My HP 8510w is running 1680x1050 resolution, but the Samsung 225BW does not pickup this resolution, instead running 1400x1040. Therefore the screen looks odd and out of sync!

Not all monitors can display the resoluton that graphics cards output. You will just have to choose a resolution that you can use comfortably, or buy a monitor that will accept a 1680x1050 input.

Hope this helps.

Hi Jessica,
Dell E228WFPC/E228WFP does support displays with 1920x1080 set resolution via DVI connection while it is restricted to validated Dell brand displays:
  • The restriction applies to resolution higher than 1680x1050 via DVI connection.
  • No restriction with VGA connection, which supports up to 1920x1200.

If you use a DVI connection set your computer's resolution to 1680x1050.

Need a video card that will allow us to hook up a new wide screen monitor that requires 1080dp. Don't know which video/graphics card will work.


The short answer is no. The belief that widescreen HD monitors require special video cards derives from a combination of two sources. First, most Windows users know that you can change the display resolution by right clicking on the desktop, clicking on settings, and then choosing a resolution from a drop-down menu. What most users do not know is that the choices displayed in that drop down menu are what Windows, the Video Card manufacturer, and the Monitor's manufacturer want you to see. The fact is, most video cards are capable of displaying popular widescreen resolutions such as 1680x1050 dpi and 1920x1080 HD which are 16:10 and 16:9 resolutions.

Cannot Display This Video Mode... Optimum resolution 1680X1050 60Hz. This is all I can see, How can change the resolution back to resolution that I can display?


Reboot your PC and press F8 just before Windows loads to get it to load using safe mode, which you select from a list (You may have to continuously press F8). Once you have loaded in safe mode, select the correct resolution for your monitor then reboot the PC normally. You should now be able to see the screen correctly.

What video card is in my computer?


You can right click the mouse on the windows desktop and select PROPERTIES, there you select the SETTINGS tab and look for a resolution slider, move it and see if you can find the resolution you need.

To find out what video card you have, you can click on the ADVANCED button on that same SETTINGS tab. It will open a new window where you will need to click on the ADAPTER tab. There will be the info on the graphic card, the resolutions it can support will be listed on the LIST ALL MODES... button.

Take into account you might have an integrated graphics card, so it may be necessary to know the manufacturer of the motherboard in order to find an updated driver that supports the new resolutions of new wide screen monitors.

Any other doubt on this subject feel free to ask on this same post.

Intel 82845G Graphics doesn't support 1680x1050


You also have to install the monitor drivers.
And yes, the drivers directly from Intel will not work. Dell has a perpritory video, and you have to use the Dell Intel drivers.

I've installed a few of these, and I know they will work.
But I had to go with a 1280x1040 setting. It does work, and will fill the entire screen.

Another option is to put in a PCI video card (yes, a full size card will fit in the GX260's) One bonus to that is you can do multiple monitors. I've had best luck in the GX260's using video cards with an ATI chipset.

Hello; I have just bought the 20" HPw2007v monitor which is excellent, but I have a small screen that pops up when I turn on which says `recommended settings 1680 x 1050-60Hz; current settings, 1024 x...


It's asking you to change the display settings to match the capability of the new monitor. You're seeing distortion because the monitor settings don't match what your video card is putting out.

Go to Start/Control Panel/Display then choose the Settings Tab.

Change the screen resolution to 1680x1050 by moving the slider to the right. Press OK and the screen will change. When it asks if you want to keep the settings, you have 15 seconds to accept them.

It's possible that your video card does not support the higher settings of your new monitor.

Your user manual's Chapter 4 discusses adjustments to the display properties by using the front panel buttons or the "My Display" software from your installation CD.

If you don't have the manual, you can download it here:

Acer x213W - setting the resolution


Sorry about the delay. I also just purchased an Acer x213w and had some trouble setting up my computer in order to achieve the optimum resolution of 1680x1050.

I'm using an HP Pavilion m7170n, so it's a bit old and thus could not support this widescreen resolution. However, my computer comes with an ATI Radeon graphics card and, upon contacting HP Support, was allowed to download ATI's "Catalyst Control Centre". After installation, these drivers added the option of selecting a screen resolution of 1680x1050 from Desktop properties.

So this is my solution to you: simply google your graphics card along with 1680x1050 driver and hopefully you'll be able to download a driver update which does the same for you as it did for me.

Media edition Powerpoint portability and projection problem


Do you have a wide screen monitor?
If so you would be running at 1680x1050 or something similar.
Set your screen to 1280*1024.
Then resize you PPT to look good in that resolution.
The 1280*1024 res is more square than 1680x1050 which is for widescreen LCD's.
let me know if this works or not.
Thanks

You could check your DPI setting in the display, being a large monitor your DPI setting shoul be up around the 75 - 85 Hertz.
To access this
Control Panel --> Display --> Settings --> Advanced --> Monitor and then click the drop down box and see what the DPI is set to and keep trying the different options until it is clear.
Hope this helps.
