Question about LG L196WTY Monitor

1 Answer

Analog - Out of Range.....going to higher video res

After modifying xorg.conf file to increase video resolution (1440x900) the monitor goes black and displays:


ANALOG
OUT OF RANGE
80.8 KHz 65 Hz

After changing xorg file and ctrl-alt backspace the system comes up to the sign on screen with the higher resolution. After I sign on the monitor displays the above information. I must then revert to original xorg file.

Here is monitor section of xorg:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Unknown"
ModelName "Unknown"
HorizSync 30.0 - 83.0
VertRefresh 56.0 - 75.0
Option "DPMS"
EndSection

I am running 8.10 Ubuntu Linux. Any ideas appreciated.

Sometimes less is more when configuring X, even with the improvements in X.org

I'd remove everything from the section except Section "Monitor" and Identifier "Monitor0".

Let the boot process do the auto-detection of hardware: card and display monitor.

After logging in -- hope this works -- go the Menus:
System > Preferences > Display and try to get things working through that interface.

I have installed viewsonic va1716w monitor using windows xp. I am unable to set its resolution to 1440X900. from display properties it going from 1024X768 to 1280X1024


It is possible that the video driver cannot support 1440X900 resolution.
Try installing the latest video driver and then try the higher screen resolution.

I am using ubuntu 10.04 linux operating system ,but it,s screen resolution is not good .is there any possibility to download and install any vga drivers to get better resolution


Hi,

Go to System, on the top bar, then Preferences and select Monitors.
On the Monitor Preference screen there will be different resolution settings that you can choose.
If there are any resolution settings higher than 800X600 like 1024X768 etc. select it and apply.

If there is no other settings available go to System then Administration and select Additional driver.
When the Additional drivers screen appears check if it recommends a a driver to be downloaded.
If it does, download the driver and then you will be able to get higher screen resolutions.

If there is no additional driver to download it gets a bit tricky.
You will need to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
The file will look someting like this:


Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Philips 190S"
ModeLine "1280x1024" 108.0 1280 1328 1440 1688 1024 1025 1028 1066 +hsync +vsync
Option "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"
Option "DPMS"
HorizSync 30-82
VertRefresh 56-76
EndSection
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Philips 190S"
Device "Default Device"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
EndSubSection

SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
EndSubSection

EndSection

Section "Module"
Load "glx"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
EndSection


It will be wise to make a backup of this file if you are going to edit it. (xorg.conf.old)
Inside the file you will see your screen and its resolution. (Preferred mode)
You need to change the resolution, save the file and restart your session.
If all went well your resolution will be set to what you specified, if your display freaks out replace the xorg.conf file with the xorg.conf.old file.

Hope one of these options solves your problem!

Some games need 1440x900 resolution to play but when i go to the display settings to change it, its not there just 1360x768, 1600x1200 and lower ones. I need help????


Hi there. If you're able to get 1600x1200 on the monitor, that should suffice--anything equaling or larger than the game's required res is ok...the picture will have a little bit of border on the edges because of the higher resolution but shouldn't be a hinderance at all. Remember this...the higher the resolution, the harder the graphics card has to work to maintain proper movement of the images in the game. Use the exact res if possible. However a close, higher res is fine, too.---Rick

Sync out of range message 29.8k/60, how to clear this ?


This monitor (supposedly) only supports the following ranges:

Horizontal Rate (KHz) 30-70 Vertical Rate (Hz) 56-85
29.8K < 30K (although darn close).

This is usually fixed in the settings for your graphics card. Are you running Windows or Linux?

If Windows: You can load up the drivers for the monitor (I never do) or choose to hardwire the monitor to a VGA LCD 1024x768 and then even force the vertical refresh to 75Hz (or something nice). Try that.

In Linux (under Xwindows), you'll need to look at the /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if using that) and change the section for the monitor to include the limits as shown above.

Do a "man xorg.conf" for the parms. They're also on Xorg's website.

Fedora -9 installation


it should be supported.

Either boot in single user and login in the terminal window, go to your xorg.conf file and edit the resolution to something smaller e.g 1024x768.

Dynex 19 LCD


I went over the specs of the TV.
The max input for the VGA is 1360x768 at 60Hz. Anything higher will make the TV go bonkers.
I would try to get the resolution at 1360x768, then change the frequency to 60Hz.

Have a new 23 inch samsung monitor that requires res 1920x1080


The problem is the cable connection to the video card.
When using the DVI output of the FX 5500, the maximum screen resolution that you can select is 1280 x 1024.

But, if you use the Analog (VGA) output, the card will support resolutions up to 2048 x 1536, which should be ok.

Assuming you're using the latest drivers from here , the next step would be to ask MSI for a bios upgrade that supports the higher resolution.

Problem with my LG monitor L194WT


You will have to increase the referesh rate first and then go into the game and reset the resolution. The resolution bit is secondary. If increasing the refresh rate works, then you dont have to change the resolution :)
