Question about Biostar P4M80-M7 Motherboard

1 Answer

Cannot set resolution 1640x1050

Hello, My motherboard is Biostar p4m800 Pro-M7 v1.2; chipset 8237. I use onboard video VIA/S3G UniChrome Pro IGP; video driver v.6.14.10.380 from 25.09.2007; VGA Cashe in BIOS is max 64Mb. For now the highest resolution for monitor is 16:10 is 1280x760. May I increase resolution up to 1640x1050 without either upgrading motherboard or buying Video Card? Any help would be appreciated very much.

    I believe my drivers are installed correctly. At least there were not any error messages during installation. But the maximum resolution that available for video adaptor is 1280x760. I mean 16:10 format. So, reinstall drivers? Upgrade BIOS? or go to shop for a new vido card :-(?

Hi,
To answer your question in short: If your video card and monitor drivers are installed correctly and you are able to adjust the resolution to 1640x1050 in your settings then your card and monitor are able to handle that resolution.
Remember that at higher resolutions your display card performance might become very slow.]
This is due to your BIOS shared memory being only 64Mb.
To get better performance you will have to upgrade your display card to one with more memory. ie. 256Mb. or more.
Best of luck.
Regards,
Graemevm

I have one monitor connected but under the display drop down in properties it shows the following. 1. (Multiple Monitors) on VIA/S3G UniChrome Pro IGP 2. (Default Monitor) on VIA/S3G UniChrome Pro IGP...


It seems like you have the newer system board with digital output. the machine enable you connect 2 monitors if you want.
default monitor is 2. that's why you can change the resolution and other setting.
the setting will not affect what you going to do. just leave it alone.

if it is a onboard video then surely it won't work. onboard video does not support high graphics and direct 3d.
