Refresh rate is stuck on 30Hz when i try set it to 1080

Q: Refresh rate is stuck on 30Hz when i try set it to 1080

Hi,

Recently i bought a new monitor (samsung p2250) which neither vista/win7 allowed me to set the resolution to 1080p.

The resolutions already exist when i open Nvidia control panel, but windows doesn't allow me to use it. My refresh rate is stuck on 30Hz when i try set it to 1080p through the normal "screen resolution" option. I followed your method in vista and it works perfectly (thanks!) but when i try the same thing in windows 7, it says the resolution already exists and doesn't allow me to create the custom resolution.

Any idea whats going on? is it a software or hardware problem?

Hello Anon, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if installing your monitors drivers may be able to help allow you to select the refresh rate afterwards. I found these at Samsung. Not sure what the difference is with LCD and Premium, but they are the same driver though. Click on the Driver option to see them under the Downloads tab.

Support for P2250 SAMSUNG

I have Asus X51RL and the Refresh Rate is stuck to 60Hz. Is it possible to make to change it a bit? I have noticed that ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 drivers aren't being updated by AMD, so I am stuck with what was on the CD that came with the laptop itself; it could be the graphics card's fault, but it could be a driver issue, or something with the LCD -- it's recognised as a Generic PnP Display, because no drivers for the LCD came with the laptop, nor are there some in Asus' website.

A:Refresh Rate Stuck to 60Hz

I don't think increasing the refresh rate on an LCD display has any effect? It makes a big difference on a CRT but is inconsequential as far as LCD's go. LCD's don't refresh, the pixel is either on or off. The big thing is to set the resolution to the native resolution recommended for that display. My two LCD's show up as Generic PnP Monitor in device manager, but if I go to the Screen resolution window they are listed as AG191. I have the option for 60Hz or 75Hz but I don't think it matters which one I use. I've always just left it at the default 60Hz.

The refresh rate is dictated by the monitor and it is genrally not a good idea to fiddle with the settings of laptop screens - if it locks up you cannot unplug it and reset it. It will already be optimised for the machine anyway.

I formatted the HDD on this computer and re-installed XP on it. It seems fine, except for one problem.

When viewing webpages (with any browser, such as IE or Firefox) it has what seems to be a terrible refresh rate. If I scroll down, it takes about 3 entire seconds to redrew the window. It's so bad, I can see the "refresh" scroll up replacing the page with the new content. As far as I can tell, this isn't a problem with Windows Explorer windows. It's really slow in this case.

Any idea why?
 

A:Bad refresh rate?

Since windows was re-installed the thing that has to be done is to install all of the special drivers like chipset, buss, network, audio, video and others, they can be installed in any order you wish and can be found on the system recovery disk set for the computer if it is an OEM like Compaq, Dell etc. or if you do not have a recovery disk set the drivers can be found on the manufacturers web site for either the motherboard or the manufacturer of the computers web site. You can download these drivers and burn to a CD-R and then install those following instructions to reboot when asked.

Your card is my card, almost to a T. My card sucked also, until I got omega drivers and cool bits. I let cool bits overclock the card after I installed the omega drivers. If you do it, let cool bits auto detect the settings. The driver number is 14523a for whatever OS you are running.
Mine still isn't the greatest, but she is clocking and playing games MUCH better.
Might want to give it a whirl. Also, if you don't want to reset it on every start up, check the box that says apply on start up.
Refresh rate, 100 worked for me.
P.S. You can't overclock with nvidia drivers unless you reset it everytime you reboot.

Hello,

I just replaced the CRT to a 19" LCD monitor and now adjusting the settings to best suit my eyes.

Staring at the monitor more than 8 hours a day sometimes strain my eyes, so I want to ask how I should set the screen resolution and the screen refresh rate.
The manufactures' recommended resolution is 1440 x 900 but the refresh rate is maxed at 60. If I select 1280 x 800, refresh rate goes up to 75 Hertz.

Are LCD the same as CRT when it comes to screen refresh rate Hertz? My main concern is my eyes.

Thanks for your time.
 

A:CRT Refresh Rate same as LCD Refresh Rate?

At least the blinking and hor. lines and stuff like that, which were a problem on CRTs, do not apply on LCDs. I hear. So, you could propably just set it at 1280x800 @ 60 Hz.

