Windows 7: Resolution

20 Sep 2009   #11


It might be the adapter itself that is causing the problems. Since he TV has only a standard VGA input, it can be used as a monitor, but with it being an LCD HDTV, I'd probably use the HDMI input instead.

As for drivers, though....that is a tough one....

Windows 7 Build 7100

Ahh, ok. So I will go grab an HDMI cable from Wal-Mart or something. If I grab that, do you think I will be able to push a better resolution? Or am I pretty SOL until October or until they release a driver. This worked fine on XP . Also it has a VGA slot on the card as well, would it work any better if I used that?

OK, from the users manual:

Connecting to a PC (Personal Computer)

Before you connect this TV/DVD to your PC, change the adjustment of your PC’s Resolution and Refresh rate (60 Hz).

Connect one end of a (male to male) VGA cable to the video card of the computer and the other end to the VGA connector PC MONITOR on the rear of the TV/DVD. Attach the connectors firmly with the screws on the plug. In case of a Multimedia computer,
connect the audio cord to the audio output of your Multimedia computer and to the AUDIO connector of the PC AUDIO IN jack of the TV/DVD.

Select “PC” by pressing INPUT repeatedly.

Switch on the computer. The TV/DVD can operate as the computer monitor

Monitor Display modes

MODE Resolution Refresh rate
VGA 640x480 60Hz
VGA 720x400 70Hz
SVGA 800x600 60Hz
XGA 1024x768 60Hz
WXGA 1280x768 60Hz
WXGA 1280x720 60Hz
WXGA 1360x768 60Hz

To return to normal mode

Note: Press INPUT again.

The on-screen displays will have a different appearance in PC mode than in TV mode.
If there is no video signal from the PC when the unit is in PC mode, “No signal” will appear on the TV/DVD-screen.

If your video card has HDMI capability, I'd at least *try* that to see if Windows will recognize the TV - also, you might try a different DVI --> VGA adapter as not all of them transfer the full information - there are actually 3 different types of DVI connectors, see Digital Visual Interface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia for more information.

A link to the product manual (page 16 or so was where I copied the above from):

Ok I will go grab an HDMI cord now. I just tried to connect it without the DVI adapter onto the VGA port on my card, I got no signal whatsoever. I might try to grab another DVI adapter if they are cheap. Thanks for all the help man, and sorry about earlier. If you think of anything else, please leave it here and I will check it as soon as I return.

You really need to conect it through DVI->HDMI, in order to get an EDID dump and sort things out.
If that is not possible, you can try this custom driver (attached). Added 1680x1050 (16:10) detailed timings as native resolution, if it does not work 1360x768 is provided as a fall-back. Also test 1280x720. Every resolution should be setup on 60Hz only!
Use tsb_dvi.inf if you connect it through DVI/HDMI, and tsb_vga.inf for the VGA port.

Do it at your own risk, I do not know the Monitor Range Limits for your device so I had to improvise.

Hello Waka, and welcome to Seven Forums.

After you extracted the .ini files from the ZIP file, you would right click on each .ini file one at a time, and click on Install to do so.

Be warned though. Do not do this unless you have the exact same monitor, or you risk serious damage to your monitor.
