GRAPHIC CARD PROBLEM

I have a PC with Intel core 2 due processor, intel dg31pr motherboard, 2GBDDR 2 (800Mhz) ram, maxtor 250 GB hdd, XFX nvidia Geforce 9400GT (1GB memory DDR2, PCIe) card and LG 17'' Flatron L1742S LCD monitor. The problem is I am not getting the maximum resolution which is 2560x1600 of the card. When I tried to play Tomb Raider Undrworld I saw only 1280x1024 as the maximum resolution. In display properties graphics adaptor tab the memory size showing is 1GB. But there is only 32 bit color quality.

What should I do for best performance from card?

Hi, I noticed you posted this same problem again. Here's the answer from the first post which should answer your question.

The maximum performance of your video card is limited by the hardware you attach it to. In the display properties of Windows, your highest resolution is 1280x1024 because your monitor is not able to go any higher than this. This resolution is a typical maximum for a 17" monitor. Some 15" can do this, and some 19" can do this. In order to get a higher resolution, you'll need to get a bigger monitor with a higher native resolution. For example, a nice 24" monitor can only do 1920x1200. The video card can go higher, but it's limited by the monitor. 32bit color is your highest setting - that's 16 million colors. Your video card's 1GB of RAM only determines how much rendered data (usually 3D) it can store and move at any given moment, which is related to but not determined by your screen resolution. That's a very nice card - you should be able to get very good frame rates, color, and performance out of 32bit color and 1280x1024. If you want a higher resolution, you'll need to get a bigger monitor.

It's the motherboard, the BIOS forgets that there are components attached to the board and can't detect them.
Time for a new motherboard, this one is unfixable and it you wait too long it will fail while you use it with who know what consequences.

The processor is too weak - get at least an i5, best would be a quad core i7; the hard drive will be filled faster than you thing - bigger is always better; get some faster memories - at least 1666 MHz, 4 GB is bare minimum, get a 64bit OS and 8 GB for real performance; the power source is at the limit - for best result get one of 600W; as for the video card the best for photoshop is Nvidia Quadro CX, even ATI Fire will be better than any gaming card.

I want some information about Nvidia GeForce 9400 GT 1GB DDR 2


If you are using Dual Core the mother board you are using may have PCI Express Slot. So that you may install Graphics card. Only for particular lower end mother board doesn't have this feature. Any way tell me your motherboard make and model no. e.g., Intel DG31PR, 945GNT, DG41TY etc.,
