Monitor SyncMaster P2370HD 1080p don't work properly in 1080p.

Q: Monitor SyncMaster P2370HD 1080p don't work properly in 1080p.

Hello. I just bough a screen for my computer.
I am using Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
Radeon HD5850 1GB graphic card.
Using HDMI cable

And I was hoping to get a great screen in 1920x1080 resolution by buying this screen. After reading like 10 reviews on google search it was a great match to my demands.

Then I got the screen, and tested it. However when I selected to run in 1920x1080, the quality was horrible!
I try to do print screen, but only the analog display is horrible, not the results on the computer.

However if I tune this down to 1600x1200 resolution, it looks great. But I want to have the full 1920x1080 effect not the 1600x1200 effect.

I checked the drivers, and it says my latest driver is "2009/10/29_001003". Witch looks like a recent date.

I have tried to google any specific drivers for this screen for vista/Win7 that got a newer date than my drivers. Without any luck.

I try to google other people who have same problem as me, however, I only get to 1000x different reviews of this monitor, fake driver download/repair sites and such things.

I got very mixed up feelings about this. I do not know if I shall try to deliver back the screen, or that 1920x1080p isn't for computers? Or maybe HDMI cant run 1920x1080p? Is it a malefactor fault? Shall i just stick to the screen and appreciate that it works good in 1600x1200, I mean it isn't that much lower. But I keep dreaming that the screen is originally made for 1080p and that the screen quality will be even better once I get it to 1920x1080 than with 1600x1200.

Since I keep thinking:
1920 * 1080 = 2 073 600 pixels.
1600 * 1200 = 1 920 000 pixels.

A screen that advertise itself as a 1080p product, should have approx 2 mill pixels. So when it tunes down to 1.9 mill pixels quality should reduce. Isn't pixels hard-coded into the screen?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Monitor SyncMaster P2370HD 1080p don't work properly in 1080p.

the latest driver on AMD's website is dated 9/15/2010. it probably wont solve your problem, but it cant hurt to try.

I have a Viewsonic 28" LCD monitor (model vx2835wm) which is pretty good, but not the greatest quality to say the least. It is 1080p supported too.

However, I need something of better quality. My question is the monitor *must* have 1900x1080 resolution specifically to be 1080p supported correct, even if it offers higher resolution options?

Example:
Dell 27" UltraSharp Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor

Higher resolutions, 1920x1200 too, but not 1920x1080 specifically. Would this be a bad idea for Blu-Ray movies (my Sony laptop has a built in Blu Ray player)?

A:LCD 1080p Monitor?

Not a problem, as long as it has 1080p support over the *relevant* inputs (eg, some 24" monitors support 1080p on VGA and DVI, but not on component input etc), so you will have to check the specs of the monitor you intend to buy.

If it has 1:1 pixel mapping, or scaling on those inputs, you should even be able to view the movie at the correct aspect ratio. PC widescreen LCD monitors have 16:10 aspect ratio while HDTVs are 16:9. So, your 1920x1080 video will be seen with small black bars along the top and bottom of a 1920x1200 LCD, but with the correct ratio of height and width. Ofcourse, you will still be able to 'fill the monitor screen' if you choose, but with the penalty of slight distortion of the image.

1:1 Scaling can be achieved either via your PC graphics card (if Nvidia) or through the configuration settings on your monitor. Note that not all monitors offer 1:1 mapping, and IIRC, some ATI video cards lack this feature too.

Hello, I am looking for an HP 21.5 inch 1080p IPS monitor with height adjustment to use in a dual monitor setup with my Dell p2214h. I basically want a monitor with the same specs as the Dell p2214h but an HP. I was looking at the HP EliteDisplay E222 because it seemed to have the same specs, the only difference I could see was that it had HDMI instead of DVI, which is better for me anyway. If anyone has a suggestion for an HP monitor that matches the dell p2214h, please let me know. I could just buy another dell, but I have always liked HP laptops and I thought I might give their monitors a try. (It must run in the family, because my parents and even grandparents always buy HP computers) Dell p2214h specs that I want the HP monitor to match:AH-IPS screenW-LED backlightNon-PWM backlight (this isn't required, but it is much preferred)Antiglare coatingA display port input and an HDMI/DVI input (HDMI is preferred)Stand with height, tilt, swivel, and pivot adjustmentsA sleek and modern design As stated earlier, the HP e222 matches a lot of the features the dell has and might be the best, though I am open for suggestions and saw a few other HP monitors that might work, such as the e221. Edit: Just did some reaserch and found out that the HP e221 doesn't have an IPS display. No wonder it was so cheap

