I've tried with and without the viewsonic monitor driver - it doesn't seem to fix the problem. Still says "Out of Range"Polish Ninja said:So far it seems like all of us having trouble with the fixed aspect ratio option are running Nvidia 7x00 series cards with the latest drivers. I guess a couple things to try would be
1. Use an old card with new drivers.
2. Use a new card with old drivers.
Maybe we can get it narrowed down to either a driver issue or a hardware compatibility thing with newer Nvidia cards.
edit: I'll also try the above two options with and without the Viewsonic drivers installed and report back this afternoon.
I know what you mean !!Polish Ninja said:Well fixed aspect ratio works with my GF4 ti200 but not with my 7800gt or 7900gtx with old or new drivers. wtf.
It was too bright for me right out of the box. I have contrast at 60, and brightness at 50.Wushuboy said:What monitor settings do you use? I noticed that it's maxed out on brightness and contrast. Does this monitor require any tweaking to maximize it's potential?
Then you say that "Monitor Scaling" has the same result as "Fixed Aspect Ratio"...????LordBritish said:I was afriad that my 7900 GTX was busted because I couldn't do "Fixed Aspect Ratio" scaling with my vx2025wm.
In fact the only option that works for me is "Monitor Scaling".
So my 7900 GTX is OK?
No, i'm saying that anything other than "Monitor Scaling" results in a black screen with the words "Out of Range" in the middle.Mangavin said:Then you say that "Monitor Scaling" has the same result as "Fixed Aspect Ratio"...????
Yes, no trouble with your card
I was impulsive and bought mine from Fry's little over a month ago at $497.99. I was furious to say the least when they lowered the price after their 30 day return policy. I ended calling anyways to see if I can get some compensation. They ended up offering me $53 in store credit...AceCurby99 said:I'm in the club!
My local fry's had it for $450 w/ a $50 mail in rebate! This thing is AWESOME. My first Widescreen and my first LCD and now I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to get one!
No dead pixels and the backlight bleeding is almost non-exsistant! Thanks for this thread - ya'll helped me make my decision and I think I got a pretty good price too. I'm bout to load up EVE and check it out on this thing...
(If you guys want pics, I'll post them - but there seems to be tons of them up here already!)
