Monitor not working

I have assembled a P-III CPU and tested it at home on my Samsung Monitor, but when I broght it in my Office and tried to use it with an HCL Monitor it showed the initial display but after booting I could not see the display, it showed as it required Horizontol control (as were there in older TVs), What is the reson and is there any remedy?

    Thank You very much for the suggetions, I have old monitors at my work place and none of them is an lcd. I am using XP Sp2 on my machine. I could partially start the work on the computer by pressing F8 while booting, and select the option of VGA. but this I have to do every time I want to use the computer. This thing was disclosed by a local repairer friend. I will try the options you gave me.

You will need to change the display settings for the type of lcd monitor you have, it is a wide screen I am assuming, you can change this by right clicking on the desktop select properties then settings the screen resolution should be on the middle left side and change this until you get a screen that you like There is also an advanced setting then select monitor at the top tab and change to refresh rate to the lowest setting (60 hz) this should get the HCL monitor up then change the setting until they dont work the operating system will revert to the previous settings if you cant see anything after a change. you may also need to use the automated setup on the lcd monitor select auto from the menu (osd). Now if you can not do this on the HCL lcd you may need to use that other Samsung monitor and then set up on that at the lowest resolution so that the lcd can be changed with a working screen. Lastly you may need to uninstall the samsung monitor drivers if you installed those, and leave the generic drivers in for the monitor (plug and play monitor).
I am making some guesses here as you did not tell me if the 1st Samsung monitor was a lcd also , and if the second HCL monitor is a wide screen etc what type of operating system are you running is also important 98 is fussy and 2000 is much more simplified as is XP , vista would be garbage (if you could get it to run on a pIII),
As for reasons for resolution problems, way too many variables to discuss in a short answer forum like this, sufficed to say that the resolution is different because in the past there were lower resolution (less pixels) on monitors, the refresh rates were different by manufacturers and the way the lines were scanned could be different, so setup of the monitor with the video card was also very important interlacing etc was also handled differently until that industry decided on a common standard.
I hope this helps you to get the monitor up and running.

There no diplay eccept lots of blue, red, green lines on the monitor, please help


Try another monitor if it works the way it should then it's the other monitor. If the result is the same reboot the computer in safe mode by tapping the f-8 key when you see fhe first splash screen choose safe mode. If it still messed up then you have a graphics problem. Take the computer in and have it tested.

I have a samsung 2033SW monitor which flickers very frequently displaying that "your optimal resolution is 1600x900.Follow the above settings to set".Though I have set the resolution to 1600x900...


- You can test the monitor by using another CPU, if still the same then the problem is monitor, but if it's working well then the problem is your CPU, to make it sure then you can try another monitor on your CPU. - check if the hardware connection is well attach, you can pull & re- plug the hardware just to make sure. - the monitor is need a DVI connection (white or gray) to run properly, if you use AGP connection ( blue ) on your VGA card that might the problem, so you can also try upgrade your VGA card. - other ways is to install the latest driver for your VGA card.

When i plug to the cpu monitor cut off the power and green light is blinc


Do one think just plug out Monitor to CPU cable , just on monitor only if so can you able to see one small icon go top to bottom its like keyboard, if you can see that, you don't have any problem on your monitor.

step 1 - just remove ram slot and insert again try to ON your system now

step 2 - take your cpu and connect to other monitor and check where it getting on or not , if monitor get ON and work good mean you don't have problem with your CPU , problem was in monitor to cpu cable ,so change your monitor cable its just cost of 4 to 5 $.

step 3 - take your monitor connect to another CPU , check weather you getting same problem if it work good mean, your CPU motherboard have problem just call your hardware engr to solve it,

GOOD LUCK ! if your problem solved don't forget to rate

My samsung syncmaster 794 monitor light is blinking but monitor not get on


If you tested that to another working CPU but the same problem before, i think that monitor has a problem in horizontal section, check the B+ atlaest 175v if is it normal the power supply is ok, check the H.O.T horizontal output transistor, remove or hang the 3 pins then power on the monitor, if the led did not blinking the H.O.T has fault may be leak,open or shorted.

Unplugged monitor. left home for a couple of days. Plugged monitor in and got no picture. Turned CPU on and off and the CPU does recognize it, but still no picture. the monitor power button just flashes.


Try it on another PC, if it still does not work and you want to DIY repair, please read below and look at pictures.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My wife's mom bought us a desk top p.c with this samsung 906bw


Well, seems like the CPU is the source of the problems, not the LCD Monitor.

The simple way to check it is by remove the cable from CPU unit, see for any sign such us color pattern moving or any sign.

the other way is, try using other CPU or Laptop, then connect it to the LCD Monitor.If it works, then you need to repair your CPU.

Hope it's working

No display in monitor


Hi,
Was the monitor tested, that it is working before it was delivered to you? Because it was still under warranty. If your system unit open ( a beep sound hear ) wihen your new monitor was attached only that their is no display but the monitor has a power, means it needs a video card with a driver to be installed. If you have another monitor try it to your computer if the problem still the same.
That's all

Samsung SyncMaster 17" LCD Blacks out


If you have a second monitor, you could use your computer until the monitor goes black... then plug in a replacement monitor. My guess is that one will display black too...

My gut feeling is that your VGA card is on the fritz... I'm not convinced it's your monitor. Do you have a replacement VGA card you can try? I'll bet that'll take care of the problem.
