Problems getting the native resolution

I have a dual monitor setup with my Hanspree HF229H as my primary monitor and my LG L1920P as my secondary monitor. My problem is that I cannot seem to get a resolution that fits the display for the monitor.

Going to my video card settings, my LG monitor has an option to switch to the native resolution, or to scale the display so it fits the screen. My Hanspree tab displays the options but grays them out so I cannot work with them.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Dual monitor setup


Wow, I can't believe the solutions here.

The 85Hz monitor will still work at 60Hz. You don't have to use it at 85Hz. The difference between 85Hz and 60Hz is minimal. So, it will not make any difference which one you use for the primary monitor. However, Windows should configure it correctly for you.

My recommendation is that you use the monitor with the best resolution for your primary monitor (1920 x 1080 or 1080p) and use the lower res monitor for your secondary monitor. However, if you are a gamer, you might want to consider that you will likely get slower frame rates if you use the higher resolution monitor for gaming.

Connecting: You need two video connectors on your computer. They will most likely be one of the following three: VGA (also known as DSub), DVI or HDMI. Some computers will have all three, and some will have only one.

If you have only one: If it's a laptop, you'll have to get a USB to video adapter that matches your monitor connector. This is not the best way to connect a monitor and personally I wouldn't bother.

If it's a desktop, you need to purchase a video card with more than one monitor connector. Almost all cards have this now, so they are available anywhere from about $50 to over $500 depending on how much you want to spend.

If your computer has two monitor ports, just plug them in. If both monitor cables are the same, you may need an adapter. For example, if both monitors only have a VGA connector, you will need to get hold of a VGA to DVI adapter so you can plug both monitors into your computer. If you're unsure of what connector is cal what, just Google it and you should see some pictures. Eg: Google VGA connector picture, or DVI connector picture.

Once you have them plugged into your computer, if you're running Windows 7 it should automatically detect the monitors and display the correct images. You can right click anywhere on the desktop, and select "resolution", then see pictures of both monitors. From here you can change which monitor is the primary.

You can enable or disable the monitors by using [Windows Key] P.

If you are using Windows XP, right click on the desktop, select the rightmost tab, right click on the picture of the extra monitor and enable it, and them set it to the correct resolution using the slider if it's not already set correctly. Check the box to extend your desktop onto this monitor. Drag it to the side of your primary monitor you want it on and click on "Apply". The monitor should power up (if you have turned it on) and display an extension of your desktop.

I have a computer that i run dual montors on, both plug into the same video card, both monitors are crt's. my video card has 1 vga connector and 1 dvi connector. so i use a dvi to vga addaptor. now...


It is possible that you've got the resolution and vertical refresh rate set too high. CRTs tend to flicker if the vertical refresh rate is not set to about 72 to 75 Hz. If your screen resolution it set fairly high compared to what the monitor was designed to display it can overtax the video sweep circuitry in the monitor. If possible check the manufacturer's specs.

Often the video driver will let you specify different resolutions for primary and secondary monitor. If you can't find the manufacturer's specs it would be prudent to pick a less demanding resolution or vertical refresh rate for the secondary monitor.

You may need to check some configuration of dual monitors.

Did you change the graphic card for the primary monitor? There could be a support between that graphic card and the monitor.
Did you check the power settings about monitor and disable any power saving plans?

Monitor resolution


Hello,

What do you mean that you were unable to get the native resolution of 1440x900? Are you saying that the resolution varries?

Since you mentioned that the mother board supports 1440x900, try to set the monitor resolution to that same resolution and then restart the computer.

If you will get the same problem, you have to make sure that the video card supports 1440x900 resolution.

Same problem, acer sucks imo


I think I may have fixed it but I haven't rebooted my computer yet. I uninstalled the latest ATI driver version 9.3 and then installed an older driver version 7.3. Monitor now turns on and off and gets signal every time so far. I'll post back if it the problem comes back after I reboot.

How can I make fonts look good in an LCD monitor ?


The VGA connection should be fine; I have DVI and when I switched from analog, the difference was pretty minimal, to my eyes.

Is it just the fonts that are blurry, or everything? If fonts only, then this almost certainly suggests that running the ClearType tuner again would solve the problem. But this applies to all displays, so if one is good and the other is not, then this isn't it.

If everything is a little blurry, then this suggests one of two problems -- the first, you report trying, which is that the display adapter is set to a different resolution than the native resolution of the LCD monitor itself. Your display adapter should probably be able to drive 2 monitors (the built-in laptop monitor and the external monitor) at once. You should be able to set their resolutions separately.

Assuming Windows XP: Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings > at which point, you should see two monitors listed in a dropdown. Set them to their native resolutions there (using the slider bar, usually all the way to the right), and save.

If you do have the display resolutions set to their native resolutions for both monitors, then it's possible that your external monitor is messed up. A quick test would be to run the on-screen settings, usually from a button on the monitor itself. If what is displayed there is sharp and what is displayed from Windows is not, then this points to a problem with the display driver. If everything, even the on-screen display is blurry, then perhaps the monitor settings are messed up -- usually there's an option to restore to factory settings -- try that.

If that doesn't work, I'm probably out of ideas, unless you have further information.

Adjusting the horizontal & vertical to be proportionate


You need to set the correct resolution for your monitor,

To do this, minimize all windows, and right click on your desktop (not on an icon). Select properties, and go to Settings on the tabs on top.

Drag the slider until your resolution matches that of the monitor. I use mine on 1600 x 1050. However if your card doesn't go that high, try either the next ones down until it looks normal, or try a driver update for your graphics card.
