I have repeatedly manually changed the refresh rate to 60 and the resolution to 1280 X 768 (I tried other resolutions to, and all with 60Hz), but upon reboot it keeps loading ?? resolution at 85HZ.
I upgraded from an ATI 850 which had one VGA and one DVI. The DVI was connnected to the HP and after I got a Sharp 45" LCD TV, that was connected via the analog VGA. It worked fine but I wanted a faster card with 2 DVI. Now I cant even get a picture on either one once the windows screen is done loading. Is there anyone who knows how to make sure the PC is set to a compatible resolution and refresh rate?
Thanks in advance.
I have a:
ASRock Dual 939 MB
eVGA 8800 GTS Card
2 Gigs of RAM
I have almost the same setup. I upgraded from an X800XTPE to an 8800 GTX. I also have an ASRock Dual 939 MB w/ 2 Gigs of RAM.
I use the DVI out to the LC2600N with zero problems.
This is a case of user error at its finest.
Did you read the manual? You must have 'Digital PC' input selected in the LC2600N's Menu when using DVI.
Have you set the input on the LC2600N for 'Digital PC' input using the remote controls menu?
If you have, you will not see the 'Bios Screen' at bootup. But, you will see Windows once it loads.
If the LC2600N is still set for 'Analog PC' input, you will see the 'Bios Screen' and 'Windows in Safe Mode (Analog)' , but you will not see Windows using DVI (Digital).
Remember, the Bios screen is in 'Analog' and when using DVI the output is 'Digital'. So, once Windows loads and you are using DVI, you must use the LC2600N's Menu from the remote and change the input to 'Digital PC'. If you don't you will see nothing!!!
Since I use DVI(Digital) input, I switch back and forth between 'Analog PC' input and 'Digital PC' input a lot. Like anytime I need to access the Bios or Windows Safe Mode(Analog).
By the way, I use 1368x768 using DVI with the LC2600N set to 1:1 and it looks amazing. Text, 720P & 1080P Movies, and all my games look incredible.
