Question about PC Desktops

5 Answers

My asus vw202 widescreen 20" monitor refuses to go any higher than a resolution of 1024 x 768. It's supposed to go up to 1680 x 1050. My graphics card is an nvidia 7300gs which should definitely go beyond 1024 x 768 - I have friends running higher than this on lower power graphics. I'm using the Asus monitor driver downloaded from their site. I have had the monitor higher, briefly - then it suddenly shrinks the display to half the screen - and refuses to go beyond 1025 x 768. I've returned the monitor once to PC world - where it appeared to work - however maybe this is anintermittent fault. Any ideas ?

Uninstall the ASUS driver and get the nVidia driver instead. your card and monitor is capable of going higher than 1024x768.

Hi,
. Since you checked the monitor on your friends computer and it works fine .You have replaced the video card and there is no joy. The problem can be because of two things .
1. Problem with the motherboard as you have suspected it to be
2. The operating system files are causing some fault with the operating system

Have you uninstalled the video card driver , and checked the monitor on default windows driver. Also on the your motherboard do have the integrated VGA connector.? Try checking it there
It would be a help if you give the model and make your computer. If its an assemebled machine , give the model of the motherboard

Thanks
Proton

Try uninstalling the monitor driver. You dont require one. It is supposed to be plug n play. The nVidia graphics card should definitely be able to get you the higher resolution you need.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further queries, please post back with steps undertaken and results.

Cheers!

Thank you

    HI

    First we want to see the user manual carefully so that we can understood that it will support the mother board. Ur monitor can support the 1680 x 1050. But check whether ur mother board will support that.
    If its not supported means u can not get that resolution ok. So u need to change the mother board ok..

    See this link for supported operating modes..

Why can't I view the entire screen on Windows 8.1. Why does it cut off the tiles on the left?


Windows 8.1 keeps adding tiles of programs that you install and all tiles/ programs cannot be listed/accomodated in a single view and so you have a scroll bar at bottom that can be used to browse through all the programs that are installed on the system.
also please try changing the display resolution to meet the best resolution (for ex: 1440*900pixels) that your widescreen monitor supports.
as that seems to be the actual issue

Samsung screen is not calibrated properly. There is a line on the right side of the screen that I can't get rid of.


Unfortunately the line didn't show up in the video.

1) New LCD screen?
Should have an Installation CD Disk that comes with it. Use it if so.
Has the Drivers on it.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Don't know which version of the Windows O/S you have.
The device in this case is the LCD monitor.

2) What is the NATIVE screen resolution for the LCD monitor.
Look up the specs on the monitor using it's Model Number on back.

For example I installed an HP 2009M 20-inch widescreen monitor, along with the 26-inch RCA ENV HDTV I use for a monitor.

I had to use the drivers from the disk, but could still not set the native resolution in Display Properties.
There is an alternate resolution to the native one that can be used.
The drivers from the disk made it so.

The 20 inch widescreen is 1600 x 900 (Pixels)
The 26 inch HDTV is set at 1360 x 768 (Pixels)

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
In the Display Properties window click on the Settings tab.

What is the Screen resolution setting? What is it supposed to be?
The Slider on the line is clicked on with the left mouse button, left mouse button held down; then the Slider is slid to the left to decrease screen resolution, or to the right to increase with the mouse.

Color quality should be set to High (32-bit)

1) Installing software (Drivers) from the Installation disk, (Or from the monitor manufacturers support website);
And,
2) Setting the screen resolution;

doesn't help, replace the monitor cable with a known to be good one.

Still no? Your LCD monitor is going out.

When i put pc on this message comes up on screen saying input not supported and it floats round in a little box.


Hello,
This generally means you have the display resolution set higher then the monitor can support. To fix this press F8 after you turn the computer on. You may have to press it a couple times before the windows loading screen. A black menu will come up. Select safe mode. Your PC will load into safe mode with minimal drivers and settings. Go to the control panel and select display. Change your screen resolution to something lower then the setting is is at right now. If your screen is 19" or smaller try a setting of 1024x768 for starters. If its 20" or higher try 1280x1024 for starters.

