"No Limits" Monitor.INF File for Windows
Recently, I discovered that my HP P1110 Plug & Play 21 inch monitor
was capable of some pretty amazing resolutions with my Leadtek Winfast
Nvidia GeForce2Pro graphics card. I was trying out a monitor switch
to see what the maximum resolution it supported was, and found that my
monitor no longer came up as a P1110, as the ID sense line was not connected
on one of the cheap cables I was using. No matter, I figured, since
the system allowed the resoultion I had been using with the default monitor
Then I noticed that the screen was flickering. To make a long
story short, I discovered two things:
Then I decided I'd just load a profile that let me set the card to its
maximum settings and fiddle around with it. Well, I couldn't find
one. So, I made one. Monitor drivers are pretty easy, actually,
since no files are loaded into the system. The .inf file just sets some
registry settings, allowing the real video card drivers to make some queries
about the capabilities of the monitor.
The default driver won't let you run at any refresh rate higher than 60Hz,
no matter what the settings tab says
The default driver would let you run at much higher resolutions than the
limit the plug & play set (1600x1200).
To install, simply download my davemon.INF file, go to your System Properties/device
manager/monitors and select your properties. Go to the driver tab,
update driver, and display list of all drivers in a specific location.
Use browse and select the directory where you stored the davemon.INF file.
You should then be able to select the No Limits monitor!
