Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 940BE 19" LCD Monitor ?

Oblong pictures I have just bought this monitor. Photo images are stretched across the horizontal axis making every one look like they have gained 20 lbs. I am using a dellPC with XP Home edition. I have reset the resolution and switched to larger founts which has helped the text resolution dramatically but not the pictures.


Answers :

The issue here is that you have a low resolution picture and a high resolution display. Windows is "stretching" the smaller, low resolution picture so that it will fit across the larger area, thus distorting it.\015\012\015\012Right click on the desktop and select properties. Go to the Desktop tab. There should be an item there for position. Is it set to Stretch? If it is, then this is causing the problem. Set it to center, and it should appear fine.\015\012\015\012If you want to keep this from happening:\015\012\015\0121) User higher resolution pictures.\015\0122) Turn down the resolution on your screen (this can be done from the Settings tab of display properties).

Computer Screen My computer screen keeps switching to a much larger picture with much less color (and incorrect colors). Is this a problem handled by replacing with a new computer screen, or does it sounds like a virus or similar problem with the actual computer? It is a problem that used to occur rather infrequently, and a reset of the computer would fix the screen. Now the screen will not reset even with a shut down and restart of the computer.

My Asus PG221 monitor suffers from frequent issues in which brightly coloured pixels randomly appear on the screen, then the screen will go black for a few seconds. Sometimes 'DVI - no signal' will appear, and usually the picture comes back. However, the issues do not cease. Seemingly the only way of temporarily stopping them is leaving the monitor overnight then switching it on again, after which I get about 30 minutes usage before the problems begin again. The problems occur particularly when
