Question about Samsung SyncMaster 913N 19" LCD Monitor

4 Answers

Samsung SyncMaster 931B

Out of the blue, when I turn on my system I now get the message box "Not Optimum Mode. Recommended Mode 1280x1024 60Hz". I cannot get beyond this...nothing else will display. Until now it's been working fine.

I'm running Win2k. Is my driver corrupted? I can't make any adjustments because I don't get a screen with which to do this.

I tried both suggestions above and neither worked. 1) Hitting the monitor buttons as stated only got me a "digital" message and then the monitor went black as usual. Never got to any menu options. 2) Going into Safe Mode and changing the monitor settings or downloading/installing the correct driver didn't stick once you went back to the normal startup.

I didn't have another monitor handy to swap out so I had to be a little more creative. The only solution that worked for me is re-booting (F8 during startup) into the mode "Enable VGA Mode". This allowed me to go into the normal desktop with a screen resolution of 800x600. I went online, found the driver, downloaded it to the desktop. Deleted the video driver (Device Manager), installed the downloaded version, rebooted and....no problems.
I have Windows XP. Hope I've helped someone today. :)

Press the 'Source' button on the bottom edge of the monitor. Then press the 'Menu' button to make the "Not Optimum Mode" message go away temporarily. Then configure the monitor refresh rate to 60 Hz, and apply. (If the message comes back on before you get the refresh rate set to 60 Hz, just repeat the Source/Menu again.) Once set to 60 Hz, the messge should not come back, even if you don't use the 'recommended' screen resolution.

Sounds like you need to temporarily use another monitor to reconfigure your display settings to 1280x1024 at 60hz. What's happened is somehow your computer was set to an incorrect screen resolution or refresh rate and the monitor is telling you that it's not going to display anything until you correct it. The problem is that you can't see your computer to fix the display settings.

You should be able to boot into safe mode in windows XP, that will allow you to use your computer (keep hitting F8 on startup), but you'll need to change your display settings on the normal boot to get your monitor working again, which the best way to do that is to temporarily use another monitor.

Not optimum mode recommended mode 1280x1024 60hz syncmaster 712 n pop up occasionly I have to shut down computer


Your video card and computer memory may not be sufficient to run in the recommended "optimum performance mode" that Samsung and Windows both suggest. Please try setting your display setting at a lower resolution such as 1080 x 760 which is still quite excellent. Otherwise you may need to buy a better video card or increase system memory to run the higher mode graphics.
Good Luck!

You could try pressing the auto adjust button (simply says 'Auto'), and see if that changes anything...don't know if this will work, but it is a start.
