Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 920NW Monitor ?

I'm trying to help a handicapped friend of mine with his monitor/computer problem. He has a Samsung 920 NW monitor. The computer boots up but the monitor immediately goes black. The blue on/off button on the monitor is not blinking. I can turn the monitor off then right back on and see the screen for about 1 second when the screen goes black again. Help?


Answers :

Here's a good link to a troubleshooting guide for monitor problems that may help you to correctly diagnose the cause. Another article and other links here as well) I'd hook the monitor up to another system for starters to see if it works there...
\015\012Be sure to check the monitor cable. And if another monitor works on the same system but that one doesn't, check that the settings are all correct for that monitor, including resolution, refresh rates, etc.
\015\012This could be also the result of some kind of hardware conflict at boot, a bad graphic card or outdated driver (in which case here's a tutorial to help you update the driver), or even malware in the system, in which case I recommend you follow these protocols to scan for and remove the malware....
\015\012And sometimes monitors just wear out, particularly if they're not setup to run in optimum conditions...
\015\012Good luck!
The graphics card could be burned out.
test the computer with a different monitor
