    Thank you "Breeze." I could find no drivers at Samsung...one of their techies suggested I take it to be serviced. Instead, I bought a new monitor.

I took this excerpt from a review on pricegrabber.com:
Second, unless you're running Vista already (where a driver is auto installed), there's no other driver available to date - not on any site out there, not even on Samsung's own website and most certainly (and most embarrassingly) not on the installation disc that is provided with the monitor. This is rather amateurish mistakes for a global company, so hopefully they'll get with the program soon and fix this issue. Mistakes aside, it's not enough to damage the reputation of the monitor. If you have to get yourself a new LCD, this is the one to get.

You're going to need a driver for Windows 7, and I'm not sure what the answer is to this one- doesn't look good from that report. Maybe they have developed one since that review, but you will have to contact Samsung Support and see what can be done about this. Here's their support number:

Wish I had better news, but it sure sounds line the driver.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Can you help me with my Compaq Resario R3000 Notebook, it has a barely visible screen upon initialization


Looks like your Laptop Inverter is Faulty and will Require buying a new one to brighten up your LCD or the Backlight on the LCD is faulty, the other problem with it shutting off while waitting for it to fully load maybe the FAN that keeps it cool to run is blocked and needs clearing.

E-yama monitor "out of range"


The fix was pretty easy in the end.

Instructions are based upon Windows XP Pro OS.

Re-boot computer but inerrupt start-up by pressing F8 (option will vary between computers)

Select SAFE mode but with VGA option in order that the screen will actually display.

Once fully loaded click:

Start
Control Panel
Appearance and Themes
Display
Settings

Using the mouse cursor adjust Screen Resolution sliding scale until the ratio matches your monitor e.g. 1280 x 1084

Then click Apply and OK (important to do it in this order otherwise changes will not be saved)

Reboot as normal and the monitor should now display correctly.

Sony vaio PCG-GRT30P Screen Problem


You could have a defective screen, either a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp - follow this to determine the fault.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Computer monitor becomes distorted after boot up.


Hi,

Download and install the correct driver for the monito as well as the deiver for your video card, if the video is onboard, you may need the motherboard and AGP driver as well.
You will probably need to boot in Safemode to do this.
Good Luck.

My HP monitor (f50) has malfunctioned


Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)

Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
  • If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a compatible resolution:
    NOTE: Find the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
    1. Turn on the computer and press the F8 key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
    2. If you are using Windows Vista, select Enable low resolution video (640 x 480) , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document, Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista . If you are using Windows XP, select Enable VGA Mode , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution. If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select Safe Mode and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:
      1. Once Windows opens to the desktop in Safe Mode, click Start , and Run .
      2. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter . The MS Configuration Utility window appears.
      3. Click the Advanced button, and select VGA 640 x 480 x 16 if it is available.
      4. Click OK and restart the computer.
      5. After Windows opens, click Start , and then click Run .
      6. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter .
      7. Click the Advanced button, and remove the checkmark next to VGA 640 x 480 x 16 .
      8. Click OK . Do NOT restart the computer.
    3. After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties (Windows XP, 98/Me) or Personalize (Windows Vista).
    4. In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click Display Properties . In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the Settings tab.
    5. In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to True Color .
    6. Click Apply after you have made your adjustment. The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
    7. If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click Yes on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way it was before. Try another setting until you find a display configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
      NOTE: If the native resolution is not available, download and install updated video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
    8. Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
Step 2: Connect to another monitor
Using a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the original computer to another monitor that works to update its video drivers.
  • If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.
