Lcd monitor resolution

Bought a widescreen lcd monitor, needs 1680 x 1050 resolution

Posted by on

  • bob skorupa Apr 27, 2007

    It appears that 1680 x 1050 resolution, widescreen for 22 inch monitors, does require an AGP card (that has dvi output).

    Question, what is the procedure for installing the card. I understand how to install a card, but do jumper settings need to be changed on the motherboard, or a change made in the bios, or bother, etc., and in what order.

    Thanks.

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

    Hi, sorry for the loooong delay.

    Most motherboard do not require jumper settings for video card.

    BIOS settings although not necessary, can enhance performance. Since you used to run your video using part of your onboard memory, by going to the bios, you can set it not to use any memory or the lowest possible setting. At times, there are also provision to select either: onboard video, PCI, AGP. Chances are you will be installing an AGP, so select this. Also setting the aperture size to roughly double your new video card memeory might help improve performance. All other settings should stay.

    Cheers.

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.

Resolution 1680 x 1050 is not adjustable


Make sure your video card is capable of supporting that resolution and also make sure your video card drivers are up to date.

you need a video card that is capable of widescreen display resolutions.  Most older cards and onboards do not have this feature.

Round things are shaped like eggs


This is a widescreen monitor. To get the display to look right, you need to install the software that came with the monitor, and set the resolution to the manufacturer's recommended setting (the monitor's "native resolution"). I don't know what that is for the AL1917W. I have the AL1917, not the widescreen. A friend got a 21-inch widescreen and had the same trouble as you until we set it to the proper resolution. (And it looks great and I'm jealous!)

Hannspree 19" Widescreen resolution available


I have the same problem. i downloaded a generic driver that allows 1600 X 900 resolution. this is better..things are taller rather than wider (with the 1280X1024 resolution). i dont understand why there isnt a 1440X900 driver available for XP systems.

Distorted screen


Youre problem is because when a widescreen monitor is fed with a signal that is not ws it stretches the image sideways making people look short and fat. The only way to really fix this is to make sure the graphics card is providing a widescreen resolution to the monitor. In this case the native resolution (the resolution the screen looks best at) is 1680 x 1050 . If you right click ur desktop and go down to properties and settings u want to change the screen resolution to a widescreen res.

Hopefully 1680 x 1050 ... if this is unavailable try 1440 x 900

If you have an nvidia graphics card you can also go to the nvidia control panel and change the resolution attributes. If the widescreen res isnt available u could also try the 'change flat panel scaling' and select the do not scale option.

Please note before starting any of this make sure u have the latest graphics and monitor drivers available.

Vertical size


LCD monitors auto adjust and use a fixed resolution. It's impossible to reduce the vertical scan. The only what I could think of is to specify a widescreen resolution if the monitor is not widescreen and this may only work if you are connected by DVI cable. Sorry!

Input not supported when trying to play a game


the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
