Newbie flat screen monitor question

Discussion in 'Electronic Equipment' started by Dot Net Developer, Apr 17, 2007.

  1. My old computer monitor was tube based, and on my graphics card I set
    the refresh rate as high as possible because that produced a less
    flickery image.

    My new monitor is flat screen LCD, and my graphics card reports that
    it only supports 60hz refresh rate. This seems unusually low, but is
    this perfectly normal for this type of monitor?

    Thanks, regards, dnw.

  3. Just as an aside to the original question, it is possible to get into a
    situation where you cannot see the display as the monitor refuses to display
    faster refresh rate signals (Xerox 22" in my own case) and you need to use a CRT
    screen to be able to set the rates before returning to the TFT/LCD unit.

    Some DOS setups are similarly problematical.
