    I just purchased brand new system: P4 2.66GHz Quad with 4 Gb Mem. and an Nvidia G9500GT video card and using the LG W2242T monitor. I am having the exact same issue. Periodically the screen will go black. Moving the mouse or the keyboard usually brings it back. Sometimes I have to power off and on the monitor.



    I am using the recommended display settings. If this is not fixed I may take the monitor back and get a different brand.



    Any suggestions or solutions would be greatly appreciated!



    Thanks.

    I own a W2242T LG monitor. Yesterday I noticed a vertical line running from the top of the monitor to the bottom, about 3 and a 1/2 inches from the left side. Its colored light blue. Has anyone else experienced this?

I have exactly the same problem with my LG W2242T Monitor. Works fine with on board graphix but cannot run at 1650 x 1080. Tried on GeForce 6200, Card recognizes monitor & runs at this resolution, but blacks out regularly for about 1/2 to 1 second at a time. Not sure what problem is but am beginning to think that the computer power supply may be the problem. Is it possible that 350w is running low on juice when graphics performance is required. Note... it only seems to happen when a: Screen has a large amount of white (eg, when exploring files full screen or opening new web page) or b: when using Internet explorer. Have tried using compatibility mode, but to no avail.

According to your manual, the recommended resolution for this monitor is 1680 x 1050 @ 60 hz. Is this the display setting you are using? Manual is at http://www.lge.com/products/mobile/cdma_manulist_gcsc.jsp.

You should be able to use the driver supplied by the manufacturer, and it should not cause problems! If you are in the U.S., support contact info is at http://www.lge.com/support/gcscWrite.jsp, and includes phone number. Given that this monitor is new, I would suggest telephoning LG for support, and if it is not resolved sufficiently, returning the monitor. This monitor should run perfectly with the supplied driver, and if not, there is a hardware malfunction or conflict. LG should be able to tell you definitively if there is a way to solve the problem, and if not, suggest that you return and replace it.

Please post back if you need more help, otherwise thank you for using and rating FixYa!

How to make the audio port of LG E2350V work whe you connect speakers


You have to use an hdmi connection to make it work. Connect hdmi cable from your video card to the lcd monitor, and connect your computer speakers at the back of the lcd. When you connect a dvi cable or a vga cable from your video card to the lcd, the audio port would not work.

Hi

I'm not sure what you mean by VGI. I will assume you mean VGA (Analogue - D Shaped with 15 pinholes).

When pixels or line of lixels fail on a monitor, they usually fail in spots or in a vertical lines due to the design of the matrix.

Since both monitors are sharing a single cable and the graphics card is a new one, the fault automatically isolates itself to either the monitor or its VGA connector.

Check that none of the pins in the end that connects to the faulty monitor are bent and/or touching one another and shorting.

Then try changing the resolution of the graphics card itself and test the monitor's performance at various settings to see if the resolution seeting is straining against the limits of the monitors range.

Right click on open space in the desktop > properties > settings > click and hold the slider scale step by step, up and down the scaled to test the monitor > apply > ok > test for a reasonable period > reset.

Also test the monitor with a single VGA cable to another computer (even a laptop, using the Fn key + external monitor function key).

Thses tests should tell you if the monitor is failing.

I hope this helps.

I have a dell dimension 3000, bought a new HP 2310E monitor with 3 ports. DVI, HDMI & display port. Told to buy a cable with VGA to connect to dell and DVI to connect to HP Monitor display port....


Hi sshorne9780,

I see that you are having a check input error on the Monitor/LCD that your are connecting to your Dell tower, please see steps below.

  • On your HP 2310E make sure that your HP is set to the input/source that you are using and make sure that you only use one type of video cable for the issue.
  • I see that you mentioned that you have a VGA cable and a DVI cable, you can only use one type of cable for a video connection.
  • VGA would be the Blue tipped cable connecting to the tower and going to the LCD monitor.
  • DVI this is a black cable connecting to a white port much bigger than a VGA port and is rectangular in shape unlike the VGA
  • moz-screenshot.pngmvincentc_34.jpg
  • and on your LCD monitor check the input type to see video from the tower.
  • everything seems to be OK you just need to change the input of your LCD monitor for the video to show up on the screen.
  • also if you are using HDMI for the video u will need to change the setting of your Audio and set HDMI as the Default to have Audio come out from the HDMI connection together with video, the HDMI viedo will automatically be detected as long as the LCD monitor's input is set to HDMI.
I hope that this will able to help resolve your concern.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

How do I get my PC video signal to my TV. I s there a way with a wireless router and how will that be connected to my TV. Thank you.


Hi, you can use basic video cables to get your TV to act as a monitor. It depends on which ports your computer and TV have. You can use an S-video cable, a serial cable (with the blue connector that many monitors use), an HDMI cable, or a DVI cable. If both your computer and your TV both have any of these same ports, all you need is the cable and you can have your TV receive video signals from your computer.

Hope that helps!

You need to set your system to output to the port the TV is on.
If it is a laptop, there is an F key to change from LCD to LCD+VIDEO to VIDEO.
If it is a desktop you need to go into your display settings (control panel or rt clk desktop/properties or whatever system you have).

DVI cable not working


If you still have your old monitor plug it back in for a bit and load the drivers for the new monitor (from the disk which came with the new monitor). Right click on your desktop and choose properties and set your display resolution to something like 1024 x 768. Shut down the pc and connect your new monitor to it with the dvi adapter. If it is recognised ok you can then set the resolution from 1024 x 768 to the recommended amount for your new screen. The refresh rate is also important as some lcd screens only work at a certain level. There should be an auto switch on the monitor and if you press this it sets the display to optimum, - or should do.
