Samsung SA950 and SA750 Owners Club - Page 63

post #621 of 1741
Hello guys!

I have recently bought SA950D Monitor. Can anyone help me with this issue with the display port? i have Asus GTX 570 DC II connected with the monitor but it seems i cant get any display as i switch cables from DVI-D or HDMI port. DVI-D and HDMI port are fine. Is it my display port cable won't work? but it works using DP-HDMI-DVI adapter connected to the monitor. I use this DP cable v1.1. Do i need version 1.2?
http://manhattan-products.com/en-US/products/9164-displayport-monitor-cable
Standards and Certifications
UL 20276
DisplayPort v1.1

Connectors
(2) DisplayPort 20-pin male with latches
Nickel plated
Molded PVC boot

Cable
28 AWG conductors
Shielding: aluminum and Mylar braid
Withstanding voltage: 300 V DC
Insulation resistance: 5 MOhms
Contact resistance: 10 Ohms
PVC jacket


When i start my PC and boot, it will display a red box for the bios menu but no graphics and text displayed. Also for my Hackintosh, it will display White box for the boot. And when it enters the OS (Win7/Mac OSX) its black out...no more display....Is my SA950 DP has defect?

I also try connecting the DP cable and plugging off the power cord for 30sec. but seems same problem happens.

Thanks!

I had alot of problems with DP too. I used the install CD to install DP when I was connected with DVI. I had both DVI and DP connected and installed the driver this way. It was the only way to get it working. When you use the CD you can install DP driver, HDMI driver, and DVI driver for your monitor. Good luck and for the other questions try a different fourm. Because you will get banned here for talking about it.

My monitor is also sagging. It has dropped .5cm and I have owned it for 7 months now (bought it 6th of July for $1,099 NZD/ $861 USD...yes computer hardware here is VERY expensive). A real shame for the amount of money I spent on this monitor, expecting to be able to use it for at least 5 years minimum. At the moment I have a Piercing Antiseptic Lotion bottle holding it up which fitted perfectly. It does bug me seeing it there but I am afraid that the sag will only get worse.

EDIT: Wow. The Newegg picture has a sag too.

Hey guys, Decided to join the community. Say hello to my brand new S23A750D. Gotta love this 23" monitor.

Thing is, I've got a 6990, and it doesn't have any full sized DP ports... Scratched my head and googled, viola! answer from the heavens would be this: http://estore.circuitassembly.com/products/Mini-Displayport-to-Displayport-Adapter-Cable.html?revpage=4#reviews A DP to Mini DP cable. Now i've read about people using it and it working great, and the tech specs of the cable shows that it should handle 120hz @ 1080p fine.

So I ordered it, got it hooked up, everything's perfectly displayed. smile.gifExcept for the fact that i'm still stuck at 60hz.

I tried rolling back mg 12.1 preview drivers to 11.8, then to 11.2 but nothing. Downloaded the monitor drivers from samsung and choose the DIsplay port version, still nothing.

Catalyst reports the maximum reported refresh rate I got is 60hz.(My digital flat panels) :/
Windows also only reports the same thing. 60, 59, 56, 50, 30, 29 , 25 , 24 , 23 hz.

In the OSD under information, it says
DisplayPort
67.5kHz 60Hz
1920x1080


....what should I do? I'm at a loss.

TIA to all those who could help.

thanks for this info. i install the driver from my CD that comes with my monitor, wow! it works! but my problem is it does not display my BIOS menu when booting. it only display when i'm inside OS windows 7. sadly, i have boot manager installed but it will not display with DP. I cannot chose which OS i like to boot. DP is useless.
post #628 of 1741
so I just added the monitor driver ... prior i was using just a generic PNP ..

I feel like colors and monitor maybe a little clearer

but I feel like it has increased my monitor response time... it seems like BF3 is slower... maybe it's just in my head... axesmiley.png

You have your monitor driver installed ? Video driver and monitor driver are two different things.
