I recently bought a Samsung SyncMaster 2494HM LCD monitor. Out of the box, I plugged it into my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop using the VGA cable, and things worked perfectly. About a week later, it stopped working.
I brought it into Samsung after service to try to get it fixed, but when they plugged it into one of their computers, it worked without a problem. While I was there, I hooked it up to my laptop to show them the problem, and after 10 minutes or so of playing with it, they were unable to get it to work. However, I am in South Korea, and the laptop language is English, so they may have had some trouble with that.
My OS is Windows 7 32 bit. I have tried all sorts of options in the screen resolution settings, but cant get it to show. The screen looks like something is happening (it flickers a tiny bit), but it never shows anything. Also, on occasion when I first plug the monitor into the laptop I can see the desktop for a few seconds.
This is very frustrsting since it did work for a while, but now I get nothing. The monitor is just taking up space. I'd be grateful for any help.
