Desktop larger than screen


I'm using ATI Radeon RV250 9000 series graphic card (AGP) and EIZO FlexScan T563-T CRT monitor on XPSP2 Professional. They are connected via common VGA cable. I have latest as well as some older drivers for both devices but I'm having trouble getting them to work together. My desktop is much larger than screen although I'm using DDC information from monitor. It looks like desktop is magnified a lot. When I override DDC and manually enter display resolution, desktop reduces to fit the screen but than everything gets blurry, with multiple shadow and some strange vertical artifacts. The higher refresh rate I set the worse it gets. There is no forced hardware, no conflict hardware, everything seams to be fine butI 'm obviously having some incompatibility problem with my monitor and graphic card. I've read on several places on the web that other people are also experiencing compatibility problems between Eizo monitors and ATI graphic cards. Both monitor and graphic card have been tested on another computer and they work fine (when not used together). I'm not a beginner but someone who maintains and repairs PC's for more than 20 years so it is definitely not something regarding basic or advanced settings I've overlooked. I've also contacted EIZO technical support and they confirmed that my driver is ok. Same thing with ATI support who suggested that there might be incompatibility issue and suggested replacing hardware.

So, what can it be? Is there some way to solve this problem?

Thank you in advance!

    Graphic card works fine. I've tried it with another monitor and there are no problems at all. This EIZO monitor also works fine on NVIDIA graphic card but not on ATI graphic card. So, system works fine. I've found on the web identical problems experienced by other people. EIZO+ATI≠♥

    Apparently the problem is between Eizo driver and XPSP2. One guy who has same problem on identical configuration said that it happened to him (identical problem) when he upgraded his XPSP1 to XPSP2.

    Silly question, but have you installed the AGP slot drivers for the mainboard?

    It may be defaulting to standard chipset drivers, and it doesn't "know" that it's an AGP.

    Glad to hear you figured it out. Hopefully Eizo or Microsoft will come up with a fix.

Click here to get the latest available drivers for your ATI Radeon X1650Pro.

On the right hand side of the page their is a quick driver download section. With a heading Download drivers.

Select the following:
First field: Desktop Graphics.
Second Field: Radeon X Series.
Third Field: Radeon X1xxx Series.
Fourth Field: Select the operating system that are running this graphics card on.

Now click View results.
Then it may say that you should use the ATI Catalyst 9.3 Driver, however the 10.2 version is available for download. I would try it first just in case it works.
If not you will have to download and install the Catalyst 9.3 Driver.

Take care!

ATI radion 512mb AGP graphics card driver

You can find drivers for your graphics card at the following link:

The category and your description don't quite match up, but if you have a Radeon X1050, then the following applies:

Step 1: Desktop Graphics
Step 2: Radeon X Series
Step 3: Radeon X1xxx Series
Step 4: Your operating system

Change the appropriate steps if that is not your graphics card.

Hello. I am looking for a driver for my vintage Eizo Flexscan T67S CRT monitor for Vista O/S. Is there a source for this kind of driver?

You probably do NOT need any "device-driver" software,
because it is a "plug-and-play" device that Windows will automatically recognize.

Click with the RIGHT mouse-button anywhere on your "wallpaper".
Click Properties.
Click Settings.
Click Advanced.
Click Monitor.
Click Properties.

Your monitor should be listed.

The ATI 7000 graphics cards are much better than the SIS 315 ones.

Video card upgrade needed.

Your Sony has an integrated video card which can't be upgraded. It does have an AGP slot where you can install a video card, though. If you tried to download the latest drivers for this onboard card and that hasn't worked, then a new VGA card is in orde. These are getting hard to come by, as the standard is now PCI-E graphics.
I would look for something like an ATI Radeon 9600 with 128 MB RAM if you want decent performance.

Ati radeon 9600 video card

what you have the ATI card hooked up can you see the boot screen? If you can see that you might want to try going into safe mode and making sure your graphics settings aren't set beyond the capability of your monitor. If you can't see the boot screen then your card might be dead.
