Phillips 17 Inch Monitor Shrinks

One of my 17 inch monitors (phillips) starts up fine but within 1 minute or 2 it shrinks to about half of the width, with the sides concave. It is definitely the monitor, as i can plug it in to different computers and it acts the same. The buttons cannot reset it, neither by resetting to factory, nor by adjusting pincushion. What next?

A Single 5870 Enough For A 30 Inch Monitor ?

About to order my new rig to coincide with the release of windows 7, i got most of what i want in there already figured out:

Phenom ii x4 965 (the 955 is only 20 bucks cheaper)
Msi 790fx-gd70
4 gb ocz black edition 8-8-8-24 1600
2 640gb wd caviar black in raid 0
Sapphire radeon hd 5870
Lian li x1000
Corsair tx850w
Samsun 305t 30 inch monitor @ 2560x1600
Prolimatech megahalems

I plan on playing games at max settings crysis/crysis warhead included. I am worried that at that resolution 1 5870 will not cut it and i am already over my budget by a solid 300$ to afford the second graphic card would have to wait for the end of next november probably. If i wait till november i might as well see what the new nvidia cards look like and just buy this thing post xmas (might get a better deal!). So the way i see it i can do one of two things, buy it now or buy an xbox 360 to tide me over till january and buy the best computer i can afford then! I refuse to pay 3300$ for a computer and not bbe blown away by the performance!

Graphics Card For 19 Inch Ws Monitor

New to graphics and monitors, so chances are it will be easy to solve. I have just been give a 19'' widescreen lcd for crimbo. I am currently running onboard graphics as i don't need anything special. The highest resolution i can get is 1280 x 1024, but when in widescreen mode, it stretches everything and look rubbish. I have looked at the papers that have came with it and the read as follows:-

19'' widescreen
Max res 1440 x 900

I cant seem to find this setting in my properties, so i assume i will need a graphics card upgrade. Am i on the right lines? Or am i missing out something very simple? I would really like to have the monitor on widescreen and have the resolution so that it fills the screen without the stretching. This will maximize the monitor and my workspace.

Monitor Price Of Samsung, Lg 15.6 Inch

What is the price if samsung, lg and different other brand 15. 6 inch monitor?


Are you looking to purchase an lcd or a crt monitor? Crt monitors are really hard to find now and taking into consideration the current prices, it no longer makes sense because they are pretty much outdated and have been replaced by lcd monitors. And even if you look at lcd monitors, it won't be easy to find small monitors in the market now. A dell in1910n which is an 18. 5 inch monitor with a maximum resolution of 1366x768 pixels will cost you 6, 000 rupees according to the website under source. It's better you purchase a 20" monitor which will cost you around 6, 500 to 7, 000 rupees. Here's a small list of 20" monitors: http://www.Priceguide. In/monitor-size/20-inch/

Correct Resolution For A 19 Inch Widescreen Monitor

What screen resolution do i use for a 19 inch widescreen?

Before i had a regular sized screen i think 17 inch, and i had it on 1280x1024. I want to correctly scale it up to my new monitor, i want to try and have the same pixels to inch ratio (as close as possible) just with more pixels on my screen

Right now i have it on 1440x900 but it feels kind of weird (maybe im just not used to the widescreen expierence) edit: bassicaly id like to keep the same height, the height shrunk abuot 100 pixels and i think thats whats causing the weirdness. Btw my video card is an ati pci-express (i forget the model) and im using the dvi port thing.

Video Card For 1680x1050 And 22 Inch Monitor

After years of great gaming with an 8800gtx it finally went out and i am now stuck using a old geforce fx 5200. Since i need a new video card for my system i would like to know what is recommended. I would like to know what video card you guys recommend for a gaming res of 1680x1050. This is off topic, but i am also considering upgrading my cpu from a q6600 to a e8500 although i could swear that i got a major performance boost when i went from a 2. 4ghz core2duo i forget the model to a q6600 g0 in crysis. I would like advice on this from other gamers. Is it worth the change for game performance?

My most played games are:

Fallout 3, mass effect, and witcher enhanced.

Using 32 Inch Samsung Lcd Hdtv For A Monitor

Using the 32inch samsung lcd hdtv for a monitor? What do ya guys think? Sure an arm and a leg needs to be sacrificed for it, i certainly cant afford it, but lets just assume you could afford it. How would it fare as a monitor? Staring at this enormous screen in front of you, playing call of duty 2 on that would make me drool.

Best Sli Setup / 30 Inch Monitor / Psu Questions

I am about to buy a new computer, that includes a dell 3008wfp. My budget is 3000$ and buying that monitor leaves me with ~1700 (assuming i buy the monitor refurbished). I have a few questions regarding some of the components. Cpu: intel i7 920
Motherboard: asus p6t
Memory: ocz platinum triple-channel kit 2gb/stick pc3 10666
Hard drives: ocz apex 60gb ssd wd 640gb 7200 rpm 32mb cache
Graphics card(s): 2 bfg geforce gtx 280 ocx edition in sli
Psu: corsair 850tx 850w

Since i am running this on a 30 inch monitor, i wanted something powerful enough to support 2560x1600. Since the gtx 295 seems to be at its eol (it is not being sold anywhere) i decided to go with the gtx 280s in sli for now. First question - do you think the gtx 280s in sli are best? I am pretty partial to nvidia but it seems that 4890s in crossfire performs just as well and are cheaper. Second question - dell 3007wfp-hc or dell 3008wfp? The cheaper the better, but i do not want to risk major loss in performance for price. After reading the hardocp thread about this exact same question (listed here) i am still somewhat confused. The 3008 has more inputs and a onboard scalar. Having this scalar allows you to read a lot more resolutions regardless of what resolution may be coming in (because the scalar scales the resolution coming in)? In the case of the 3007, not having this scalar means that sending a resolution to the 3007 that it does not support will not work? This is a very important question to me, because if i were to buy the 3008, the only way it would work, is if i were to buy it refurbished, and even then i would still break 3000. Third question - am i pushing it too close with running a 850w psu with the gtx 280 sli setup?

