Picture not as sharp as I think it should be. Monitor says my video card won't support the recommended WXGA+ (1440 X 900). I want to upgrade but having never done this before I don't want to go over board getting a new card that does more than I need it to do . I basically use my computer for printing pictures from my camera or playing on line games that are not that into graphics but I do watch some DVD at times.

Hook a spare monitor to the computer, if the same symptoms occur the problem is the Video Graphics Card in the computer, but if the picture is okay, it is clearly the LG Flatron that has the problem, and if possible sub the video cord from the computer to the monitor just to be sure.
Hello davidhague99 , Check your VGA cable if connected properly to your CPU or Video Accelerator Card,if connected properly,try another VGA cable and if the problem persist you need to try another source. hope it helpsthanks
Hello, This sounds like bad resolution is set on your computer. The LG 22" FLATRON monitor has a native resolution of 1680 x 1050. However, your video card may not support this so you can also try any other 16:10 resolution like 1440 x 900.
To change your resolution in Windows XP: 1. Access the Control Panel. 2. Choose "Display". 3. Click the "Settings" tab. 4. Under "Screen resolution" move the slider to a 16:10 resolution like 1680 x 1050 or 1440 x 900.
If you computer does not support higher resolutions, you may consider replacing your video card to take full advantage of your nice 22" Flatron monitor.
Reconnect your old monitor.
Set the screen-resolution to 800-by-600 at 60 Hertz.
Connect the new monitor.
The new monitor will be detected, and will run at 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.
Change the screen-resolution to some higher value that both the new monitor, and your older video-card, will allow.
t certainly seems like the monitor is not getting a signal. Did this
happen after you changed something, or just on normal boot up? It could be the video card that has failed. Also, check the pins on the connector; sometimes they can get pushed in. If you can, try swapping out the video card or use the monitor on another computer. Good luck,
