Problem with the P5VDC-MX to display 1680x1050 resolution
Bought a new SamSung 226BW monitor but when I changed the resolution setting to 1680x1050...screen just flickered and jittered like crazy. Frequency is set to 60Hz(recommended) but I also tried different frequency..no luck.
Already updated Bios(version 0805 ofr P4M800 Pro dated Jun 20 2007), also updated the S3 Unichrome Pro IGP driver from its website....also updated Samsung latest driver...still same problem.

Wide screen monitor distortionDepending upon the screen resolution that has been set inDisplay, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors. Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down theShift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle). Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolutionslider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle imageto the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then changethe screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied withthe image of the circle. When you are satisfied then click apply.
It may be that your display resolution is set for a resolution not supported by your monitor. Since you did not specify the type of monitor or operating system I suggest that you go to Control Panel and select Display or Personalization and set your resolution to something like 1024 x 768 60 hz and see if you have the same problem. If the problem has disappeared then select a resolution compatible with your monitor.
The on-board graphics is not capable of that resolution. You will have to install a video card with at least 512 MB graphics memory to get there. You may be pushing the limits of this motherboard and should consider an upgrade.
First open cpu cabinet then pull RAM memory and pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes then when you press power button press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode .
Then go to dispaly property then change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and then check.
Your resolution is based on your video cards capabilities. If your still using the originalon-board, integrated video I doubt if you'll be able to reach such resolution. Open control panel, open Display. Click the Settings Tab. You will notice Screen resolution & there is a slide bar. Sliding the bar to More will increase the resolution. You'll see what the max is for your video card. As to your LCD monitor it's max resolution is capable of reaching 1680x1050. Keep in mind the word " capable ".
If you need that kind of resoluton you'll need to find a AGP video card that can go that high.
Hey there alcouto, your motherboard supports Intel Celeron, Intel Pentium 4, and Intel Pentium D processors. The socket set is LGA775. The FSB should be no higher than 800Mhz. It appears you have purchased the wrong CPU for your board. I hope the rest of the info helps you on your next purchase. Good Luck!
