|I just bought a new Samsung SyncMaster |
2233SW Monitor. It's resolution is 1920x1080.
During boot-up, I get a monitor popup error in
the middle of the screen stating "Not Optimum
Mode - Recommended Mode: 1920x1080
60Hz". When it actually gets into Windows
and the display settings change, the window
Here is my problem:
When I am in the BIOS or in Safe Mode, I get
this popup and after 60 seconds, the display
shuts down. The only way I can get it back is
to turn the monitor off and then back on again.
Here is what I have found out:
The default display during boot-up and in the
BIOS is 1280x1024 at 75 Hz. Apparently the
refresh rate is the issue. When in Windows, I
have changed the display settings to every
possible mode, and only get the popup when
set at 75 Hz. When in Safe Mode, I can
change the resolution, but all modes are set to
"default refresh", & it doesn't state what that
rate is. According to the monitor, it is 75Hz.
Is there any way to change the default refresh
rate of my ATI Radeon (X1600Pro) video card? Is there
any other way to change it in the BIOS or
when in Safe Mode? I would like to set it back
to 60 Hz. That way I should be able to get rid
of this issue in startup, the BIOS, and in Safe
Thanks in advance!
