So I just felt the need to register here to thank all of the people that helped each other cause was because of lots of people trying the mod that I tried too
I received today sama cable as Claude, but i can't get windas to work
I have done windas patching twice and everything has gone perfectly, but when i connect the cable to monitor and try to save data to file it only gives error: "Can't connect to Monitor! Check Bus line and condition!".
I am using epox 8K3A+ motherboard and windows 2000 operating system.
Please help if you know what is wrong with my system.
does anyone have a whole version of windas?
I don't seem to be able to get some of the .dlls
to make it work.
hello.Can anyone help me by explaining to me why: when the monitor is cold (just started) the brightness level is a little increased (the "black" is not very black but a dark gray) an the colors are a little washed-out....but after about 15-20 min. they all became normal and the image quality is excelent....(my monitor is a Dell P1130). sorry my english is not very good.... Any ideea ???
OK, so far I'm lovin this thread with its nuggets of genius.
I recently bought a dell P1110 at a salvation army store and it has the brightness problem.
I'd rather try the WinDAS fix than the resistor since to me it seems a bit safer and better in the long run.
I've purchased the ECS cable from the previously mentioned ebay listing, so it's on the way.
I've been trying to follow the how to (which is great, btw) at http://www.geocities.com/gregua/windas/
I'm running into a problem, tho, after downloading windas.exe (not the incomplete file) and running it, i get the three files fine. But then it won't allow me to actually install it. So as far as the HowTo goes, im stuck on step 2.
i'm running winxp pro sp2, running as admin...i kno ive read of people having problems using the program but i havent read of many people being troubled with the installation.
Any help at all would be greatly apreciated. Thanks
These are the errors i get:
I have managed to build the cable, and install the windas software.
I saved the DAT file, but it appears to have a very odd format.
I cant open it in note pad, it opens with a hex editor but still looks odd.
My dat file is attached(please rename the extenstion to "dat" before viewing as I could not attach the file with the dat extention) for those of you who have done this, does it look strange?
Also, I cant go into export mode(from the help menu in Windas to view the dat file).
could someone please attach what their dat file looks like?
Windas (and my hideous home made cable) worked perfectly! Needed to drop the G2 value to 125.
I wanted to buy the cable off the eBay auction, but there are no cables available any more.
Can I order this cable anywhere else?
(Just to make sure... there is no extra soldering required.. right? Just the windas software....)
I`ve got same problem as described above by Zero, It seems to be common,
I`m using gigabyte GA-8IR533 & XP+SP2 (if that matters), bios port1-2 enabled, devices connected with homemade cable (max232 - checked). Does anyone tried to change bit/sec rate? (by default 9600)
Any suggestion would be much appreciated `cause I getting desperate with
my G500 overbrightess problem!!!
