I would assume you need to change your display's resolution. The easiest way is to right click on the background/desktop and choose properties. Choose the settings tab at the top of the window and move the lever to the far right. 1680x1050 would be best for a 22in. For I have a 22in myself. Nice ;]

ASUS computer not identifying AOC monitor correctly, cannot set native resolution.


Ok. I looked at the AOC site that you went to for the drivers. The drivers come in a ZIP package. Did you extract the files from the ZIP folder or did you point the computer to the ZIP file? The computer probably wont see the files inside the ZIP unless they are extracted first. There are three files inside the folder. The .inf file should trigger the driver load.

Tip

Flickering LCD/CRT monitor screen or unstable image fix


If the screen flickers, make sure the display settings in Windows match the native resolution and refresh rate for the monitor. You can find the native resolution of a flat panel display in the specifications, in the printed material or on the box that came with the monitor. Some common native resolutions are 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1920 x 1080, and 1680 x 1050. To find out more about optimal screen resolutions see my tip on resolutions here.

The most common refresh rate for LCD monitors is 60 Hz. This normally cannot be changed for flat panel displays using Plug and Play settings. However, if you are using special video software to increase or decrease the refresh rate, change the refresh rate to match the default refresh rate specification of the monitor. To find out more about refresh rates see my tip here.

STEP 1
To change the screen resolution and refresh rate settings in Windows, do the following:
- In Windows XP
See my tip on setting up the optimum screen resolution for Windows XP here.

- In Windows Vista
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel .
2. Find the Appearance and Personalization area, and click Adjust Screen Resolution .
3. Move the slider bar until the screen resolution matches the native resolution.
4. Click Advanced settings, and then click the Monitor tab.
5. Select the Screen refresh rate that matches the default rate for your monitor (if it is not already selected).
6. Click OK, and then click OK again.

If you cannot select the native resolution or the native resolution is unavailable, continue to the next step to update the drivers for the graphics adapter on the computer.

You can get the latest updated video drivers from the video hardware manufacturer's Web site. Here is a list showing some of the video hardware websites:

Check for NVIDIA video driver updates at NVIDIA Home Page.
Check for ATI/AMD video driver updates at ATI Home Page.
Check for Intel video support and downloads, Intel Downloads.

After updating the video drivers, go back to Step 1 and try to change the screen resolution again.
Note: If you cannot select the native resolution after updating the video drivers, the graphics adapter in the computer might not support that resolution and may need to be upgraded.

If after changing the resolution and updating video drivers the flickering persists then check the video cable connections. Unplug the cable and inspect the cable for damage. If the cable is damaged, replace it with a new cable. Try to use cables less than 3 meters (10 feet) long.

Monitors are sensitive to magnetic fields so have a look at the environment around the monitor. Speakers, florescent lights, fans, cell phones, radios, and any other electrical device can cause flickering. Temporarily move electrical items away from the monitor to see if they is producing a field that causes the flicker.

If the monitor has more than one type of connection available such as VGA, DVI, or HDMI, try a different type of connection.

To see if the video coming from the computer is causing the problem, temporarily connect the monitor to another computer. If the flicker is gone when the monitor is connected to another computer, the graphics adapter hardware on the first computer might need to be upgraded to use the monitor.

If however the flicker remains then the problem lies within the harware of the monitor itself and is not a software problem. If you have bought this monitor fairly recently then I suggest you take it back to the place of purchace and have them test it. Some monitors carry 3 year warranty support so if you bought it within the warranty period specified by the reseller I suggest you see if you can get refunded or have them swop it out.

Samsung screen is not calibrated properly. There is a line on the right side of the screen that I can't get rid of.


Unfortunately the line didn't show up in the video.

1) New LCD screen?
Should have an Installation CD Disk that comes with it. Use it if so.
Has the Drivers on it.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Don't know which version of the Windows O/S you have.
The device in this case is the LCD monitor.

2) What is the NATIVE screen resolution for the LCD monitor.
Look up the specs on the monitor using it's Model Number on back.

For example I installed an HP 2009M 20-inch widescreen monitor, along with the 26-inch RCA ENV HDTV I use for a monitor.

I had to use the drivers from the disk, but could still not set the native resolution in Display Properties.
There is an alternate resolution to the native one that can be used.
The drivers from the disk made it so.

The 20 inch widescreen is 1600 x 900 (Pixels)
The 26 inch HDTV is set at 1360 x 768 (Pixels)

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
In the Display Properties window click on the Settings tab.

