Question about ASUS P4S800-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Video problem Dear experts: I have an old 15" monitor "Samsung Sincmaster3" and by error I had changed the monitor resolution from 800x600 to a higher one and because of that when entering Xp desktop it is impossible to me to see properly and I can change back the resolution directly from the panel control. Also I' ve tried entering in the "bios set up" but there isn't any resolutions options in there. How can I do to go back to the correct 800x600 resolution? Thanks in advance, Claudio (from Argentina)

I had this same problem. What worked for me was going into safe mode, and in there I removed the video card from the device manager. When I restarted normally & windows re-installed it I was set back to the 800 X 600 which seems to be the default.

If that does not work I guess you could fall back to the old standby of delete windows & reinstall. While not my 1st choice it would fix the problem. Or another thought is take the machine to someone that has a better monitor, load into windows set it back to 800 X 600 & shut down. Back home it should be set again.

How to increase screen resolution from 800x600 to 1366x768


You need to get the correct video drivers for your Graphics card or on-board graphics chip. Just go to the support site of the graphics card or if it's on-board video go to the support site of the motherboard to get the proper drivers. Once the correct drivers are installed, you will be able to increase the resolution.

I have problem in my lg lcd monitor when start computer windows loading then il say out of range 53.5Hz/85Hz. i don't know how to solve that problem.


Sounds like the resolution is set to high which is why that message would come up. When you turn on your computer, keep pressing the F8 button. It will bring you to a menu. Choose "Safe Mode" and press enter. When you get into windows go into the display settings in the control panel. Then go ahead and set the resolution to 640X480. After you do that go ahead and restart the computer and let it boot up normally. That message should go away and once you get back into windows you'll have icons that look bigger then normal. At that point change the resolution to 800X600, if it takes that then try 1024X768 if you want to.

If after you are in safe mode and change the resolution and that error message comes up then you'll need to download the video drivers for your computer and reinstall them.

D-sub out of range 53.6 kHz / 85 hz


the problem could be said to be with either your motherboard or your monitor. Your motherboard is giving out at signal faster than your monitor can handle. If order to fix this you will need to use the monitor you were using earlier and change the resolution to 800x600 (varies by operating system, in windows you can generally right click the desktop and click properties and change the resolution under the rightmost tab on the dialogue)
Then connect it to the monitor you are trying to use and use the recommended resolution.

How do I change my computer monitor to 1680 x 1050?


First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig. below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

xp-screen-resolution-1.gif

The areas worth noting are: google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

Color Quality
This pull down box will contain the current colour options available, again this will depend on your grahics card and monitor, for best results select the highest option available.
Changing the ResolutionTo change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box, if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

When you have finished simply close the Display properties box.

Monitor does not work when connected to desktop . if i plug it into a laptop it works


Most likely the display resolution set in the desktop is unsupported. Boot in Safe Mode and change it to something that will surely be supported like 800x600. Next boot normally and try to increase it step by step till you reach what you want - if by accident you select another unsupported resolution and the screen goes black just wait 15 seconds an the pc will revert to the old setting.

I have now have a "video mode not supported" message on my L705 Hyndai monitor screen which came up right after I tried to change the resolution on my windows xp display. I can't get the monitor to show...


First connect you're monitor on to another system if possible. This will only make sure you're monitor is still working ok.
You're system needs to be shut down. (Keep you're monitor connected to you're system).
Than start it up and press the F5 key on you're keyboard every 2 seconds. This will bring up a screen that looks just like the one below;

9492963.jpg

Choose Safe mode from the list. Once you are in windows safe mode open windows control panel than open the display icon. Change the settings to where they were before you made changes. Chances are you need to lower the refresh rate and the resolution. Than save and exit the display properties. Close control panel. Cross you're finger and re-start you're system. If this doesn't work you'll have no choice but to hook up a much better monitor to you're system so you can change the display settings.

Cheers'

Why can't my computer change screen resolution


The resolution is dependant on the VGA card
(speed and on board ram) if u are using one.If u are using a video card have u loaded the drivers.
If u are using the mother board video check the specs you may need to allocate more ram to the video via the cmos.
Check the manufactures specs on the motherboard and or video card u may need to upgrade to a newer agp or pci video card.

How to adjust LCD wide monitor to a higher


This error is typical of an incorrect video driver has been installed.
To check the installed video driver go to Control Panel - Display - Settings tab - Advance button - Adapter tab. This shows the adapter/driver. If it shows VGA graphics card or not the model of your graphics card then you need to download the correct graphic/video driver and install it. You will then able to configure the display at a higher resolution and at the highest color bit (ie 32 bit if there is sufficient video RAM installed).

Problem in install winxp


Your upgrade options
If you want to upgrade your system to Windows XP, the first thing you need to do is verify that it meets the system requirements for the newer operating system.
You will need:
  • Windows 98 or later version of Microsoft Windows operating system.
  • At least a 233Mhz processor. Any manufacturer (AMD, Intel, IBM, VIA, etc.) will do.
  • At least 128MB of system memory.
  • 1.5 Gigabytes of free hard drive space (note that you should have at least 3 gigabytes if you want to do any meaningful work with your system after the upgrade).
  • A CD-Rom or CD/RW drive.
  • Mouse and keyboard (either USB or PS/2).
  • A video adaptor and monitor capable of displaying 800x600 resolution. If you are not sure about this, change the resolution within Windows 98 by right clicking on an empty area of the desktop and selecting 'properties' then going to the 'settings' tab. The resolution slider is at the bottom left. Set it to '800x600' and click 'apply.' If your screen is still legible, you are fine. If the 800x600 option is unavailable, you may need to upgrade your video adaptor before upgrading Windows.
Note that if the screen becomes scrambled, blank or unreadable, you will probably need a new monitor as your current one cannot handle the required resolution. If your system meets the minimum requirements for Windows XP, it's time to find out which version of the operating system you can upgrade to.
