Question about Nvidia Computers & Internet

Resolution 1280x1024 is missing.

I have a Nvidia GeForce 7650 GS graphic card, and I'm running XP. I normally use 1280x1024 resolution, but it seems that the resolution isn't longer available. I can now choose between; 800x600, 960x600, 1024x768, 1088x612, 1152x864, 1280x720, 1280x768, 1280x800, 1360x768, 1440x900. I have no idea how I got all those new resolutions, and then have lost the 1280x1024 one.

    I tried uninstalling all of Nvidia's products on my computer, and when I restarted I could use the 1280x1024 resolution, but I can't game with a computer that isn't up to date on drivers on the graphic card, so I tried installing the newest driver, it demanded me to restart, so i did and I get the same old resolutions that I don't want again.

    So you helped me on the way, but my problem is still there =S

    Well, there was a driver that was recommended I should install, by some program, but when I did my resolutions changed.

    I have a 19" screen, don't think it's widescreen

Sounds like you have either a generic/basic driver, or none at all.

Reinstall your nvidia drivers, make sure to download the newest from nvidias website. Before you install, go to add/remove programs and remove any nvidia related software, otherwise the new driver installation will do you know good. And for future reference, every time you update your video drivers, you need to uninstall the old ones.

    What is your monitors model number?

    You say you were able to run 1280x1024 before without any problems?

    It could be that your monitor doesn't support that resolution, is it a wide screen?

    Have you made any hardware or major software changes recently. Do you remember when you first started having trouble, and do you remember if you made any changes, installed or uninstalled anything shortly before then.

    Give me as many details as you can.

I think I had a similar problem. I had to either adjust my default screen to 1280 or I had to make the game set to what my default screen size is for windows. I think if your windows default is different then the games resolution it has to do more work. Just a suggestion. Hope it helps. Tell me if it did please.

Change the resolution on my Samsung B2030 LCD Monitor


1600X900 is a higher resolution than that of 1280X1024. Therefore 1600X900 is a better resolution. If you would like to run at the lower resolution simply right click your desktop screen and click properties. Then on the settings tab use the slider bar to adjust the resolution. Lower to the left and higher to the right. If the desired resolution is unavailable then you could try downloading and installing the latest drivers for your graphics card installed in your computer.

Your card will either be AMD/ATI Radeon or Nvidia. You will need the model number of the graphics card, the latest drivers may increase resolution support for your card.

Also look on the bottom right hand side of your screen for an Nvidia Control Panel logo in green. Right click it and select the option to "change screen resolution" This may provide you with additional resolution options.

Take care!

Tried to install pci 8400 gs video card.


uninstall all Nvidia drivers, restart your computer, reinstall the drivers. I have also ran into issues with these card before where you have to change the resolution by right clicking the desktop and selct properties. Other times you have to use the nvidia software for this type of change.

GRAPHIC CARD PROBLEM


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.

GeForce, monitor displays incorrectly


Make sure you uninstalled all previous drivers first. Just to let you know the 8400 gs isnt a gaming graphics card but it is a step up from the absolutely terrible 7200 gs