Need a video card that will allow us to hook up a new wide screen monitor that requires 1080dp. Don't know which video/graphics card will work.


The short answer is no. The belief that widescreen HD monitors require special video cards derives from a combination of two sources. First, most Windows users know that you can change the display resolution by right clicking on the desktop, clicking on settings, and then choosing a resolution from a drop-down menu. What most users do not know is that the choices displayed in that drop down menu are what Windows, the Video Card manufacturer, and the Monitor's manufacturer want you to see. The fact is, most video cards are capable of displaying popular widescreen resolutions such as 1680x1050 dpi and 1920x1080 HD which are 16:10 and 16:9 resolutions.

High pitch sound coming from my old LG 700E monitor


High pitch sound maybe an indicator of a defective monitor or a wrong or incompatible resolution setting of your display properties. The usual is that you have set the resolution higher than that the monitor can hold. Boot the pc in a safe mode. This will give you an option to set the resolution to that resolution accepted by your monitor, the usual is 1024 x 600 or so, avoid higher resolution than this.

Dell GX260 has distorted video on Dell 19" widescreen. Circles turn into ovals.


Most likely the Display Resolution is not set to a 16:9 display aspect ratio (1366 x 768 for example) if you use a 4:3 ratio on a widescreen, then everything is distorted. Make sure the display is set to the optimal resolution You can look up you monitor's Optimal Resolution here:

Good custom settings for samsung 245bw -color,gamma,brght,contrast


Here's a "heads-up" for anyone that hasn't experienced this problem, in case they ever do, as it drove me nuts. Has anyone ever had this happen?

Apparently, when a widescreen (or maybe any LCD, though I've never seen nor hear of this) is about to die, one sign can be a sudden change in your resolution, without being able to be put back, before it finally dies.

Here's the scenario:

I was running a Chemei 22" widescreen monitor. Only a few months old. Reformatted one of my drives, everything was running fine. Ate dinner with the wife, a few hours later turned my system back on, and the entire screen is huge (resolution dropped). Checked properties, and my system was only allowing me to run at either a lower or higher resolution, which is totally bizarre, and I did not have the choice (out of the three) of my native resolution. Attempted to reinstall my GPU driver (nVidia), at first figuring that was the issue. No luck. Tried it again, in a few different ways, but to no avail.

Alright, so then I get this odd thought (because everything else I knew it couldn't be, it obviously wasn't), "What if it's the monitor? If I'm being allowed a higher resolution, the driver must be working alright, but something with the monitor is screwing up the settings. Is that even possible if a monitor is dying?". Well, apparently it is, though I've never seen it once in all my years of building systems.

Finally, I decided to reformat the same drive again, and towards the end of installing XP Pro, waiting to install the GPU driver first thing, the monitor shut off completely. Alright, so I grab my wife's monitor, plug it in... bingo... everything is fine.

So, while some here might have seen this happen, for those who haven't, I had to drop a line about this because it was so damn bizarre, and figured it could be a good piece of info for anyone who ever happens to have this happen to them. Also to warn against even bothering with Chemei monitors.

While I've been building systems for myself, friends and family for years, I'm not heavy on the side of knowing all about LCD monitors, and while I've seen some strange things, I've never actually seen any monitor die in such manner.

If anyone has seen this happen, or knows if it's something just with Chemei monitors, I'd be curious to know. Otherwise, again, just wanted to drop the info in case anyone wakes up to such an odd and frustrating situation.

If reinstalling your drivers doesn't solve the issue, then it would appear (apparently) that it can be a sure-fire sign that your monitor is about to die.

I have a vusys monitor and for some reason when i plug it in to my computer it displays a message "out of range" and i recieve no picture any solutionfor this please?


Either
1.) The resolution/frequency your computer is currently running at is a higher resolution then the monitor can handle. Use a different monitor, if it works then lower resolution and replace with the vusys.

2.) You have physical failure. Your video card, cable, or monitor is bad. (Or you don't have it plugged into the right card). Try a different monitor if it works then and you did step one, then you probably have a bad cable or monitor.
