You need to update the video drivers of your computer, 1280X1024 is the optimum setting for a 17" LCD monitor.
Go to control panel> display>settings and see if you can manually set your computer to 1280X1024 and also select monitor and change the resolution to 60Hz.
If you cannot do either then you will have to update your video card drivers.

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.

My Samsung monitor displays the message "Not optimum mode; recommended mode 1920x1080 60 hertz - Analog" - whenever I try to boot in a Safe Mode (WinXP). It works fine in a normal mode as well as in VGA...


  1. Navigate to the Control Panel in Microsoft Windows by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel window, open Display.
    Note: Depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the Display icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that says Switch to Classic View.
  3. In the Display Properties window, click on the Settings tab.
  4. Toward the bottom of this window, click on the Advanced button.
  5. In the resulting window, which may or may not be tittled Plug and Play Monitor..., click on the Monitor tab.
  6. Locate the Screen refresh rate drop down box in the middle of the window. Under most circumstances, the best choice is the highest rate available. Depending on your issue though, the rate may need to be lowered.
    Note: It is always recommended to keep the Hide modes that this monitor cannot display checkbox checked. Choosing refresh rates outside this range could damage hardware.
  7. Click the OK or Apply button to confirm the changes. If prompted, follow any additional on screen directions.

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.

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.
