Answers :

Hello,
I have done some research about your product. If you have checked all the cables and connections to make sure the pins are not bent and cables are connected properly, etc. You stated that you hooked the monitor up to a different computer system that is known to be working and you still experience the same problem then it is not your video card and is your monitor. According to the samsung website your monitor is covered for 3 years parts and labor but you will have to pay for shipping and handling, you can check the site to confirm this among other bits of information. I think the monitors back lamp has gone out and will need service done to repair it which you may or may not want to do your self, but the following is a tutorial on how to replace the back lamp yourself. Just remember if you choose to do it yourself you could void any warranty that currently covers your monitor and this tutorial is just to give you an idea of how to replace a back lamp on an lcd monitor and is not your specific monitor instructions. Check the samsung website first as they also have troubleshooting guides to help you run basic tests and such, but they are very basic and will not help you much in my opinion as I have looked at them. They simply want you to send your monitor if for services. I hope this has helped you and if you need further assistance please let me know with a comment under this solution and I will be more than happy to help.

If you do not mind please rate my help, I would appreciate it. Thanks
Chirping - sound like smps issues. Its trying to start.
\015\012If you can think you can open it, looking at the main power PCB for bulging caps would be a good start see badcaps.com.
\015\012Usually replace the lot if you dont have and LCR meter.
\015\012While there, also remelt reflow the solder joints on the transformers and bigger semis, such as the diode packs.
\015\012From there, it is either look to see if anything looks burnt which means tricky semi testing and replacement.
\015\012However ebay or lcdrepair may have a spare power board, and you shold be going again.
