This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.

  1. Monitor is not on
  2. Computer is asleep
  3. Connections not connected properly.
  4. Monitor settings are not correct.
  5. No Post.
  6. Hardware issue.
Solution:The following is monitor troubleshooting. If your monitor receives a proper display until it gets into Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP please refer to document CH000192.

Monitor is not on

Make sure the monitor is on. If no power light (green or orange light) is seen on the monitor display try pressing the power button until it comes on. If no light comes on after several attempts continue to below connections not connected properly.

Computer is asleep

If your computer monitor was on and you stepped away from the computer and upon returning it was black it's likely that the computer is asleep. Try moving your mouse, clicking the mouse buttons, and/or pressing any key (space bar) on the keyboard to wake it up.

Connections not connected properly

my monitor is plugged in - vga.jpgMake sure that you are connecting the monitor to the back of the computer in the 15-pin connector as shown to the right or older computer 9-pin connection.

If the computer is properly plugged in, make sure it's getting getting power.

If you are not receiving power from a known working wall outlet and if the power cord is removable, replace it with the one connected to the computer and attempt to power on the monitor again. If the monitor still does not get power or it is not removable, it is recommended that the monitor be replaced or serviced at a local TV / Computer repair shop.

If the monitor is receiving power, check the status light.

If the light is orange or flashing ensure that the monitor is not in a suspend mode by moving the mouse or pressing a key on the keyboard. If the computer does not get a display by moving the mouse or touching the keyboard, turn off the computer and monitor and reconnect the data cable from the back of the computer, and if removable, the back of the monitor. Turn the computer back on; if you still encounter the same issue, continue reading through the other possibilities.

Monitor settings are not correct

Ensure that the brightness and contrast is turned up or attempt to adjust the brightness and contrast. If adjusting the brightness or contrast has no affect on the monitor continue reading through the other possibilities.

No Post

Does the computer beep when it is powered on and/or does it appear that the computer has activity? If the computer does not beep or beeps abnormally it is possible that the computer itself is experiencing a hardware issue or is exhibiting a No Post.

Steps on troubleshooting an irregular POST or no beeps can be found on document CH000607.

Hardware Issue

If you have followed the above recommendations and are still encountering the same issue, it is likely that the computer may have either a bad video card or monitor. The best method of determining this is to do one or both of the following:

  • Disconnect your monitor and attempt to connect it to another computer. This can be a friend or family's computer and/or it can be taken to a service center.
  • Borrow a computer monitor and connect it to your computer. This will not harm the other computer monitor in any way.

If your monitor works on another computer it is safe to assume that the video card or potentially the motherboard within the computer is bad. Steps in troubleshooting a video card can be found on document CH001028.

If another monitor works on your computer it is safe to assume that your monitor is bad.
PLEASE ACCEPT IF YOU SATISFAID

Monitor won't turn on I have connected everything properly and still no signal


I didn't see whether the power strip where you have all devices plugged in was turned on. Plus, you only showed one side of the monitor. There should be an indicator light on the monitor which indicates that electricity is running through the unit. Lastly, did you read the owner's manual before putting this unit together? Check all options and let me know what happens.

This may sound ridiculous, but I recently spent two weeks troubleshooting a monitor that wouldn't display properly. Turns out it wasn't plugged in all the way. Make sure that it is plugged in properly, and that your computer/device is displaying TO that monitor.

The monitor needs its own power supply, so it will need an AC outlet.. All the computer can do is send out the video signal to be displayed. If you were hoping to use the external monitor somewhere where you won't have AC power, you're out of luck. Sorry.

A blinking power light typically means there is no signal from the video card, so check the connections and try another monitor (or plug the monitor into another computer) first to see if the video card is perhaps the real culprit.

Is it attached to your computer via a VGA cable or DVI cable if it is vga then that is your problem

If your graphics card does not have DVI then you will not be able to make best use of that monitor.

Samsung 226bw weird display problems


At first you should clarify if your GPU or LCD is broken.
Do You have any chance to try another monitor with your Graphicadapter or to try your monitor on a different PC?
Moreover you should try it with a new cable.

The symptom of weird symbols sounds most likely like a overheated or wrong-plugged Graphicadapter
