Usually, if there is a selector switch to match electrical requirements of a monitor or computer to that which may be available in the home, it is for voltage or voltage AND frequency. Seldom is there are selector for frequency only (I've yet to see one anyway).

The selector switch it typically found near where the AC mains power cord enters the enclosure. This can be on the monitor itself - or in the case of a monitor that uses a low voltage cable and connector connected to a power adapter, it would be located on the power adapter instead. Sometimes, these devices automatically detect and switch to match the power being supplied to it. The device should clearly indicate that it will work a wide range of voltages - do not assume it will if it does not specifically indicate that it will.

The selector above is set to 230 volts.

Set the selector switch BEFORE connecting to the power outlet. Most times, the selector switch has the voltage indicated on the slide. The switch will allow the user to choose 110-120 or 220-240 volts. The 110/120 selection is likely to be the 60 Hz variety and the 220/240 selection is likely to be 50 Hz.

If you are unable to locate such a switch, the device is not intended to be changed by the user - and there is likely no "easy way" for the user to change it.

Please rate this reply - good luck!

    I misunderstood your question - it appears you were looking for SCREEN REFRESH FREQUENCY adjustments. Disregard this reply as it deals with power supply frequency and voltage adjustments instead. Good luck.

Go to the display properties through the control panel, or right-click on the Windows Desktop, then click Properties. Go to the Settings tab, then click the Advanced button. On the next screen, click the Monitor tab, then you can find the section to change the hertz.

The monitor will swap to what you set it to.

I assume that you will have to go into safe mode. press f8
when starting your computer.

in windows go into control panel
select classic view
display properties in xp / Personalization in vista
settings in xp / display settings in vista
advanced
then click the monitor tab
and change the mode 60hz is usually a safe bet.

Tell me what is samsung syncmaster 794 default setting


The maximum resolution supported is 1280 x 1024 pixels at 65 Hz refresh rate, while the recommended resolution stands at 1024 x 768 pixels at 85 Hz. However, the maximum usable resolution is 1152 x 864 pixels at 75 Hz. Maximum usable resolution signifies the maximum resolution supported by a monitor at a refresh rate of 75 Hz or better. Though 85 Hz is an ideal refresh rate, 75 Hz is the lower limit. Any refresh rate, lower than 75 Hz, will give a flickered output and can cause some serious eye damage after prolonged usage...i hope this helps.

Unable to get 1024 x 768 resolution on philips 105e


Hello, that resolution should be available but only at a refresh rate of 60hz as per the specs pasted below. Can you see this resolution setting on your graphics card? If not then perhaps you need to check you have the latest driver for your graphics card and just make sure that your graphics card does support that setting anyway.

Display

Samsung sync master 510 monitor display problem


It may be that the LCD monitor will not display all screen resolutions so you may need to change your resolution to match the desired resolution and refresh rate of the LCD. In your case the computer should be outputting:

1024x768 pixels
60 Hz

You can change these settings by right clicking on the desktop and clicking properties and they're under the settings tab. Change the screen resolution by moving the slider to the recommended setting (1024x768)

and

under the advanced button click the "monitor" tab - make sure the screen refresh rate is set to 60 hertz (60 hz)

No clear picture just wavy lines and error message


The spec sheet I found says your monitor should be able to display 1280 x 1024, 720 x 350, 720 x 400 and four other resolutions in the 640 x .... range which are pretty useless. Try setting ti to 1280 x 1024 at 16 million colors @ 60 Hz and let us know what happens.
