Question about Computer Monitors
I recently purchased the samsung 2232BW Plus as a monitor to use with my laptop. I'm using the vga cable and NOT the dvi cable. The laptop is an old dell inspiron 1100.
I thought for sure I was having interference on the monitor from my power supply that sits on my desk so I removed the power supply, my cell phone, my speakers and anything that could possibly emit any current away from the monitor... but the problem persists.
The problem with his huge monitor is that everything is distorted at other screen resolutions. 1680x1050 gives the most clear picture and ability to maximize viewing space.
I updated the driver from the samsung website and still no luck. I thought it may have been my video card but the screen works fine for a period of time then begins to flicker. Sometimes, after extended periods of flickering, I can hit the auto-adjust button on the monitor itself and it will correct itself.... sometimes it will not correct itself.
I checked the refresh rates and the max refresh rate on this resolution is only 60Hz... I thought updated the driver would allow a higher refresh rate but no luck on that either.
Is this a hardware issue with the monitor or a problem with my setup? Should I return the monitor for another one?
Many thanks in advance for your assistance.
Can your monitor AND PC put out that resolution??
I don't think your Dell and put that out, if it's an "old" machine.
