Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I'm currently installing my new SyncMaster 2280HD Monitor to be used for now just as a monitor. When I turned on the computer onscreen all I get are two floating boxes that say AV in the upper left corner and Check signal cable in the middle. How do I proceed to make it become a monitor?

It sounds like there is a connection issue between the computer and monitor. Make sure the cable connecting the computer and monitor is securely fastened on both ends. If you verify that it is and the problem persists, try using a different cable.

There are no drivers on the Samsung site that I could find.

That said, you don't need drivers for your monitor. If your monitor isn't displaying anything with your new computer, try turning your computer completely off, make sure your monitor is turned on and plugged in to the computer, then turning the computer back on. Windows should automatically detect what resolutions the monitor supports and your monitor should start working.

The problem is not the LCD monitor; the problem is that the current device-driver for your computer's video-card is a "generic" ("low-resolution") device-driver.

Open "Device Manager".
Expand the "Display Adapter" section.
Double-click the video-card.
Click "update driver" and let Windows access the Internet, to search for a better driver.

REset the screen resolution. I suggest getting the drivers directly from Samsung and then follow thier exact install directions, not plug and play.

Tried installing samsung syncmaster monitor and get and error message check signal cable dialgoue and can't do anything, previous monitor works fine


Does the new monitor work correctly when installed to some other computer (notebook or desktop) ? If it, you have a "dud" that should be replaced, under warranty.

Try changing the data-cable between the monitor and your computer.

Do I need a disc to install our samsung syncmaster 205 BW monitor? If so, where do I get it?


Is this a new monitor, and there is no disc with it?
If you are running XP, Vista, Windows 7 etc. than the monitor is plug and play. Just turn the computer off, plug in the monitor, turn on the computer, and you should be good to go.

Get a new LCD monitor, and sell the bad one on ebay. LCD monitors are very cheap now.

Here are some places to buy monitors, I never buy from a retail store:
http://www.geeks.com/products.asp?cat=MON

http://www.tigerdirect.com/

http://www.newegg.com/

Currently Geeks.com has $1.99 shipping on several items.

Type this search string into ebay to help find what bad LCD monitors are selling for, (broke*, bad, as is, as-is, part*, fix, repair, damage*) lcd monitor*
