Screen probelm I just received my Samsung monitor as a present last week and it has been working great. This morning I woke up and turned on my pc to find a bright green line going down the left hand side of my screen. It is a few pixals wide.
What can I do to fix this? Or do I need a new monitor?

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"
If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer
Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.
I have seen this when using HDMI cables from the computer side.. The TV has a resolution that is not always full screen with TV shows. There is a setting that allows you to "zoom". My TV has 4 settings: normal, stretch and crop, stretch left and right, stretch and pinch (shrug).
3-3 is either video card or memory related. Try to reseat your video card and see if that helps. If nothing still, try to reseat the RAM. If that doesn't work, try another video card. If that doesn't work, try different memory. If all that doesn't work, let me know and I will see what else I can do to help you out. But from my experience, it is almost always RAM related.
TV worked FINE for the past 2 yrs---this morning we woke up and the screen is totally BLACK! No sound..nothing. REmote doesn't do anything to the TV. Red light says ON unless we unplug it. Remote won't turn off the TV.
Any advise? Picture tube??
Worked great w/out any problems until we woke up today!
