Samsung 28'' U28E590D 4k monitor no settings???

Q: Samsung 28'' U28E590D 4k monitor no settings???

Whenever I try to adjust the settings for this monitor, I only have the option to change brightness. Contrast, samsung magic bright, colour etc. are all greyed out or say unavailable. Absolutely 0 customization available other than brightness.

But when I go to a YouTube video to check it out, the guy just turns it on and has full access to all of the colour features available.

I am using DisplayPort to connect the monitor, though I have also tried HDMI just for testing purposes and encountered the same issue.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi,
Would be grateful if anyone can help with the following problem. I have a Samsung U28E590D 4K monitor and at 2048 x 1152 it will only run at 30hz under Windows 7 (both DP and HDMI) on the E5540. I have installed the latest Dell Intel 4400 drivers(will not allow non dell) and the latest monitor driver. Both the Windows resolution form and the Intel control panel only provide 29 and 30 hz options.
I know the video card should be able to drive this as it just works on another LG 34UC98W monitor at a higher res of 3440 x 1440 at 50hz.
In the Intel control panel -> advanced IT says the monitor does not support advanced settings.
So by running CustomModeApp, it shows nothing in the dropdown for the monitor when the U28E590D is connected as I was hoping I could enter the paramters for 2048 x 1152 @60 hz here.
Any pointers would be appreciated!

A:Dell Latitude E5440 and 50hz on Samsung U28E590D 2048 x 1152 (Intel 4400) Win 7

Apologies, should have read "will only allow *from* dell" I.e I cannot download generic Intel 4400 drivers.

Hello, i have a Samsung Laptop with Windows 7 loaded and there is some software provided by Samsung, one of these "Easy Settings"
 
I have noticed that the setting for Express Cache Mode and Battery life Extender (and i'm sure a few others have changed) keep randomly switching to OFF when I have set them to be ON.
 
Has anyone had any experience of this software or have any idea why it could be doing this? I was thinking it could it be a conflict with some Winodws settings?
 
Any help would be great, cheers.

Hi.

I recently got a monitor from one of my friends saying that it was broken. Its a Dell 19in LCD. I have my main monitor a 22in Samsung wide screen So i just plugged it into the second DVI slot on my graphics Card. When i went into the display config i set up dual monitors just to see if it was working. The dell monitor would blink up then quit on me.

When i was messing with the Display settings I made the Dell. Not my Samsung the Default Monitor. I unpluged the broken Dell and restarted. Now my computer regognizes the Samsung as the second monitor and it just shuts it off and recognizes nothing as the main.

I managed to get it into safe mode and it recognized the samsung but every time i try go back to Normal Start the screen is blank.

How can i get it to recognize the Samsung as my main?

I just connected my new Samsung Syncmaster 2333HD TV/Monitor to my desktop computer for use as a monitor. After powering up the unit I was prompted to scan for available television channels. As I noted, however, I want to use it as a monitor instead of a TV. Since it's already hooked up to my computer, I figure it should be a relatively easy setup process, but so far I haven't been able to figure it out. I've already set up the language, time zone, DST, etc., but all I have onscreen now is a box which reads HDMI in the upper left-hand corner, and a box which reads NO SIGNAL in the center. What should I do next?

I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who can tell me how to get the unit recognized as a computer monitor. Thank you very much.

Hi, everyone.I have a SAMSUNG NP300E4A-B2BDR laptop currently running Windows 8 Pro RTM x64.The issue is that I can't run the Easy Settings application (which enables "Fn" key functions in order to adjust brightness, volume, set touchpad and wi-fi on/off etc).I can install successfully the application, but nothing happens when I attempt to run it (either by double clicking the shortcut in desktop or by pressing Fn + F1,keys which worked fine in Windows 7).The application simply does not start, and I can't use the shortcuts either (for example, Fn + F2/F3 should decrease/increase brightness respectively, but simply nothing happens).

I checked SAMSUNG PC Windows 8 Upgrade and my laptop is listed as having drivers and softwares available for Windows 8.The executable name is "sSettings.exe, which is located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Samsung\Settings".

Does anyone know a solution to run Easy Settings in Windows 8?Thanks.

Info:

OS: Windows 8 Pro x64 RTM
Visual C++ redistributables: 2005/2008/2010 x86 SP1/x64 SP1

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to run Samsung Easy Settings (the app which controls Fn key funcions, such as brightness and volume adjustment in laptops) under Windows 8 (Pro x64)?I created a similar thread in last november, but the issue is another one now.

I have a Series 3 notebook and in the drivers/software section in Samsung Support page for my laptop (NP300E4A-BD2BR), however there's no Easy Settings (ES) specific software package for Windows 8, only Windows 7 (both x86 and x64). I can't install Windows 7 ES under 8 because the OS refuses to do so, due to incompatibility.There's an application released by Samsung called "SW Update", which is a driver manager and finder, however, there is still no sight of Easy Settings available for download.

