B1930NW - Image fuzzy and blown up problem

by Hawkness / June 9, 2011 7:56 PM PDT

I got this monitor recently and couldnt help noticing the change especially with the way the ups responded to it, it hardly complaines in brightly lit enviroments. It was like it never exists. I went to the kill-a-watt and it showed on magiceco 50% this display draws an unbelievable 15w with all colors visible. Its amazing in games! Let me not get started on Dirt 2.

Anyway there very many upsides to this TFT compared to my old M782P Dell CRT.

I dont mind that it doesnt have DVI for now but whats really disappointing is it has this potential of being sth really great but the general fuzziness of images washes down the excitement. At the 1440 X 900 resolution actually feels more like 1152 X 768 since the desktop icons all seem blown up, generally the picture is unusually big and fuzzy, same goes for the video but funny enough its clear on the M782P.

I have already been to samsung.com downloaded their latest driver and still nothing changed. Has anyone also experienced this, I really like samsung but I wouldnt want to end up changing to Dell ultrasharp. Has anyone managed to change this? Or is it just a plague on non-DVI screens?

Clarification and not answering
by Hawkness / June 13, 2011 6:47 PM PDT

Am really not answering my own question, I just cant find any other reply button that I can use to clarify my present findings. Anyway I tracked the problem to my graphics card 8800gt but am not sure it really is the one coz this site (http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/)claims its not providing the native resolution, what can I do? Some help here please!

Thank you for your reply, I was starting to feel helpless since no one was replying.
I'll surely give your suggestion a try. I still love samsung especially that this thing is actually consuming 15w

The problem has been lessened by using updated graphics card drivers, it turns out the b1930nw has a big pixel pitch hence the fuzziness, I'll try looking into the b2230 unless anyone else has had similar experience with this one, I would like to know how good the b2230 is. So anyone?!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
