strange display problem external monitor


Recommended Posts

Just bought a new Sony Vaio laptop which came with Nvidia Geforce 8400M GT.

I bought an external Viewsonic monitor, VX2835wm 27". I also have an HDMI

cable between the monitor and my Sony. The quality on the Viewsonic is distorted

even though it works fine with a regular VGA cable.

I have 1920x1200 resolution (max) and 60Hz refresh rate. I don't know why its not

working well on my Belkin HDMI cable. Its fully plugged into and I selected HDMI

as input option in the monitor's panel. Strange thing is, auto adjust is disabled in HDMI

mode which I do not understand why. I tried 59Hz as well, same problem.

Can someone explain?

I'm using Vista Ultimate


Sony Vaio VGN-FZ190

Vista Ultimate

Nvidia Geforce 8400M GT (256MB dedicated, 734MB shared)

HDMI cable (Belkin)

Viewsonic VX2835wm 27"

1280x800 laptop / 1920x1200 monitor 60hz each.