Due to lack of ES support in Windows 8, I had to revert back to Windows 7 (which I'm running now) , and still can't use Windows 8 because of this.So, do you know if there's another version of Easy Settings which I can install under Window 8?Thanks in advance.

A:Windows 8 and Samsung Easy Settings?

Hi Ubuntu2013

As it happens I have a Samsung NP300E5C. I don't know how similar it is, but the model numbers look similar - in my case it was bought as a Windows 7 laptop, not too long ago.

I used the SW Update download from the Samsung website which you mention, and went to "All Software" within that tool, where there's a list of various drivers and tools you can install.

One of the things in SW Update is called "Settings" (perhaps they've renamed Easy Settings), and I think this is the one that reactivated all my Fn-key options. Anyhow these keys all work for me again, and this was on a Clean Install of Windows (wiping the partition etc.) so it didn't keep anything from Windows 7.

Do you have Settings within SW Update on your PC?

Hope this helps!

Hello all,
My system specs are the following: Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit UEFI Bios Phoenix BIOS version and drivers are updated, also confirmed by Slimdrivers.

Windows works like a speedster the only problem is the inaccessibility of BIOS, for example i want to enable the virtualization VT-X to install Oracle VM and i can't go BIOS to edit virtualization.
Problems: UEFI BIOS firmware settings boot dialog is inaccessible.Not working suggested fixes:

i) hotkeys Esc, F2, F4, F8 and F10 don't log in BIOS. Although safe mode, debug logging, etc are available. Disabling Fast Bios in the control panel > power management dialog doesn't do anything.ii) automatic repair seems to give an error, after the account is specified in the repair boot dialog it gives error.iii) recovery > Advanced options > UEFI Firmware Settings Boot is not Visible.iv) EasyUEFI free only works with Windows 10 Home, not Enterprise (it would resolve the issue appropriately with the boot into UEFI option) Sources:

Hi,
Our users are experiencing an issue in which the APN settings on their Samsung Slates appear to revert to their default values. For example, the APN is supposed to be Telstra.Corp, using an LDAP username and password to connect to our network. This connection is reset by something to Telstra.internet. They're then able to access the internet, but internal resources are obviously not available. Is this a known issue with Windows 8? Is there some way to automatically assign the correct settings?

Hello Guys,

I'm looking for a favour from fellow owners of a Samsung 27inch Monitor S27B970DS/EN to prove a blank flashing screen is a fault and not normal behaviour which I am being told by the Samsung repair centre Viewtek.

My monitor has been in for repair 3 times, the fault is if the monitor is switched on from cold and a short video clip from my security camera is played in either Windows Media Player or Gom player the screen will flash to a blank black screen for 0.5-1 second then the picture will return. If I put 10 short video clips in to a Gom Player play list the screen flash will occur every time I skip to the next video in the play list by pressing the page down key or when the video ends and moves on to the next clip. The flash will also occur when some programs scan for hardware changes or software updates like Samsungs Magician program and NVIDIA's Geforce Experience program.

There are 2 video clips I have uploaded to You Tube, the first was taken yesterday after the 3rd repair with the fault worse than ever:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCkd547pxYs
The Second is of the fault before the first repair with a full description and with me letting the monitor sleep etc :- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A641f...ature=youtu.be

I've got this 19" Samsung LCD monitor that was sent to me to be repaired. The initial problem with it was that it made a hissing noise, then stopped working. Right away I knew it was the capacitors, so I fixed them. But now the backlight doesn't come on. Shows images on the screen, but no light to illuminate them. I'm pretty sure that it's not the screen since I've tried two screens in it already. Could be something on the board, but off hand I can't think of what it could be, everything looks fine. Anyway if anyone could help shine some light on this problem, I would really appreciate it, but as of right now I'm going to see if I can figure it out.

I apologize for my newbie-ness, but I have what I think is a simple question, and I haven't had any luck finding info.

I'm going to be purchasing a HP A6554F machine with a PCI-Ex16 slot running Vista Ultimate 64 bit. What I want is this: I have a Samsung DLP HDTV that I want to use as a second monitor for the purposes of viewing video. The VGA specs from the manual are as follows:

Mode: VESA
Resolution: 1920x1200RB
Vertical Hz: 59.885
Horizontal Hz: 74.556
Vertical polarity: P
Horizontal polarity: N

I have a dinky 17" LCD (VGA only) that I want to continue using as a normal PC monitor; it's 1280x1024. I am not a gamer, there will be no games played on this machine (other than Minesweeper or Solitaire ). I just want to do my browing, Excel, Visual Studio etc. on my 17" and watch video on the Samsung. Doing both at the same time would be great, though I could probably live with single tasking if I had to.

