    Yes, that's what I thought too. I get confused as to what drivers I should update to fix the problem. Would I update the driver for the Display adapter, or the driver for the computer monitor?

    Thanks in advance!

It seams your video card is not properly install. If you have more option greater then 640*800 then it means your monitor not support above resolution that you mention.

If problem is not this which I mention then please reply to this thread with explanation.

    OK
    You have to update the driver of Display adapter.

    If you didn't know about your display adapter then do this...
    Right click on desktop
    Go to properties
    Move to sitting tab
    Click advanced button
    Now click adapter tab
    There you will see your Display adapter name version
    Do to your manufacture site and download updated driver for your display card.

    I hope this will help you, don't forget to mark as answer my thread.

LCD monitors do best at their native resolution. There might be 2x2 pixels per spot at that resolution. Once you change the resolution, you might have 2.7 x 2.7 pixels per spot (merely an example). Although a resolution might fit well, at 3x3 or 4x4 pixels, all the other resolutions might look out of focus as each character bleeds over into an adjacent pixel.

The 16:9 aspect ratios are the only ones that will work correctly with this monitor; others will show black at the top and bottom or left and right, or images will be too tall or too wide.

The resolutions you should try are 1920 x 1080, 1280 x 720 or 800 x 600. When I look at resolutions available for my 16:9 ratio monitor, those are the three that are bold.. others are available, but would not show the high quality display.

There are also buttons on the front of the monitor to adjust the display left/right, up/down, re-size, focus, brightness, etc.. A change there could make a difference too.

I install window 7 but my benq 15" lcd monitar's screen rosuation not competible. pls guide me how i increase the rosulation thnx


As for your 15" LCD BENQ Monitor, "1024 x 768" pixels is the Maximum Resolution
If you increase your screen higher than the Maximum resolution you get a black screen! because the monitor cannot support the resolution higher than "1024x768" pixels.

How to change your screen resolution Win 7-> Link

FYI
Here are typical resolutions for some popular screen sizes
19-inch screen (standard ratio): 1280 x 1024 pixels
20-inch screen (standard ratio): 1600 x 1200 pixels
22-inch screen (widescreen): 1680 x 1050 pixels
24-inch screen (widescreen): 1900 x 1200 pixels

Hope it helps.

How do i change the pixels


A pixel is a single point in a graphic image ie on the monitor. You can't change the pixels because it is the inbuilt hardware in the screen of your monitor.

You can only change the resolution of the screen. You can change the resolution from your Display properties -> settings tabs.

Hope it helps.

Pixel Ratio is just a parameter Measured to Produce Good Quality Display with Fine details so Do not Mix up with Resolution and Pixel ratio.

Use the Resolution that best sutes the Application you use(which may change with time to time based on applications you use)
Keep a standard Resolution 1024 x768,or which ever suits your Vision.
NViiDiA is a Grafix card and Monitor features are 2 differnt thigs so.
Dont be concerned about the Parameters and get mixed up.
just find the best possible Resolution and enjoy your Monitor with best Quality, :)
