Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Emachine W3650 with an Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950
video card. I just purchased a 42" RCA L42FHD37 LCD monitor. When I connect the monitor to the pc via a VGA cable, the screen resolution changes to 640 x 480, when I try to change the resoolution under settings, the slide bar is stuck on this resolution with no other options. When I connect the PC to another monitor (computer projector), I can change the resolution. WhenI connect the monitor to my laptop, I can get the maximum 1024 x 768 resolution desired. How can I make the Emachine work with the RCA monitor?

How do I get updated drivers for windows 7 to run a LCD monitor, resolutions only go to 1680?

The Sony VAIO VGN-C140G/B manual indicates that it has the following video card:

Processor: Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950 on Intel's 950G chipset

The manual, if you require it, can be found at this link: VGNC140GB Manual

You could easily update the driver by using Intel's Driver Updater: Intel Driver Utility Update Graphic

You will likely need to do the same (updating driver) for your monitor. Please respond if updating both drivers doesn't solve your request.
