Can someone please help me?
My monitor is diplaying a message that says "Not optimum resolution. Try 1024 x 768". That is what it is on.
If I connect a different monitor to it and reboot it works fine. Then I connect the Samsung up again and it will work for a couple of days and then randomly turn off again.
I thought it could have been the graphics card because it was very old so I replaced it and it is still happening.
Does anyone have an idea?
Hi Philter, when you change the resolution to their recommended pixel (1024x768), is it solve your problem? If not, this properly is the lcd mainboard problem. Because i have try some of the samsung lcd monitor have this type of problem. If you're a component level repairman, then you can try to change the EPROM IC and reprogrma their data inside that ic. This will solve problem. Any lcd repair information, please visit this site http://www.fastrepairguide.com . You also can get some lcd monitore service manual.

Re: Pixel size error
Ensure you are at Maximum resoloution in Advanced Settings, Also set the "Colors" to 32Bit if available,, maybe thats wat it means 1024 x 768 x 32bit ? But a lot of monitors your size should do is 1280 x 1024 x 32bit .. can you set that up? ... Make sure you go to the Video Card Manufactureres site and download latest driver for your exact Card and system

The resolution your computer is sending is greater than the maximum support resolution of your monitor that isn't working or is a resolution not supported. Connect one of the monitors that works and turn down the resolution to something small (800x600 or 1024,768) and then switch to the original monitor back, you should see a picture and can adjust the resolution to something larger that the monitor supports.
The LCD monitors and laptop monitors nowadays have a 'optimum resolution'. The monitor likes to work at a pre-defined resolution.
Games play at a resolution previously set. Usually this differs from the optimum resolution of a LCD/LED screen. Then this error message will appear.
However, crashing of the computer might happen due to other reasons.
You have to make sure the above problems are not the reason for crashes.
Also try playing somewhat older games. If the problem occurs due to your VGA not supporting the new games, older games will work fine.
Try these suggestions and let us know.
Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa!
I have a similar problem with this monitor, i always after connecting having to go to the "screen Position and Size" setting in my ATI FireGL. and shift the screen 1 pixel, and the color and resolution turn ok, it is manual step, but better than no fix
The LCD monitor is actually a active matrix of small transistors (3 for each pixel). They have one native resolution, a FIXED one for example you monitor has 1024 x 768 pixels. This results in 786432 pixels displayed on the screen. Because each pixel is controlled by 3 transistors there will be 2359296 transistors controlling your entire screen. This is a fix number. You can't raise the resolution to 1280 x 1024 because this will require as you can see now... a lot more transistors on the same surface.
All you can do is to lower the resolution, in this case 4 pixels (12 transistors) form a larger pixel acording to that lower resolution. The image can look blurry in these situations.
THe bottom ideea is that a LCD pannel (more corectly said, TFT (thin transistor film) pannel, has one optimum resolution, it's native one. The higher the better, when choosing one to buy, but you can't raise the resolution over that. You can just lower it.
It works different then the normal conventional CRT monitors.
