by Varkel / July 8, 2009 5:59 PM PDT

Hello...

a year ago i bought a acer pc with a new samsung Monitor, but i got a problem since the start. when i start the pc my screen will turn black and in the left upper corner ther appear a text that showing digital, analog, digital ,analog. that takes about 5 or 6 times than the screen turns black. the monitor is still on because my power indicater is going on/off/on/off.When i got the pc i managed it to get it on the digital mode and worked fine,I had to this for 2 weeks and then the problem disaperd. But now i got my old problem back but different now is that i cant get it on digital mode anymore, I tryd everything. used both cables, installed drivers and looked at my settings but the only way i can use it, is in analog mode but i cant play games on this mode.

Hope someone can help me Sad ...

Varkel,

Are you hooking the monitor with the 15-Pin, or the DVI?

Also, what model is the monitor?

Varkel,

Each of those inputs have a list (which can be found in the manual) of supported resolutions. Are you certain that the resolution set on the video card is supported by the cable type you're using?

Often times, some games will reset the video card's resolution settings, and the game's default video settings will be a different resolution than what the monitor is able to display. So that would be the first thing I would check.

Hello Hd-tech

okay i chekked my resolutions, when i look in my screen menu, this is shown. analog
55.8kHz 60Hz NP
1440x900
so its 1440 on my screen menu mode, than i looked in my nvidea console settings and it says its also on 1440x 900. this is the highest mode u can get from that setting. below this it says its 32Bit and 60 Hertz.

Also looked for the manual on the samsung site and i couldnt find what kind of resolution fits with this cable.

So it say's thats analog but i cant get it back to digital Sad it looks like the computer can find digital because if i plug analog cable out the computer will auto sourge (analog,digital,analog,digital 6 times) and than it says the computer couldnt find the analog cable.

hope u can help me more Happy

Varkel,

From reviewing the manual, it seems that the DVI input is for the Mac only. Now some of the updated drivers may have changed that, but I have no way of knowing. Just to be sure, you've used the updated drivers (latest) on the website?

The resolution you noted is only listed under Mac. You might try analog with one of the supported resolutions if the drivers don't fix the issue.

This shouldnt be problem because it did wel for an year on digital.
But i went back to my computer store and they saud the only thing that could be done is to change graphic card, So i went to a friend that had an grapic card for me. i build the thing in pc and its working perfect again. So i ques the 8600 Gt Nvidea grapic card has a fault in it from the beginning. What do you think should i give a call or an email to nvidea to inform the about this card becuzz it isnt working normally. Silly

well thanks for ur help
Great Job ^^

See ya

Hello!

I have the same problem as Varkel. When I plug my Samsung 2232BW monitorinto my Samsung NC10 netbook, the digital analog flashes then the screen goes black. I had used the monitor with my netbook for a few months before this problem started. I don't know much about computers but I tried to adjust the settings on my computer to fix the problem and when I change the screen resolution, the samsung monitor flashes so I don't think it is an issue with the cable or my computer. Please help!

shimmer3,

The screen could be flashing as a result of the video card trying to make a connection with the monitor.

My initial assumption would be that is a video card settings issue, and I would definitely recommend contacting the Samsung customer service center for troubleshooting assistance. Unfortunately the interaction required to troubleshoot this would almost be prohibitive, since it would require going into various menus and getting instant feedback to figure out the next steps. If you like to trying contact the Samsung customer service center in the US, you can reach them at 800-SAMSUNG.

Running a T220 Syncmaster that was fine for years then poof, analog digital analog digital. I've eliminated the rgb cable but don't have a dvi handy. I resolved the issue by blowing the dust off my graphics card after hard powering down. So the solution for me was either hard powering down or the dusting.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