Hi there,
I noticed that there was an option to create a new custom resolution on which had 60 Refresh rate , and i could make it higher.
What is it?

and also, what is Allocation size?
When i format , the default is 4096.

Thanks,

A:What is refresh rate?

The refresh rate is how fast your screen refreshes. So the higher the better, which means that it will update the screen at 60 hz. I don't know exactly how fast that is, but its roughly the standard.

Allocation size is the HDD RAM I believe. Its what the system uses when it runs out of RAM. It is much slower, but keeps the system going.

A:refresh rate on monitor

More than likely the refresh rates are to high not to low.. To fix it, press F8 while booting and choose to boot into safe mode.. When in safe mode enter the display properties and set the display to 640 X 480 and the color depth as high as it'll go. Reboot and the adaptor should default back to the default 60hz refresh rate, you can then further adjust your adaptor settings through the display property settings.

(Right click on the desktop and select properties to enter the display settings, click the settings tab to alter the color depth or resolution and click the advanced button under settings tab, then the monitor tab to change the refresh rate.. If you set the refresh rate to high it can damage your monitor or make it not work correctly)

Hello,

I have a laptop, not a desktop, and it has a 60hz refresh rate and I believe a 120hz refresh rate is better for most games. So I'm thinking to buy a monitor that has a 120hz refresh rate or more and just plug in using the VGA cable.

So let's say I have a 120hz monitor, will my laptop now has a 120hz refresh rate or does it still remain original, i.e 60hz ?

A:Monitor refresh rate

Hi. I suspect the laptop will still run at a max of 60 Hz but it is possible to get a monitor to run at 120 Hz (the LCD screen in the monitor has a native resolution of 120Hz) no matter what it is set to when the signal is fed to it it would be upscaled and that can cause some weird issues. Frankly you really need a super high end video card costing somewhere near the whole laptop and a fast PC to run games at the rate a 120Hz monitor would be really useful without seeing artefacts and stuff that makes your head spin.

Frames per second fps is the actual amount of frames the video card will redraw

Refresh rate is the actual frames per second the monitor will redraw.

A problem arises when the refresh rate is lower the the fps thus limiting the video card to perform slower as it has to wait for the monitor to draw the frames.

Hi hookem,

Welcome to Vista Forums.

You will just need to adjust your screen resolution to a different size until you find one that supports a higher refresh rate. It may take a few tries to find one. This is limited to what your video card and monitor combined can support.

also when i scroll on any web browser or in any folder ect.. the scrolling goes reaaaaaaaaaaaaly slowly and jercky and takes ages to move to the destination. also some flash games and other games go really jerkcky aswell............this isnt due to the 'smooth scrolling' thing ive tried that but i think its also to do with the driver for the video card ... if it helps it says Ati Radeon 2 and pentium 4 on the laptop please help!!

using DVI to HDMI cable for connection... any help would be greatly appreciated, waiting by patiently for your inputs

also there is a 1 inch border along the entire screen in black i cant get rid of... display shows 1920x1080
OK ... so i updated my cards drivers... and restarted, now the border is 1 inch over the display, but settings still show 1920x1080..

ok i found it for whoever needs to know.

Even though you can force a 120hz refresh through the Nvidia control panel, I think the TV only takes 60hz refresh rates listed in the manual (pretty sure no TVs accept 120hz inputs but that would be nice). Check the manual for PC compatible timings.
As far as the overscan, make sure the PC is plugged into HDMI-1 on the TV. With the remote, re-name HDMI-1 to "PC" and set picture size to "just scan".

If you already did all that, downloading the latest Nvida driver should fix it (as it did for me). These sets are very PC freindly so you should not have any overs... Read more

A:Please help with Monitor refresh rate..

I've experienced exactly the same thing (on a Samsung 52" lcd). It isn't the refresh rate, it's the overscan/underscan settings.

Open Catalyst Control Center and find DTV in the list on the left. Click on this and you should get a list of options and settings. The one you want is "Scaling Options." Click on it and you should now see a slider labeled Underscan at one end and Overscan on the other end. Slide the pointer all the to Overscan (0%).

The desktop should now fill your screen (no borders) and the text should be sharp.

Hope this helps.
