Question about Computer Monitors

1 Answer

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.

Here is the link to Eizo's driver page.
This issue may not be the monitor but your video card. If the card will not support the driver you can't force it to use it.

I have sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card. i have aoc 912sw+ 19 inch lcd monitor. how to connect hdmi port of graphics card with monitor?

the HDMI port is for connecting video and sound to a home theatre / surround sound system. I understand that this monitor only has a VGA connector.

The sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card has the following ports on the back to connect to a display: DVI (white), VGA (blue) and DisplayPort (the thin slot in the middle). You can use an ordinary VGA cable to connect the card to your monitor.

Unfortunately you cannot connect this card directly to your monitor using the DisplayPort.

Hope this helps

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.

Dell 1702FP 17" shows nothing after Radeon HD 2600 put in.

Is the card plugged into the (PCI/AGP) slot correctly? Did you disable the onboard video in the bios? Also be sure to check in windows device manager and check for the graphics card to appear there.
