Re: lcd monitor resolution

Hi, if I understand you right, your LCD can display 1680 X 1050 but your PC/Video can only display a max screen resolution of 1280 X 1024 (or something like that). Right click on your desktop, go to properties, Go to the settings Tab, see how high you can bring the screen resolution (towards the right). That is the limitation of the built-in video (S3 Graphics UniChrome 2D/3D Graphics with motion compensation) of the MSI KM4AM-V (2004). If this will do for you, then you're set, if not then..... To be able to display resolution higher than that, you have to add an AGP Video card capable of the 1680 X 1050 (ATI or NVidia or your choice as long as screen res is high). Your motherboard has one AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) slot @ 1.5V 4X/8X. This will also hold if you already happen to have an AGP Video card but with relatively low screen res. Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Regards

Switched to a widescreen monitor and the resolution is faded and lacks sharpness. How to reslove it?

depends on what version of windows you are running, but for the most part, right click on the your desktop, go to properties, then click on settings i think at the top. Then play with your resolution till it looks good. If you cant find one that looks good, your video card might not support the monitor you have, and you might need to buy a new one.

I bought a lcd monitor samsung syncmasterB1930 and it requires 1324*1068 screen resolution. i have installed the drivers for the monitors but still unable to get the desired resolution. is there any way...

The native resolution if this monitor is 1440x900 - i have no idea how you end up with that weird resolution. In any way it will not accept a higher resolution.

Can I connect a Hannspree HF225DPB 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor to my SL410 and get good resolution and a crisp clean readable screen? I tried another monitor and it looked terrible.

No, you can't, since the problem is in the laptop - the video driver isn't installed and the monitor isn't configured correctly. Only after you do both of them it will work.

Installing the video card driver can make use of its features of higher resolution support for your LCD monitor.

And also install the driver of your LCD monitor. This enable to use higher resolution that could provide with your computer video card as I have mentioned above.

LCD not being detected

Restart computer -> Keep tapping on F8 key till safe mode option appears-> login using safe mode -> when login complete -> rightclick on my computer -> properties-> hardware tab -> Device Manager -> click on Sub-option "Display Adapters"-> Right click the adapter inside -> properties -> driver tab -> rollback drivers.
Follow instructions and restart and choose normal windows if asked.

If not successful, goto start -> all programs -> Accessories -> System tools, -> system resore -> choose restore to a previous... -> choose a date before the date you updated drivers. dont go 3-4 month, you might loose data. choose a closer date to the date you found the issue. follow the instructions.

restarts automatically and recovery screen comes. dont worry this is normal. when done, restart the system and see if resolution is alright.

get back to us with what has happened, we will support you further.

thanks, have a nice day....

How to adjust LCD wide monitor to a higher

This error is typical of an incorrect video driver has been installed.
To check the installed video driver go to Control Panel - Display - Settings tab - Advance button - Adapter tab. This shows the adapter/driver. If it shows VGA graphics card or not the model of your graphics card then you need to download the correct graphic/video driver and install it. You will then able to configure the display at a higher resolution and at the highest color bit (ie 32 bit if there is sufficient video RAM installed).

Resolution 16-10

Your resolution is based on your video cards capabilities. If your still using the original on-board, integrated video I doubt if you'll be able to reach such resolution. Open control panel, open Display. Click the Settings Tab. You will notice Screen resolution & there is a slide bar. Sliding the bar to More will increase the resolution. You'll see what the max is for your video card. As to your LCD monitor it's max resolution is capable of reaching 1680x1050. Keep in mind the word " capable ".
If you need that kind of resoluton you'll need to find a AGP video card that can go that high.
Please vote.....
