Question about Samsung SyncMaster 740N 17" LCD Monitor

Prob with screen resolutions

Just a simple prob i guess with screen resolution on my samsung syncmaster 740n, it seems to be that i dont have the option to set the resolution 1024x768. I only have the options for 800x600, 960x600,1088x612 and 1280x720. I tried choosing other refresh rates but what it did is added lower screen resolution but still no 1024x768 option. Im using Nvidia Geforce 6200LE, tried updating driver still no luck

Hi,

May I suggest working on the monitor itself before tackling the video card.

To my understanding, your monitor came with an installation CD that contain drivers/software for your OS to recognize the LCD correctly. Should you need a downloadable copy, its filename is 20050615115516359_SM740N.exe.

If you have already installed the monitor's drivers and updated your video card's driver as well, and problem persist, you may need to work on the AGP or PCI-E of the motherboard itself. Pls post back motherboard or PC's brand and model.

Hope this be of help. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

How to improove resolution for Monitor SyncMaster 740N?


The maximum resolution for that particular monitor is 1280 x 1024 resolution. If it is set to that resolution you cannot go higher than that on an LCD.

If your resolution is lower and you cannot make it go any higher check your graphics card and see if your crad can go that high. You also may want to check and make sure the proper driver is installed for your graphics card

I want to run a software which requires a screen resolution of 1280 x 768 but my Samsung SyncMaster 740nw supports up to 1280 x 700 screen resolution. Is there anything that I can do? Please guide.


Have you tried adjusting the screen resolution in Control Panel - Display - Settings and moving the slider on Screen resolution?
Normally a monitor such as Samsung LCD would be able to display a higher resolution.
If you cannot adjust the Screen resolution in Display - Settings then it may be that the correct video driver was not installed or is corrupted.
To check if the video diver is OK, go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager and click on Display adapter. Check that your display adapter is OK and working. If you see a yellow ? against the video adapter or a standard VGA adapter was installed then you need to re-install the video driver for your model graphics card.

I have samsung syncmaster 740nw how can i increase screen resolution to 1024x768?


you cannot set the resolution to 1024x768 but instead try 1280x720 or if you have graphics card try to set the resolution using its custom resolution by setting 1280x768.
It will surely solve your problem.

video card may not be capable of that resolution and color depth, check your video cards max resolution and color depth.
I have several lcd monitors that are 1280x 1024 and they do not need drivers to work. the video card must be capable of generating that resolution.
