Default Re: Samsung SyncMaster 204B blackouts in DVI mode

Folks,

I have a 204b and an 8800GTS card. I recently upgraded to Vista (32) and installed the new 169.44 driver. When I was running XP Pro, I had made "CVT Reduced Blank" change and eliminated the blanking issues I had experienced.

Well, the blanking is back and I have searched for all possible ways to fix the problem and can't find any. I tried PowerStrip but the "Advanced timing options..." never highlighted so I could not select them. I even tried the 169.25 driver but no joy.

Does anyone have a solution for these new drivers? If not, I guess I will go buy and EVGA cable and use that....

Thanks,

Scott
