Hello, I have the same Sony VAIO PC (PCVRX850) and came upon a EIZO LCD Flexscan L685 monitor. The monitor has DVI-I inputs and of course this pc has a vga. Do I have to change the video card? If so, what would you recommend? I'm not very computer savy, but I have access to people if need be. Thanks for any help someone can give me!

Your Sony has an integrated video card which can't be upgraded. It does have an AGP slot where you can install a video card, though. If you tried to download the latest drivers for this onboard card and that hasn't worked, then a new VGA card is in orde. These are getting hard to come by, as the standard is now PCI-E graphics.
I would look for something like an ATI Radeon 9600 with 128 MB RAM if you want decent performance.

How do I get my gateway fpd1975w tft lcd monitor to not stretch images images across the screen?


You need to make sure your computer's display resolution is set to 1440x900, which is the monitor's native resolution. Other resolutions will result in fuzzy displays or, as you're seeing, distorted images.

Right-click on an open area of the Windows desktop (that is, not over any icons), then select "Properties" from the pop-up menu. Click the "Settings" tab and you'll find a slider adjustment to set the resolution. If 1440x900 is not offered as a resolution, you'll need to upgrade your video card (or add a video card if you have a motherboard with integrated video). Most newer computers support that resolution, but some older systems may only go to 1024x768.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I got the problem too, today...


Check the specs for your video card. Just because the monitor can handle that resolution does not mean that your graphics card can. If it cannot then you can either upgrade the graphics card to one that will support the resolution or you'll have to use the highest resolution that your video card can support. Hope this helps.

Monitor resolution


Hello,

What do you mean that you were unable to get the native resolution of 1440x900? Are you saying that the resolution varries?

Since you mentioned that the mother board supports 1440x900, try to set the monitor resolution to that same resolution and then restart the computer.

If you will get the same problem, you have to make sure that the video card supports 1440x900 resolution.

Assuming you're using the latest drivers from here , the next step would be to ask MSI for a bios upgrade that supports the higher resolution.

Try changing the resolution to 1440x900. This is the ideal resolution for this monitor.
To change the resolution:
Right click on an empty space on your Windows desktop.
Choose Properties (XP) or Personalize (Vista)
Choose the Settings tab (XP) or Display Settings (Vista).
Slide the resolution slider to 1440x900, then click apply.
If asked whether you want to keep this setting, choose yes/ok.

Note: Not all video cards support this resolution. Updating your video card's (not monitor's) driver may add it.
