I'm lost when trying to change from CRT to TFT's.

I had an image on my TFT after just plugging it in but I tried to change the settings to 1280 x 1024 and got very lost. Any ideas??

Dave, You didn't state the o/s!
I use Win2000.
Start-up your pc then "F8" for Win2000, Which
starts it up in SAFE-MODE! then re-set your video!

Whoops - win 2K

Richard from DVC has contacted me and hopefully we can sort it out.
I should say that I'm happy with DVC - I've just bought another system from them for work.

Sorry this late. But I beleive there is a also a problem with Samusung's driver. It may not let you set the optimal screen size and settings for the Samsung. I have the 172V (I think) but it has problems getting to the maximum refresh rate. Just set it up as Plug and Play, 1024×768, 75Hz refresh.

WindowsUpdate should have a driver. If not, get the new one from Samsung.
