Can't set 1680x1050 resolution on viewsonic monitor

Hello, I have a laptop and a viewsonic monitor attached. I can not set the best resolution that is prompted by the monitor 1680x1050. The resolution is not listed. I tried to install the drivers from CD but this didn't work. I also installed the drivers from official site of viewsonic - same result. Can you please suggest a solution!

I found the solution for my problem.
Initially I thought it's a monitor problem and was trying to find the drivers for it.
The problems is not with my monitor but with the video adapter I use.

My video adapter has a intel chipset (Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family). Apparently the driver that I was using was quite old.

The only thing I had to do is:
1. Download the latest video adapter driver
2. Uninstall the current video adapter driver
3. Restart the system (Windows XP)
4. Install the new driver.
5. Restart the system.

How do I set the resolution, screen posts a box saying for best results use 1680 x 1050@60HZ, how can I set this?


Hello,
In XP goto the control panel and click display. Select the Settings tab and move the screen resolution bar to the right until it says 1680x1050.
Vista should be similar to the XP instructions.
In windows 7 goto the control panel and click display. Select Adjust Resolution from the menu to the left. Now adjust the display setting to 1680x1050.
Regards, Chris

This would be the Native resolution. That your display functions and displays best in.
Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.
(1) RIGHT mouse click over your desktop.

Windows XP will differ - but same basic idea to navigate and make this fix.
Pictures show from a Windows Vista Machine (extremely similar to Windows 7)
(2) Click Display settings

(3) Now you'll see a slider bar, Native Computer Display 1680x1050 resolution.
Some computers can not support this resolution and may cause non operational situations.
If the display setting is not on the slider bar. Chances would be that it's not a supported Resolution.
"Older computer" If the display doesn't show while trying different resolutions - do not click apply and wait. the screen will return to it's previous setting. ViewSonic VX2235 has a Setting that could be used to Disable this annoying message - Revert to ViewSonic lightdark_2.jpg

I cannot install the driver for Viewsonic VX2235wm (XP pro) Cannot select 1680x1050 res for this monitor


Well your LCD supports 1680x1050 resolution.
You have to check the video/ graphics card of your PC, if it supports the same resolution or not. Let me know the model no. and your motherboard details for a better assistance.

Looking forward for your response

I connected my ps3 to my viewsonic vx2235wm and it says out of range or wont have a picture


The PS3 video output setting is too high for the monitor to handle, native resolution for this Viewsonic is 1680x1050. Try running the PS3 at 640x480 first and start changing the resolution to higher level.

Cannot get correct resolution


1. It could be limitation of your video card. Older cards would not support high resolution for LCD monitors.
2. Be sure to use DVI(digital) output from your video card. You will not get a good resolution with VGA(analog)
3. When installing driver for a monitor sometimes you will get a chose to install analog(VGA) or digital(DVI) driver. Choose the correct driver.

Good luck!
