Screen Dimensions Of Lcd Monitors


I am looking into getting a few lcd monitors, 3 to be specific, for my computer at home. I'm sure a lot of you are wondering why in the world i would need three monitors. I currently have 2 at work at quite often wish i had three. I also want to get a large wide screen for viewing movies as my main monitor and 2 smaller on each side for support. Here's where i'm having some trouble. I'm deciding between either a 20. 1 widescreen or 22 widescreen (the 22 just came out for not much more money, but i wanna wait on some reviews before deciding). For my additional two monitors, they will be mounted by arms to each side of this widescreen monitor, but i want the height of the screens to match up. I can't seem to find many sites that show the height and width of the actual screen to compare. I'm hoping some people out there can post of some dimensions (height and width) along with the designated screen size (diagonal), also if it's widescreen. Or if someone knows a site out there with a chart of these dimensions. Hmm, maybe i should just visits fry's electronics with a tape measure. P. S. If you have a crt, please don't post, i know they lose about an inch from the screen, which will totally mess up my numbers.

Lcd Monitors Failure Causes

To date, i have got my hands in over 10 malfunction lcd monitors. The cause of deaths for all of them but one were power failure of some sort. I think the lcd company intentionally did this to make people buy new ones. Here are some of the causes:-
1. Premature aging or leaking of electrolytic capacitor: either because of the use of capacitors with lower temperature rating or, for save a buck or two, use capacitors of un-trustful brand(s). Replace the capacitors usually brings the lcd back to life. 2. Dead external power adapter: especially the ones with a strange output voltage which is not easily replaceable. Depends on how the adapter is assembled, you might need to force it open to find the real cause. 3. The most strange ones are the so called "cold soldering": in some larger lcds, i found the solder of several components on the internal power board were loosed! Ideally the power board in a lcd monitor should not have cold soldering, which i think it is a truth when it was built. However, solder may became loose if, after the soldering work of a power board were done, there are external forces applied onto certain components (e.g. The ones connect to a big heat sink which were than stressed by screw onto something else ). In such case, adjust the angle/position of the monitor may put excessive force on the soldering point and eventually break the connection between the legs of the ics and the solder. Re-attach the solder could be your best choice. 4. Unstable relay. Due to the fact that some solid state relays are highly temperature sensitive, the current a relay can output/conduct may decreases dramatically as the temperature increases. The result is intolerable blinking monitor. For emergency, try to ventilate the relay, in the long run replace it with one of the same specification is your best choice. Not recommended, but, if you know what circuit were controlled by that relay and the function of the circuit, you may be able to short circuit it and make it permanently on or remove it to make it permanently off or connect a manual switch to turn it on/off by hand. 5. I never encounter this but lcds with faulty thermal fuse(s) or blown fuse(s) were reported in this forum. Replace the fuse might be a reasonable thing to do. However, if it blown again, you might need to check other places.

Running 3 Lcd Monitors On One Pc

I am wanting to run 3 lcd monitors so that i may have multiple programs up on different screens at one time. I am considering this motherboard . Asus m4a78 plus from the 'egg' and 2 ati radeon 4650's. I am not so much interested in crossfire (which i don't think supports more than 2 monitors anyway). Can i acheive 3 monitors with this board and those 2 cards?

Both 4650's have dual dvi support.

3 Monitors, 2 Lcd 1 Laptop With Docking Station

I am setting up a triple monitor display with a dell latitude d630 hooked up to a docking station. The docking station currently has 2 monitor hookups, one digital and one analog. I have a 17" dell monitor and a 17" samsung monitor that i would like to hook up to the docking station. If i plug in both displays to the current configuration, i am going to replace my current laptop monitor with one of the 17" monitors, therefore giving me a dual monitor display. I plan to use a iogear usb external video card to connect one monitor to the laptop docking station, the other monitor will connect directly to the docking station. I have heard that hooking up 2 monitors this way can blow up the computer. Is there a driver i need to install before setting this up? Or am i wasting my time with this thought because i cannot install a triple monitor video card.

Dell Dimensions 3100 Drivers

Well, most people say to fix this you need to reinstall the drivers. I finally found the disk!

