7600GT and LCD ripples

I just got a widescreen LCD monitor. 21.6" viewable.

When I connected my 7600gt VGA to VGA, the monitor displayed everything normal at its native res except for a wave/ripple effect moved from top to bottom of the screen. There was also a "shaky" effect to those ripples.
This only happen at the native res of the monitor. I can easily set the res to lower then native and those effects do not appear, however, it looks very crapy :kaola:

I tested the monitor with my xbox360 1080i and it worked... so I am guessing its the video card.

Has anyone got a solution so I would not have to replace the card?
Supposedly the card can handle much higher res then my native one.


Thank you for help!

  1. What is the brand and refresh rate of the monitor?

    Hanns
    refresh rate 60hz(could NOT be changed)
  3. I'm sorry, I meant to say Response Time in milliseconds. (I got them confused, lol)
    What games did you experience this in? also, did you experience the ripples in the desktop?

    np :kaola:

    it has a 5ms response time.
    I experienced the ripple/wave(makes the screen look shaky and unstable) on desktop and when I watched a video. Pretty much everywhere.
  5. I know its hard to imagine what i'm saying, so I took a small clip of the LCD monitor problem and posted it on youtube.
    Here are 2 clips
    This is exactly how the screen looks like. notice the wave effect.

  6. Try to reset the monitor to factory default settings. If that doesn't work, I suggest an RMA - although, be warned that an RMA from HannsG will take about a month...

    tried auto detection and factory defaults. still no good :(
  8. Do you have onboard video? Or another monitor that can handle the exact resolution of your current monitor? If the problem stops with either of these, it's your video card.

    I plugged in my onboard and it displayed flawlessly through anything I ran.

    It seems the video card is the culprit this time, which is good :P
    I wouldnt want to RMA that big monitor:)

    Thanks for your help - Il just be with my onboard for now, I play my xbox anyway :P
  11. Glad I could help. If you need advice getting a new videocard, let us know.

    great!

    So far Im using my computer for mostly internet and videos.
    Will my onboard nvidia 6100 be sufficient?

    What else can I look into?
  13. Do you have the Hanns G with the 4 USB ports on the right side?

    If so, you should definitely try using the DVI port. I use the DVI port and it always looks amazing. I use to have an 7600GT. Try an older driver, my fav was either the 93.71 or something.
  14. For internet and videos, an onboard 6100 is sufficient - I had one for over a year and it ran even Vista Aero flawlessly. For gaming on the other hand... well basically any game released in the past three years is either flatout not going to run or you'll have to run it on low detail/resolution so it looks like crap. If you're not going to play, though, it should be fine.

    If you do want to upgrade, tell me your budget and I'll let you know what the best deal is. 7600GT's are going to $60-70 nowadays.
