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.

How to Adjust Computer Resolution and What needs to be Considered


Everybody likes a nice looking display but of course it's beyond our control. Check out the things that we need to consider about the resolution adjustment.<br /> <ol> <li>The highest resolution of the monitor.</li> <li>The resolution of the Video card.</li></ol> Why? The monitor can only handle a limited resolution let's say you have a monitor that has a resolution of 800X600 and you have a video card with a resolution of 1280X1024, you can increase the resolution up to 1280X1024 but since your computer can only handle up to 800X600 the display will look really bad like a double vision. I hope you got the Logic of that. Now, if you want to increase the resolution of your computer consider both the monitor and the video card. Of course it would be best if both the video card and the monitor has equivalent resolution or much better the monitor to have a higher resolution than the video card for upgrade purposes.<br /> <br /> Now, to adjust the computer's resolution:<br /> <ol> <li>Right Click on your desktop</li> <li>Click on Personaliza</li> <li>Click on the Settings tab</li> <li>There you will find the drop down for the resolution of the video card</li> <li>Select the desired resolution. The higher the resolution the finer it looks</li> <li>If it gets blurry or bad, it means that the monitor cannot handle that certain resolution, so lower it down.</li> <li>Click Apply</li> <li>Click OK</li></ol> There you go! Should you have any questions feel free to post a reply on this post and i'll be more than happy to help you out with it.

I have Radeon HD 5450 2GB DDR3 Video card, which resolution of moniter would support this video card


This video card has a max resolution of 2560x1600, so generally any LCD or LED monitor on the market should work for it. If you want to have it work at it's maximum though I would recommend a bigger monitor or you won't be able to read anything on the screen. Personally I use a 32" at 1360x768, not the highest resolution but it is what I am comfortable with.

Windows 7 has some neat little enhancements, one of them being how it lets you handle dual monitors. If you're adding a second monitor to your Windows 7 home or office PC, which is a very good idea, it's a breeze to configure.
There are actually two ways you can currently setup multiple monitors in Windows 7, either by using a keyboard shortcut or via the traditional system properties.
I really like the first method since it's new and is way easier than having to go into the Control Panel or anything else.
Simply press the Windows key and P (Windows + P) to bring up a quick menu of options.

Pretty neat! You can pick to show only the computer, make the second monitor a duplicate of the first, extend the desktop to the second monitor or turn off the first monitor and activate the second.
The second way is to right-click on the desktop and choose Screen resolution.

Now you'll see the familiar 1 and 2 to distinguish which monitor is which. There are several options and under Multiple Displays, you can choose from the same options as when you pressed Win + P.

That's it! You can also change the orientation of the displays and change the resolution of each display. It's pretty straight-forward in Windows 7 and a lot easier! Enjoy!

Hello dave, the only way you can change default setting on resolution is go to > Nvidia Control Panel > Display > Change resolution and click apply. If this option does not work you can go to start> control panel> uninstall a program and remove your old nvidia driver from you computer and reinstall latest driver again, restart computer. I hope this helps you.

No video


Your Windows 95 System runs on a lower screen resolution and would have a low profile HW used for the same purpose. If you connect to a new Monitor the resolution capabilities of the monitor would not match the VGA capabilities of the old Mother Board Video Chip. How ever this troubleshooting needs to get more info from you. Is the display showing any signal while the system starts, atleast the initial Bios startup screens. If the monitor is not responding to even that, you may have no other option than getting a monitor which can match the system configuration. There are third party devices which can be added to the system externally or internally to enable the latest LCD to work on this board but i may not recommend. Good Luck.
