Question about Sharp LC 28HM2 28 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I have a Nvidia Geforce 7800 GT graphics card with the most recent driver and DirectX 9.0c, but for some reason when I go to settings on my desktop it wont let me increase the Resolution any higher than 1024 x 768.
I have no idea what's limiting this, anyone know how to sort that out?
First, you might want to check what the maximum supported resolution of your monitor is. You can do this by looking it up on the internet or referring to the owners manual. If you cant find that information, in your graphics properties in Windows XP, click the advanced button beneath the color settings and click the monitor tab. Make sure the model listed under 'Monitor Type' matches the monitor you have. If it does, see if the 'Hide modes that this monitor cant display' box is checked. If so, the maximum resolution is limited by your monitor and you may have to upgrade the monitor to go any higher. If the model does not match, you can try the following: click Properties->Driver Tab-> Update Driver and either load the correct ones from the manufacturers web site or use one of the Standard Monitor types provided by the windows Driver library. Be warned though: If you select a standard type with resolution higher than your monitor supports, it will not display correctly at settings higher than 1024x768, and you may have to wait for windows to change the resolution back. Another thing you can try is unchecking the 'Hide modes that this monitor cant display' box, clicking ok, and setting the resolution to something higher than 1024x768, but the same warning applies! If it does not display correctly than you know for sure that the monitor is the limiting factor.
