Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 930SB limited by Vista

Hello, my name is James.

My monitor works fine with Windows XP. I can set the refresh rate to 120Hz and I run my screen resolution at 1024x768. When I go into Windows Vista, the most I can refresh at is 100 Hz and thet leaves me with black edges on the side of the screen and I can't stretch it out any further.

I've scoured the 'Net and can't seem to find any driver files for Windows Vista. I've even called NEC-Mitsubishi support and they told me they weren't going to make a Vista driver for my monitor. So now to compromise, I run Windows Vista with 85Hz, at least I get a full screen.

Please help me with my problem and thank you in advance.

The monitor is designed for 85Hz, I assume you went to the motherboard manufacture for drivers (onboard video), and they did not have them, or were not very good. The Fix......For better video, look for a video card that has drivers for vista, and can support you monitors specs. As you were running XP before and the monitor dates to 2004, your motherboard probably has an AGP slot, although it could have PCIe slot, (you gave no info on computer setup), that you can put a Graphics Card in. ****Just a heads up,as of April 11, 2017 Microsoft has completely stopped support for vista, and program manufactures are not really supporting it either.

Go to settings and uncheck "hide frequencies my monitor does not support." now go back and see if 120h isn't an option.

Vista is no longer supported and was not greatly supported with drivers. First the setting you have is fine and only people doing graphics or high end gaming would notice a difference. If they are doing those they should have bought a separate graphics card. your options are:
1. get a graphics card if you want higher res.
2. upgrade your os to Win7 (although coming to end of life it's more current)
3. try using XP drivers or downgrade to XP

I don't know about your eyesight but for me flicker at 60Hz is terrible but at 70Hz is usable and at 85Hz is perfect. I would not worry about refresh rate if you've got 85 and above.
To get the best from a screen you need the graphics card working well. XP drivers can be installed on Vista 32 bit but you will need to look up how to do that. Basically unpack the files then tell the Windows driver installer were to pick up the drivers.

If there are actual Windows Vista drivers from the graphics card maker then use them.

You may find you can buy a better card which will improve your monitor. Obviously try and get one with Vista drivers. Personally I'd skip Vista and go for Windows 7.

I am running Windows 7 on a machine with an old ATI Radeon X2400 card at 1600x1200 on a similar monitor at 85Hz. Super sharp compared to the same resolution on a different card. I just kept swapping parts until I got what I liked.

SOURCE: refresh rates and resolutions

What's the question? There's no real need to go above 85Hz, I think in nvindia you have to go to an advance menu and you can force an output, google it.

I have a Mag Innovision 2200W Monitor. I messed with the settings, and now I get a ''mode not supported'' error. The computer is running in the background, and works with other monitors, but not this one....


Hi


To resolve this issue connect a monitor which is working with the Computer. Now right click on desktop and select properties(if windows XP) or personalize/screen resolution (if windows vista / 7)-> Now click on settings tab (windows XP) or change the resolution of your monitor-> Choose a lower resolution rate maybe 800X600. Now try connecting the other monitor with your Computer and it will work.

If not then check for the refresh rate of your monitor, adjust it to 60 Hz. You can adjust refresh rate from settings tab->advanced button(in XP). Screen resolution/Display settings(under windows 7/vista)->Advanced setting->monitor tab ->refresh rate.

This will surely resolve your issue.

Screen will not display


Hi,
Have you ensured that your display card driver AND correct monitor driver is installed. This is to make sure that your display card only generates signals that your Acer monitor is capable of handling. If you do not have the driver CD for your monitor you can download the software from www.acer.com. The problem is most likely that your display card is generating a refresh rate which your monitor cant handle. Go to your display properties and lower the refresh rate of your display card and see if this solves the problem.
Best wishes,

Mitsubishi NEC Diamond PRO 930SB Monitor - cover removal?


Remove the screws as you have done. Looking at the monitor front on you'll see 3 bits sticking down from the top (in the deatil gap) which are clips unclip them by pushing through the corresponding holes along the top. Also there's a clip at each side on the underside of the monitor which are very obvious. With the monitor facing down and everything unclipped just pull the cover upwards. It's not easy but work your way round the front edge and it will come.

Screen flickers badly at the resolution i want to use and no option to alter refresh rate - any ideas?


I assume you're using windows XP or Vista ? The OS uses data from the monitor to tell it resolutions and refresh rates supported. If you get flicker and cannot alter the refresh rate, it is because the monitor will not supprt a fatsre refresh rate. Your only option, unfortunately, is to get a new monitor, or the cheaper option, use a different resolution.

Mitsubishi diamondpro 930sb flickering


I have had the same problem with my 991sb and most recently my 930sb. The first was replaced at NEC's expense however on this second one i'm out of luck. I think its a problem with its power inverter. It may be repairable by a tv repair place. I'll be looking into it and let you guys know.

Monitor turning itself off


It sounds like the problem is with the computer's video adapter settings. It is very likely that the monitor cannot handle the settings. If you boot into safe mode, can you see everything? If so, then the normal mode settings are too high. Safe mode defaults to the lowest possible settings (thats why everything will look really big) Try turning down the resolution (Right click on the desktop, select properties, go to settings tab) to the lowest possible setting, and then slowly try turn them back up again until you can find the maximum setting the monitor can handle.
