    Dear Steve,



    thank you for your help, your advice re dragging worked but I had hoped to transfer my desktop complete with taskbar to the new monitor. Also, I thought that I should be able to close the lid of my laptop instead of having two screens on my desk. Any advice on this?

You have the graphics driver set to Extended Desktop.
If you move the cursor to the right, can you see it on the new monitor?
If so you can drag any application window over to the new monitor.
If you don't like this then right-click on the desktop wallpaper and choose Properties, then find an Advanced tab and an Extended Desktop checkbox and uncheck it.

    Disable the extended desktop and it will do what you want.

    Control Panel - Display - Properties - Advanced - ????

Hello Xylla,

You have not mentioned which model of Alienware Laptop you have but, there should be reference to adjusting the brightness in the manual.
Try using <Function Key> + <F4> or <Function Key> + <F5> to adjust the brightness.
I hope this helps.


Kind regards,

Seems that you may have the wrong type of video selection theres a button for auto sensing the type of connection. if your video cable is blue then you have an analog connection, white video cable is a digital connection you just need to ensure that the monitor is set to the proper selection.

I have Syncmaster 2232bw. When I first switch it on it flashes for about 1 minute before it stopsa flashing. After that it runs fine until I switch off and it cools. Is this the backlight dying?


This happened with my 2232bw also. The problem was that the 5 820uF capacitors that had burnt out so I replaced them with 5 1000uF capacitors and it's now working like a dream.
Hope This Helps

Hotkeys don't seem to work correctly


Most likely Missing Drivers.. Go to the manufacturers website and get updated drivers for your make/model... mainly the chipset drivers, mainboard drivers, usb/hotkey/keyboard drivers etc....

No sound in sm2232bw monitor


CURSE YOU SAMSUNG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, I'm done now. Some monitors require a separate power supply for their speakers. I don't know if yours would have one, so you'll have to check. Also, are you sure that you have it connected properly? It you do, are you sure that the monitor has built-in speakers? Once you have checked these things, get back to me.

Please do not adjust RGB unless you know what you are doing.
For critical color work, you will need to use a photospectrometer and calibration software to analyze what your monitor is spitting out.
There are a million obvious reasons you should not trust your eye making arbitrary RGB adjustments off the hip.