So, is this something a "normal" dual monitor capable card can do with Vista? Again, I apologize for this being such a basic question, but my knowledge in this area is very weak.

Thanks in advance,

Brad

A:Samsung DLP via VGA as second monitor?

Hi Brad and welcome to the forums

You should first check to see whether or not your graphics card is capable of supporting this monitor at its native resolution. If it does, there should be no problem in connecting this to your PC providing you have a suitable cable and, if necessary, an adapter. Make sure that your system is configured to use your 17" LCD as the primary display (check the graphics card manual for details on which is the primary port on the card). Set both ports to output data to their relative monitors at the native resolution for the monitor attached to that port. The colour depth can be set to 32-bit for both monitors and, since you are using solid-state (as opposed to CRT) monitors, you can leave the vertical refresh rate at 60Hz.

Hello,
I am interested in purchasing a new LCD display (used primarily for gaming). I looked up "The Beast" in the pc powerplay magazine, and found they recommended the monitor: Samsung 930BF 19" 4ms LCD.
http://www.samsung.com/Products/Monitor/LCD_Digital/LS19BIDKBVXAA.asp

I went to the store asking for the monitor, and the sale attendant said it was good, but also suggested this monitor: Sony SDMHS95PS 19" 12ms LCD. http://www.pcshopper.com.au/product.php?productid=45273&cat=429&page=1

I was wondering, since I am using the monitor primarily for gaming, which monitor would be better? The Sony monitor has a glossy finish, meaning the image it produces is sharper than the Samsung. However, the Sony has a lower response time of 12ms when compared to Samsung?s 4ms.

Would you notice much ghosting with the Sony?s 12ms response time? Is it justifiable to have a slower response time, but a crisper image? Any advice would be most appreciated.

Cheers,

Maqqie

EDIT: I actually heard that Sony's response time is 8ms rather than 12ms. This is because Sony time their response time in REAL TIME, where'as Samsung do it internally in the pc itself. (In otherwords, if Sony were to time their monitors in the pc itself, their response time would be 8ms not 12ms).

Always Sony, nevermind the response time, you won't tell the difference beetwen 12ms and 8ms.

I've had an ongoing problem with this for some time now. You can see here that my Device Manager tells me that I'm missing a video controller, and also in that post is my inability to watch full screen videos online. Here, I talk about the problems I've had with my display driver crashing.

Now, yesterday I downloaded Photoshop, and as it opened, a window popped up saying that my "monitor Profile" is defective and needs to be calibrated (See first attachment). If I choose to Ignore Profile, I can use Photoshop as usual, but everything I export has an irremovable yellow tinge. If I choose to Use Anyway, there is no white in Photoshop's color pallet, only the same yellowish color.

This got me thinking for the first time that my monitor was the cause of my problems, so I searched online for Samsung 2243swx drivers. On their webpage, they had up for download only one driver, which is for a VGA graphics card (See second attachment). I've been running a PCI graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS), and I was wondering if this could be the problem.

Would you say I ought to buy a VGA graphics card?

A:Monitor Samsung 2233SW

hi Thiagi Tupi, and welcome to sevenforums,

thank you for taking the time to fill out your system specs.

do samsung have vista drivers for your monitor? if so, try them.

also look in your nvidia control panel for fullscreen settings - i don't have an nvidia card, so i don't know the exact place to start looking.

Hi everybody,

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 2253BW - 22" monitor connected to my Gateway laptop Model T-1623. I've been using it as an external monitor (so I have dual monitors running) in this fashion for about 3 years. It's worked great. But earlier, completely randomly, the monitor went black. It's still on, my preferences says it's still connected. I can drag my mouse and browsers to the external monitor. But nothing displays.

I'm running Vista 32, service pack 2. Drivers say everything is installed and installed properly. I don't believe it...I think there is a problem with the drivers.

So luckily I had already downloaded all of them from a previous problem and have them all on a usb drive. But this time that I'm trying to re-install the drivers the dialog box that pops up, the winzip extractor, won't let me click on "overwrite files without prompting" so it makes me click yes over and over and over again for every single thing. And then it eventually makes me abort because something is damaged.

Not only that but I tried going to Gateway to download new drivers, just in case, and they changed their download site. Now they make you download drivers for the entire T-16 series instead of just the computer that you need. But guess what? My computer, T-1623, is not included. I found this out after installing it and then eveything broke and I had to do a system restore. I looked at the documentation that came with the driver download and everythin... Read more

A:Samsung Monitor Went Black

The first thing to do is to connect the monitor to another computer to see if it works there.
If it doesn't, then the monitor is probably broken
If it does, then the VGA port on your laptop may be broken. You can test this by plugging another monitor into it.