Hi,

As some of you may know, I've just built a new system (you may know as I've already had a couple of issues I've had help with on here :P). To save some money, I'm initially using a TV as a monitor connected with an HDMI lead. The TV is a 19" fully-HD TV which is capable of displaying up to 1080P. I've updated my system specs on here, I'm using an NVidia Geforce GTX660ti GPU.

The issue is that if I set my resolution to 1920x1080, it's very 'zoomed out', as in.. the task bar is very thin and everything on the screen appears a lot smaller - sorry it's not a very good description. The display is also not fitting to the corners of the monitor, there's a black border which displays things when I'm watching TV. To make things appear normal (or at least as normal as possible), I'm being forced into using 1176x664 resolution, which is obviously not ideal by any means.

As ever, any advice/guidance is much appreciated.

Thanks!

EDIT: It's also probably relevant to note I have upgraded my drivers from the Nvidia website.

A:Using 1080P-Capable TV As Monitor; Resolution 'Zoomed Out'.

Its probably suppose to be that small least on a 1080 screen that is under 20 inches. I know on my 17 inch laptop 1920x1200 is pretty small. You can try playing with the settings in the Nvidia control panel under Display > Adjust desktop size and position.

Does not work with my cable set top box(STB) at anything above 720P. Multiple STB tried, multiple cables, etc that all work fine with my full HD TV. (Motorola VIP2202 is STB  full digital w IP between boxes from fiber modem to router-- allows you to set max resolution of your "TV" or monitor in my case.  Has full HD capability and delivers many HD signals from HD only TV Channels).  So I am trying to decide: Do I not understand what HDCP should mean?  Shouldn't my STB play w the monitor at 1080P just like my HDTV?Is the Monitor faulty (bad HDCP) & should I exchange for a working one during my retailer's 30 day return window?Should I buy a different brand -- anyone had success w STB to monitor at full HD with another make?I am replacing a monitor (dead) that gave me 720P from the STB via a HDMI to VGA adapter.  I expected to move up with a "modern" higher end monitor -- instead, I ended up the same place.

I've had my HKC 21.6" monitor for over a year now, and i've been using it with my PC at 1920 x 1080 with no problems.
However, two days ago the screen suddenly went black and displayed the message "Out of Range". I've had to drop the resolution to 1680 x 1050 in order to see anything.

Best thing I can advise is. Grab the latest WHQL ATI and CCC drivers.

before installing, uninstall your ati drivers in safe mode and your monitor from device manager.

Boot into normal mode and install the drivers. Make sure in setting you take off check for only display resolutions this monitor can handle,,, ok give it a shot.. let us know.. gl

So I am just curious guys tell me what you think! I was wanting something that can handle the games we have now and future games like Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs and The Division.

My monitor is 1600x900 20 Inch with 16GB of RAM, 700W Power Supply.

One card I looked at before I saw the R9 290X was the 7970 GHz Edition. Just tell me what you think guys. I don't want to speed $500+ on a card that wouldn't perform as well on my resolution that it would on high resolutions. Down the road I will probably get a bigger monitor. But for now I have a nice one.

On the other hand is it really going to hit me performance wise with an R9 290X on a 1600x900 Res?

I have noticed more and more that 22" monitors are being advertised as 1080P compatible, such as this one. My question I guess, is what is this dependent on? Are all monitors with a native resolution of 1680 x 1050 technically 1080P compatible with the proper cables? I wanted to stick with Samsung if I'm going to upgrade, something along these lines.
 

A:22" LCD's and 1080P

I don't know how they are claiming 1080p compatible, but 1080p is 1920 x 1080. There is no way that a 1680 x 1050 display can show full 1080p detail.

I want to back up my collection of blu ray movies and I don't know If i want to back them up in 720p or 1080p. im new to blu ray, just bought my first few movies the other day, but i like keeping them on the compie...

i like the idea of true hd, but ripping to 1080p would be huge, and i just want to know if i would ever be able to tell a difference.
i hear you cant tell the difference of 720 vs 1080 unless the screen size is "50 +

I am seeing an XPS 13 1080p / FHD touchscreen on dell.com and the microsoft store websites.  When did this come out?  I don't see any info or reviews online.  I'm wondering if it has a matte screen, and how the battery life compares to the QHD+ and 1080p non-touch versions.

A:New XPS 13 1080p touchscreen?

The screen is glossy - all touch panel systems are.  There should be no difference in battery life between touch and non-touch versions at the same resolution.
FHD will easily double (or more) QHD battery runtime.

I posted this in an AMD forum but thought I would also try this forum as it slightly pertains to Windows 7 too.

I just picked up a new graphics card HD6750 for my HTPC. I am then connecting the HTPC via HDMI to an 1080p LED TV.

How do I ensure that I am sending an 1080p signal to my TV?

My TV manual states that the tv supports:
1080P 1920 x 1080P

So I know the TV can handle it.

Do I simply set the Dispaly settings to 1080P 1920?

A:1080p output

Right-click some where on your desktop when displayed on the TV, click on "Screen resolution".
Does the resolution say 1920x1080?

Just received my HDMI cable for my PS3 and hooked it up to my LG 720p TV. It prompted me that it detected an HDMI connection and asked if I wanted to set to "Optimal Settings" or "Optimal Resolution" (Can't remember exactly what the message was). I said yes and it then told me the settings were on the Optimal setting of 1080p...well my TV is a 720p. Shouldnt it not be able to support 1080p settings?? or will it just automatically set the quality to the most the TV can handle?

I have a 22" Samsung Syncmaster T220HD display connected to a Dell Optiplex GX280 SFF PC via HDMI. Recently, I purchased a Sapphire ATI Radeon HD4550 DDR3 512MB PCI-Express low profile video card. When I set the resolution to 1920 x 1080i or 1280 x 720p the picture is in HD; however, when set to 1920 x 1080p the picture doesn't show in HD. Why is this? Shouldn't 1080p be in HD??
 

A:1080p not showing in HD.

Elaborate a little, what does "doesn't show in HD" mean?

I know that I need a good graphics card to run higher resolution screens. I would get a 15" inch screen either 900p or 1080p.
So, I was wondering if I would be able to play games with a NVIDIA GeForce 540M on a 900p screen normally?
Also, if not, could the NVIDIA GeForce 550M play on a 900p?
Also, the 450M on a 1080p? and a 550M on a 1080p?

Also, if i bought a 17" screen, would I need a better graphics card to make up for the same difference of 900p and 1080p?

I'm getting 9 hours of battery life on 1080p and do not see a huge quality difference betweek 4K and 1080 (as Windows scales the fonts up anyway). I don't really need 4K video, which would seem the one area where I might want UHD. Will I do any damage to this thing by running it in 1080p most of the time? It seems to run cooler and quieter too. 

A:920 UHD: Any reason not to run at 1080p?

No, you will not cause any damange running it in a lower resolution.I do the same thing myself on my 910 as some of the software I use still doesn't scale properly.

Hi, I am finally looking to upgrade my otherwise perfect U41-70's horrid WXGA TN panel with a Full HD IPS panel, and have ordered the panel from LaptopScreen.com. However, the devil is in the cables. While my panel hasn't arrived yet, browsing the forums tells me that a 768p panel will have come with a single-lane eDP cable? I am now looking to order a dual-lane cable, hopefully to arrive at the same time as the screen. Could anybody provide me with the correct part number? Lenovo's Hardware Maintenance Manual has been semi-helpful. While it makes it clear that the laptop comes with both HD and FHD panels, it only lists one part number for the eDP cable - see image. Does this mean the existing cable could in fact be compatible with both resolutions, or is the more detailed distinction in the cables simply ommitted from the manual?  Please help! My laptop's S/N: R90HAXKJ   MTM: 80JV009WYA

