I have Radeon 7200 and I just got a Dell S2009W flat screen monitor. When I hooked it up it said I needed to set the display resolution to 1600 x 900. I don't think my graphics card will set to that.. I need to upgrade my graphics card, how do I do that?

Re: Upgrading graphics card
According to the manufacture your card has the resolution up to 2048 X 1536 that is higher than what the monitor is telling you to set your resolution to. try going into your display options and ajust the resolution down to 1600 X 900. Also since your monitor is a dell an new it should come with an set-up disk for that monitor that should once intalled set the monitor to the correct graphics setting for you so you do not have to go through and do it manually. did your come with a disk? If not here is the link to download the drivers for your monitor.

Was the monitor recognized properly by the video driver?
Go to Display Properties, settings, advanced, monitor and see if Plug and Play monitor is installed. All modern graphics cards talk to the monitor to discover it's capabilities and should adjust the available resolutions so that the monitor's native resolution is available for choosing. If some other monitor is listed there, change it to Plug and Play monitor. If still having troubles, you can do two things: - update the video driver for your graphics card - find the monitor's .inf file (it should be on a CD that comes with the monitor, or can be downloaded from DELL site), and install this instead of the Plug and Play monitor or whatever you have in your monitor setup (as above, go to monitor - properties - update driver).
what the problem is your pc is displaying a resolution you monitor cant display most likely its to low do you have a 2nd monitor you can hook up to set resolution Once you have done that set resolution that your new monitor can take and then hook up . when i moved from a 19inch monitor which ran at 1280 x1024 to a 32 inch samsung 1360x768 i had same problem as my screen cant display that res so set to what ya monitor can do .If you dont have a second display keep connected turn pc off with only your sharp cable in and it should turn on once into windows
You can put any graphics card in any machine you just need to install the proper driver
Use to be a jumper on the mother that disabled the onboard video but today I think the soft hardware saves use the trouble.
You can run 2 monitors at one time using the 2 video graphics... card and the one on board just set you display properties
first thing first ensure that you have the latest ATI radeon X1600 pro driver and software installed else you won't be able to get the desired options for dual display under settings coz it will be working with generic drivers. To download the latest driver and software click here
in the advanced BIOS features there should be a onboard GPU tab, put it on disabled or on initiate AGP/PCI first (depends on the BIOS), so to be sure that the onboard card is disabled !
Connect the display to the HIS ...video card , and at least on bootup there should be info displayed on the screen . If not than : - try to reinsert the video card (bad connection ) (also check if its a card that needs external power source ( i doubt it)) - check if the video card is compatible with the motherboard (should be in the user manual, or on the producers site ... ) - check on another comp. if the card is good ....
hope it helps u ... if not, give more details ....
The link below is a Digitally signed M992 monitor driver.
Also try upgrading to the latest ATI software and drivers. You can also try and change the frequency refresh rate to 75mhz. It in the Control Panel under 'Display' and tab 'Monitor'.
It shows a list for frequencies you can try.
