Sony Flat Panel
    #2619558 - 04/30/04 09:16 AM (18 years, 8 months ago)

Sony SDM-M51 Features:
15.1-inch viewable flat panel
Antiglare coating
Rich color processing
1,024 x 768 maximum resolution at 75 Hz
Removable tilt base

XP is telling me that the monitor does not support higher than 60 Hz refresh. I can uncheck the box ang get 75, but is this a bad idea?

60hz should be fine on a LCD, if it supports 75 tho, yea, bump it up. I dont think LCDs fry the same way CRTs do if the refresh is set wrong. If it does, just send it back n leave it at 60hz :tongue:

Try upgrading the driver for the monitor... 75 should appear one way or another.

Refresh rate doesn't matter on LCD flat panels, only on CRT's.

There is a notable difference between 60 and 75 though. For those of you unfamiliar with refresh rates, its the frequency (or interval) at which a monitor 'refreshes' or basically the time it takes to redraw the image on the monitor. If you're playing a graphically-intensive game with the best videocard, yet your monitor is an LCD at 60, the flickering image will be less than desirable.

Throw in a fluorescent (or incandescent?) light with the same frequency and your eyes will feel extremely weak and irritated within a short period of time. Try to keep the refresh rate at 75 if possible, anything 75+ will prevent most eye strain, but don't put your monitor at a setting it doesn't support as this may cause damage.

> anything 75+ will prevent most eye strain

Yes, this is why I wanted to run it at 75, I have read it cuts down on eyestrain.

It works fine at 75 hz, I just had to uncheck the box. I tried 85 hz, and I got an error "out of scan range"

Thanks for the help, appreciated  :thumbup:
