External Monitor Problem: Samsung 226BW - Acer Aspire 4390g, Nvidia 9300 256mb HDMI out

    Dotaz

  • Hi.

    Odd one this - the HDMI (DVI) doesn't detect the monitor correctly - lists it as a Generic Non PNP monitor with corresponding resolutions. VGA out and in works fine (except shaky picture that I don't like) - native res is 1680x1050 at 60hz.

    Tried - manually setting the res (only goes to 1200x720), and windows update to get a new driver. One is available; but then error

    WindowsUpdate_800F020B

    Which says - try emailing customer support.

    (also had problems with vista and this setup on two identical monitors and laptops - but upgraded to win7rc1 as it is so much better)

    Next step?

    Thanks for reading,

  • So plugged back in the VGA and the update installed.

    Samsung - Display - SyncMaster 226BW(Analog)

    Details: "Installation date: ‎02/‎09/‎2009 20:01

    Installation status: Successful

    Update type: Optional

    Samsung Display software update released in October, 2006

    So - now - the HDMI/DVI gives no picture at all - and the monitor flashes irritatingly - when the HDMI cable is inserted it no longer beeps.

  • Hi,

    This problem is caused by the display card driver. You can try the latest display card driver:

  • Thanks for the suggestion (installed 64bit driver) - unfortunately this didn't resolve the problem - the Nvidia control now displays though.

    Also the same problem exists on a samsung 2233sw monitor as well.

    Greetings, I have the answer to the cause of your problem.

    This monitor has a faulty EDID. It's a chip on the monitor read by the computer that informs the PC of which resolutions it can use, amongst other things.

    This EDID tells the computer that the max res 1280 x 1024, so doesnt matter what driver you use, you cannot set it higher.

    Samsung won't help either, they keep blaming "windows" or "your GPU is too old" (latest model)  etc...  just light the thing on fire and forget about it and never buy another Samsung product again.
