Fixed it - bought a new KVM

Got a new, better KVM and the monitor were identified by all the OSs. Thre TRENDNET USB KVM, bought from TigerDirect through Amazon (shipping costs were lower that way) works perfectly and supports up to 4 PCs.

Thanks!

Hello all!
I joined this forum a few days ago, never really been active in a windows forum but see now where it is very important for me.
When I joined I had been pulling my hair out for days trying to get my 42"LCD to work with Windows 7. But my thinking was I had a software or ATI issue, the more hair I lost the more it looked like a Windows issue. So I finally, after hooking up my old 19" LCD (windows Vista certified too) came here to look and see if somebody else has this issue as I didn't see a proper place or thread for mine. I then saw gadgets found this thread, and realized why my Insignia 42" LCD monitor wasn't working(I assume cause of the EDID thing). Just by reading the first few postings made me use the windows adjustment to the display and BOOM finally!!!
Thank you for the help!!!
Me so happy!
Also Thank you for a great forum!I tried to add rep to the OP but it won't let me?

Locked Refresh Rate: Ati 5850 + CRT Syncmaster 1100MB ?

Hello all. I have the same problem... Itīs the complete panic!
I bought new hardware (mobo,cpu,ram,Ssd,Case) and instaled windows 7 64 bits, because now I have 4gb of Ram. I also have an ATI 5850, a big Samsung Syncmaster 1100MB CRT, connected trough a DVI - VGA Adapter. When I was with Windows 7 32bits the 10.2 Catalyst worked fine, although when I tried to install 10.3 Driver the resolution locked at 1024x800. So I rolled back to 10.2 and everything was fine, I decided to wait for a new driver to update.
But now I have windows 7 64 bits and tried with 10.3 and there are some resolutions available, but with a maximum refresh rate of 60hz! I used Drive Sweeper and tried the 10.2, the 10.4 Preview, tried changing windows Registry, tried ATI Tray Tools, and NOTHING WORKS! My eyes are hurting and so is my head with all this. Are CRT banned from ATI Drivers from now on? Should I install 32bits (and lose the 4gb Ram possibility)? Can someone please help me?
Many thanks in advance.

Have you tried hooking a small monitor(at the same time) to the computer, to adjust it? This helped me, I then went in to CCC adjusted the big screen resolution by right clicking on it in "desktops and displays" then hitting "config" it offers me what I needed. I can run over 60Hrz now, it has nothing to do with 64 bits or four gigs of mem. After right clicking on the monitor it allows me to adjust or force any resolution I need, I then chose the large LCD as my primary(desktop).
Just using driver sweeper will not be enough you will still have to go into the windows folders on the"C" drive, then find the "system32" folder and remove any ATI files that are still there. I also go on the "C" remove any ATI folder let over from using the ATI install/remove method before using the sweeper.
Hope this helps you out!

Problem Solve. Thanks anyway

My problem is solved, finally. I just followed this tutorial:

  1. Download Phoenix.zip and extract it to a working folder.
  2. Run it and click the registry toolbar button.
  3. Click the pencil toolbar button for edit mode.
  4. Change the EDID settings to reflect you display's true capabilities
  5. Pay special attention to the Standard Timings tab.
  6. Detailed Timing blocks 2-4 provide some very interested additional options.
  7. Save the EDID to a .DAT file in the working folder.
  8. Download moninfo.exe and install it.
  9. Open the saved .DAT with MonInfo and make sure it doesn't complain about it
  10. If it does post here for help
  11. If MonInfo reads in an displays the settings the way you configured them in Phoenix then...
  12. Select Create INF... from the file menu and save it to the working folder.
  13. Feel free to edit the strings in the INF to your liking.
  14. Open Start, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.
  15. Select the monitor you want to change, right click and select Update Driver Software
  16. Use the tried and true "Have Disk" method to select the INF and install it.
  17. Reboot and enjoy your new resolution!
