When I am in high refresh rates,for example, above 70 hrz. After pressing the menu button the osd doesn't apear on the screen. But the functionality is still there. I mean when I use my memory and change through the options all of them work fine. On lower refresh rates, for example, 60 hrz. after pressing the menu button the screen gets unstable. as it's obvious those horizantal lines are the osd. I see them white and when I move on the options of the osd.I can notice the blue hightlights. when my monitor was fully healthy. after setting my graphic card on refresh rates that the monitor couldn't support a dialog box message were on screen indicating the unsupported refresh rates. now that this problem arised the dialog box doesn't apear. on 60 hz that I bring osd on screen the lines are as big as the monitor. I mean the horizantal white line blinking on screen . are as wide as the monitor width. but as we know a healthy osd is quite little at the center of monitor even in low resolution. By the way, everything else about my monitor is quite fine. Actually I am thinking not to touch it and continue using it,since it's fine. but I am worried if this lead into any other serious problem.So my second question is what can happen if I don't try to fix this osd issue. As i said my monitor screen is quite fine. correct colors, sharp images without any moire. please remember that I have two different question on this problem. Thank you very much.
You will find the number one motto from many of the Tech's is "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!" If you must fix it try the latest drivers for your video card and for the monitor. The OS(XP) is always changing. Keep the drivers up to date. Otherwise. Don't mess with it. Good Luck, Let me know what happens. Tim