Dell U2410 Monitor Dimensions

I was looking at the dell u2410 24" monitor and the dell 3008wfp 30" monitor. The dimensions listed on dell's website site for each monitor are:

U2410 - 19. 40" height x 24. 03" width
3008wfp - 18. 98" height x 27. 43" width

My question is: why is the 30" monitor shorter than the 24" monitor? They are both 16:10 aspect ratio, so that isn't the difference. I assume these dimensions don't include the stands. However, maybe that is the reason for the seeming error. In that case, my question is: what are the dimensions of the monitors themselves, not counting the stands?

Using Different Lcd Screen For Laptop

Will a laptop not work if its connected to a different lcd? This is pure curiosity. I know that the lcd might not fit, but could you theoretically change the lcd screens of two laptops or do they have different little connectors. Or even if they fit, would they not work? I've always wondered this since i've changed my laptop's screen.

Repairing Laptop Lcd Screen

Have a friend who just purchased an hp pavilion ze5000 laptop but the screen has a "white" screen, the laptop shows fine when connected to any other monitors. I am thinking that this might be a great opportunity for me to get a multimeter and learn how to use it and gain some experience/knowledge in repair but i don't wish to mess up anything in trying or misdiagnose something and have my friend purchase the wrong parts. I already have some great documentation for this but don't wish to have only that documentation to work from so i was wondering if there is anyone here experienced in laptop lcd screen repair who can guide me through the process please or if i can ask specific questions concerning the repair attempt to get some help?

Usefulness Of Logitech G19 Lcd Screen

I have 4 gaming keyboards i like and i am trying to make a final decision. I am wondering about the actual real life usefulness of the logitech g19 keyboard. Does it really help in games?

Do you have to update the keyboard software to include future games as they are released or does it just figure something out automatically?

Does it have a usefulness outside of gaming?

For all you g19 owners, how often does this improve productivity?

Does it have a usefulness in other applications such as photo and/or video editing?

I've read and watched reviews and they don't go much into the lcd screen. Maybe cause there's not much to show, i don't know. Let me know what you all think about the lcd screen. I need to start thinking with higher standards to try and eliminate these keyboards to 1.

Make Lcd Computer Monitor Into A Tv Screen

I am wondering how i can make my lcd computer monitor into a t. V. Screen? I am looking at a few monitors. One has hdmi and one just has dvi and vga. I have a dishnetwork box without hdmi so i am using component. I was wondering if all i would need to do is get a hdmi to component cord and plug it in? Or do i have to mess with the setting or other things? Also i heard you can get hd channels over the air with a hd antenna. Is that true? And how would it look on my monitor if it can support 1080p?

Lcd Flickers When Moving Laptop Or Screen Around

My lcd flickers on my toshiba laptop when i move the screen. I went to best buy and they told me that it was nothing to worry about but it is bothersome. And i have already got the lcd replaced once. It normally works fine until i start moving the laptop or the screen around. But if i do the screen normally flickers black and goes back to normal once i stop moving it.

Fix Lcd Screen On A Digital Camera

How do you fix lcd screen on a digital camera? Answer:- replacing a cameras lcd is very easy to do. You can usually buy the lcd cheap on auction sites. It might be better to purchase a broken camera with an intact screen. Make sure you get the same model. Take apart the camera and simply pull the connectors out from the end that is attached to the camera and push the connectors back in (might take some force) with the new screen. Although i have had no experience in this exact area, i would hazard a guess that the expense of replacing the lcd panel would outweigh the cost of a new camera of equivalent capability. Nonetheless, the camera, if it has an optical viewfinder is still capable of providing great pictures. You do not need an lcd viewfinder. If you doubt the picture came out, then snap another. The world didn't have lcd panels before and they certainly don't need them now. See the related link below for examples on how to replace a digital camera's lcd screen.

Small, Portable, Battery Powered Lcd Screen

I'm building a halloween costume that i want to have a small lcd screen be a part of it. Here's what i need:

- A small screen, maybe 4x6in or so?

- No thicker than 3 inches deep. - It will display a picture that i will design and upload to it. - Needs to run on battery power. Disposable batteries would be best since i could replace on the fly as needed. Need it to be on for about about 5-6 hours. -Nothing too heavy

Any ideas? I've been eying digital photo frames but i cant really find any battery powered ones that'll last longer than a few minutes and require a wall recharge to keep going.

Remove Dry Water Mark From Lcd Screen

Dell Lcd Monitor With Black Screen Problem

19" dell lcd monitor with black screen - what is the electronic cause of this monitor problem?

