monitor refresh rate

G'day experts,

I think I have damaged my monitor. I was using a ATI all-in-wonder, and was using the televison display and monitor simultaneously. apparently, the refresh rate for the monitor and television displays is set are set to 50hz, but some monitor's don't support this refresh rate. from the documentation that came with my fujitsu-siemens C17-2 the refresh rate I was on was 60hz. and i don't think it supports a refresh rate of 50hz.....

my monitor isn't working today (no power), so I am guessing it may be damaged due to the refresh rate palaver.

1. could this be the cause of the monitor's problem.
2. how do I fix this the monitor
3. in case i need to buy a new monitor, please recommend the best monitors that support this refresh rate (50hz).


thank you.

If your monitor supports 60hz then it supports 50 hz.  However it would not support anything above 60hz at a certain resolution.  The higher is what your monitor would not support not lower.  It is the opposite of what you are thinking.  50hz is much slower then 60hz.  Where as 70hz is faster then 60hz.  

>>. could this be the cause of the monitor's problem
that is not your problem.

if you have made sure that it is not the video card then I would just buy a new monitor.  You can get very good CRT monitors for 150-200 dollars.  The cost of repairing monitors usually is about the same as buying a new one.  CRT monitors average life span is about 4 to 5 years.   So having one go out is not a big thing.

I just recently purchased a Samsung SyncMaster 955DF and I really like it.  It gives me good high refresh rates and a wide range of resolutions.



Before you purchase a new monitor have you made sure that your video card did not go out instead of the monitor?   There is a chance that your video card has went out.  You should, if you can, put another monitor on your computer and make sure the video is still working.
