No EDID

Craig Coope

I;m still trying to figure out why my Samsung Syncmaster win't give me
DVI...anyway...

The monitor doesn't display and EDID or DDC info..and it gets detected
as a CRT using Omega drivers for my X1950 Pro...

Is any of this normal?

What happens when you use the ATI CCC drivers?

Ok well I have looked around the settings more...

I'm not sure if it is using EDID because it is saying my monitor's max
res is 1600X1200 which is wrong as it is 1680x1050 (this caused me no
end of trouble when I first got the monitor).

Under CCC there is no mention of DDC as far as I can see.

Under Omega it says there is no DDC and my TFT is really a CRT.

I have my monitor connected using a vga cable with a DVI adaptor on
the PC end....

Ever tried the monitor drivers from Samsung's web site?


Back in 2004, there was a fiasco with the Samsung 191T, where the monitor's
EDID info when connected via DVI, was erroneously programmed by Samsung to
show an analog monitor. It is possible your 226BW is afflicted with the same
problem.

However, there are few utilities that will read/write the EDID of a monitor
connected via DVI. Dell has a utility, but it only runs on nVidia cards. Do
you or any of your friends have an nVidia card?
Sorry for all the tpyos!

As long as the first and last letters of each word, and the length of each
word, are correct, the human mind will interpolate the rest. This works for
about 55% of the people. :)

Why aren't you using a dvi cable ?

Yeah I have done this...however this is the stupid part. Once I have
done it I then "update" the driver and let Windows do it for me it
actually removes the Samsung driver and chucks in a bog-standard
Windows one!

Yeah I have heard of this but to be honest right now my Monitor is
about to be swapped out for a replacement. Right now I'm just asking
questions incase the new Monitor acts the same way. I really hope this
monitor is actually broken...I'd hate to have to sort out a
driver/hardware conflict :blush:(

Because my monitor isn't accepting anything through its DVI
port....and I don't have a dvi - vga adaptor...they are all male...

He means he is using the VGA cable now, after finding that a DVI connection
doesn't work.

Sorry that was my fault...I have left a few posts in here about my DVI
problem...I don't know why I assumed everyone would have read them...

That doesn't work!...You're supposed to have the first and last
letters in the right place....

Correct ... and it also implies that words with three letters
cannot be messed with.

Why can't they? The middle letter would appear to be fair game unless
there is another rule.

The interpolation theory applies when the first/last letters remain
intact and only letters *between* them are switched around. In a
three letter word, there is no other letter in the word to switch
the middle letter around with.

It wasn't stated that the intervening letters may only be transposed,
not substituted.

Then maybe you're using words I don't know.

I took "As long as the first and last letters of each word, and the
length of each word, are correct, the human mind will interpolate the
rest. This works for about 55% of the people" and modified it
according to the rules contained therein.
What are:
larg

"long" with the "a" and "r" substituted for "o" and "n"

"each" with "a" and "c" transposed and "l" substituted for "c"

"and" with "r" substituted for "n"

"the" with "i" and "r" substituted for "h"

"rest" with "a" and "p" substituted for "e" and "s"
I won't go on.....

The fact that even with the paragraph from which it was derived there
as an example, you were unable to recognize the altered version
suggests that either there is something wrong with the theory or that
the rules as stated were incomplete.
