Question about BenQ FP72G+ 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Malfunctioning monitor (BenQ)

The computer was playing a high resolution game with normal graphics (no problems had occured before) and the monitor crashed leaving the harddrive functioning while the monitor screen itself would not turn on properly. the screen with momentarily be active then will crash with 1-2 sec. the monitor is past its warranty with fairly constant use (2-3 yrs). i have tried all the non-user interface tecniques avaliable to me such as a total comp. reset, quick restart, 24 hr cooldown, etc..... the computer is designed to work in sychronisation with the harddrive so there are no compatabilty problems which should occur. any advice in which you could offer would be helpful! (through administrative system link it is shown that the graphics card and the frames per sec and working properly)

Re: malfunctioning monitor (BenQ)

Hi, first run the system in safe mode, if that works than u will have to look in for driver problems/settings, sometimes uninstalling the monitor & display driver then reinstalling it back will change the settings to default, try it, let me know

Have a Benq GW2750 LED screen and it is say "out of range" how do I resolve this?

This problem is normally due to incorrect resolution settings.
Change resolution to 1024><768 and try or connect this monitor to another cpu or laptop to confirm cause.
If same problem occurs on a known OK CPU then mainboard in the monitor could be defective but chances are rare.Also this screen should be under warranty.

My suggestion is to lower your resolution. In high intensity graphic type games it may be just a bit too much for your monitor to handle

I hope this helps you out.

install an AGP card in the AGP slot (accelerated graphics port) then you can see high resolution also you can play '3D games 'and look 'HD video' but internal display card of the 'motherboard 'does not support the high resolution because of the insufficient memory . use ' 8X AGP card' for the better result .

When I open game the monitor become black and show: Analogique shortcut 53.6 Khz/85 hz

Your resolution or screen refresh rate sounds like it is too high.

Try dropping your resolution to 1024 x 768 and see if the issue persists.

If it does then perhaps your game is trying to force you into a higher resolution output and faster screen refresh rate than your graphics card or your screen can handle.

Assuming that the graphic output is fine when your not playing this game and just using windows?

Cannot go over 1600x1200 resolution

did you get info with the graphics card? not all can go high some are lower resolution for reasons.
and be aware that monitors can not go up in resolution forever they have a max limit so based on frequency you are using you may only get 1600 x 1200 1650 x 1080 is as high as this card will go it is listed on the side bar here under editors choice.
based on monitors freq settings you may need to adjust that to get to the max

BenQ FP591 15" monitor decides to die

Strange that both should show the same symptoms don't you think? Have you changed anything computer wise? Graphics card or resolution? Screeching noise is a puzzle too. How are they powered - internally or via a separate power supply?
