Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I'm having problems with the Samsung 245BW. I bought the first one at Sam's Club and it developed some pixelation problems, i.e. blue and yellow horrizontal lines across the screen. I returned it to Sam's and they swapped me out for another one. Almost immediately, within a couple days time, it developed the same problem. I contacted Samsung and they sent me another one. Again, withing a couple days, the blue horizontal pixel lines are beginning to show. Now, I'm thinking, "3 out of 3 of these monitors have the same problem and perhaps its time to exchange it for another model of monitor." I'm curious what someone else thinks about this phenomenon. Plz get back to me ASAP with any suggestions. Thanx in advance. Wulf Strikin' out with the Samsung 245BW

Hi,
you can try this ,
check the monitor on the different wall outlet/ socket or check with different computer wheather it gives the same issue .. third option is check with both DVI and VGA ports differnetly.. please check wheather you are getting lines on the bios screen when u start the system because if you r getting lines on the BIOS screen (f1) then there is a issue with the monitor else issue with the video card ................try this ,if possible revert for the same issue

Keys stick. Right out of the box the keys stick and you have to start over. Canon MP18D11 bought at Sam's Club.


Take it back to the store further troubleshooting can make it worst and besides that unit still in warranty so Sam's Club can replace it with another one.

I have a single yellow vertical line running down the left side of my computer monitor, nothing has been dropped, and it doesn't appear when other monitors are plugged into the same computer.


Let me guess, its an LCD? Unfortunately this has happened with blue lines to our customers.

Sorry, but chances are you wont be able to do anything yourself, best to take it to where you bought it from (or ring the manufacturer) to get a replacement (if its still under warranty), else you may need to purchase a new one.

I have developed yellow dots in screen of new LCD tv what causes this and can it be repaired


I can only assume you're talking about a PC LCD Monitor.
How many yellow dots will tell you whether or not the manufacturer will replace. If it's 20 pixels in the same square inch then you might have a case. Inexpensive unknown brand name LCD's are known to have issues with random pixels. For that matter so have brand name LCD's, but less frequently. Having 1 or 2 bum pixels is not that uncommon. Call the manufacturer, though, You never know!

I just recently bought a Samsung 245BW monitor and am having problems getting the right setting. It looks OK, but I know it could look a lot better. I tried playing with different resolutions, contrast and...


1. Right-click on the Desktop.

2. Choose "Properties" from the Shortcut menu that appears.

3. Click on the Settings tab at the top of the Display Properties window.

4. Under Settings is a list or a scroll bar (depending on your Windows version) containing available screen resolutions. Click on or use the slider to select the resolution you want.

Lower resolutions will display larger letters and icons, while higher resolutions display smaller letters and icons on your desktop.

5. Click "Apply", then "OK".

6. You'll have fifteen seconds to decide if the new screen resolution looks good or not. If you like the way the screen looks, click "Yes"; otherwise, click "No" and go back to step 4 for a different resolution. (If you can't see the screen at all, Windows will automatically revert to your original settings after fifteen seconds.)

7. Click "OK".

Monitor is black and blue light flashing


Boot from safe mode and try a different pixel/color arrangement. Obviously a lower pixel and color setting.
