Unable to set resolution to 1440 x 900

I have a balance pc (desktop) with a Viewsonic 1703wb lcd monitor that supports 1440 x 900 p, but the maximum resolution I can get is 1280 x 768. Does the Intel 845GV chipset support this resolution? I've tried using Powerstrip to add the new resolution with no success. Thanks.

I also have the same monitor and face the same problem. But the solution lies that you will have to buy a graphics card that can give out the resolution that your monitor is best made for. 1440 x 990.

Incase you really want at 1440 x 990.  buy a graphics card depending on your motherboard. (agp or pci-e).

hope this helps.

Eric -

Resolution limitations are primarily determined by the video card within the system, the resolution of the LCD is secondary. First thing I would do is look through the documentation for your video card(or for your motherboard, if video is integrated within the motherboard), and see what resolutions are supported. If your system's video output can handle higher than 1280x768 output, then I would look through the user guide for the LCD. If both the video card AND the LCD support higher resolutions than 1280x768, you should download and install the most recent drivers available for your video card from its manufacturer's web site.

Hope this helps!

I have a Dimension 8250....when I visit any site that streams video, the video is extremely choppy with frequent freezes. I only have 1 GB of RAM installed; is that my problem?

Your problem is that your desktop is at least 7-8 years old. No amount of upgrades to your computer can bring it up to handle streaming videos or other applications of today's technologies.Even if you tried to upgrade your computer it cost you close to $300 to 500. You can go to Walmart and a purchase monitor, and computer for around $500. The life expectancy of a computer is 3-5 years. Not saying that it will break down, it becomes outdated.

Says change resolution to 1920x1080

To change the resolution of your monitor, right click your desktop and click Properties. Go to the Settings tab, and then drag the slider in the Screen Resolution box all the way to the right. That should make it 1920x1080. Click OK and then your resolution should change.

The PC video resolution is set to the native resolution of this monitor for best pictures?
Common failure in this monitor is failed caps as shown in my pictures here:

How do i increase resolution on my laptop. Was not able to dwnload a casino game

Depending on your operating system, you can change the resolution one of two ways:
On Windows XP, right click on your desktop and click Properties, then click the Settings tab.
On Windows Vista/7, right click the desktop and select Screen Resolution, there you have it.
You'll see a resolution slider in the window. The value to the far right on the slider is the maximum resolution supported by your monitor (though some CRT monitors may have trouble displaying very high resolutions).

What is the biggest wide screen monitor can I get to use with the Dimension 2400 and the integrated video?

The monitor (19-inch, non-flat screen, 0.24 dot pitch) presented a more than acceptable image, even at its maximum supported resolution (1600X1200 @ 75Hz). We settled on a more reasonable 1280x1024 @ 85Hz as our preferred setting. According to the documentation, the recommended resolution is 1280x1024 @ 75Hz .Many of the newer LARGE monitors are limited to 60Hz and/or a larger dot pitch...So..look for a low dot pitch(below 0.27) and the ability to run at 1280X1024@75Hz . Passed that, the size is up to you.

Do I need to upgrade my video card before using a Dell 24 inch monitor with a Dell Dimension 2400

Technically, no.

However you probably won't be able to use your monitor's maximum resolution unless you do. However, if you don't you'll still be able to see the video. I recommend trying it without upgrading first and see if what you have currently supports your monitor's resolution. If you don't like the available resolutions, then you can upgrade.

Viewsonic VX2265wm 12o Hz monitor

That's a lot of information and possible problems areas. You need the driver for the Viewsonic screen first of all.. Why do you need to drive the screen at that frequency? you won't notice anything above 85Hz anyway.. I am assuming you have the correct drivers for you video card adn that it is correctly configured for the resolution and frequncy. That video card can drive high resolutions adn high freq's. But if you're only getting those two options then it appears to be a driver option. Get/load the Viewsonic screen driver first.

Out of range external monitor

The max resolution supported by that LCD HDTV is 1366 x 768. If your screen resolution in XP is set higher than that, you'll run into issues. Reduce your screen resolution first, then run the nVidia multiple display setup.
