New Samsung 245/bw monitor w/native resolution of 1920x1200

Hi,
I have a Toshiba M35-S320 laptop with the Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 video card with a single VGA monitor connection..
The Samsung monitor has both VGA also called D-Sub? and a DVI port. The native mode resolution for it is 1920x1200.
My problem is that I can not raise the resolution passed 1600x1200. The result is that I have about 2 inches of unusable screen on each side of the monitor. Is there any way for me to gain full access to the entire screen short of buying a new laptop. I was told that I could not change/upgrade the video card in the laptop to get the screen resolution I need.

Your help would be greatly appreciated,

Doug

    I forgot to say that the Samsung 245/bw is a 24 inch LCD and that the laptop is running XP. The frequency of the video card is already 60hz and I have not change it. When I go into the Display option within the Control Panel the max I can boost the resolution to is 1600x1200. I did some digging and apparently the video card will support two monitors and when I select the Samsung 245/BW it allows me to pick a higher resolution of 1920x1448 just not 1920x1200.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks for trying! According to the documentation for the monitor it's native mode is 1920x1200. I am not arbitrarily picking this resolution. The other issue I stated earlier is that I am not getting the use of the full screen. There is approximately 2 inches of screen to the right and to the left that I cannot access. It is black. I am not talking about the plastic border around the screen but the actual screen itself. The screen is 24 inches wide but the picture is only 22 inches wide. My goal is to find out if it is a physical restriction of the video/graphics card or some switch that I did not set correctly.

    Regards,

    Doug

Ensure that your video setting is at 60hz when at 1920x1200. According to the specs of your monitor, the freq from the video card might be set to something higher.

I need driver for card


If you visit the NVIDIA web site, you will find a driver, if there is one available for the operating system you are using.
NVIDIA has a small program that you can download and run on your PC. It will examine the graphics card and operating system of your computer and suggest the proper driver program to download.

Compaq fs740 text too faint and fuzzy to read well


Firstly you need to switch to the monitor's optimal resolution of 1024x768 @ 85Hz and before anyone posts anything about resolution 1024x768 @ 85Hz is the optimum not the maximum. To change to this resolution: Assuming you are using Windows XP click with the right mouse button an an empty part of the desktop and select Properties (or click Start, then click Control Panel then click Display), on the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider bar until it says 1024x768 and then click Apply. Also in Display settings you'll find an advanced button, in the advanced panel you'll see the option to adjust the refresh rate, try adjusting this to 85Hz. Now press the Menu Button on the front of the monitor and press + of - until you see an option called "Degauss" and press the select button on the front of the monitor, your screen will do a disturbing jump and flicker accompanied by a metallic thud, this is normal. If this doesn't help message back.

My Viewsonic VG2230wm refuses to use its native resolution of 1680 x 1050. Whenever I select this resolution, it registers on the computer display settings, but when I check on the monitor display panel...


You will need to adjust your monitor settings in the NVidia control panel. You can get to this by right clicking somewhere in a blank spot on your desktop and then selecting it from the menu. You will want to go into the Display section. If you aren't able to see that section, change from "Standard" to "Advanced" settings at the top of the screen.

My syncmaster 245 bw will only display a blank screen through the dvi port. Another crt monitor works fine through the vga port . I'm running a nVidia 7800 GS video card.


You need to adjust the monitor refresh rate to 60 Hertz or 70 Hertz.
Use the CRT first to adjust it, then after adjust,plug in your Sync Master to see is it perfect or not,find the best frequency that work best.

To adjust it,right click on the screen,enter properties, then click setting tab.
Then in advanced tab, click it then you see the monitor tab, find the perfect screen refresh rate.

Monitor displays message "Out of Range" when trying to set the resolution to 1600x1200 I have NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M video card with native NVIDIA driver installed


The max resolution to your monitor is 1680x1050. The video card can't help you with the resolution if the monitor doesn't support it.

Same problem screen goes dark.


Hi

Well I would have thought this to be a classic failing monitor until you said even a new monitor does the same thing. This being the case it can only be the video card or drivers for the card. Resolution is easy to change and could cause the problem if the resolution selected cannot be displayed by the monitor. At the main windows screen right click the mouse and select properties. Now click the settings tab and the resolution is on the left side. Your display should also be listed.

Thanks

I have the same problem on my new samsung 2234sw monitor.


The answer to your last questions are yes. Your old video card may not support so high a resolution and this is causing the flicker. Since you said lowering the resolution fixes the problem this would be the most obvious fix. You can get a new GTX 260 with 216 cores 896 mb RAM for about $165. This would allow you to play any games out there or watch hd without any problems. Just make sure your power supply is in the recomended range and has the required connectors for the card. You can get better than a 260 depending on your budget. Hope this helps.

Screen goes blank when I move the mouse


Did it work properly using a VGA (analog) cable? If so, check your DVI (digital) cable against the pictures at the bottom of http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html.
You probably have one of the two at the left. Each has a different bandwidth, translating to a maximum resolution. The native resolution for your monitor might be marginal if you have a single-link DVI-D cable.
My 204B seems very picky about signal-level. It blinks when connected by DVI, even though it should be fine with a single-link cable, and complains about the settings even though the settings are optimal. Maybe yours is similar. I have ordered a dual-link cable and will try that myself.
