, it.  IE remembers the size of the last window you closed, and then when you open it, it makes the new window the same size as the last 1.

 

Hope this helps.
