Resolution problem! 1440 x 900 resolution is not even listed anym

I have an asus motherboard which uses the G33/G31 Express Chip set family video adapter. The computer is connected to an samsungsyncmaster732nw monitor which has a native resolution of 1440 x 900.Everything was running okay until I turned my computer on today and found that the resolution has reset itself to 1280 x 768, and the 1440x 900 resolution is not even listed anymore! This has happened without there being any changes to the system (hardware or software). I have installed the latest Intel drivers for the G33/G31 but this has not resolved the issue. I found a utility on the internet that allows youth check if the monitor's available resolution are 'being seen' by the computer, and sure enough, 1440 x 900 is listed there - so this isn't a problem with the computer recognizing the monitor. I've also installed some other drivers from Intel which are supposed to ensure 1440 x 900support, but these haven't worked either. The really annoying this is that I know my video card is capable of 1440 x 900 resolution because it has been set that way for the last four months! Has anybody any idea what the problem might be?

I would recommend that you go into Device Manager, then locate your Display Adapter, and uninstall it completely. Once it's completely uninstalled, reboot your computer. When it comes back up, it should start out around 800x600, then Windows will attempt to install the default Intel driver. When it does this, it may restore your driver to the original state. Good luck!

Does the Intel software have some kind of control panel? That might have an option to fix just that. For example the software with ATi cards has a Force resolution button, that lets you change the resolution to any the graphics card is capable of, without taking the display into account.

If that option isn't available try reinstalling the graphics driver. If you need any help with that you know where to find me.

HOW TO FIX ERROR 80070002


The problem is with your graphic card G33/G31. Since its an Integrated graphic card you need a dedicated GPU to run games on decent settings.Earlier i had the same graphic card and i can only play games from 2005.This GPU is too weak to run such games. I suggest you to buy a new dedicated graphic card.

How can I change the resolution from 1280 x 800? This is the highest possible according to the display setttings. I have removed the generic pNp monitor. I am running Vista Business. The display adapter is...


Graphics Unable to use the native resolution, such as 1920x1080, 1680x1050 and 1440x900 circuit388.gif Symptom(s):
On some displays, users may be unable to use the native resolution when using Intel® chipset graphics. Resolutions such as 1920x1080, 1680x1050, and 1440x900 are not available in graphics properties.

Cause:
The display's EDID is not read properly when connected to some digital flat panel displays. Display devices describe its capabilities by sending EDID (Extended Display Information Data) to the computer.

Solution:
Intel has released a graphics driver to specifically address this issue; however, there may be side effects to this solution such as longer than normal resume times from standby. This solution will only work with external displays such as DFP displays connected to the computer's VGA port. This driver is not designed to address issues with a notebook's built-in display (Local Flat Panel) or with TV’s connected to the system. This driver is provided as is. Intel has not tested, and does not guarantee, the operation of the driver for this purpose.

You wont be able to play a "demanding" game on any integrated graphics chip. While you may be able to start the game and load into it, it will be unplayable, or a painful experience at low resolution at best. I play World of warcraft, which isnt very taxing on a system, unless you put settings on ultra and high shadows. I can play it on my laptop with the same chipset that you have, but i am forced to play at the lowest resolution, and turn all settings to off/lowest, and it still only gives me 20ish frames per second. Ideally you would want to never dip below 30 to be playable As far as the HDMI port, that is just how the video signal is being sent after leaving the video card/chip. Even with the HDMI, your lack of dedicated graphics will be your limiting factor, and will not get any better by sending it through HDMI.

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.
