Should I keep my old CRT, or buy a new LCD? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I have my CRT still, I use it for a 2nd screen when I need it, otherwise it's off to save power. A LCD is pretty nice though for gaming visuals.

Well that is necessarily not possible. I know my low end viewpoint CRT (17", offers 1920x1440 @ 60hz, 1600x1200 @ 75hz, 1280x1024 @*85hz) can't do any resolution above 85hz. It just won't do it. The monitor can't do above 85hz no matter what...

It's possible, you just don't know how to create and edit personal drivers

Lemme find the guide.

Disabling EDID should do just that.

The CRT locks up at anything above 85hz. Doesn't produce an image.

EDIT: Really, don't bother to find a guide. I can't even trust it on my desk because it's too heavy. That will not help me too much, so don't bother.

Using a DVI >Analog adapter w/ EDID pins disabled would also lock my monitor lol.

I found a few tools on the internet that allowed me to create custom drivers which in return allowed the monitor to scale up to it's true max vertical and horizontal frequencies.

EDIT: I think this is the thread.

Calculate the max Hz @ any resolution based on factory CRT specs.

Note: Ignore the above links if you're using an LCD.
