Question about LG W2442PA-SF 24" LCD Widescreen 16:9 VGA DVI HDMI Tilt Pivot Swivel Height Adjustable Speakers 3 Ye... Monitor

Open Question

My Flatron W2442PA monitor has not been able to dislay full screen - the viewable area is smaller than the physical screen, about an inch short on each end of the diagnals - since I switched from DVI to HDMI data cable between the graphics card and the monitor. The display setting is system default (Windows 7 Pro) of 1920x1080 at 60Htz. Even more frustrating is that I cannot go back to DVI cable, because the system no longer recognizes it and the monitor simply does not light up when the computer is switched on!

Doesn't look very good :( You can try returning to the "factory settings" in your monitor's menu. Maybe try the monitor in another computer to check whether your graphics card is faulty. But all in all it looks like a fault from the monitor :( Good Luck!

SOURCE: How can I make fonts look good in an LCD monitor ?

The VGA connection should be fine; I have DVI and when I switched from analog, the difference was pretty minimal, to my eyes.

Is it just the fonts that are blurry, or everything? If fonts only, then this almost certainly suggests that running the ClearType tuner again would solve the problem. But this applies to all displays, so if one is good and the other is not, then this isn't it.

If everything is a little blurry, then this suggests one of two problems -- the first, you report trying, which is that the display adapter is set to a different resolution than the native resolution of the LCD monitor itself. Your display adapter should probably be able to drive 2 monitors (the built-in laptop monitor and the external monitor) at once. You should be able to set their resolutions separately.

Assuming Windows XP: Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings > at which point, you should see two monitors listed in a dropdown. Set them to their native resolutions there (using the slider bar, usually all the way to the right), and save.

If you do have the display resolutions set to their native resolutions for both monitors, then it's possible that your external monitor is messed up. A quick test would be to run the on-screen settings, usually from a button on the monitor itself. If what is displayed there is sharp and what is displayed from Windows is not, then this points to a problem with the display driver. If everything, even the on-screen display is blurry, then perhaps the monitor settings are messed up -- usually there's an option to restore to factory settings -- try that.

If that doesn't work, I'm probably out of ideas, unless you have further information.

SOURCE: Nothing on the screen at startup

If you cant get into the setup menu then I would think the monitor is defective,you did not state if you hooked up the monitor to a computer that has a vga port that works.

RAM if under heavy duress when it gets stuck by Page loads , which means " virtual Memory" just dips in . It's like a person who coughs a bit under some common cold simply because it's resistance has gone low .
Kick up some more RAM or use a RAM Booster , or install a " cache" reguling software .

This also happens to my vga connection to my TV.
I used my tv remote "auto" button to re-size it to fit correctly.
If your monitor/TV does not have the adjustment, you may need to
supply your vga compatible device with your monitor's driver software.
This tells your computer what monitor specifications you have.

Good Day, I have an LG Flatron W2442PA. The screen keeps dimming, re-adjusting the brightness etc. Can you please tell me how to fix this?


Power capacitor problem or failing board in the monitor. Best solution is to get it checked out by a professional. I'm assuming you have already tried this monitor on another computer or laptop? If not, try that first, if it then works ok, check the DVI lead and the graphics card on the computer you are using it on

Push the button on the Monitor to activate the OSD (On Screen Display). With the OSD, one can "stretch" the picture (horizontally/vertically) and "move" the picture (horizontally/vertically) in order to "fill" the viewable area with your compueter's output.

Monitor Display Messages Not Viewable


You may have components (capacitors) failure in the power supply circuits which will cause odd symptom.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
