Windows 7: Bad Quality

Bad Quality

Hi,

I just got a new HD Mointor (Samsung 2333SW) but im experiencing even worse quality for films and games than my old Standard Def mointor.

1. On bootup the screen has a thick black border around the writing and startup logo, never before

2. Even though my other screen wasnt widescreen and this is the black bars have gone, every crop/video setting doesnt make a difference in VLC, changes no quality or video size

3. Dark sections of a film have grain, little dots flying everywhere my other screen is perfect

I just unplugged my old monitor and plugged the new one in and it seemed to installed the drivers for me I can see it in device manager.

Any ideas for any of the issues?

go into device manager and go to displays, click on your video card and right click, go to properites and see if it installed and working. Is there a yellow triangle on th device, or is there any other "unknown device" with a yellow triangle on them?

Are you using the monitors native resolution? 1920x1080 Unless it has been fixed, VLC is performing badly on Windows 7, esp in quality of video.

Yes, in the mointor settings it says. 60Hz 1920x1080. Videos look only about 5% in WMM
