I recently purchased an LCD monitor which I have running on 1680 x 1050, http://www.samsung.com/ph/consumer/detail/...d=LS22TWHSUV/XT

and I have set it up with another monitor which is 1024 x 768 - just from my old compaq pc

I have set it up as dual monitors, using an ATI Radeon HD 3400 graphics card

but my problem is that whenever I hit on a dark site the screen on the samsung monitor goes dark.. I dont mean only the main site either...

basically it fades out so everything goes dark, I can still see the site but it is annoying.

would anyone have any idea what this could be ?... thank you

does the monitor have any enery saving options? and is the power cord plugged in all the way? it could be loss of power, though Id venture to say its the screen. is it still under warranty?
