Problems viewing ANY movies or files on Asus MW221U BLK 22" wide 2ms VGA LCD monitor

posted in General

I’m using a P3.0GHZ socket478 PC with ATI 9600 radeon 128mb graphics card, 2GB Dual Channel RAM. The graphics card has a VGA and DVI-D connector.

I was using Samsung Syncmaster 710N 17” LCD monitor on a VGA connector. Today I bought a new 22” LCD monitor - Asus MW221U BLK 22inch WIDE 2MS DVI/VGA,Tilt, Speakers HDCP Support. I changed my view to 1680x1050 for my desktop. My gfx card has VGA and DVI-D, but i connected the dvi-d, there was no output on the monitor. So I connected my monitor’s normal VGA to PC and the windows and stuff looks fine. When I play movies in DVD quality, it seems to be lousier than viewing on my previous 17” monitor, some of the pixels looks weird as if it was a pirated movie..

Can someone help me, not sure what settings else i need to do or is my gfx card too low end for this monitor. reply

Are the dots in the same locations consistantly? If so sounds like dead Pixels. If not then yes, it could be the vid card. What Card are you running?
Have you considered that the card may be overheating, check the temps. If they are fine it probably isn’t artifacting and will be fine. Most likely dead pixels though by the sounds of it.

Its looks a bit more colorful but I think 22 inchs is a bit to small so I sgegust -Save your money a bit longer so that you can get a bigger one-Dont buy it and stick with your LCD Monitor because if you can see your game then its good enough-Dont buy it and buy some games instead with your hard earned cash-Dont buy it and save your money for something betterI was thinking about this for a long time myself but I waited a bit longer until I was sure and I was happy with my decision .To keep my money. reply