What is the Screen resolution setting? What is it supposed to be?
The Slider on the line is clicked on with the left mouse button, left mouse button held down; then the Slider is slid to the left to decrease screen resolution, or to the right to increase with the mouse.

Color quality should be set to High (32-bit)

1) Installing software (Drivers) from the Installation disk, (Or from the monitor manufacturers support website);
And,
2) Setting the screen resolution;

doesn't help, replace the monitor cable with a known to be good one.

Still no? Your LCD monitor is going out.

How do i get my computer out of the resolution mode?


Apparently the monitor screen resolution setting is not correct. Screen resolution stays up until it is corrected.

Either the setting is off in Windows, or you have been changing the monitor settings, with the monitor.

WinXP:

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.
Go down to where it states Screen Resolution.

What is the pixel setting? For example mine states 1600 x 900 pixels.
I am running dual monitors, and this is the correct screen resolution for the Primary monitor.

If it wasn't I would Left-click on the Slider, hold the left mouse button down, and slide the Slider to the correct native resolution.

(Under Screen Resolution is a line. To the left it states - Less
To the right of the line it states - More
The Slider is the rectangular down arrow on the line )

ALSO;
Under the Color quality heading, make sure in the box under it, that it states - Highest (32 bit)
IF not, left-click on the blue down arrow to the right.
Then left-click right on - Highest (32 bit)

How to know what is the native resolution for your monitor?
Look at the manufacturer name, and the model number on the back.
Type this information in your browser search bar, then click on the search icon.

Look for Specifications.

If you changed the screen resolution settings with the monitor, press the Menu button. The screen should go off.

ALSO, with a new monitor there is an Installation CD Disk, provided with it.
This disk MUST be used. It has the drivers for the monitor on it.

[ Drivers: Small pieces of software that allow the Operating System to 'communicate' with a device.

The monitor is a Device.
Windows XP, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
Operating System ]

If you have Vista or Windows 7, post in a Comment.

That sounds like a monitor problem. I am sure you have tried this but, try unplugging the monitor from the wall and leaving it sit. The standard amount of time is about 20 seconds, but I would leave it sit for a few hours if possible.

Also look on the back for any kind of reset button.

I have a Compaq Presario 5420 computer and bought


You'll have to update your drivers for your video card by going to the Mfg. website and seeing if they have any later drivers than you're currently using. In my case, the 1440x900 monitor was recognized when I downloaded later updates, though upon initial installation it wasn't recognized. My card is an ATI from about 6 years ago.

First, we'll try setting the correct screen resolution. Go to an area of your desktop that has nothing on it and right-click with your mouse. Select the "settings" tab. See if your monitor is described properly in the drop-down box. If not, you may have to install drivers for it to get the proper resolution. Take a look at the slider and see if you can slide it to the proper native resolution for your monitor.

You can always try uninstalling the current driver. Go to control panel | system, click on the hardware tab, then click on the device manager button, expand "Display adapters" then delete your default display device. The best then then is to reboot Windows and let it find your display adapter. Possible that it will boot into the proper resolution, but if not, follow the above directions again, but this time don't delete the driver, instead right-click and select, "update driver." Let's see if that works for you.

It will be compatible with the system, just keep on thing in mind, whatever resolution you set your computer at you may have to keep the ratio aspect active so that way the screen looks properly displayed.

I have an error message on my screen which ios moving around. It says - 'not optimum mode. Recommended mode : 1280 x1024 60Hz'.


Sounds like you have an LCD monitor. LCD monitors look best in their native resolution. Yours must be 1280x1024. You need to (assuming this is a Windows PC) right click on the desktop and choose Personalize, Display Settings (Vista) or Properties, Settings (XP or older). Set the slider to 1280x1024. It'll confirm the change and then the message should never reappear.

My Gateway Computer Screen is faded ,everythink looks like on the screen ...for example- you print something and no paint in the printer and the colors letters.etc. hardly visible ....so my computer screen...


It sounds like the voltages set in the LCD driver color references are dead. Maybe if you open it up it will have a loose voltage divider or bad LCD clock/voltage distribution boss circuit. It can of course be that the transistors on the panel are themselves destroyed, but check the below first:

Set the resolution to the monitor's native resolution (1680x1050), and change the panel's brightness and contrast to try and improve things. If it's not glare, make sure the temperature is okay for operating the monitor and perhaps check the video source (another video card or such.) Did the monitor always have this problem?
