Samsung Monitor cuts in and out.

I just put a new computer together and fired everything up, installed windows vista ultimate and everthing has been working for about seven days with no problems. I purchased a new monitor (Samsung 22" wide screen) and hooked it up and it has been running great until now. It boots up and then it shuts off. I hooked up the old LCD widescreen(LG) and it works fine. Hook up the Samsung and it boots and then shuts off. Could it be a faulty monitor? Any ideas before I take it bake? I also tried an old monitor VGA and it also worked fine.

Samsung Monitor cuts in and out.


Have you tried downloading the newest driver for the monitor? YOu didn't post which model it is, but if you do, I can post a link that leads directly to it, if a new driver is available.

Monititor number

The number for the monitor is Samsung 2233BW 22" If it is the drivers why would it start doing this after running for one week perfectly OK?
Thanks for your help

Similar issue

I know i had a similar issue with one of my Dell monitors. You may want to double check to see if the stand-by mode is on. When I turned it on it blinked and instantly turned black and read something about hitting any button to continue. Go through your manual, if you haven't already, and see if there is a combination of buttons that turns it off. If not, get your receipt ready, call 1800Samsung, let them know the issue you're having, and (if there is stock) you may be able to get an exchange.

Sent Back

Already talked with Samsung and they are haveing power issues and am sending the monitor back for repair or new. Pretty poor on the dealers part where I bought it. Had the monitor for 2 weeks and had it running for 1 week and they wouldn't do anything. Said they heard they were having problems with that monitor (so why would you not tell me when I was purchsing it). Oh, well will wait for the monitor to come back and in the mean time will have to resort back to the old crt. Thanks for your help.
