Try to update your drivers for your graphic card and see if that helps, but my guess is that your screen dosent suport higher mz than 60, everything above that will get you screen blurred or black.

Good luck!

Download and install the latest driver software for your video card to make sure that's up to date. Then make sure you've got the right monitor type specified and you should have the right choice of resolutions and refresh rates. If the particular monitor you have is not offered as a choice by your operating system, you can usually get specifications from the manufacturer's website. Then pick a generic monitor type that offers the highest refresh rate the monitor can handle.

I Just Formatted My System With Windows XP Service Pack 3 , My Displays Are Not Clear ,Its In Blur State.


If you mean the displays are kind of fuzzy at a partiuclar resolution, try changing the refresh rate. Whenever you install XP, refresh rates default to 60 Hz - this is rarely the optimum for the display. Most displays operate best from 70-75 Hz or possibly higher. Right click on the desktop, observe DISPLAY PROPERTIES window. Select the SETTINGS tab, highlight the display you wish to modify, then click the ADVANCED button. Select the MONITOR tab. Use the SCREEN REFRESH RATE pull-down to select the refresh rate you need. Be advised, if you select a rate the monitor cannot handle you will lose visual on the display and could damage the monitor. You can avoid this by selecting the "HIDE MODES THAT THIS MONITOR CANNOT DISPLAY: check box.

How to adjust or change a monitor's refresh rate.


If you've ever used a CRT monitor, you know that fine-tuning your refresh rate is essential. The refresh rate of a display is measured in Hertz (abbreviated Hz) and specifies the number of times per second that a display is illuminated.<br /> <br /> Setting the refresh rate to 60 Hz - a common default value - tells the monitor to redraw itself 60 times per second. For most people, that setting on a CRT monitor is too slow, resulting in an annoying flicker that can cause headaches, eyestrain, and fatigue. Bumping the refresh rate to a higher number can reduce that flicker, as long as the monitor itself can handle the faster rate.<br /> <br /> If you're using an LCD monitor then a safe refresh rate lies in the 60Hz-75Hz range. A greater refresh rate when it comes to LCD's means greater performance.<br /><br /> <b><u>How to adjust the refresh rate</u></b><br /> Firstly you will need to right click on your desktop background and select <b>Properties</b>.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_72.JPG" /> <br /> This will display the <b>Display Properties</b> window as show below.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_73.jpg" /> <br /> You will need to click the <b>Settings</b> tab.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_74.JPG" /> <br /> Once in the <b>Settings</b> tab you will need to click on the <b>Advanced</b> button.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_75.JPG" /> <br /> Then click on the <b>Monitor</b> tab.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_76.JPG" /> <br /> Here you can change the screen's refresh rate. Make sure the box next to <b>Hide modes that this monitor cannot display</b> is ticked. After you have selected the refresh rate you wish click <b>OK</b>. It would be a very good idea if you have the user's manual for the monitor handy just so that you can see what the manufacturer suggests the refresh rate should be set to.

Unable to get 1024 x 768 resolution on philips 105e


Hello, that resolution should be available but only at a refresh rate of 60hz as per the specs pasted below. Can you see this resolution setting on your graphics card? If not then perhaps you need to check you have the latest driver for your graphics card and just make sure that your graphics card does support that setting anyway.

I have just connected my old (beloved) SyncMaster 1100MB to my new computer with Windows 7. I can only get a refresh rate of max 60 Hz to the monitor. It gives too much flicker. How can I get a higher...


Right click your desktop and select "properties". On the last tab (where you set the resolution) click the "advanced" button. On the new property sheet go to the monitor tab and uncheck the box that say something like "hide modes that this monitor does not support". Click OK then. Now you should have everything up to 200 Hz.
Hope this helps. If you need any more assistance, don't hesitate to come back to me. Else, if the problem is solved, please do ACCEPT this solution. Best Wishes. Thanks for using FixYa.

Monitor displaying out of range message


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

This usually happens when you select a resolution or a refresh rate that is beyond the monitor range. For example if your monitor supports a max. resolution of 1024x768 then if you give it a signal of 1600x1200 it will display out of range.

Solution of this problem is to reduce the resolution or refresh rate frequency.

Changing screen resolution in Windows XP: First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig 1.1 below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

xp-screen-resolution-1.gif

The areas worth noting are:

Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

How to Change the Screen Refresh Rate of Your Monitor loadTOCNode(2, 'summary');
  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.

    Alternatively, right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Settings tab, and then click Advanced.
  3. Click the Monitor tab, and then click the screen refresh rate that you want to use.
NOTE:
  • The default refresh rate setting is 60 Hertz (HZ); however, your monitor may support a higher setting. Check your manufacturer's documentation for information about the settings that your monitor supports.
  • If you use a higher refresh rate, you can reduce the rate that your screen flickers; however, if you specify a refresh rate that is too high for your monitor, your screen may become unusable and your hardware may be damaged.
  • Changes to the refresh rate affect all users that log on to the computer.

Graphics card problem


Shankar,

I looked up your Monitors specefications to try to confirm my theory. Which is that this is a resolution problem. Your Monitor is rated for a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 at 68 Mhz so this is the max that your Video card can drive this at. However with a CRT Monitor running them at their MAX for extended periods of time can lead to the fuzzyness your talking about. Its likely that when you switched it to the On board or secondary videocard that it defaulted to the standard SVGA display levels of 800 x 600 resolution. Allowing the Video card to increase the refresh rate to 85Mhz.

Which coincidentally is what the Samsung recommends as the optimum setting for this monitor so I believe if you scale down to 800 X 600 @ 85Mhz I think this will clear up your problem. Though if your like me you like to maximize your screen real estate as much as possible.

There are alot of monitors in the market for around $100 USD that have "Native" resolutions of around 1280 X 1024 @ 75Mhz

Hope this helps you
Dave

Hi
There is no problem with the video card, for sure... it is the monitor has the limit. 100% sure. I have seen a lot, even screens limited to 800 x 640... Try a different monitor instead... use a 65-70HZ type to achieve higher resolution.
