    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!

E2442tc driver


A monitor being identified as "Generic Plug & Play" is normally fine. LG does not have a driver listed on their website, so there probably isn't one anyway. Most monitors work very similarly, and Windows knows this. Hence the Generic Plug & Play device driver. Unless there is a problem, don't worry about it, that is perfectly normal.

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.

Hi sophie,

I see you want to extend you monito to an LG external monitor.

Have you tried selecting the input PC or the input that is for the cable that you are using for the Video.

If you are using HDMI select the Input HDMI on your LG if you are using DVI then you should select the input DVI to be able to get the signal from the Laptop come out of your LG.

I hope this helps.

Have a nice day,

Samsung SyncMaster 215tw screen goes black after about 1 sec.


I have the same problem its defenitly a problem with the lcd monitor not with the graphics card nor the pc. I hooked up the digital and afterwards the vga connection both had the same result. 1 s perfect screen all visible but than black. pushing the on/off or standby button again shortly 1s the display works than it blanks. Did the same test while connected to a dvd player via the composite video... same problem . Since the previous posts are that old and without a solution I guess there is no hope in getting it fixed.

Loss of DVI video/black screen


The problem is probably related to it showing the wrong video card. I would see if there is any help for everquest on changing that and if you cannot figure it out I would reinstall the game and that should fix your problem, keep in mind that you may have to uninstall in order to reinstall properly.
