Sounds as if something within the monitor is overheating or a component (maybe a capacitor) is going bad. Either way, if it is under warranty, I believe Samsung has a 3yr warranty, it should be repaired by a professional.

Reload the software and test. Beyond that, try it on another PC if possible. Then check for any updates that have been installed from windows regarding video or players. If there, remove and reboot. hope this helps
it sounds like your power supply went bad as for the cost of one they are about $35 and you could do it your self its easy but if not your prolly lookin at another $20 for someone to put it in please rate me thanks
I thought my problem was originally monitor related. However since I posted, the picture disappeared altogether, and my PC wouldn't even start to bootup. Fearing my mobo may have died I removed the hardware components, cleaned then re-assembled them. After all that, it turned out that my graphics card has a tendency to become slightly unseated. Once I was aware of this problem booting up resumed normally. It seems that the problem of the fading monitor picture seems to still occur, but soon after I use the machine after 'hibernation' state, and even then it doesn't always occur if I do use hibernation. I haven't used hibernation for a little while and so far the problem has not returned
when starting windows press f8 key before the windows logo shows up > go to safe mode > click start>control panel> display>adapter>list all modes> choose 800x600 x 16 colours > apply > close > reboot to normal xp. OR When f8 key pressed > choose VGA mode. If this does not work then change the VGA Cable (borrow from someone if its TFT to test)
It sounds like a driver issue, but more likely the monitor driver, not the video card, since the other monitor works properly. If you go into the video properties, check the monitor settings. You should be able to switch it to a generic monitor. You also need to make sure that you have the correct monitor refresh frequency set. If you have a mis-match, the video card could send signals at a rate the monitor can;t handle, which is why it won't "wake" even after a reboot and might need to be unplugeed to get it to come back on.
please connect your laptop to external monitor. if it works with external monitor, then the problem is with your laptop monitor driver.if that is the case, then re-install laptop monitor drivers. if it doesn't work even with the external monitor, then re-install graphic card drivers.
Is there anything going on in Control Panel, Power Settings? Such as an auto off? Sometimes getting the monitor to come back on after it goes to "sleep" can be tricky. Usually a keyboard stroke works better than mouse movement. It almost sounds like a hardware problem and I would contact the manufacturer and see if it's still under warranty. I'm assuming the PC it is connected to isn't going off?
