    I came home today and found my Samsung Syncmaster 216BW in power save mode (blank screen, power button blinking) and it won't come out of it. I've tried everything I can think of, including trying it on my other pc and it still just flashes with no picture. Its not the refresh rate or resolution as these settings have been fine since I first installed it. I've tried rebooting and re-inserting the cables a number of times without any luck, and the power turning off/on and hitting keys does nothing. None of the menu buttons on the actual monitor itself do anything either.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Searching the net, others seem to have had similar issues with other samsung monitors.

    Yeah I've tried doing that a number of times but the test won't come up.

    Someone suggested switching the ram around. It worked!