I recently purchased a monitor for my desktop ( i was using my 42" hdtv ).
Well, i bought a ativa at220H advertised as a 1080p monitor.
My problem is, when i run 1920x1080, the left side of the screen goes out of view by about 3-4".
1680x1050 works fine. now, if i switch back and fourth between resolutions about 10 - 15 times, it will correct itself, but when i load a application that changes the resolution ( any game ) it will mess up again when it returns to 1080p.
But, world of warcraft will ALWAYS run fine at 1080p, that is the only software i have that runs fine at that resolution.
And i do not think its a problem with my graphics card, because if i recall correctly, it worked fine at 1080p on my hdtv.
btw, video card is a XFX 4850.
 

A:problem with 1080p

My HDTV will do that occasionally. Have you tried the "auto ajust" setting on the monitor?

Hi, I'm trying to use my TV as a monitor with HDMI but I am having problems. I have a 32" 1080p Insignia TV (model number ns-32l450a11) whose native resolution is reported to be 1920x1080 on all specs listings I could find on the internet. However, the 1920x1080 option only outputs in 30Hz, with considerable latency. The color quality and image clarity is fine, but the image needs to be overscanned. I was able to find a workaround in the form of a custom driver someone made, and unlocked it to 60Hz. With this, the TV maintains the high input lag. I tried changing to any available option and I found that 1280x768 operates with very little lag , comparable to my other monitor. Does this mean that this TV actually has a 5:3 native aspect ratio? What I want to know is, is there any way to get 1080p to happen with the same small amount of lag as 1280x768, or perhaps if there is a way I can use a higher resolution in 5:3 ratio? Do Nvidia/Intel based machines have this issue?
 

A:1080p TV display latency in 16:9?

It's not a PC (ie: nVidia or Intel) issue. It's a TV issue. This is a common problem when using TV's as a monitor. Most TV's suffer from the same problem. They aren't designed to function for your intended use. Hence the reason monitors cost more than a comparable sized TV, even though a TV has additional hardware to meet it's function (as a TV).

Hi, lately I have this problem with full HD movies.When I watch them it has these intermittent stops and pixalations specialy if the frame has lots of details and light.I use VLC player 2.1, freshly installed , I have ati radeon hd 4500 with 512ram.Maybe I should mention that I never had this problem before.Thanks in advance.

A:Can't whatch 1080p movies

Hello mobius101, please fill up the rest of your system specs using this tutorial:-

System Info - See Your System Specs

Have you tried playing the video on an alternative media player like Media Player Classic HC to see whether the problems occur?

:: MPC-HC ::
You also mention that you're using VLC 2.1 which is a nightly version (beta) and not the latest stable version which is VLC 2.0.2.
VideoLAN - Download official VLC media player for Windows
Try switching back to the latest stable version and see whether that rectifies your issue.
Hope that helps.

Hi Guys,

I get really confused when it comes to upscaling.

First I'll give you my CPU/GPU specs.

2.6ghz Core 2 Duo (wolfdale)
Nvidia GeForce 9800GTX (512mb)

I have to say I am very pleased with this video card, and it runs much cooler than the ati 4870.

Anyway, here's my question(s):

I'd like any videos I watch to be upscaled to 1080p. Right now my my current monitor is 1680x1050 max resolution, but I'll soon be getting a new one that supports full 1080p aka 1920x1080.

What are some settings I should be using in FFDShow so that I can achieve a good upscaling?

I have heard many things and I get confused - I heard that it is a good idea to resize to a resolution higher than 1080p, and then the video card will downscale it to 1080p, and that this is better than simply resizing to 1080p in the first place.

What about all the other settings in ffdshow - are there any ones that will improve quality? Or is there a better decoder than ffdshow?

Another other question is this : Is the FFDShow upscaling better than what my video card would do?

I also have begun to use orb, a program that streams media to any location with internet. I can set it to use ffdshow to do the encoding - so I'd like it to do the 1080p upscaling before streaming it out.
Sorry for the jumbled mess of questions. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks
