Video card may not be capable of that resolution and color depth, check your video cards max resolution and color depth.
I have several lcd monitors that are 1280x 1024 and they do not need drivers to work. the video card must be capable of generating that resolution.

Not optimum mode


This means that your resolution (the amount of pixels) is not the same as your monitor's recommended setting.

The easiest way to fix this is to go into your display settings (right click your desktop and, if XP: Properties->Settings or if Vista/7: Screen Resolution) and drag the slider all the way to the right (XP) or top (Vista/7).

If the highest setting makes your screen go blank for more than 5 seconds, press Esc and try the next setting down. Do this until your monitor correctly displays the highest setting allowed.

QUESTION: Monitor says:


Reboot your computer and press the F8 key right before you see the XP loading splash screen. You should get a menu that lists things like safe mode and vga mode. Select the vga mode option and hit enter twice. This will boot windows into 640x480 resolution and will allow you to change the resolution back to 1024x768 at 60hz

Out of range message


This is caused by a resolution and/or refresh frequency setting in your computer's display properties that exceeds the values supported by the monitor.
Find out the optimum (native) resolution of your monitor (in case of AMV 17V5 it will be 1280x1024 pixels), and supported refresh frequency (usually 60Hz for LCD monitors), and set your display properties to these values.

Monitor problem: not optimum mode recommended mode: 1280x1024 60 hz ? cannot click on screen. Samsung model 913T s


It appears your display adapter is set to a different refresh frequency or resolution,
either accidentally or due to some power glitch.
If you cannot set the resolution because this message is preventing you from getting to the
display settings window, try rebooting your PC in Safe Mode. It'll take a while longer
than usual, but when you're finally running, try setting your display adapter to the
1280x1024 60Hz settings. This is available under "Advanced->Adapter->List all modes".
To reboot in safe mode, try pressing the PF8 keys repeatedly after the POST messages
disappear just after turning the power on. This only works if this key is enabled to
operate from the BIOS settings.
To get to the BIOS setup, Look at the first messages displayed on your screen indicating what key to press. It's usually the Delete or PF2 key, but different BIOS manufacturers use different keys.
Once inside the BIOS setup, find the way to enable the PF8, PF9, PF10, keys. Save your
settings and reboot.
Now you may try PF8 again to go to Safe Mode.
Good Luck!

Not optimum mode


This means your computer windows resolution is not display in the correct resolution which your samsung LCD will take.

What you need to do it boot the computer in safe mode. (pressing F8 at start up and select safe mode) This should bring the windows to start up in the generic 800x600 resolution.

Once you are able to see the display in safe mode, go onto the display properties and change the resolution.
* right click on desktop -> properties -> settings

Screen blank


Sounds like its simply going into power save mode. Does your screen come back on when you move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard? Is the computer still on? Check your power options in control panel.
