Monitor Samsung 170N Blinking
Posted on 2004-10-06
I have a problem with a monitor I read a few posts, but I think those users were dealing with PC's, I have a laptop, so am not sure how I can get inside and check various components.
I have an IBM X22 laptop running Win XP.
The problem is with the Samsung 170N Monitor.
The monitor shuts off then if we hit F7 it will come back up. It will do this interminitly throughout the day.
I have tried the following:
Changing the power management settings on the laptop to turn off monitor never.
Made sure display settings were on 1024x768. Also happened on the other settings.
Updated ATI Radeon display drivers
Updated Samsung drivers
I am not sure what else to do. It is a laptop so I am unsure how to pull out the video card, and I really don't have any others to try.
My next step would be to switch monitors. Any other suggestions?
