Samsung SyncMaster 2033W TFT Resolution problem


I had recently bought Samsung SyncMaster 2033 TFT 20'' monitor but it is giving me resolution problem. I am not able to adjust resolution for this monitor as my Displey settings only showing 5 resolutions i.e - 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x720, 1280x768 and 1360x768. I had tried windows vista and windows 7 but getting same problem. I had already tried to create custom resolution from nvidia control panel but it gives me the message - Custom resolution is not supported by your monitor.

I am not getting higher screen resolution like 1600x900 etc which are supported by this monitor..

I have nvidia 9800GT graphics card, windows 7 64bit..

can any1 plz help me on this issue ?

waiting eagerly for reply..

  4. There may be a setting in the advanced Nvidia control panel for resolution that is putting a cap on your windows resolution. I had that happen once with my ATI control center.
  5. Try un-installing the drivers, reboot then reinstalling.

    This fixed a fuzzy text issue with my HTPC.
  6. which driver jaguarskx ? Monitor or Gcard ?

  9. I still think the issue is with your Nvidia control panel. It can put a resolution cap on the windows display resolution. Depending on your version of Nvidia's control panel, it will look similar to this

  11. can any1 help me on this ??
  12. I don't know what else it could be. Everything I see on that model says it supports 1600x900.

    I would try a different monitor and see if you can get the higher resolution. If yes, it's the monitor.
  13. well, i am too suffering from the problem........

    after when i got it fixed, the problem was solved but my resolution became low..1.e 1280 x 1024
    the same probs that your pc is showing, im not able to configure the problem.
    i guess its the monitor who is having the problem.
    when i had XP 64 bit installed, i was able to add custom resolution to 1680 x 1050, but when i installed Windows 7, i am not able to install any custom resolution. i have installed all latest drivers, but still im getting the same probs.
    i have 8600 GE nvidia graphic card
    and 2043nwx monitor.....
    can anybody give any solution
  14. whe ni go to 1900x1440x32 on the same nonitor ...... it gives me a "not optimum mode" message and the damn thing stays there for about a minute..... is there anyway i can disable that message
