|According to the link OtheHill found, |
and several other "hits" for Digimate L-1718 I found, the specs that might be related to your problem are:
Maximum resolution 1280x1024
(Maximum) Vertical frequency 75 Hz
I looked at the Digimate site:
They appear to have NO specific info about your model, and are no longer selling it.
How to install the LCD monitor in the operation system?
Click on the > Next boxes.
You install Plug and Play Monitor drivers.
There are no specific drivers for your model, or ANY Digimate monitor model.
Apparently, according to various "hits" I found on the web, your model and all Digimate monitor models are/were relatively cheap to buy - they're what I and others call el-cheapo models - el-cheapo monitor models often have no specific monitor drivers.
So, as I mentioned previously, in that case, you are supposed to use Plug and Play Monitor drivers, but you MUST make sure you DO NOT exceed the max specs of your model, otherwise you are likely to DAMAGE the monitor.
How to adjust LCD refresh rate to over 60Hz in the operation system?
Click on the > Next boxes.
DO NOT choose a rate higher than the specs for your model, 75 HZ, or you are likely to DAMAGE it!
DO NOT choose a resolution higher than 1280x1024 - you can choose other resolutions but neither number should be higher than either of those, otherwise you may DAMAGE your monitor!
When you overclock you have to know what you're doing - it's best to consult overclocking related web sites that already have determined settings that work without problems for your particular cpu/brand name system if that applies/mboard model if that doesn't apply/mboard main chipset.
According to the specs you provided
you have a relatively old system.
- there are lots of cards/mboard main chipsets/ other chipsets on mboards that won't tolerate the ISA, PCI, or AGP bus speeds being overclocked any more than a little above standard specs.
- In experiments I did with K6-2, K6-III, and K6-2+ a.k.a. K6-III+ cpus, on Via MVP3 main chipset mboards, upping the core voltage did not significantly increase overall performance, but it sure made the cpu run hotter and heat up faster under load - from that I concluded it's best to not have the cpu core voltage any higher than it's rated spec for those cpus, the value printed on the cpu, unless you determine otherwise from confirmed info you find on the web.
The computer I am typing this on has a Via MVP3 main chipset, and a K6-III 450 cpu.
When I used a K6-2+ 550 cpu on it, I could overclock it to 600mhz, no problem, without it overheating, with a standard heatsink/fan suitable for a 550. (6 X 100mhz - the X2 multiplier on the mboard is intepreted by the K6-2 and K6-III cpus as 6X on the cpu itself).
If your mboard has a MVP3 main chipset, I have lots more info.
"Also, I forgot to say...about a week before these lines appeared , one day I was browsing the internet and my monitor kinda went blank, like it had turned off...for about literally 2 seconds then came back as normal without me doing anything."
That can be caused by many things....
- two, as OtheHill mentioned, are the cpu is overheating or the gpu on the card is overheating, but in that case it's likely it would have happened more than just once and it will likely continue to do that until whatever it is has cooled down some.
- another is your power supply capacity may be overloaded - if that's your case it will eventually FAIL!
If you still have the original PS for your system
it probably only requires a rec. minimum 200 watt power supply.
However, the relatively recent video card you upgraded to may require that your power supply has more capacity.
Your power supply must have at least the minumum capacity required to support a system with the graphics card you are using installed, or the max graphics card you might install in the future.
(Onboard video - video built into the mboard - IS NOT A CARD!)
You can go to the video card maker's web site and look up the specs for the model - often under system requirements - the minimum PS wattage, and, more important, the minimum amperage the PS must supply at 12v is stated. If you don't find that, any card with the same video chipset including any letters after the model number has very similar minimum PS requirements.
If you want to cover any possible video card, a minimum 600 ot 650 watt power supply will handle any current high end video card, or even a X2 card (two video chipsets on one card) or two cards in two slots.
If you find your PS does NOT have enough capacity for a system with the graphics card you are using.....
In most cases, if your PS is ATX, your PS can be replaced with any decent standard sized standard ATX PS.
(if your PS/mboard is AT, you not likely to find an AT PS that has more than 250 watts capacity)
Standard (PS/2) power supply size - 86mm high, 150mm wide, 140mm deep, or 3 3/8" h x 5 7/8" w x 5 1/2" d , or very close to that, though the depth can be more or less for some PSs.
Don't buy an el-cheapo PS.
See response 3 in this:
Most new PSs have a combo 20/24 "pin" main connector - if the main connector socket on your mboard is 20 "pin" you simply unclip or omit connecting the 4 "pin" connector that makes it 24 "pin"- so, in that case, you don't need to find one that has only a 20 "pin" main connector.