Is there anything special that you use the drivers for? In most cases the in-built Windows drivers are good enough for most folks, and it's much easier to use them than it is to track down and install custom 3rd party drivers.

Hey , I own a Samsun SyncMaster 913v, and I am missing its driver for Windows 7 but , when I check the website for download, it's only available for Windows XP, does it means I won't be able to find a suitable driver for it?
Will I have to wait?

You could try running the installer in xp compat mode, see if there is a vista driver floating around out there.

Let us know if this doesnt help

make sure the computer video resolution is set to one that is supported by the monitor.
800x600 and 1024x768 are pretty common ones to use.

In reading the specs on the Samsung LCD Monitors, I don't see any mention that they have "anti-glare" coating. In particular I'm interested in the Samsung 912N LCD Monitor. Does this monitor have "anti-glare" coating?

I emailed the company a couple of days ago, but haven't heard anyting from them, not even the obligatory auto response.

Just hooked up a new Samsung model 997DF 19" flat screen crt monitor. The color is faded badly . Installed the Magictune software that came with it, but it doesn't seem to do much. Is this just the way things are going to be, or can I resolve the problem? Bought this thing from Circuit City over the telephone, so returning it would be a real hassle. When I change the screen resolution the icons and text are very small and hard to see, so that isn't much of an alternative. Thanks!
 

A:Samsung CRT Monitor problems

I use a Samsung 915n 19" lcd. The colors are incredible. I doubt you have a defective monitor. Have you tried the normal adjust buttons on the front face of the monitor itself?

Changing resolution does require some minor adjustments to your icons and other preferences. That can be done in start>settings>control panel>display>appearance>"advanced" button. (or right click on an empty spot on your desktop, and click "properties") From that place you can change the sizes of any one of your items.

good luck

Hello -
I would like to buy a 20" to 22" LCD Samsung Sync Master monitor, since I've had one for almost 7 years and it's been good to me.It has both a DVI port and a VGA port. I have a Sony VAIO desktop, Serv. Pack 3,Pentium 4 chip, 1.21 GBs of RAM. Almost half the hard drive is unused. Don't know where to look for the voltage. It has a lot of memory as I filed up the slots thinking the system would move faster. It only goes up to 1024 by 768 pixels. I know the new monitors go much higher. Highest color quality is 32 bit. I'm replacing a 15" CRT that came with the computer. I don't know much. Ask me if you need any more info. I researched DVI connectors but I don't know what this older computer can handle. I figured why go to DVI if the computer can't put that out to the monitor? What if I just did VGA to VGA? Under what circumstances would I need a new video card? The Sony has the original Video card. I just don't know if a 22" LCD monitor is compatible with my older computer? Can anyone please be kind enough to explain what I'm facing, and what options I have, in layman's terms? Oh, also, I think this monitor may be refurbished by the factory. The site I'd buy it from has sneaky language about that. New Egg sells the same 20"monitor for $150.00 more but it may be worth saving a little more money to get a brand new monitor.
Thanks so Much,
Dawn

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 170mp with TV tuner that I've hooked up to my Ibm thinkpad 2628 f2u laptop installed on the IBM docking station.

I have no sound thorugh the computer but I do have sound when the tv is on.

I tried everything I could think of less hooking up speaker cables and I shouldn't have to do that. Have tried to change hardware settings, bios settings nothing is working. I even hooked it up directly to the laptop away from the docking station.
 

A:samsung monitor has no sound

Maybe when you dock your computer it thinks the sound wants to go through only the dock. Thats what my computer does.

Hi all,I bought the above monitor and I can't make it work properly on Windows 10. I connect the monitor using HDMI on a Dell XPS laptop. I have installed the driver from Samsung but I can't make the image look crispy and nice. This is how my Win bar looks like.The Device Manager shows this:When I update the driver (HDMI) the Wizard shows the Generic PnP Monitor.
My Dell XPS 15 4K comes with this adapters:
After inspecting the device manager, I can see there is an error somewhere: The device events indicate that the device is not migrated.
 
Does anybody have an idea how to correctly install the driver?

Hey,

This may be software related but im unsure. Recently i got back my Samsung 206BW from the repair shop. Except now whenever i connect it to my pc it can only recognise it as a Analogue monitor, and i have to use a VGA connection to get any picture. As a result i cant run my Native resoloution of 1680x1050 ( unless i force it in rivatuner or nvidia control panel ) on the desktop or in any games and applications. It worked fine through DVI before it broke and went to the repair shop, now only vga??? Would it have anything to do with using a CRT for the time it was getting repaired?? I'm using a 8800GT with the latest Nvidia drivers and Vista.

Help appreciated!
