Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

My new Samsung 2053BW monitor keeps giving me warning messages about setting the correct resolution (1680 x 1050: 60Hz) but when I go to control panel to reset the resolution I don't get the suggested resolution as an option, just 1600x1200 or 1600x1000, etc). I am using a Dell Dimension 4600 running WinXP with a GeForce FX5200 video card. Also, the font under the desktop icons now looks blurry and is difficult to read.

If a cd came with the monitor use it, if not, download the driver update for monitor and VC.

Have you tried uninstalling the graphics driver entirely and then rebooting? Could be a corrupted driver.

My Samsung monitor displays the message "Not optimum mode; recommended mode 1920x1080 60 hertz - Analog" - whenever I try to boot in a Safe Mode (WinXP). It works fine in a normal mode as well as in VGA...


  1. Navigate to the Control Panel in Microsoft Windows by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel window, open Display.
    Note: Depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the Display icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that says Switch to Classic View.
  3. In the Display Properties window, click on the Settings tab.
  4. Toward the bottom of this window, click on the Advanced button.
  5. In the resulting window, which may or may not be tittled Plug and Play Monitor..., click on the Monitor tab.
  6. Locate the Screen refresh rate drop down box in the middle of the window. Under most circumstances, the best choice is the highest rate available. Depending on your issue though, the rate may need to be lowered.
    Note: It is always recommended to keep the Hide modes that this monitor cannot display checkbox checked. Choosing refresh rates outside this range could damage hardware.
  7. Click the OK or Apply button to confirm the changes. If prompted, follow any additional on screen directions.

How do I change the display resolution on the control panel ABOVE the maxed out resolution shown so I can use a 17' screen which requires 1280x10xx? When I try to use any 17" monitor, a message comes...


Hi,

On a 17ins monitor the best resolution is 1024x768 regardless of whether it tells you a different "recommended" display resolution.

Just ignore any warning it gives you and it should work very well with the resolution i've told you, just use the slider to select the 1024x768.



Regards.

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.


It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

Showing message out of range


Your monitor settings within windows are set too high for the monitor to display... When computer first boots.. be ready and press the F8 key...
Enter safe mode.. Reset the display properties in control panel to 800 by 600 for a start. Setting the resolution too high past the monitors ability will give you that message.. Most monitors are able to display 1024 by 768 just fine.. Out of range.. means the display settings within windows are out of the monitors range of ability to display the screen resolution you have set... Good luck!!

Dell Desktop DX270 doesn't work with LG w2052TQ monitor...


A Dell Optiplex GX270 can have either on on-board VGA integrated graphics controller or an expansion graphics controller. If an expansion card is installed, the onboard graphics is disabled.

So first, ensure that the VGA cable is connected to the correct graphics connection (If there is an expansion slot with a video connector, ten you must use that connection)

If connected to the correct port on the system, next ensure that the input select for the monitor is either set to autoselect or ANALOG

Last ensure that the display resolution of the graphics adapter will support the new monitor.

NO SIGNAL What do I do?


These messages are normal when the computer truly goes into suspend mode or loses the video signal (such as when the computer is suddenly turned off).
If the monitor displays any of these messages when the computer should be displaying video , do the following items until an image from the computer appears:

1.
Ensure the computer is really sending a video signal. To bring the computer out of suspend mode: move the mouse, press the spacebar, and press the suspend button on the keyboard twice (the suspend button has an icon that looks like a quarter moon).
2.
Ensure the video cable is connected (and connected to the correct video port).
3.
If you are trying to view video from a set-top box, DVD player or similar device, use its menu system to set the proper video output channel so that it matches the video connection are using. For example, if the monitor is connected to a satellite receiver via a second HDMI connection on the back of the receiver, select HDMI-2 (or similar) using the remote control for the receiver.
4.
Turn off the monitor using the monitor's power button and then restart the monitor.
5.
Cycle the power on the monitor as follows:
1.
Turn off the monitor. The power light on the monitor should be off. Leave the computer turned on.
2.
Unplug the power cord.
3.
Wait 5 seconds.
4.
Plug in the power cord.
5.
Press the power button on the monitor to turn on the monitor.
One of two things happens:
1.
The image from the computer displays on the monitor and you can use the computer again. This indicates that the monitor was unable to detect that the computer had awakened from suspend mode. Turn the monitor off when it is not being used or disable suspend mode. For some computers, updating the BIOS corrects these types of suspend problems.
2.
The power light on the monitor comes on but the screen displays one of the messages again. The monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer that it can detect and use. Continue using these steps to adjust the Windows display resolution to the Monitor's native (default) resolution.
6.
Adjust the Windows display resolution to a setting that is compatible with the monitor:
NOTE: The native resolution setting for your model of monitor can be found in the Monitor User Guide, the monitor's product packaging, and product specifications.
1.
Restart the computer and press F8 repeatedly after the first logo screen.
2.
Select Safe Mode .
3.
Windows should open showing a Windows desktop with lower resolution and fewer colors.
4.
In Windows Vista, click Start , Control Panel , and click Adjust Screen Resolution in Appearance and Personalization.
In Windows XP, click Start , Settings , Control Panel and then double-click the Display icon and select the Settings tab.
5.
Move the slider bar until the native resolution for the monitor is set, click OK and restart the computer.
6.
If the native resolution is not available from the slider bar, click Advanced Settings , click List All Modes (from the Adapter tab), select the resolution, and click OK .
If the native resolution setting is not available as a selection in Windows, you can temporarily use 1024 x 768 to complete these steps. However, you should update the graphics driver on the computer. Updating the graphics driver can provide more display resolutions to Windows; possibly including the native display resolution for the monitor.

Check for nVidia video driver updates at nVidia Home Page (in English).
*
Check for ATI video driver updates at ATI Home Page (in English).
*
Check for S3 video driver updates at S3 Graphics Home Page (in English).
*
Check for Intel video support and downloads, Intel Downloads (in English).
*
If you own an HP or Compaq computer, HP hosts video drivers and some video driver updates at the HP Software and Drivers site (in English)
7.
Connect the monitor to another computer that you know is working to determine if the monitor should be serviced or replaced:
*
If the monitor displays an image from another computer, you know that the monitor works. Troubleshoot the video connection and graphics adapter on the computer.
*
If the monitor remain blank when connected to another computer, the monitor signal processing hardware may be bad. The monitor should be repaired or replaced.

Resolution


You could check your DPI setting in the display, being a large monitor your DPI setting shoul be up around the 75 - 85 Hertz.
To access this
Control Panel --> Display --> Settings --> Advanced --> Monitor and then click the drop down box and see what the DPI is set to and keep trying the different options until it is clear.
Hope this helps.
