GDM 1950 Monitor

Hi yes it can be used but as it is fixed frequency you would have to set your windows to 1280 x 1024 @ 60Hz refresh. It has to be the 5 BNC input type, the problem which arises is that during pc boot when the windows graphics drivers are not installed the picture would not be locked, therefore should the pc fail to boot you would not be able to see why, unless your card can set dos modes to 1280 x 1024 at the correct refresh rate you would also need to be able to set the sync pulse polarities both in dos and windows. heres a link for the spec www.griffintechnology.com/monitor.html
search for GDM-1950.

Best Regards

I also need to know how to change the H Freq. and the V Freq. in Windows 2000 with a STB Velocity 128, either software or through hardware.

Greetings,

I ran across a Web site that offers two solutions to your problem.

They say
"Because this monitor does not accept seperate sync, it requires at least our sync converter to display any picture on a PC or Mac with a standard video card. Because this monitor is not VGA frequency compatible, you can't just plug it in to a normal video card (even with our sync converter) and expect it to work normally on a PC or Mac. On a PC for example, even with our sync converter, you could notsee DOS boot screens, windows safe mode, or certain games using a normal video card. With our video cards (which come with a sync converter), this monitor will display a picture at all resolutions up to the monitors maximum resolution. . We explain your options for video cards and cables below."

Cut and paste this link:

REMOVE SPACES if any snuck into the pasted URL.

They do, however, offer solutions.

Solution 1:
One of our fixed frequency video cards and the proper cable.

Solution 2:
Your video card and the proper cable.

See that link for the whole story.

Good luck,

Maxwell
