Need a Flat panel monitor question answered

If this isn't the right newsgroup to ask a question about a Samsung 930b
Flat Panel Monitor, can someone steer me to the right place please?
If this is the right place, is there someone here who can possibly answer a
question for me if I post it? I didn't want to take up your time unless I
had the right place to post. :-)
Thanks much
Dudley

The right place is a Samsung forum. Since you didn't
actually give any info. you wasted the space.

Nice, Jim.

Way to snub a guy who prefaced his post with
an admitted non-knowledge of whether or not it
belonged here.

Don't you think your reply could have simply been:

"The right place is a Samsung forum."

without the mean-spirited editorializing?

------------------------------------------------

to the original poster:

If the problem you are having is related to how
XP is interacting with your Samsung, fire away.

If it relates specifically to the panel itself (hardware),
then you might have better luck with your issue if
you contact Samsung support, but my past experience
with them has caused me to form the opinion that I get
more helpful information from a sack full of axe handles.

Also might try posting in:

microsoft.public.windowsxp.video

if you actually are running XP.

He should have asked his question, he might have gotten an
answer if it was something to do with refresh rates,
resolution or interface. One or two sentences with an
actual question would have been LESS of a waste of time.

I'm sorry. You're wrong. The question is complicated enough that writing it
out on the wrong forum would have been a REAL waste of time....MINE!
I'm also sorry you chose to post such a mean spirited reply. I checked
Samsung before posting here and as far as I can determine, they have no
forum. I might have missed it, but I didn't see one.

Thank you very much. You have been very helpful.
I've been in contact with Samsung's support already and have a transaction
number for tomorrow morning. Reason I posted here was in hope of finding
someone using a 930b or something close to it in digital source mode.
As you have indicated, I also found Samsung a bit "shaky" with a definite
answer to my question.
I need to find out if what I'm getting is normal or an issue that needs a
return and another monitor.
It's a brand new 930b and I'm using it with a brand new EVGA 6800GT 256 GPU
which has absolutely no issues.
I think what has happened is that I have a "newer" model that has outpaced
the installation manual as far as the sourcing setup is concerned. The
manual calls for a button select that blackens the OBS and shows an
alternating selection dialog for analog and digital. It says to use the up
and down arrow keys to select one or the other. Simple enough :-)
What happens is that when I hit the select button, the screen goes black all
right, but the alternating selection dialog for analog/digital seems to go
into automatic and select digital immediately without my intervention with
the arrow keys.
I'm assuming that Samsung has upgraded the selection to now be automatic.
The monitor seems perfect except for one issue.
What happens is that when I put the computer on standby, or turn the
computer off at night, after the monitor goes black, I get a small window in
the upper left corner of the black screen that shows an alternating source
dialog between analog and digital. This behavior continues through several
cycles and then stops on digital.
Again, I'm assuming this is normal, but I need to know absolutely if it is
or isn't, and Samsung so far hasn't been able to tell me.
Anyway, that's my tale of woe for the day if by any chance you have an
answer.
And thanks for taking the time.

I'm not "nasty" just blunt. You almost explained your
problem.
Now I'm going to take a SWAG (in my pilot/instructor days I
taught four steps to make decisions, KISS, WAG, SWAG and
PDC)

Your graphics card is connected to your monitor using a DVI
connector so digital is the default. When you shut it down
the monitor searches for an analog signal, when it doesn't
detect an analog signal it reverts to the default digital.
You could have asked the question and I could have guessed
the answer the first time. I may even take the time to
research the answer by looking up info on the graphics card
and monitor.

6 degrees of right rudder trim to you too.

Need a Flat panel monitor question answered
