Question about Optiquest Q 71 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Graphics Driver problem

I have upgraded a W95 station to W98 but it stubbornly refuses to do any better than 16 colours @640*480 It has an AOpen MX59 Pro motherboard but I have failed totally to find a driver which raises the performance to SVGA, which it was before installing W98.  I have tried windows update which provided an AC97 sound driver but the Aopen and VIA websites do not seem to have a driver which will solve this problem.  Monitor is an LG Studioworks 560N and quite capable of better, it seems I need an inf file rather than the default monitor.inf which W98 finds.  I have tried all sorts of googled driver sites, does anyone have any advice on how to solve this. TIA David Thomas no more then 16 color@600*480

SOURCE: no sound

Is there a rca/headphone jack for the monitor? Make sure that the jack is plugged into the computer's audio out rca jack. A driver should not be needed for the audio on the monitor. If the jack is plugged in make sure that the audio is not muted on the computer. Right click on the speaker icon in the right bottom of the screen on the windows tray nand open the sound mixer. Make sure all the sounds are on. Then check the monitor settings and make sure the sound is on and not muted thru the monitor buttons. If the cable is good and all these things are ok then the internal sound amp in the monitor might be bad.

After drag and drop coloures to liveview no coloures apper but coloures only appear on background. is that software problem or directx problem ?

This is an issue with your video graphics card. The card may not be able to handle shadowing, which is very popular with 3D programs. You can either, upgrade your video graphics card or see if there is an updated driver for your card by visitng the manufacturer of the computer website.

Hi Everyone, where can I download nVIDIA VANTA - 16 mb AGP display driver. please assist Robert

Hi. For TNT series Nvidia does not provide drivers anymore. So, the best solution is to let your operating system install the driver for you. As i know for sure, Windows XP, Vista and Windows 2000 has the driver for your video card. I suggest don't upgrade your video card with better driver version, because it won't work. Trust me, that happened to me too.

**you need a good driver:
whilst ordinary printer drivers may treat plotters like very large, slow, desktop printers, our driver uses the native vector graphics capabilities of your large format plotter to render CAD and line drawings at maximum speed.

Per-pixel rendering

the message is clear, the problem is clear, the solution is:
- upgrade your videocard to one that does support per pixel rendering,
- simply not to use that option,
- try to find another piece of software that has the same functionality but doesnot require per pixel rendering,
- get in touch again with the card manufacturer and see if per pixel rendering is indeed not available,
- if possible, buy another graphics card that has the option and put them in SLI (if supported) which will improve your graphics for other software as well.

My screen has gone massive and the colours have gone negative. help me?.................. x


That sounds like your video card has gone back into VGA mode, 16 colours and a screen resolution of 640 x 480.

Go into the display settings and try setting the resolution to something like 1024 x 768 and the colour to 32 bit (16 million colours).

If the adjustment cannot be made, it is likely you have a graphics card driver issue. Find out what graphics card or chip you have and download a new driver from the manufacturers website.

Hope this helps.
