    I am running a MAC. There is no such thing as a right click.
    Under my monitor resolution settings the only listing is 640 x 480. All the other options are gone. How do I get them back?

    I have tried reinstalling my OS and also Disc First Aid...nothing seems to help.

    My Mac came with a 16" Sony Trinitron Multiscan G220 monitor so I switched it back to that. The monitor resolution was OK with the Sony for quite awhile...but now it does not give me any resolution options to chose from. What is the problem???

Try updating the software for your video card and that should do the trick.. By the way was this working fine before changing the resolution?

Your video card is incompatible with your your LCD monitor. You might need to upgrade your video card. To see the list of compatible video cards with your Mac model, pls go to this link:

It is not your monitor, more the graphics card. Try reinstalling the OS, or try updating from the apple menu.

Run Disk Utility and Repair Permissions. Then do a Repair Disk. Disk Utility should be in your Apps Folder - under Utilities.

Have you tried updating your graphics card? Go to ATI's website and try updating your video card and hopefully that solves your problem. Go to amd.com and go to ATI tab to update your driver. I forgot ATI is under AMD's umbrella

It could be that one of the computers supports analog and the other supports digital. You should be able to switch between the two input methods directly from your monitor via the buttons in the front.
