Question about Samsung SyncMaster 915N 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Samsung SyncMaster 915N monitor

After one of Microsoft's patches, the Samsung SyncMaster 915N monitor goes black in 1280 X 1024 resolution. works OK in 1024 X 768. Monitor is attached to a Dell Optiplex 620 using the integrated graphics adaptor. System Restore to date prior to patch installation didn't fix so maybe the patch is just a coincidence.

Go into advanced settings from the settings tab of "display properties" and select the "monitor" tab, from there, try changing the refresh rate. Toggle "hide modes that this monitor cannot display" if you do not see any other settings in the drop down other than the one that is already selected.

I want to run a software which requires a screen resolution of 1280 x 768 but my Samsung SyncMaster 740nw supports up to 1280 x 700 screen resolution. Is there anything that I can do? Please guide.


Have you tried adjusting the screen resolution in Control Panel - Display - Settings and moving the slider on Screen resolution?
Normally a monitor such as Samsung LCD would be able to display a higher resolution.
If you cannot adjust the Screen resolution in Display - Settings then it may be that the correct video driver was not installed or is corrupted.
To check if the video diver is OK, go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager and click on Display adapter. Check that your display adapter is OK and working. If you see a yellow ? against the video adapter or a standard VGA adapter was installed then you need to re-install the video driver for your model graphics card.

After 5 years with no problems, my Samsung SyncMaster 915N monitor is blank with the exception of an error message that says something about needing optimum resolution. At first we thought it might be the...


The optimum resolution for this monitor is 1280x1,024 @60Hz.
The resolution setting is done at the PC not at the monitor.
After 5 years, more likely components failure will be the filter caps in the power supply section, that will be the first thing to look for inside. You can see failed SAMSUNG monitors here:

MY SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER MONITOR SCREEN DOES NOT COME ON WHEN I TRY TURNING IT ON. HOWEVER THE POWER BUTTON BLINKS GREEN. ANY ADVICE? THANKS SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER Monitor (black) 739S O seen at the back


The cable connecting to the PC might be loose, or the part entering the monitor could be.

Try turning the monitor on, and after a few seconds, turn on the computer. You should be able to see the BIOS POST screen text flashing by. If you can't, there is something wrong in your hardware settings.

If you can, however, that's the OS resolution set too high: the monitor shuts down to protect itself. Boot in safe mode by pressing the F8 key immediately after powering up, then lower the video resolution in Control Panel display settings to something safe - 1024 x 768 usually does the trick. At that point you can reboot in normal mode and raise the resolution again to the maximum supported by the monitor (check the manual for that).

Image blur


You need to check that display resolution in your Display properties is set to the native resolution for wide monitor typically 1440><900 for the size you mention.
Blurred image is due to using 4 : 3 resolution setting of 1024 >< 768 on a 16 : 9 wide monitor.

Sansung 915N no video


the monitor gets the wrong signal from the computer (refresh rate too high or scan rate too high )
check the screen refresh rate from Display properties / Settings tab / Advanced button / Monitor settings
worse case: damaged hardware

Monitor goes black


Does it show a picture in safe mode? If it does you might want to install drivers specific to the Monitor if you can find them.