Answer:- usually, it's the backlight, which can be confirmed by shining a torchlight into the darkened dell monitor screen. You might see a dim silhouette of the desktop area if the computer has booted up. Replacing the backlight should solve the problem. The other reason (electronics) could be dry joints on the monitor's inverter board. This can be the case if your dell monitor has a bright & blank screen. Dry joints cause voltage drops, which can result in a black screen.

Asus Lcd Monitor Displaying Grey Screen

Last night my little sister had her friend over, and while i was asleep apparently her friend was using my computer. All i know is she had a webcam hooked up to it. But today when i go to use it, the monitor was displaying a grey screen, and it was totally unresponsive. I couldn't even hard reset. To turn it off i had to flip the switch on my psu. When i rebooted it still showed the gray screen but after a while, like 10 times longer than normal, it finally loaded and displayed properly. I couldn't figure it out, so for the time being, i left it alone. I went back to look at it a few minutes ago. It had been maybe 4 hours. And it responded this time when i moved the mouse, but the screen was grey again. I rebooted (button finally worked again) and still grey screen.

Computer Displays Post Screen Then Went To Black Screen

My computer has been running sluggish for about two days now. Was searching the web the other day and computer just came to a halt and froze. So i rebooted the computer and then it wouldn't start up. It displays the post screen but after that it went to a black screen with a white bar at the bottom of the screen. Looked like a progress bar. Rebooted again but same thing. Popped in the os disc and tried a check desk and fdisk and it came up with some errors. Got to stage 4 of 5 on them and then stopped at 50% for hours. So today i started it up again and it finally booted to the windows logo and then finally to desktop. Took around 30mins to do so. Hard drive light indicator is always on for the most part and takes forever to load applications. Okay, i guess my question is this about to be a hard drive failure? Never had one so clueless of what it is but would think it would have something to do with the hard drive. Also before it froze the other day, applications started being really slow. For example it took 10mins just for the save file dialog box to pop up to save a file.

If Disconnect Laptop Screen, Will External Screen Still Work ?

If i disconnect my laptop's screen, will an external screen still work? I have an acer aspire5315 laptop. What i am doing is i am putting it into a custom case that will not fit the built-on screen. The laptop does have a vga output (so i can connect it to another monitor, or hdtv. ) So, if i disconnect the laptop screen completely from the motherboard, will an external one connected via vga still work?

Lcd - No Signal

Asus maximus mb. Build less than a year old, this is a backup computer so has not been on a lot. Installed a few programs the other day, next time i turned the computer on the monitor said "no signal" i have tried a second cable, reinserted the video card and ram, changed pci power connector to the card. It is not a wrong input selection on the lcd either. Guess i will try the lcd, which is a few years older, on a second computer. The ocz psu just went on this and got that replaced. Wondering if this build is a lemon? I don't think there is anyway that this can be software or driver related ?

Can A Laptop Lcd Used On Pc ?

I have been going over this in my mind for a while searching for a cheap way to make a diy projector. I have got myself a overhead projector but need a lcd to put on top to project the image, but problem is i don't wanna buy a desktop tft panel to take apart. Instead i have seen on ebay, quite alot of laptop lcd panels taken out of laptops. Is there anyway i could use those lcd's and wire up a those power boards and a vga controller board and use it as normal desktop panel so i can put it on my ohp and plug the lcd into my pc?

Are there any really deep techniques out there who can tell me if this is possible and how to go about it.

Lcd Monitor Or Tv

Which one would provide a higher quality picture and overall performance, a lets say 24" wide screen lcd monitor with a tv tuner, or the same size lcd tv, high def most likely, and no tv tuner. The monitors tend to be more expensive, is that because they provide over all better resolution, if not, then which is better? This is because i was looking on either buying a tv tuner and nice monitor or a tv and hooking up my pc to it and want to know which one would be better.

Bad Pixel On Lcd

On my new samsung widescreen monitor that i was so hyped about. I just noticed that there is a dead pixel on my screen towards the bottom. Since i just took it out of the box today i decided i should take use of the 3 year warranty. So i went online and i fished around to figure out how to do so. Samsungs policy is that on a 19 inch widescreen monitor you need to have 10 or more bad pixels to apply for a monitor replacement under the warranty. Im personally not happy with this, it sounds strange to say this but, is there a way to easily kill more pixels? (Or revive my one dead one, as far as i know that is not possible), according to google i have a "stuck" pixel and not a dead pixel (it shows up green, not black).
