    Samsung 205BW Help

    Picked up a Samsung 205BW from PC World on Saturday and have just started using it today.

    It's making a buzzing noise which I can't stand

    1. Anyone else having this problem/do you know how to get rid of it?

    2. If the buzzing continues do you think I'll be able to get a refund from PC World.

    Thanks.

    Edit: was a bit quick off the mark

    By increasing brightness to 90 or above, the buzzing disappears but the monitors too bright

    Another problem - the VGA connector on the monitor may be loose, if I move the cable it's unable to locate a signal and screen goes blank

    I have even taken the brightness from 0-100 and only with my eat touching the screen can I hear a buzzing with the brightness at 0 and the buzzing sound is gone. But as I stated it's completley inaudible (unless my ear is to the screen)

    Is your computer noisy?

    More advice please.

    Took monitor back to PC World today and they couldn't hear the buzzing noise. I can understand this as the background noise in store was high.

    They offered to swap for another monitor - I declined this option.

    They claimed another store had the same monitor in stock so I visited the other store but couldn't find the monitor (didn't ask the staff because they were very busy and I didn't want to wait).

    I don't want the monitor as the noise is going to annoy me and secondly I think a 22" screen would be better because the text size will be larger.

    What shall I do?

    I get that noise from my desk lamp, its some dodgy power regulator. Not a noise from my Screen though, generally PCWorld are fine with returns. Just go in store and shout, i bought a cable opened it up (Screwed packaging in the process) and they still took it back as a "Sign of good will".

    They dont refund PC's, only exchange or replacment.

    Do you think I can get vouchers instead of a refund?

    Am I right in thinking PC World and Fujitsu have got the dimensions wrong way round?

    Height = 514 (20.25 inches)
    Width = 418 (16.5 inches)
