Question about Computers & Internet

My asus vw202 widescreen 20" monitor refuses to go any higher than a resolution of 1024 x 768. It's supposed to go up to 1680 x 1050. My graphics card is an nvidia 7300gs which should definitely go beyond 1024 x 768 - I have friends running higher than this on lower power graphics. I'm using the Asus monitor driver downloaded from their site. I have had the monitor higher, briefly - then it suddenly shrinks the display to half the screen - and refuses to go beyond 1025 x 768. I've returned the monitor once to PC world - where it appeared to work - however maybe this is anintermittent fault. Any ideas ?

Uninstall the ASUS driver and get the nVidia driver instead. your card and monitor is capable of going higher than 1024x768.

Hi,
. Since you checked the monitor on your friends computer and it works fine .You have replaced the video card and there is no joy. The problem can be because of two things .
1. Problem with the motherboard as you have suspected it to be
2. The operating system files are causing some fault with the operating system

Have you uninstalled the video card driver , and checked the monitor on default windows driver. Also on the your motherboard do have the integrated VGA connector.? Try checking it there
It would be a help if you give the model and make your computer. If its an assemebled machine , give the model of the motherboard

Thanks
Proton

Try uninstalling the monitor driver. You dont require one. It is supposed to be plug n play. The nVidia graphics card should definitely be able to get you the higher resolution you need.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further queries, please post back with steps undertaken and results.

Cheers!

Hi

Check the user manual

Thank you

    HI

    First we want to see the user manual carefully so that we can understood that it will support the mother board. Ur monitor can support the 1680 x 1050. But check whether ur mother board will support that.
    If its not supported means u can not get that resolution ok. So u need to change the mother board ok..

    See this link for supported operating modes..

    Thank you

My computer monitor shows a message "out of range". I can't get rid of the message or show anything from my computer.


The resolution your computer is sending is greater than the maximum support resolution of your monitor that isn't working or is a resolution not supported. Connect one of the monitors that works and turn down the resolution to something small (800x600 or 1024,768) and then switch to the original monitor back, you should see a picture and can adjust the resolution to something larger that the monitor supports.

As for your 15" LCD BENQ Monitor, "1024 x 768" pixels is the Maximum Resolution
If you increase your screen higher than the Maximum resolution you get a black screen! because the monitor cannot support the resolution higher than "1024x768" pixels.

Re ACER V203H 20" monitor - appearance. Why is the image size only 16" with black margins approx 2" on left and righthand sides? I bought this monitor brandnew - thought it was widescreen. If I change...


It is definetly a widescreen the issue is either with your display card or your resolution setting you need to check both. If you would have told me wether your display is through mother board or scsi card the model of mother board or the display card then i could fix the issue easilly.

Images on laptop screen are a little vertically "squeezed" (round images appear a little oval).


Change to a higher resolution. If you have a widescreen monitor, your resolution should be something like 1600 X 900 or a similar widescreen format. It sounds like you have a standard format resolution on a widescreen monitor. Play around with your display settings, when you change a setting, it gives you 15 seconds to agree to the change or it will reset to its original resolution before the change, so play around until you find one you like. You can always re-arrange your desktop icons after you get the resolution the way you want.

Hi There! My Acer x223w monitor is floating a "Input Not Supported" box that will not go away any suggestions?


The documentation for this monitor should list its supported resolutions, and you will need to attach another monitor that supports a greater (possibly lower or higher) range of resolutions and then set it to one of the supported resolutions for the monitor. The native resolution appears to be 1680x1050, although I cannot find online documentation directly from Acer.

Not sure how detailed you need, but here is the user guide from Asus:

Distorted screen


Youre problem is because when a widescreen monitor is fed with a signal that is not ws it stretches the image sideways making people look short and fat. The only way to really fix this is to make sure the graphics card is providing a widescreen resolution to the monitor. In this case the native resolution (the resolution the screen looks best at) is 1680 x 1050 . If you right click ur desktop and go down to properties and settings u want to change the screen resolution to a widescreen res.

Hopefully 1680 x 1050 ... if this is unavailable try 1440 x 900

If you have an nvidia graphics card you can also go to the nvidia control panel and change the resolution attributes. If the widescreen res isnt available u could also try the 'change flat panel scaling' and select the do not scale option.

Please note before starting any of this make sure u have the latest graphics and monitor drivers available.
