Anyone got a Samsung SM2494HM Screen?

Bought 2 of these new from ebuyer and both seem to have a power related issue. I did last night manage to power one on and again this morning but left it in standby and the power has gone totally.

Ok, disconected Power cord,re-connected and power on the machine. Blue light on the front very quickly blinks and pressing the touch sensitive power button still no power on.

The manual I downloaded says "This monitor has a built-in power management system called PowerSaver. This system saves
energy by switching your monitor to low-power mode when it has not been used for a certain
amount of time. The monitor automatically returns to normal operation when you press a key
on the keyboard. For energy conservation, turn your monitor OFF when it is not needed, or
when leaving it unattended for long periods. The PowerSaver system operates with a VESA
DPM compliant video card installed in your computer. Use the software utility installed on
your computer to set up this feature."

My machine has WinXP Pro, Samsung driver installed and a nVidia 256MB 7900GT about 3-4 yrs old. Does anyone know if I am missing something stupid in this instruction from the manual or are they 2 defunct screens?

Interesting and a possibilty but my Driver is which is v185.85 the amount of times I have tried it total of 3 times on each screen. I box them up then think about trying another idea. their only about 4 days old. Will call Ebuyer for a RMA. But thanks adman 2, I carn't mess around with them as I work for myself as time is money.

the last few weeks from Ebuyer, not blaming ebuyer but blame City Link. The other thing was the screens came from Ebuyers distributer another company not a Ebuyer W/house.

Seems strange 2 screens faulty, will call them Sat.
