Monitor resolution vs video controller

I purchased a lcd monitor with a natural resolution of 1920 x 1200. The video controller in my computer only goes up to 1280 x 1024. What do I need to do to make my computer match the monitor?

The limitation is set by your video adapter. You will have to replace the current card with one that is compatible with 1920X1200. No work around on that one since it is hardware.

My NEC MultiSync LCD 1765 monitor boots up to the lowest resolution available. When I attempt to correct the resolution through the Display Options in my Control Panel Settings, I set it at the highest...


Try connecting the NEC to a different computer, to see if it correctly accepts 1280-by-1024.
If so, then there's nothing wrong with the monitor, and the fault lies with either the video-adapter in your computer, or something messed-up with your installed copy of Windows.
Try replacing the video-adapter.

I want to run a software which requires a screen resolution of 1280 x 768 but my Samsung SyncMaster 740nw supports up to 1280 x 700 screen resolution. Is there anything that I can do? Please guide.


Have you tried adjusting the screen resolution in Control Panel - Display - Settings and moving the slider on Screen resolution?
Normally a monitor such as Samsung LCD would be able to display a higher resolution.
If you cannot adjust the Screen resolution in Display - Settings then it may be that the correct video driver was not installed or is corrupted.
To check if the video diver is OK, go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager and click on Display adapter. Check that your display adapter is OK and working. If you see a yellow ? against the video adapter or a standard VGA adapter was installed then you need to re-install the video driver for your model graphics card.

Need to set the color to 6500K


No, the manufacturer is the one to contact on what resolution is best for your project.
Most monitor are already set for best resolution for photos and movie view and also media editing so you should be OK
if your monitor is a recent model at 16500X780 or it says that is 1080p or 1080 i then you should have no issue with the color setting.
You can go to the control panel and set the display settings for hue, color , contrast and brightness if your Monitor has a graphical user interface for it. Check your user manual for color adjustment for your monitor and also the video card that is install in the PC.
The "control panel will have the display setting for "true, and High color resolution.

I want to connect my playstation 3 to my hp vs15. But after doing a little bit of research i am asked to change my display mode in order to get video from my playstation 3. hence my question is how do...


You change the video resolution at the video source, in this case, your PS3, not at the monitor. VS 15 has 1024 x 768 60Hz Maximum Resolution, so your PS3 cannot be higher.
You need to google 'how to change PS3 video resolution' If the PS3 resolution is set to high, the VS15 will display Out of range/format/video not support.

What disavantage about LCD?


The most notable disadvantage to LCD screens is their fixed or native resolution. An LCD screen can only display the number of pixels in its matrix and no more or less. It can display a lower resolution in one of two ways. Using only a fraction of the total pixels on the display or through extrapolation. Extrapolation is a method whereby the monitor blends multiple pixels together to simulate a single smaller pixel. This can often lead to a blurry or fuzzy image particularly with text when running the screen below is native resolution.
Video was problematic with early LCD monitors because of lower response times. This has been overcome by many improvements, but there are some that still have low response times. Purchasers should be aware of this when purchasing a monitor. However, the improvements are often work arounds that can actually lead to another problem of reduced color clarity. Unfortunately, the industry is very poor about properly listing the specifications for monitors to help buyers understand and compare monitors.

  • Blurry images Outside Native Resolution
  • Motion Blur on Fast Moving images
  • Some Models Have Reduced Color Clarity
Conclusions At this point and time, most consumers will likely be purchasing LCD monitors over CRTs. There is almost no difference in the cost to consumers thanks to production improvements in LCDs and the reduction in the production of CRTs. Typically CRTs will only be seen sold with the least expensive of desktop computer systems or by those with special imaging needs such as graphics and medical professionals.

I have a Dell monitor and the text is blurry and fuzzy, how do I fix this?


this is actually from dell support website.. hope it will correct your problem...


1 Ensure the correct resolution is set for the monitor. Flat panel monitors display the sharpest, clearest images when set to their optimal resolution. Sometimes games and other programs will change the resolution then fail to set it back once they are closed. This will then make the desktop look big, distorted, and grainy. Perform the following steps to adjust the resolution:
  1. Right-click an empty area of the desktop, and then click Properties. (Or, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.)

  2. In the Display Properties window, click the Settings tab.

  3. Under Screen resolution, move the slider to the desired setting. For most flat panels the optimal setting will be all the way to the right.

  4. Click Apply, and then click OK.

  5. If prompted, restart the computer.
NOTE: If the resolution will not adjust to the appropriate settings, the video driver may need to be reinstalled or updated.


2 Ensure the screen is clean. Finger prints and smudges will make the screen look blurry. Clean the screen with a soft lint free cloth. If needed, dampen the cloth with warm water or use a LCD cleaning kit that can be purchased from most electronics stores.
3 Use the On Screen Display (OSD) on the monitor to select the Auto Adjust feature. Selecting this will synch the video signal and can sharpen the video image.
4 Reseat the video signal cable to ensure a secure connection.
5 Use the On Screen Display (OSD) on the monitor to select the Factory Reset feature.
6 Test the monitor on another computer or test another monitor on this computer. If available, testing different hardware will isolate if the problem stays with the computer or monitor

Screen displays: NOT Supported HS 80.0 Khz VS 75.0 Hz what could it be?


Your resolution rate and refresh rate are too high for the video adapter in your computer, therefore, the monitor is "smart" enough to recognize it cannot process the low or missing signal. Try running at 1280x800x60 and work your way up until you see the monitor "flake out" again, then take it down a notch for your best viewing pleasure.

I have a Star Logic 20" monitor and cannot get the resolution set higher than 800 x 600. HELP?


You are limited to the capabilities of your video card in your computer. The monitor itself is not part of the ability to raise the resolution. Go to Display Properties under Control Panel and slide the resolution all the way to the right. If the max is 800X600 then that is the max for your video card. Buy new video card.
