Windows 7: Samsung SyncMaster 2342BWX Driver Issue

The model code matches on both. I uninstalled, disconnected the bad monitor, rebooted, plugged it back in, and updated the bad monitors driver to match the good ones. I cant even set the screen refresh rate to 60 hertz like the other one. It goes back to 59 right after.

Hitting all the bases here, trying to help you get this going... You have refresh issue and still same resolution issue? or?

Have you doubled checked the internal menu on the "bad" monitor? Perhaps there is a setting you need to change... or make sure it matches other "good" monitor

I just wanna say thanks for all your help Darryl. Yep both resolution issue and refresh rate (not as big of a deal). I looked on the menus of both monitors (also reset to default). Only thing i noticed was on the old monitors menu it reads " 70.9 kHz 60Hz PN 2048x1152" and on the new "66.6kHz 60Hz PN 1920x1080". When in the display properties it says the new ones only running 59Hertz. Weird

Veritas32xL:

I'm sorry for not being clear... I meant the on screen menu, the one you get to by pushing the buttons on the monitor.

The "bad" monitor may be in demo mode or have different settings than the other good one... compare screen for screen through those menus! Was you new "bad" monitor a store display or an open box???

I will be gone all day (helping a friend mix concrete all day) but will check here later! Have Fun!

Yeah I checked the settings on the physical monitors. That's where I noticed the new one thinking its running 60Hz (where in windows it shows 59). And neither monitor had any weird settings. I added the pictures in my earlier post to give a idea of what its looking like windows also. It was one of the last new ones fry's had in stock.

Thanks!!

I went back to fry's which is 2 hours away. Exchanged for another and it works perfect. It was the monitor the whole time. They need to check these things before they send them out. Thanks Darryl for all your help!!!
