Hello, My winXP cannot recognize monitor Asus VH232T - windows suggests 4:3 resolutions only. Can you please advise where can I download the monitor driver? Video card is ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Thank...


Monitors do not generally require drivers. The .inf drivers to run almost all monitors are already in Windows.

The problem here is in the settings of the graphics card.

Many users aim for Maximum resolution, when what they should aim for is Optimum resolution, balancing the RAM, CPU, GPU, GRAM and Monitor''s resources in the most efficient and effective way.

Keeping the relevant software updated also has an impact on graphics performance (grpahics Card Drivers, Java, Flash, DirectX, Video Codecs, etc.)

If the video resolution is set too high (or too low), beyond the graphics capabilities of the monitor, on reboot, the monitor will be unable to resolve the image.

The simplest solution would be to use a different monitor to adjust the video resolution, shut down then test the preferred monitor again.

Right Click on desktop>Properties>Settings then use the slider scale to adjust resolution, then Apply, Yes on the optimum setting, them OK.

Find the optimum setting in XP with your graphics card for this monitor and you should be fine.

Hope this helps.

When i turn on my computer i get the message"NOT OPTIMUM MODE, RECOMMENDED MODE 1280x1024 60Hz" What is the meaning if this?

This is just your computer trying to give you the best resolution your monitor can handle. With the extent of modern technology being what it is, most devices will communicate information between themselves without a human being needed for most of it. This case is a perfect example. Many new monitors will "tell" the computer what their maximum resolution and refresh rate are, and the computer will automatically set your video card to use those settings. Resolution is the "1280x1024" part of the message, which refers to the number of pixels and size of area to be used on the monitor. Refresh rate is the "60Hz" part of the message, and isn't really important unless you see a flicker on your monitor or are getting into the advanced usage of a large, powerful monitor system.

The message you received was because of a miscommunication between the monitor and the computer. The monitor had no factory set value for its "Optimum Mode", so your computer was forced to ask you for input. The recommended mode should work just fine for you, so feel free to ignore that message unless it starts causing you problems, like an odd flicker in your screen or the screen not displaying your desktop properly.

The optimum resolution for this monitor is 1280x1,024 @60Hz.
The resolution setting is done at the PC not at the monitor.
After 5 years, more likely components failure will be the filter caps in the power supply section, that will be the first thing to look for inside. You can see failed SAMSUNG monitors here:

What happen when you hook this monitor up to other PC that has the video setting 1280 X 1024 60 Hz? Just ant to narrow down the problem before opening up the monitor. You may have logic problem in the logic board. If it does the same with other PC, then open it up and inpsect the inside for such thing as failed caps on the logic board or on the main power supply board, I think more likely to be ROM chip on the logic board is scrambled.

Just look for the newest driver there is for your graphics card. Try here

If you still can't set the resolution to match the optimum for your new monitor then the graphics card isn't capable of matching it. You could add a new graphics card.

Screen blacks out

OK you need to try this monitor on another pc so as to write off a faulty graphics card. If your settings on monitor match the pc and youve tried the auto settings button, there is a faulty lcd for replacement.
