Having problems with your Samsung 206BW Monitor ?

My monitor is switching on and off what is wrong with it ?


Answers :

Hi, it might have a push button problem or diode inside the monitor.. that's a basic solution...

regards
The button problem is very less likely to happen. This sounds more like a graphics driver problem. Did you update the graphics driver recently? You may have installed a wrong driver for your card. It's also possible that some files needed for the graphics driver to work, are missing or corrupted.

Another problem could be that the monitor refresh rate was set to a value that your monitor can't support. Or, the video card is failing. It's also possible that the monitor is failing.

Try connecting the monitor to a friend's computer to check whether it works on the other computer. You can also connect your friend's monitor to check if your computer, OS and the video card are working. If the other monitor also flickers or switches on and off, reboot the computer and boot Windows in Safe Mode by pressing the F5 function key. If it boots into the safemode without flickering or switching on/off, then surely it's the video drivers.

You can download this driver scanning tool from here: http://xpdrivers.com/index.cfm or directly from this link: http://xpdrivers.com/download/download.cfm

After downloading, install and run it. It will inform you and let you update the drivers automatically.

Hope that helps,

Dead Monitor Hi, I bought my parents an HP computer for Christmas and now, only 7 months later, the monitor stopped working. w1907 monitor. I've read some comments on here but don't understand what the solutions are saying. I don't know anything about inverters etc. Can a monitor be fixed or replaced since it's only 7 months old? I think that's an extremely short lifespan for a monitor, especially since it's used only a few times a week for short times. Thank you the monitor is dead
