While trying to improved on the quality of my desktop's monitor (Samsung Syncmaster 193p), I must have screwed up the driver, or something, because now the screen is blank when I rebooted. The only thing that shows on the screen were the alternating digital/analog text and then going to sleep. I know that the computer rebooted as announced by the bell. Here's what i did to cause the problem:
First tried to dl the MagicTune screen picture adjusting program, but I dl'd the one for the 173p model. Installed it and when I ran it, there were several things not available. So I tried to uninstall it with Windows 7's uninstall program in order to attempt a new install.. It showed up in the Trash Bin, but was still in windows explorer. I tried to simply delete it from there, but kept getting a dropdown stating that a file was still open somewhere and had to be closed first. I couldn't find the o[pen file and tried to retore the file that was in the rashbin...and was then asked to reboot. On rebooting, the screen never showed anything but what i described above.
I do have the CD with MagicTune on it, but can't attempt to load it because the monitor screen doesn't respond to a booted computer. I do have a laptop that is networked with the desktop, both have Windows 7. Wondering if i can hook the desktop to the laptop so that I can fix the problem? If not, what am I to do?
