Not sure what the material is, but most likely it is some type of plastic. Glass would not likely scratch easily. But wait... Before you try any chemicals, try this. Use a rubber pencil eraser.

I sometimes find myself in the same situation, on servers where I have SSH public-key login and thus no password at all (that I know), and struggle to remember what I did last time to recover. There is no need to kill the screen. Just disconnect the terminal you are running screen in, then open a new terminal window and reattach (screen -r). Maybe as a ...

It is almost impssible to upgrade the resolution. I tried it myself. The mainboard (Quanta LZ8) has only single channel suport for the special LVDS connector. You need dual channel support for higher resolutions than 1366x768 (like 1600x900).

If disable the Intel driver hotkey feature is not usefull, you can try to change the hotkey and then disable it. On my computer, this method works.

Take the LCD panel out of the laptop casing. The panel should have a label on the back of it with identifying information (model number or serial number). This is an example of a label: On Instructables Go on ebay/google and search for a controller board kit for the model number that you found on the label. This is an example of a controller board kit: On ...

I believe this issue is due to the Samsung screen's auto adjustment feature. My problem occurred when I hit auto adjust by mistake and the screen attempted to adjust the picture to fit the screen, although it did not have enough information to do so. (My background image, like many, does not fill the full screen. The monitor made the assumption it did and ...

I have had the same issue twice, both times because I accidentally hit the "Auto" button (which I am now going to tack into place with superglue). The first time I tried unplugging the monitor, a different cable, a different monitor, resetting the OSD, verifying/changing the refresh rate and resolution, changing the display mode, etc., but nothing worked. ...

Indeed, to equal these monitors as good as possible, a colorimeter is the only tool therefore. Furthermore, the different display technologies (backlight type, panel type, color gamut.) If you want to go deeper into color management, I suggest you this eBook with a quick overview: https://de.scribd.com/doc/235151897/Color-Management-All-About

I've successfully fixed it by following the instructions here. The specs on my screen however were a bit different, to change all the swollen capacitors I needed the ones listed below.

Unfortunately it's usually not an option to have both of the external screens going.

The maximum resolution capability of the Graphics Card & connected Monitor are two separate limits. If the card can do 2048x1536 yet the monitor can only do 1152x864, then that is what Windows will tell you is the current maximum. Windows can 'see' the monitor's spec & will not allow 'unsafe' resolutions. (It can be forced, but that wouldn't answer ...

The specifications given for a motherboard are specifically for that motherboard and do not include additional hardware that would need to be connected. Therefore, the specs for your board indicate it supports 2048x1536 thru the VGA port (D-Sub). This leads me to believe that monitor will work. Note: Verify the proper cable interface is available from ...

I'd start with a colorimeter - but I'll probably get down-voted for the suggestion ;-) Personally, I cannot stand colour variation between screens, yet I don't have the need or wallet for a full-blown professional setup, so my compromise is the ColorMunki Smile, at about 70 quid/bucks/shekels.

Kind of didn't understand your question but, Do you want to disable only start button or taskbar? If you want to disable taskbar on second monitor, just right click taskbar and untick show taskbar in all monitors. If you want to disable Start button you could use a third party application named Classic Shell. It's free. Install it and go to settings, tick ...

If you have this problem after some time when running with -X arg. or just ForwardX11 in /etc/ssh/ssh_config, then run $ ssh username@hostname -Y, to enable trusted X11 forwarding, don't know the exact cause but I'm guessing with -X some features expire after some time, probably to increase security.

I've run into this issue as well and I've decided to write a little utility to restore the position and sizes of the windows on each of the screens. I unfortunately have an AMD card so the Nvidia solutions don't work for me. This utility is very lean right now, but I will continue to improve it if anyone wants to use it. ...

Here are some simple steps to get rid of the problem: Check/replace your monitor cable. Check/update your video (graphic) driver. (this sounds strange but sometimes the driver is the culprit. If the monitor still act strange. Replace it.

Low voltage can be harmful but usually just with items that have motors. In most modern electronics if the supply voltage drops, the devices draw more current in order to keep running which can result in overheating. Anyway, it's a pretty simple to troubleshoot in the end. Getting the tools you need is a different story... Here are your options for ...

