Aging message appear on samsung syncmaster 910mp


This message is generated when the backlighting tubes have aged so much they no longer are capable of operating normally - it's not a defect, your monitor has just worked too much.
You could replace the tubes, but new ones will cost you more than a new monitor. So either get them from a defective monitor sold for parts or just get a brand new monitor.

My Keyboard is brand new. We have replaced batteries, and pushed the reset button for 30 seconds, the indicator does not register new batteries or any batteries at all. Reset was synchronized with reset...


Possible reasons for no power to keyboard...
Batteries in wrong direction. Check orientation of each battery.
New batteries are actually bad. (replace)
Positive terminal is obstructed by packing strip (remove packing strip from batt compartment)
Positive nipple is too short and cannot reach terminal. (try a different brand battery)

I the keyboard lights up and will do all functions


You may want to remove the keyboard and reboot your unit without the keyboard connected.
After the unit restarts, plug in the k/b and allow your operating system to reload it required drivers.
Also, if you have the original driver installation disk, it would be helpful to load your k/b from the install disk.

The color on my monitor is not working. I purchased a brand new monitor it still does not work


Try fiddling with the settings on your monitor and see if it changes anything. Or maybe you got a defective monitor, I suggest bring it back whereever you purchased it and have them take a look at it so they can replace it right away if its defective.
