Question about Westinghouse L1975NW Monitor

1 Answer

New resolution problem

I've been using this monitor for a while and have been able to set the resolution to 1440x900... then a few weeks ago it decided that was no longer an option and now only gives me 1400x1050 as the closest option... any ideas?

    I am having the same issue, This is not a driver problem. Read the post - it used to work, now it doesn't. I am beginning to think there is an issue with the monitor's DDC and EDID function.

The resolution of your monitor depends on the driver. If your driver supports for the resolution which you want you can set it otherwise its not possible to change.

I have installed viewsonic va1716w monitor using windows xp. I am unable to set its resolution to 1440X900. from display properties it going from 1024X768 to 1280X1024

It is possible that the video driver cannot support 1440X900 resolution.
Try installing the latest video driver and then try the higher screen resolution.

I recently purchased and installed the P191W monitor, and now my pictures are stretched. I was told I new to get a new graphics card. What card should I get? Or can I just update the driver? I am running...

Find your monitor's native resolution, in your case it's 1440x900. Go to display settings (usually right-click on desktop and choose properties), go to settings tab and move the resolution slider until it shows 1440x900. Confirm, the screen should flicker for a moment and adjust - and you should be fine.
If there is no 1440x900 resolution available, then installing a monitor .inf file that came on a disk accompanying the monitor might help.

Monitor resolution


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.

No 1440X900 Resolution Option in Display Settings

Windoze is not detecting the monitor correctly. Right click the desktop as you had before to get to the display settings. Click the "advanced" button at the lower right, on the next window, click the "Monitor" tab, and remove the check from the box from "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display". That should add to the settings the 1400 X 900 resolution you are looking for.

Hannspree 19" Widescreen resolution available

I have the same problem. i downloaded a generic driver that allows 1600 X 900 resolution. this is better..things are taller rather than wider (with the 1280X1024 resolution). i dont understand why there isnt a 1440X900 driver available for XP systems.

VIA Chrome9 HC IGP vs Samsung 940BW Plus (1440x900)

Assuming you're using the latest drivers from here , the next step would be to ask MSI for a bios upgrade that supports the higher resolution.

1440x900 resolution required

check and make sure that you are using the Intel drivers and not the default windows xp drivers. The default drivers are very limited and only offer a few different resolutions to choose from.
