Ok, try another setting say 1024x768, 800x600 & see if that helps, what this means is for whatever reason "Windows" thinks that the current screen settings, aren't the best, for what is being "Run".

Your recommend guys did not solved the problem!
I use xp sp3 1024/768, that works fine. But I'm playing quake4 with 1280/1024 res and, after restart that idiot message "recommended 1280/1024" resolution is appearing. Must take off all the cables from monitor to make it works. Also, when I tried to install Linux, again "recommended 1280/1024" message is annoying me. What to do?

SOURCE: Synchmaster 913

Hello. That message appears when the video signal from the computer exceeds the monitor's ability to display it. If the sync is set too high(i.e. max sync on the monitor is 60 Hertz at that resolution), you will get that message. Check the video settings in control panel--("appearance and themes" in XP), go to the "advanced" tab and look at the refresh rate. Most computer video cards are able to far exceed a monitor's display ability. Don't exceed 60 Hertz--check the users guide for specs--the lower resolutions can have higher refresh rates(useful in games) Sometimes, a little lower video quality can yield a big performance difference in the display because the screen can update itself faster. (I use a radio control flight simulator pgm that is heavy on video ability).---Hope I was of assistance!---Rick

Make sure you also set the refresh frequency to 60Hz as suggested. You don't specify what system are you using, but it can generally be found in advanced display preferences under Monitor.

"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.

Not optimum mode


This means that your resolution (the amount of pixels) is not the same as your monitor's recommended setting.

The easiest way to fix this is to go into your display settings (right click your desktop and, if XP: Properties->Settings or if Vista/7: Screen Resolution) and drag the slider all the way to the right (XP) or top (Vista/7).

If the highest setting makes your screen go blank for more than 5 seconds, press Esc and try the next setting down. Do this until your monitor correctly displays the highest setting allowed.

Monitor 2492hm - error message: "Not Optimum Mode, Recommended Mode: 1920 X 1080 @ 60 hertz". Support from Samsung very poor - their answer is '...change to optimum frequency'. How and where do I do this -...


To term in the computer is the refresh rate of the monitor. Depending on the operating system it is done a couple different ways.

Right mouse click on the desktop and choose properties or personalize (depending on your OS). In windows xp click on the last tab to change the resolution. Click on apply then click on advanced, the monitor tab, to change the refresh rate.

In Vista, click on Display Settings to be able to do the above.

I have an error message on my screen which ios moving around. It says - 'not optimum mode. Recommended mode : 1280 x1024 60Hz'.


Sounds like you have an LCD monitor. LCD monitors look best in their native resolution. Yours must be 1280x1024. You need to (assuming this is a Windows PC) right click on the desktop and choose Personalize, Display Settings (Vista) or Properties, Settings (XP or older). Set the slider to 1280x1024. It'll confirm the change and then the message should never reappear.

NOT OPTIMUM MODE


Solder a 50 ohm precision resistor between pins 5 and 6 of the Novatek NT68F63LG

I had this same problem on 3 Samsung 710N displays and this fixed the problem.

I have read others have also been successful but the value of theresistor was slightly different in some cases. I would start with 50ohms as that seems to be a common value fixing most displays.

Here is the reference URL to the ORIGINAL person that solved the problem.