24 Inch Glossy (not Matte) Lcd Screen Monitor

Which 20 Inch Tft Screen ?

I'm looking to get rid of my ancient 17" crt and get a nice new 20" tft for work. I've been doing i fair bit of research, i considered the option of a dual 17" setup but so far haven't seen any 17" tfts which i think are suitable. I have returned to my original plan to get one 20" screen. Here is my list:

>> Apple 20" cinema display - 699
>> Viewsonic vp201b - 648. 50
>> Iiyama prolite 551s - 643. 21
>> Lacie photon 20 blue - 627. 17

(The apple site states that cinema display can be used with pc, does anyone have any experience of this?)

Disable Second Monitor While First Monitor Is In Fullscreen Mode

Is there an automated way to disable the second attached monitor whenever the first monitor goes into full-screen mode with an ati video card (hd 4870)? I have a few games that don't like my second monitor being attached and this would be better than having to always disable my second monitor.

Every time i boot my comp, the monitor never comes on, so i have to shutdown and boot it again and it works, however, in the last few days it wont come on at all, all the monitor will say is power saving mode. Also i just noticed that the lights and fan on the graphics card arent coming on.could this be a power issue? The psu is 600w.could the pcie slot be damaged?

Monitor Turns Itself Off

I connect using a dvi connectors into my video card. Bassicaly what happens is my left monitor has zero problems its great. My 2nd one seems to turn itself off on it's own. I don't have to jiggle anything to fix this, just turn the monitor back on with the button, but this is getting very annoying. (Especially since the power button isn't easy to press, may not be able to tell by the link, but the button is behind the casing of the monitor, so you can't feel for the button you have to put your finger in the exact right spot on the case and push in. No clue who ever thought this was a good idea, i would have bought a different monitor if i knew about this before hand) i made 3 hypothesis:

1) a cable is loose (not the case, i ensured everything is connected well, and it still happens)

2) the power button is loose, and small vibrations on the desk are triggering it to go off. (Don't think this is the case because my monitor has never turned itself on)

I'm still under the manufacturer warranty, though i'm afraid to send it in because 1- i have to go that time with 1 monitor, which would be impossible for me. And 2- i hate getting refurbished stuff. Espeically when i pay money for something new. I'm trying to figure out what else i might look for that would cause my monitor to turn itself off.

Monitor Only Has 16 Colors

My roommate bought a dell latitude c640, and everything seems ok except for one major thing. The monitor only has 16 colors! And when i went to the control panel and the display option, it gave me the grand option of changing it to 16 colors? I am in the twilight zone, in an episode where the graphics look crappy and i'm being played by a young rob lowe.

No Picture On The Monitor

I have an ibm netvista 6579-pdg with nvidia tnt2 16mb graphics, 256mb ram, 866mhz pentium 3, 30gb hard disk. And when i switch my pc on, just the lights on the actual pc turn on, i get no picture on the monitor which i can confirm does in fact work. It has the two lights (power and processing light) on forever, i left it like this overnight and it was the same when i got up in the morning. The bios does not even initialize, its just a blank screen when i turn the computer on. If you have any ideas to what the problem is then please let me know.

No Monitor Signal

A month ago i put together a new computer, asus a8v delux, amd athlon64 3200+, 1gb kingston ddr400(dual channel), ati radeon x800pro(agp) with a 21" dell p1130. This worked beautifully. It worked beautifully after i packed the whole thing up and went to my parents for two weeks over christmas. It didn't work when i packed it up, and came back to my place. The computer powers up and beeps once. The monitor works on another computer. No other monitor works on this computer. I have: reseated the agp graphics card, reset the system bios. The cpu and ram both feel secure, though i have not removed and reseated them yet. The sata harddrive seems fine. I don't know what else to do, and i'm very tired, so i hope one of you has an answer.

Monitor Repair

I have a 21" crt that is starting to kick the bucket. I was wondering if it's even worth repairing. It is a great monitor and would hate to have to throw it out. It seems that after 20 or so minutes (after it warms up) that the picture starts to bend in, then break, then come back, a little after that it will just go black. I turn it off for a few minutes the picture comes back. But then it will break again? So i'm wondering if there is any thing i can do to possible bring it back to life. I've already bought a new monitor 20" lcd flat panel. But would love to be able to set these up as dual monitors?

Green Monitor

I have this vivitron monitor that has been giving me problems for years. About 4 years ago it started to flicker every now and then. Eventually the flickering got so bad it would simply turn off the picture. This all was accompanied by a lot of static discharge sound from within the monitor. One day i opened it up, cleaned off all the dust, and it seemed to work ok for awhile. Within the past year, i am still able to stop the flickering by cleaning, but now the screen has also started to turn green. At first i could fix it by giving the monitor a heavy tap, and it would revert to normal colors. Eventually that was not enough though. Now i have to open it up and tap on the curcuit board at the back of the tube. This is only a temporary solution as it reverts to green hue screen sometimes when i turn it off then back on, sometimes just out of nowhere. Is there anythinig i can do to fix this? I am an electrical engineer so i am not afraid to work on it, but i am not versed with monitors.

Maybe i changed a setting, but how on earth do i get in to reset it. Or is the card the problem and needs replacing? Any advise would be helpful and hope just being idiot. Have tried another monitor - same.connections all fine.
