1680 X 1050

Hi folks,

Just got a real nice wide screen (22" Dell Ultra Sharp) monitor and wouldn't ya know it my GeForce 5200FX will not support the required 1680 x 1050 res!! I'm like too old for gaming, but I'm a very serious architectural designer working in 2D and 3D design software such as SketchUp Pro, Auto CAD, etc. Can any of you pros recommend a good work-horse graphics card that won't break the budget?

Current PC: Dell 8300 Dimension, 180 HD, 3 GB ram, XP pro, etc.. a no talk back, quick as lightning (for me) machine.

I need help and know just enough to screw things up so I look forward to your recommendations.

best, George

Dell 22" monitor goes black


Your monitor probably has bad capacitors now. Bring it to a local electronic repair shop and have the monitor tested. They can easily replace any bad capacitors.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

Have a new 23 inch samsung monitor that requires res 1920x1080

The problem is the cable connection to the video card.
When using the DVI output of the FX 5500, the maximum screen resolution that you can select is 1280 x 1024.

But, if you use the Analog (VGA) output, the card will support resolutions up to 2048 x 1536, which should be ok.

Sharp LCD LC-26SH12U

I am having exactly the same issue. I also had a similar issue witht a 17" Dell LCD monitor (minus the 'no input'). I was able to resolve that by loading the video drivers from the Dell site. It makes me think that we need a Sharp video driver but I have not been able to find any.
