Re: cannot change resolutions.(monitor)

This could be caused by a variety of problems:

1. The video/graphic card does not support that resolution because:

a. it does not have sufficient display memory (at least 2 or 4 megabytes is requiered, if you don't have this amount buy a new video card)

b. the video card driver has not been installed properly or is corrupted (reinstall the video driver)

2. The monitor does not support 1024x768 resolution

Change your resolution, follow this procedure:

Please provide your entire system specifications, including the monitor.

Check you refresh rate. If you were using a lower resolution and increased your refresh rate, you may currently be set at a refresh rate that will not allow the 1024x768 resolution. Reduce your refresh rate first, then try.

Monitor work well on starting, but entering into any games, its turn black and the power light is on. Computer has nothing problems with other monitors.

The games try to start a display mode (resolution) with which the monitor is not compatible. Some monitors are very tolerant and try to display whatever they are hit with, even if the picture is poor, at least you have an option to change the resolution to a different one. Some however are very picky and just go into standby if they are fed with signal that's not optimum.

You have to find out which display modes your monitor does support and then try and configure the games to use one of those supported resolutions. If you can borrow a more tolerant monitor you could attach it temporarily, open each game and adjust the configuration to satisfy your whimsical monitor, and then reconnect it.

Please come back and leave a rating/testimonial if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

"Not Optimum Mode","Recommanded Mode 1280

FIXED : Before you start your legacy game, software where the "Recommanded Mode 1280 x 1024 60Hz" keeps showing, change your display FROM VIDEO CARD DISPLAY control application to 1024x768 or your choice.

My Syncmaster 2233 had same problem of "Not optimum mode" box coming on whenever I started any old game like Age of Empires etc. It got fixed by selecting FROM DISPLAY CARD DRIVER CONTROL UTILITY's (mine from Catalyst Control Center) >Set desktop area to > 1024 x 768 in my case BEFORE STARTING old application/game. Switch back to your normal resolution after you are done with this application.

Hope this helps.

I have problem in my lg lcd monitor when start computer windows loading then il say out of range 53.5Hz/85Hz. i don't know how to solve that problem.

Sounds like the resolution is set to high which is why that message would come up. When you turn on your computer, keep pressing the F8 button. It will bring you to a menu. Choose "Safe Mode" and press enter. When you get into windows go into the display settings in the control panel. Then go ahead and set the resolution to 640X480. After you do that go ahead and restart the computer and let it boot up normally. That message should go away and once you get back into windows you'll have icons that look bigger then normal. At that point change the resolution to 800X600, if it takes that then try 1024X768 if you want to.

If after you are in safe mode and change the resolution and that error message comes up then you'll need to download the video drivers for your computer and reinstall them.

My monitor will not stay on, it comes on and the display shows RGB3 and then it shut off I have a PR42300 42"plazma monitor

Its not receiving a signal from the video card or the resolution is out of range for the monitor.
assuming you have the correct PC input selected on your monitor and not on scart or RGB?
Plug your PC into another monitor, see if that gets a gignal, if so then ists most likely one of the other two causes, and you should reduce the machines resolution or refresh rate down to 1024x768 AND 60hz
try again on you plasma, then take it back up to a comfortable resolution and refresh. if it dissapears again, wait it should revert back to previous setting if you do not confirm you can read the screen ok.

if it doesnt come on on another monitor, check you dont have two video cards. and use the other socket.

How do I change my computer monitor to 1680 x 1050?

First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig. below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.


The areas worth noting are: google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

Color Quality
This pull down box will contain the current colour options available, again this will depend on your grahics card and monitor, for best results select the highest option available.
Changing the ResolutionTo change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box, if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

When you have finished simply close the Display properties box.

I have now have a "video mode not supported" message on my L705 Hyndai monitor screen which came up right after I tried to change the resolution on my windows xp display. I can't get the monitor to show...

First connect you're monitor on to another system if possible. This will only make sure you're monitor is still working ok.
You're system needs to be shut down. (Keep you're monitor connected to you're system).
Than start it up and press the F5 key on you're keyboard every 2 seconds. This will bring up a screen that looks just like the one below;


Choose Safe mode from the list. Once you are in windows safe mode open windows control panel than open the display icon. Change the settings to where they were before you made changes. Chances are you need to lower the refresh rate and the resolution. Than save and exit the display properties. Close control panel. Cross you're finger and re-start you're system. If this doesn't work you'll have no choice but to hook up a much better monitor to you're system so you can change the display settings.

Resolution 16-10

Your resolution is based on your video cards capabilities. If your still using the original on-board, integrated video I doubt if you'll be able to reach such resolution. Open control panel, open Display. Click the Settings Tab. You will notice Screen resolution & there is a slide bar. Sliding the bar to More will increase the resolution. You'll see what the max is for your video card. As to your LCD monitor it's max resolution is capable of reaching 1680x1050. Keep in mind the word " capable ".
If you need that kind of resoluton you'll need to find a AGP video card that can go that high.
Please vote.....
