Windows 7: An irritating issue with my Samsung SyncMaster 214t monitor

18 Jul 2011   #11

Win 7 Ult SP1/Win 10 Pro (all x64)

According to the user manual resolution and frequency settings are controlled by the graphics card, but as Samsung don't have Windows 7 (or Vista) drivers maybe it's time to upgrade the monitor as obviously Windows thinks it's a generic monitor.

Luckily, I do have another monitor (NEC MultiSync LCD2170NX) that I was using as a display for my laptop. The NEC sports the same screen size as the Samsung 214T. From the moment I slapped the NEC on my system, I've had no problem with the monitor. So, I've made the NEC as my primary and I'll still use the Samsung just as my right hand screen (I'm using dual screens now). That way the Samsung won't be a waste.

I have also seen this problem when using DVI-VGA adapters and some KVM's not passing on though the monitor EDID.

I got around this by manually installing a random Monitor Driver that had the supported res. (no idea what i used anymore)

Glad you have a work around and yes there is probably something to that DVI-VGA adapter theory.
