Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

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 brightness, but haven't found the right combination. I know it should be set to 1900 x 1200, but everything is way too small. Help! Thanks

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".

I turn the monitor on and the blue light is on but the screen remains black. How can this be fixed? What could be the problem? How can I get this replaced if need be?


stjohnschris, If Samsung warranty no longer usable option, then you will need to fix it yourself. Have you even checked with Samsung to see if they offer a "cash+old unit" swapout program?? Watch a few video clips at YOUTUBE after search with these terms: "lcd monitor disassembly" "lcd monitor repair. Then come back to FIXYA and do lots of reading in the fixya PROFILES of "budmrtn" "buddymc" "12fixlouie" (me) for more help and links that you will need to repair the 245BW. Keep us informed by doing additional REPLYS to this posting. 12fixlouie

Samsung Syncmaster 245BW sync problem


If you are plugged into a NVIDIA graphics card, use the NVIDIA control panel scaling option to "do not scale" then set the resolution to 1920x1080. This monitor is a 16:10 aspect ratio instead of 16:9 like HD TV's, so it is necessary to turn of scaling from the software and thus give black bars.

Samsung Syncmaster 245BW, can't get it up and running !


Most of the time when this happens it is due to a bad monitor, if you have another pc try to hook this monitor up to that one to see if it actually works, these monitors sometimes get damaged during shipment!
