In this case the graphics card you have is not powerful enough to handle the monitor's optimal resolution. This means that you will have to replace your graphics card if you hope to reach the resolution your monitor was designed for

How to Adjust Computer Resolution and What needs to be Considered

Everybody likes a nice looking display but of course it's beyond our control. Check out the things that we need to consider about the resolution adjustment.<br /> <ol> <li>The highest resolution of the monitor.</li> <li>The resolution of the Video card.</li></ol> Why? The monitor can only handle a limited resolution let's say you have a monitor that has a resolution of 800X600 and you have a video card with a resolution of 1280X1024, you can increase the resolution up to 1280X1024 but since your computer can only handle up to 800X600 the display will look really bad like a double vision. I hope you got the Logic of that. Now, if you want to increase the resolution of your computer consider both the monitor and the video card. Of course it would be best if both the video card and the monitor has equivalent resolution or much better the monitor to have a higher resolution than the video card for upgrade purposes.<br /> <br /> Now, to adjust the computer's resolution:<br /> <ol> <li>Right Click on your desktop</li> <li>Click on Personaliza</li> <li>Click on the Settings tab</li> <li>There you will find the drop down for the resolution of the video card</li> <li>Select the desired resolution. The higher the resolution the finer it looks</li> <li>If it gets blurry or bad, it means that the monitor cannot handle that certain resolution, so lower it down.</li> <li>Click Apply</li> <li>Click OK</li></ol> There you go! Should you have any questions feel free to post a reply on this post and i'll be more than happy to help you out with it.

Nvidia geforce 9400gt 1gb card problem

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.

Poor Resolution on Monitor 2

what u can do is.... 1) Backup your Registry first

2) go to Regedit....Start>Run>Regedit
(this is assuming u have latest Nvidia driver's installed)
In global. Make a new KEY called NVTWEAK
In this key, make a new DWORD value called Coolbits now, change the value of coolbits to 3.
Now when you do into Settings for GFX and advanced will notice a CLOCK SPEED/FREQUENCY tab. Change them.....go up like 20mhz....or 30 or 50...too high will screw ur card...too low isn't worth the trouble.
So, slowly go up little by little until you notice s--- on ur screen that's dodgy..then just fall back behind that Freq.
Also....another fan taking heat AWAY from the GFX card wouldn't do any harm either.

Monitor resolution vs video controller

The limitation is set by your video adapter. You will have to replace the current card with one that is compatible with 1920X1200. No work around on that one since it is hardware.

Upgrading graphics card

according to the manufacture your card has the resolution up to 2048 X 1536 that is higher than what the monitor is telling you to set your resolution to. try going into your display options and ajust the resolution down to 1600 X 900. Also since your monitor is a dell an new it should come with an set-up disk for that monitor that should once intalled set the monitor to the correct graphics setting for you so you do not have to go through and do it manually. did your come with a disk? If not here is the link to download the drivers for your monitor.
