Monitor Freq

I have a Samsung SAMTRON 50E (15") monitor.. it doesn't have a problem... But with the new nVidia driver, it sees to be able to work on much higher freq, like 100hz on 1024... and it can even do 1154 but on 60 Hz.. I know that the max the monitor is supposed to do is 75hz on 1024.. I've put it on that.. but I wouldn't mind increasing.. will it damage the monitor if i do?

My KDS 19" monitor will refuse to run at a speed higher than the specs. The NVIDIA drivers will sometimes show all of the rates of the card without taking the monitor into account. Looking at the attached you can see that you can tell the drives not to show rates the monitor will not handle.........

60, 70, 72, 75, 85, 100, 120. these are the only values that xp uses for monitor refresh rates. so, say, if your monitor is capable of doing 98hz at a certain resolution, the max xp will let you do is 85hz.

for instance, my monitor is capable of 118hz at 1024x768. i used to only be able to choose 100hz, but with NVRT 2.01, i can select any refresh rate value i want. when i'm in a game menu at 640x480, my monitor is doing a cool 170hz. :cool:

it's just a matter of finding your monitor's absolute max refresh rates. but, yes.. going above that at all will most likely cause damage sooner or later.

thanx... i guess I'll keep it at 75hz then... but does anyone have any idea why with the new drivers the monitor can even do such high refresh rates... coz I'm pretty sure with 30.72, when I bput 1024X32X85 I'd get a black screen and wait 15sec to get it back.. but now it works... why??

If you go above what the screen can handle, it will look all messed up (or say "out of synch"). It's above this you supposedly could cause damage. As long as the picture is stable there is no danger. Keep it as high as possible to go easy on the eyes.
