Tell me what is samsung syncmaster 794 default setting

The maximum resolution supported is 1280 x 1024 pixels at 65 Hz refresh rate, while the recommended resolution stands at 1024 x 768 pixels at 85 Hz. However, the maximum usable resolution is 1152 x 864 pixels at 75 Hz. Maximum usable resolution signifies the maximum resolution supported by a monitor at a refresh rate of 75 Hz or better. Though 85 Hz is an ideal refresh rate, 75 Hz is the lower limit. Any refresh rate, lower than 75 Hz, will give a flickered output and can cause some serious eye damage after prolonged usage...i hope this helps.

Screen goes blank after POST

If this problem occurs, it's usually after a monitor upgrade from CRT to LCD.

You're booting your computer, everything looks fine. The POST completes, Windows is starting up, then... Black screen.

You know both the card and monitor worked during the POST, so they must be functioning. So what changed?

Chances are the 'Refresh Rate' is set too high for the replacement monitor.

Put the old monitor back on and reboot.
  • Right Click the Desktop
  • Click Properties
  • Click Settings
  • Click Advanced
  • Click Monitor
  • Lower the refresh rate or set at optimal
  • Check the box 'Hide refresh rates this monitor can't display'
Shutdown, Switch back and try it now.

Good luck

My samsung samtron 96b is suppose to have 160hz but i can only get 85hz, ive already format my pc from xp to seven and the problem presists.

the samtron 96b has a maximum refresh rate of 85hz. You may be thinking of the bandwidth, which is in the 100+hz range

F the "Hz?" In a rectangle appeared on the dark screen, what does this mean?

This refers to the "Hertz" which is the refresh rate of the monitor. You should refer to the manual and look under refresh. If not, you can select the different settings until satisfactory. A lower number is easier for the video card to handle, higher setting require more work for the card.

After Windows has started and the setup screens show, my Kogi monitor says "out of range" and the screen goes black. How can I fix this?

Set the resolution lower.

It is telling you that the resolution you want is beyond its normal operating range.

just drop it to lets say 800 x 600
Then bump it up one resolution at a time until you get the message again, then drop it back one.

Running monitors above the acceptable range can drastically shorten their lifespan.

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.

Monitor into TV

The monitor may not be compatible with your TV box. Basically if the monitor can't handle the refresh rate or resolution a blank screen like this will result. There should be a way to change the refresh rate or a standard refresh rate listed in the manual. What brand/,model of tv box is it?

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.

TFT Problem

This LCD can work at 75 Hz refresh rate, btw much more healthy for your eyes, you can change it accessing Control Panel -> Display -> settings -> Advanced -> Monitor -> Screen Refresh Rate -> select 75 Hz.
