Question about Computers & Internet
Hello sir ,
I have a nvidia graphics card GE force 6200 (in pci slot).recently i am having a strange problem. as soon as i switch on mycomputer , the display flickers and when i go to my computer the drivesappear as if it is smudged and display is very dull. First i thought itmay be because of my monitor .but when i removed my graphics card , thedisplay becomes normal. and also when i was using my graphics card andwhenever i put my system into standby mode , it would automaticallycome out of standby mode without moving the mouse. Is it somethingrelated to drivers.Do i need to install the latest NVIDIA drivers.
The refresh rate is 60 hz and no other option is available . There is acheck box(hide modes this computer cannot display) below that. If iselect that , then i can select 70 hz and so on upto 100hz. but when iselect anything greater than 70 hz . i get a blank screen and a hzsymbol is shown on the screen. Even if i select 70 hz , the screen isagain blurred and dull and flickers.How do i solve this problem ??
My configuration is as follows:
Intel P4 2.66 ghz
Intel D101GGC motherboard
512 Mb ram
Samsung syncmaster 591s Monitor.
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
