The refresh rate (most commonly the "vertical refresh rate", "vertical scan rate" for CRTs) is the number of times in a second that display hardware draws the data it is being given. This is distinct from the measure of frame rate in that the refresh rate includes the repeated drawing of identical frames, while frame rate measures how a video source can feed an entire frame of new data to a display.
For example, most movie projectors advance from one frame to the next one 24 times each second. But each frame is illuminated two or three times before the next frame is projected using a shutter in front of its lamp. As a result, the movie projector runs at 24 frames per second, but has a 48 or 72 Hz refresh rate.
On CRT displays, increasing the refresh rate decreases flickering, thereby reducing eye strain. However, if a refresh rate is specified that is beyond what is recommended for the display, damage to the display can occur.

Frame rates are considered important in video games. The frame rate can make the difference between a game that is playable and one that is not. The first 3D first-person adventure game for a personal computer, 3D Monster Maze, had a frame rate of approximately 6 frame/s, and was still a success. In modern action-oriented games where players must visually track animated objects and react quickly, frame rates of between 30 to 60 frame/s are considered minimally acceptable by some, though this can vary significantly from game to game. Most modern action games, including popular first person shooters such as Halo 3, run around 30 frames a second, while others, such as Unreal Tournament 3, run at 60 frames a second. The framerate within games, particularly PC games, typically varies with the hardware configuraton, and depending upon what is currently happening in the game at a given moment. When the production of a frame makes large demands on the CPU and / or GPU, the framerate falls.
A culture of competition has arisen among game enthusiasts with regards to frame rates, with players striving to obtain the highest frame/s count possible. Indeed, many benchmarks (such as 3DMark) released by the marketing departments of hardware manufacturers and published in hardware reviews focus on the frame/s measurement. Modern video cards, often featuring NVIDIA or ATI chipsets, can perform at over 160 frame/s on graphics intensive games such as F.E.A.R. One single GeForce 8800 GTX has been reported to play F.E.A.R. at up to 386 frame/s (at a low resolution).[citation needed] This does not apply to all games: some games apply a limit on the frame rate. For example, in the Grand Theft Auto series, Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City have a standard 30 frame/s (Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas runs at 25 frame/s) and this limit can only be removed at the cost of graphical and gameplay stability. It is also doubtful whether striving for such high frame rates is worthwhile. A regular CRT monitor (somewhat outdated now) runs at up to 85 hertz, meaning that any performance reached by the game over 85 frame/s is discarded. For that reason it is not uncommon to limit the frame rate to the refresh rate of the monitor in a process called vertical synchronization. However, many players feel that not synchronizing every frame produces sufficiently better game execution to justify some "tearing" of the images.

In conclusion: If you want better experience in games you must upgrade your videocard.

I connected my AOC moniter to TV tuner card.I can watch all the TV channels now but a box in the middle of screen displayed as input not supported. Please suggest me???


not certain what that means but check the broadcast protocols that are options of the card's menus and the protocols the monitor can use.
Also check the maximum resolution of the monitor, the refresh rates it can support, the modes too and check that the settings on the cards software are not exceeding them, it may be that the resolution or refresh rates are beyond the monitor's capability to display

Compaq fs740 text too faint and fuzzy to read well


Firstly you need to switch to the monitor's optimal resolution of 1024x768 @ 85Hz and before anyone posts anything about resolution 1024x768 @ 85Hz is the optimum not the maximum. To change to this resolution: Assuming you are using Windows XP click with the right mouse button an an empty part of the desktop and select Properties (or click Start, then click Control Panel then click Display), on the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider bar until it says 1024x768 and then click Apply. Also in Display settings you'll find an advanced button, in the advanced panel you'll see the option to adjust the refresh rate, try adjusting this to 85Hz. Now press the Menu Button on the front of the monitor and press + of - until you see an option called "Degauss" and press the select button on the front of the monitor, your screen will do a disturbing jump and flicker accompanied by a metallic thud, this is normal. If this doesn't help message back.

