Windows 7: Samsung t260 and windows 7

Samsung t260 and windows 7

Got a new eMachines t1831 desktop with Windows 7 and there is some kind of a conflict between the machine and my monitor as the machine blinks (just goes black for a second or so) on a random basis. Say once every 2 or 3 minutes but sometimes its more frequent than that. It will blink if left to its own but seems to blink more as I do more mouse clicking with an open browser. Furthermore occasionally I get random browser/pane and image resizing (enlarging and the going back to a smaller frame). Just by clicking on it it gets larger and then smaller. I hooked up the desktop to a smaller Samsung Syncmaster 220wm monitor and there are no issues at all. It is fast and just as expected, so the issues are related to the t260 monitor. Does anyone have any insight into this problem? I have done searches and have not found anything specific that seems to definitively address the problem. Thanks in advance.

Are you sure that you have the latest driver for your monitor?

I did the driver update deal through the computer. I also went on the Samsung site and the driver is dated 4/1/2008 and does not list Windows 7 support, only through Vista.

Use the vista driver, but install it in vista compatibility mode .... Compatibility Mode

Thanks, I am going to give it a try. Do you know if I am running in analog or digital mode on my monitor. I have never done anything to it to make it go in either mode. Am running it via a VGA/SVGA cable. Sorry if it is a stupid question but I am given a choice when installing the drivers between analog and digital and I dont know. You would think that Samsung would have made a driver available by now for Windows 7 and this monitor by now.

VGA is analog, so that's what you'll be running in.

If your monitor supports DVI, I recommend using it.

DVI-D is digital, DVI-A is analog, and DVI-I is compatible with both.

Well I followed your instructions and things got better but still not where they belong. I set the compatability to Vista SP2. The monitor has not stopped randomly blinking but it does so occasionally, more often when I click on the mouse. Total blinking has been cut down but it is still too much. And I am still having an issue with browsers/stuff resizing (getting large and then going small). Sigh, at first I thought I had this totally fixed and then came the blinks again.

I'll be interested in whether you can resolve this or not, because this is one of the monitors that I have been considering buying. When you updated the driver, was that only the monitor driver, or did you also update the video card driver?

I did the general driver update through the system and did not go and specifically download a a driver for the video (I have aNvidia GeForce 7150). If that wont screw anything else I willl be more than happy to try that out. Its been a pretty good monitor, no dead pixels, etc.

Definitely install the driver directly from Nvidia, not Windows Updates. If you have any problem getting the driver installed, use Driver Sweeper in Safe Mode to remove the old driver before installing the new.

EDIT: The only thing to be careful about, is that you ONLY uninstalled the video driver and nothing else. I don't think that the current version of Driver Sweeper will do so, but in an older version, it also offered to uninstall the native VGA driver, which I was dumb enough to let it do, and I could not reboot to desktop at all, and had to reinstall the OS.
