Re: Anyone know a way to increase the resolution past...

First, you might want to check what the maximum supported resolution of your monitor is. You can do this by looking it up on the internet or referring to the owners manual. If you cant find that information, in your graphics properties in Windows XP, click the advanced button beneath the color settings and click the monitor tab. Make sure the model listed under 'Monitor Type' matches the monitor you have. If it does, see if the 'Hide modes that this monitor cant display' box is checked. If so, the maximum resolution is limited by your monitor and you may have to upgrade the monitor to go any higher. If the model does not match, you can try the following: click Properties->Driver Tab-> Update Driver and either load the correct ones from the manufacturers web site or use one of the Standard Monitor types provided by the windows Driver library. Be warned though: If you select a standard type with resolution higher than your monitor supports, it will not display correctly at settings higher than 1024x768, and you may have to wait for windows to change the resolution back. Another thing you can try is unchecking the 'Hide modes that this monitor cant display' box, clicking ok, and setting the resolution to something higher than 1024x768, but the same warning applies! If it does not display correctly than you know for sure that the monitor is the limiting factor.

I need driver for card

If you visit the NVIDIA web site, you will find a driver, if there is one available for the operating system you are using.
NVIDIA has a small program that you can download and run on your PC. It will examine the graphics card and operating system of your computer and suggest the proper driver program to download.

Hello, I have been using my asus vw222u monitor for a while now, connected to my dell dimension 4600 pc. I have been running the resolution at 1024x768, and been getting relatively clear pictures, but...

Your graphics card will not support that refresh rate @ 1680x1050. you may need to upgrade your graphics card.

Here is the best price/performance card for your machine. and will support upto 2048x1536 @ 85Hz

Hope this helps.

Microphone does not seem to be working

The microphone connector is on the rear of the monitor, and you need to connect it to your computer's microphone input jack. The cable is the same kind you would use to connect the audio output jack to the input on a set of computer speakers. Once the microphone is plugged in it works just like any standard microphone. No special drivers are needed for the monitor, but you do need to be sure that the proper drivers for your computer's sound devices have been installed.

Video Problems


Maybe you need to install the correct driver of your video card. But first update your motherboard driver, if you have CD/DVD utilities enlclosed in your computer from the vendor then you should reinstall that in series installation. after that installation restart the system and then install the updated driver or the current CD/DVD utilities of your geforce 8600 GT and again restart the system after installation. and then set the monitor display to the required display of your games.

May this help, best regards, melnavz
