Not optimum mode appears on screen - PC Desktops

Posted by on

  • jb4841 Aug 02, 2008

    I am using a Mac Power Book G4 and using the SyncMaster 2234DW Samsung screen as a TV screen and a screen to watch TV using EyeTV on the computer. I am doing this because i live in a remote area and sometimes the EyeTV gives better reception.


    Everything was working all right until a couple of days ago when the message "Not optimum mode" came up. It gave the figures 1680X1050 which is the optimum mode for 22' screens given in the instructions which is what I have selected on the computer for the screen when i use it.


    The message now comes up every time I switch the screen on. It stays there for a couple of minutes. I don't know if it is telling me that the 1680X1050 is wrong or if it isn't working at that mode.


    I think the screen isn't as clear as it was but this may only be my imagination. Also, I have different display profiles for the computer laptop screen and the Samsung screen.


    It doesn't give clear instructions for setting or resetting the screen mode in the instructions (other than initial set-up) which is only a folded sheet of paper, not a booklet.


    Even if i can stop the message from coming up it would be a help.

Screen is black, white square is moving around says "Not optimum mode Recommended mode : 1280x1024 60 Hz' Analog"


Hi,

Your resolution has been to a "not supported" range. You can try to boot to safe mode by pressing F8 while booting. While in safe mode, go to device manager and look for your video adapter there. Delete the driver for it and reboot the computer.

That should reset it for you.

Hope this works for you.

My son was on my computer and change my video mode and turn off my computer and now it say that it can not display the video mode optimum resolution 1024x768 60Hz


Hi,
Please reboot the machine. After it beeps hit F8 repeatedly. You'll get
a menu. One menu item will be "vga mode". Choose that, and use
the control panel to A) set 800x600, boot normally
or B) try setting your normal mode. Hope this helps even a bit.

Cannot Display This Video Mode... Optimum resolution 1680X1050 60Hz. This is all I can see, How can change the resolution back to resolution that I can display?


Reboot your PC and press F8 just before Windows loads to get it to load using safe mode, which you select from a list (You may have to continuously press F8). Once you have loaded in safe mode, select the correct resolution for your monitor then reboot the PC normally. You should now be able to see the screen correctly.

I have an error message on my screen which ios moving around. It says - 'not optimum mode. Recommended mode : 1280 x1024 60Hz'.


Sounds like you have an LCD monitor. LCD monitors look best in their native resolution. Yours must be 1280x1024. You need to (assuming this is a Windows PC) right click on the desktop and choose Personalize, Display Settings (Vista) or Properties, Settings (XP or older). Set the slider to 1280x1024. It'll confirm the change and then the message should never reappear.

Press F8 during startup to show the boot options. Boot to VGA mode (if available) or safe mode and change your resolution in windows to the recommended 1280X1080. To do this in XP just right click on the desktop and select 'properties', click on the right-most tab and move the slider.

In Vista this would be right-click desktop, select 'personalise', click 'display settings' and move slider.

Hope this helps,

erch.
