    I have the same monitor. It has a jittery resolution. It seemed to help considerably when I changed the frequency to a different setting than the default setup that windows did for a "PNP" monitor. I set monitor adapter to 1024x76, true color (32 bit), 72 Hz. DPI setting I am using is 96.

Looks like they are from about 2005, they only have a 1 year limited warranty. Looks like it may be time for a new one.
Good luck,

If i try to connect to 1680x1050, my screen goes dark. but when im using 1600x1000 it still desplays


The resolution 1680X1050 is the native resolution for your monitor. This means that the best view for your monitor is for this resolution. Your problem in not at the resolution, it's at the refresh rate. How to fix this? Go to the settings for your screen. At the lower right corner you will locate "for advanced users" button. Click on it and choose the "screen" tab. At the lower part of the window you will locate the "refresh rate". Click on it and change it at the lower setting (about 60 - 70 Hertz). Click on aplly - OK. You will be back to the resolution settings page. Set the resolution at 1680X1050, apply - ok. Go back to "refresh rate" window and change the setting to a higher setting STEP BY STEP. In case of an "out of range" and blaack screen DON'T DO ANYTHING, at 15 seconds you will come back to the previous settings. With this procedure you will get the native resolution for your screen with the higher refresh rate.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Tip

Flickering LCD/CRT monitor screen or unstable image fix


If the screen flickers, make sure the display settings in Windows match the native resolution and refresh rate for the monitor. You can find the native resolution of a flat panel display in the specifications, in the printed material or on the box that came with the monitor. Some common native resolutions are 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1920 x 1080, and 1680 x 1050. To find out more about optimal screen resolutions see my tip on resolutions here.

The most common refresh rate for LCD monitors is 60 Hz. This normally cannot be changed for flat panel displays using Plug and Play settings. However, if you are using special video software to increase or decrease the refresh rate, change the refresh rate to match the default refresh rate specification of the monitor. To find out more about refresh rates see my tip here.

STEP 1
To change the screen resolution and refresh rate settings in Windows, do the following:
- In Windows XP
See my tip on setting up the optimum screen resolution for Windows XP here.

- In Windows Vista
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel .
2. Find the Appearance and Personalization area, and click Adjust Screen Resolution .
3. Move the slider bar until the screen resolution matches the native resolution.
4. Click Advanced settings, and then click the Monitor tab.
5. Select the Screen refresh rate that matches the default rate for your monitor (if it is not already selected).
6. Click OK, and then click OK again.

If you cannot select the native resolution or the native resolution is unavailable, continue to the next step to update the drivers for the graphics adapter on the computer.

You can get the latest updated video drivers from the video hardware manufacturer's Web site. Here is a list showing some of the video hardware websites:

Check for NVIDIA video driver updates at NVIDIA Home Page.
Check for ATI/AMD video driver updates at ATI Home Page.
Check for Intel video support and downloads, Intel Downloads.

After updating the video drivers, go back to Step 1 and try to change the screen resolution again.
Note: If you cannot select the native resolution after updating the video drivers, the graphics adapter in the computer might not support that resolution and may need to be upgraded.

If after changing the resolution and updating video drivers the flickering persists then check the video cable connections. Unplug the cable and inspect the cable for damage. If the cable is damaged, replace it with a new cable. Try to use cables less than 3 meters (10 feet) long.

Monitors are sensitive to magnetic fields so have a look at the environment around the monitor. Speakers, florescent lights, fans, cell phones, radios, and any other electrical device can cause flickering. Temporarily move electrical items away from the monitor to see if they is producing a field that causes the flicker.

If the monitor has more than one type of connection available such as VGA, DVI, or HDMI, try a different type of connection.

To see if the video coming from the computer is causing the problem, temporarily connect the monitor to another computer. If the flicker is gone when the monitor is connected to another computer, the graphics adapter hardware on the first computer might need to be upgraded to use the monitor.

If however the flicker remains then the problem lies within the harware of the monitor itself and is not a software problem. If you have bought this monitor fairly recently then I suggest you take it back to the place of purchace and have them test it. Some monitors carry 3 year warranty support so if you bought it within the warranty period specified by the reseller I suggest you see if you can get refunded or have them swop it out.

Plugged in a new 23 inch LG LCD Monitor and cannot get picture


In additio to the fine help given by Mister.

If you have a DVI output on your computer get the cable for that and this will greatly increase the quality of your display.

Your graphics card should be able to autodetect a DVI monitor and suggest the best display type.

Monitor displaying out of range message


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

This usually happens when you select a resolution or a refresh rate that is beyond the monitor range. For example if your monitor supports a max. resolution of 1024x768 then if you give it a signal of 1600x1200 it will display out of range.

Solution of this problem is to reduce the resolution or refresh rate frequency.

Changing screen resolution in Windows XP: 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 1.1 below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

xp-screen-resolution-1.gif

The areas worth noting are:

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.

How to Change the Screen Refresh Rate of Your Monitor loadTOCNode(2, 'summary');
  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.

    Alternatively, right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Settings tab, and then click Advanced.
  3. Click the Monitor tab, and then click the screen refresh rate that you want to use.
NOTE:
  • The default refresh rate setting is 60 Hertz (HZ); however, your monitor may support a higher setting. Check your manufacturer's documentation for information about the settings that your monitor supports.
  • If you use a higher refresh rate, you can reduce the rate that your screen flickers; however, if you specify a refresh rate that is too high for your monitor, your screen may become unusable and your hardware may be damaged.
  • Changes to the refresh rate affect all users that log on to the computer.

You need to set the screen resolution or refresh rate of your windows. I am assuming you have XP.
PLEASE READ THE WHOLE OF THIS FIRST, BECAUSE YOU MAY WISH TO DO THE BIT AT THE BOTTOM FIRST, LABELLED 'IF ALL ELSE FAILS'


Start your computer in safe mode (press F8 persistently at boot up)
Select safe mode
  • In windows, right click on a blank area of the desktop.
Left click on properties
Left click on the settings tab
Move the screen resolution slider fully over to the left.
Apply, and OK.
Restart your PC normally now.
If you get into windows OK you can repeat the above procedure from the bullet point above, but this time move the slider to a screen resolution that suits you.

If this doesnt solve the problem it may be the refresh rate, if so, when you get to the line where you click on the settings tab, then click on advanced. Select Adapter or Monitor and reduce the refresh rate to 60 or 70 hz. Apply and restart.

IF ALL ELSE FAILS

If you are STILL struggling, put your old monitor back on, set the screen resolution to 640x480 and 60hz as per the above instruction in normal (not safe) mode. Then shut the PC down and re-attach your new monitor. The reset the screen resolution back up.

Good Luck

Problem with my LG monitor L194WT


You will have to increase the referesh rate first and then go into the game and reset the resolution. The resolution bit is secondary. If increasing the refresh rate works, then you dont have to change the resolution :)

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)

Screen flickers badly at the resolution i want to use and no option to alter refresh rate - any ideas?


I assume you're using windows XP or Vista ? The OS uses data from the monitor to tell it resolutions and refresh rates supported. If you get flicker and cannot alter the refresh rate, it is because the monitor will not supprt a fatsre refresh rate. Your only option, unfortunately, is to get a new monitor, or the cheaper option, use a different resolution.

There may wrong setting of refresh rate. Most monitors work at 60 to 70 Hz refresh rate. Above that they tunned blank screen or out 0f range message displayed. Also check the output video signal. Please confirm technical specifications from the documentatation of the monitor.