How to adjust or change a monitor's refresh rate.


If you've ever used a CRT monitor, you know that fine-tuning your refresh rate is essential. The refresh rate of a display is measured in Hertz (abbreviated Hz) and specifies the number of times per second that a display is illuminated.<br /> <br /> Setting the refresh rate to 60 Hz - a common default value - tells the monitor to redraw itself 60 times per second. For most people, that setting on a CRT monitor is too slow, resulting in an annoying flicker that can cause headaches, eyestrain, and fatigue. Bumping the refresh rate to a higher number can reduce that flicker, as long as the monitor itself can handle the faster rate.<br /> <br /> If you're using an LCD monitor then a safe refresh rate lies in the 60Hz-75Hz range. A greater refresh rate when it comes to LCD's means greater performance.<br /><br /> <b><u>How to adjust the refresh rate</u></b><br /> Firstly you will need to right click on your desktop background and select <b>Properties</b>.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_72.JPG" /> <br /> This will display the <b>Display Properties</b> window as show below.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_73.jpg" /> <br /> You will need to click the <b>Settings</b> tab.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_74.JPG" /> <br /> Once in the <b>Settings</b> tab you will need to click on the <b>Advanced</b> button.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_75.JPG" /> <br /> Then click on the <b>Monitor</b> tab.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_76.JPG" /> <br /> Here you can change the screen's refresh rate. Make sure the box next to <b>Hide modes that this monitor cannot display</b> is ticked. After you have selected the refresh rate you wish click <b>OK</b>. It would be a very good idea if you have the user's manual for the monitor handy just so that you can see what the manufacturer suggests the refresh rate should be set to.

My samsung syncMaster 753s moniter does not support resolution of xp what i do further


Hi there,

Your monitor can easily support Windows XP resolutions. The problem almost certainly lies in your video settings. You need to lower your screen resolution and/or refresh rate.
If you can not start Windows due to this problem, you will have to start Windows in VGA compatibility mode. Follow these steps:
  1. When your PC starts up, press F8 a few times
  2. This will bring up a menu whereby you can select VGA mode from the list
  3. Once you are logged into Windows, right click anywhere on the desktop & select "properties"
  4. Then go to display settings & select a resolution of 1024 X 768.
  5. Go to advanced settings and make sure your refresh rate is no more than 70 to 75Mhz
  6. Restart Windows normally & your display should be correct.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

FPD1960 TFT LCD Monitor that turns on and you see the Windows Screen, and then goes black. Each time I turn it off and then back on, it repeats this pattern. All cables are securely fastened, I am using...


Windows is using a video mode the LCD monitor can't display. The cable doesn't matter in this case. It's an issue of the refresh rate and the resolution set in the system.

When the system boots, hit F8 just before the Windows splash screen would come up. Start the computer in safe mode with networking support. It should be able to come up in safe mode because the resolution will go to 640x480 or 800x600 by default.

Once you get to the desktop, go under the desktop properties. Hit Advanced. then go under the monitor tab. Make sure the monitor is defined. If it says generic display it will give you resolutions and refresh rates you can't use. If it isn't defined, you can install the driver under properties.

Finally, set the default resolution to something easy like 800x600 and try the refresh around 60-65hrz.

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.

My syncmaster 245 bw will only display a blank screen through the dvi port. Another crt monitor works fine through the vga port . I'm running a nVidia 7800 GS video card.


You need to adjust the monitor refresh rate to 60 Hertz or 70 Hertz.
Use the CRT first to adjust it, then after adjust,plug in your Sync Master to see is it perfect or not,find the best frequency that work best.

To adjust it,right click on the screen,enter properties, then click setting tab.
Then in advanced tab, click it then you see the monitor tab, find the perfect screen refresh rate.

Screen shift


Try setting the refresh rate to 60 Hz. (Maybe 75).
Is it xp?
Right click an empty part of the screen, properties, under monitor (I think; I'm on Vista) you can choose the refresh rate.
Most LCD's should be at 60 Hz.