You did not mention if you use windows but if you do, maybe this will help you. You can choose to mirror, or duplicate, your desktop on all displays.

I ended up with running brightness adjustment every hour (using http://sven.killig.de/BLUntrl/) via the following autohotkey script: #NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases. #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.

I have a Samsung Ativ Book 8 that I am running Windows 8.1 on. Its screen brightness was stuck on bright. The problem was that Microsoft changed the programming behind how the display drivers worked and did not include the driver update in any part of Windows 8.1. However, when I logged into the AMD website and downloaded the new driver manually, after ...

Is the issue due to the time of day you are reading? Or the overall brightness/contrast of the screen? You could use f.lux to have your screen automatically change warmth over the course of the day, making it much easier on your eyes.

Screens are not universal. There are physical differences in where and how the connecting cables are routed, what connectors are used, the electronics and interfacing, etc. Almost anything can be done if you have enough time, talent, and money. However, the chances are low that the two screens are interchangeable in the sense that all you need to figure ...

There are vendors who sell replacement screens for laptops - you would need to check if the screen size you need is sold. It's not too difficult - armed with a size 0 cross head screwdriver to remove the fascia covering the screen - to replace the screen. See this article for details of how to replace.

Suggestion: In this situation I'd go with a Reverse SSH connection: Instead of your machine doing an ssh, the server machine does an ssh and through port forwarding makes sure that you can ssh back to server machine. But it's certainly not as fun as building it yourself with socat. I'd still recommend getting to the bottom of this pty issue, it's a ...

There is another alternative: Ubuntu has an xrandr utility which allows you to set almost any desktop size you want: your terminal screen becomes a panning window into this virtual desktop. It is an X-windows function, so most Linux releases should have it. I have successfully used this technique to capture higher-resolution images from web-sites, for ...

Faulty connections always manifest themselves as vertical or horizontal bright/dark/colored lines/bands of variable width and/or flickering. Panels which are under pressure present symptoms similar to backlight bleeding, not a totally white and unusable spot. That seems to be a faulty panel and thus will need to be replaced.

If you're asking whether you can record the desktop screen at 1080p resolution using screen recorder software, then the answer is no, you can't. The software usually will record at whatever the current desktop screen resolution is (which you can lower). However if your graphics card is capable of setting the screen resolution to 1080p, then I think it could ...

If you watch a 1080p video (or a 1080i video, for that matter) on a computer with a 720p screen, one of several things can happen: the video will be downscaled to 720p. You'll be able to watch it but it will be at 720p resolution. This is the default behavior if your video player is set to take up the entire screen. the video will be shown at 1080 lines, ...

No the video from using a screen recorder can be at maximum your screen resolution for the ones I know. I suspect there is probably a way but most screen recorders try to make the video recorded look exactly like the one you see.

I think I solved this issue. I was having the same trouble with HDMI as well as a WiDi connection - media players would show video on my laptop but not on the TV display.

Well as stated from the Samsung website this "MagicEco" feature “makes saving energy easy. It adjusts Samsung monitor’s brightness based on how much energy you want to save." So I would assume there would be a setting on your computer based on as mentioned how much energy you are willing to save, so you could lower that requirement which in theory should ...

You have two options: To manually change brighness you have to disable MagicEco which is a powersaving option. With MagicEco enabled you have to adjust the power saving mode (100 %, 75 %, 50 % and off) to change the brightness. Read the manual to locate those settings. If locating those settings is the problem, please leave a comment.

One of solution quoted here worked for me: I had to go in my LCD srcreen menu (Samsung SyncMaster 2333HD), select HDMI source, and use "tool" to rename the source as something else (PC in my case) so that the LCD does not think the source is a HDTV. Then it adjusted very properly without more issues. Note that this operation would be impossible without the ...

As FiveO said, try starting you PC with minimum amount of hardware. Meaning: Mainboard, RAM and CPU. Let away the GPU and other components and see if it starts. Is the PSU Fan spinning? What kind of fan do you use that moving it around causes sparks? werent the wires isolated?
