i got a very nice gift and need a little help please

Postby lurkingatu2 » Sat Jul 12, 2008 6:35 pm

well i went to circuitcity with my dad he wanted to get a program and he was going to buy me a
cat5 wire for my router so i did not have to use the wireless part of the router (i doin't trust
my neigbors) and as i'm looking at the wires he is over looking at the pc's and so i got what i
needed and he asks me if i like this monitor and i said sure so he asks if i would like to have it
so i said sure and damed if he did not buy it for me i about fell over (long story between me and him)

anyhow he got me a Samsung syncmaster 953BW lcd monitor
http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/deta ... sung+953bw

:celb:

so i hook it up and install the driver for it no problem on the cd with the driver it has some programs
1 called natural color and 1 called magic tune

so i installed the one called natural color and on every restart i get a error about Acer not being able
to mount my partition for the Acer eDatasecurity management so i uninstalled natural color and everything
is fine now

so do i need these programs to make this monitor work right or are thay just extra stuff because everything
seems to be working with the monitor

the pc has NVIDIA GeForce 6100 nforce 405 and it seems like i can adjust things there i'v never had a lcd
monitor before so i doin't know if i need the programs on the cd

thanks

I can only say something about the wireless. Use a password for the router. This will stop anyone from leeching off you. Sometimes called a WEP Key . Don't you have Qwest? They secure the modem/router.

thanks Jean

i fixed the wireless part of the router by turning the wifi part off and hard wired both pc's i was
just wondering about if i needed the programs that came on the cd for the monitor since one of them
that i installed was messing with my computer when i started it so i uninstalled it

now i do not want try the magic tune one because the natural color program did not like this pc
i would just like to know if thay are needed is all

the monitor is working fine with out the programs that came on the cd i just doin't want to messup
the monitor

i mean i installed the driver for the monitor but not the programs

thanks again

I have no recollection of ever installing any software to run my monitor. Sorry. Rule of thumb if it ain't broke don't fix it.

No problems, I haven't made it to my own site for two days. Congrats uncle Lurking. :rotf:

I hope the cat comes back, it is family. I cried for 3 days when my cat and best pal of 13 years died.
