What, they didn't support EDID?
No, the 109s has an EDID with a minimum frequency of 75Hz on Windows 7.
But for a resolution of 1600x1200, the screen can only go up to 70Hz.
At 75Hz, the image displayed on the screen but is brown and blackened edges.

Again thank you for using your tutorial!

Help

Hi, I just got the Samsung LCD SynyMaster 2233RZ 120hz. The monitor came with a DVI-DL link but my laptop that I want to connect it to does not support DVI. I went ahead and bought a DVI-D to HDMI Cable. It won't let me surpass 60hz when I try to change the refresh rate. I tried following this guide but it seems so confusing. Can anyone help?

That limitation is entirely imposed by your adapter. You should be able to override any mangled EDID information and choose the resolution and refresh rate you desire by following the instructions in this tutorial.

Is there anyway to restore default settings? When I tried using this guide I was careless and experimented with the wrong things.

Press F8 while rebooting and select low res or 640x480 mode. Then uninstall the custom monitor driver using device manager.

Change to CRT

So I went ahead and plugged my old CRT in that i KNOW gets 100hz on 1024x768. I ran through all the directions correctly and when I restart it shows in drop-down menu that I have the ability to put it to a 100hz. But once I click apply my screen says out of range/frequency? I know for a fact it has something to do with my computer not the monitor itself. Any ideas?

Without using the modified monitor driver you created as a product of running through the tutorial, what were the capabilities reported by the monitor? From you recent posts it appears that there are at least two monitors in question here, an "old" CRT, a SyncMaster 2233RZ and maybe something else. The SyncMaster supports only DVI but a true DVI to HDMI adapter cable should work just fine supposing that it is straight wired owing to the fact that the digital video signal carried by HDMI is identical to that carried by DVI-D. I'd verify the SyncMaster's performance on a computer with native DVI and make a technical inquiry about your adapter cable. What does MonInfo claim are your SyncMaster's capabilities and how do they differ from 1) what you want and 2) what Windows is reporting? I've seen some interference from "over-configured" graphics adapter drivers so that might be worth looking at -- later ATI Catalyst drivers allow you to reset the driver settings to their factory defaults.

Your monitor reports supporting 1024 x 768p at 100Hz - VESA STD so you shouldn't need to use this tutorial at all if you want to display that timing. You'll need to open advanced settings from screen resolution control panel and choose from the "list all modes" on the adapter tab.
