Q: Resolution problem (max resolution: 1024x768)

Hey, recently i got a brand new GTX 1050 ti, and i knew it wouldn't have a VGA connector, so i purchased HDMI to VGA. I just installed the graphics card and installed its drivers everything. drivers seem to be working fine but max resolution is 1024x768, i even restarted the PC and tried reinstalling the graphics driver multiple times. But i'm still thinking it might be because of the HDMI to VGA adapter's fault

What are your thoughts about this?

My monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 920N 1280x1024 60Hz

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I am using a Dell Latitude CPi notebook, which has a NeoMagic MagicGraph256AV video card installed. For some reason, I can not get my monitor to display a 1024x768 resolution. When I try to, the screen blows up and half of it is not even on the screen. I did a few searches for info. on the video card, and from what I see, it is capable of handling a 1024x768 resolution. I have tried downloading a few drivers for it, but I'm not sure if maybe I'm getting the wrong ones because nothing has worked. Any help would be appreciated!
 

A:Can't use 1024x768 resolution

The CPi 233 series had only 800 x 600 resolution, later models had 1024 x 768.

Your description suggests you have the low res screen, that is the limitation, it's not set by the video adapter.

I've seen some similar threads to this already but none this new and none seemed solved...

I just bought an nvidia 480GTX and an LG W2753VC Monitor.
I'm running Vista x64.

I installed the monitor and included drivers and did likewise for the GPU, I was running a stretched desktop across my new and old Monitors (an old Hanspree XM 19"). Everything was fine up there in 1080p 1920x1080 resolution until I rebooted my computer a few hours later... Then my resolution reduced to 800x600 and my only option of increase is to 1024x768 which is appalling.

So I did a system restore and reinstalled all the drivers; nothing. I then manually deleted all the drivers and then reinstalled them; nothing. I then tried to repair my windows install via the CD; nothing. I've tried single monitors with both of them, my old monitor still churns out 1440x900 perfectly but I still can't get above 1024x768 with my new one. Because my old monitor isn't affected my instincts tell me that my problem is software related not hardware related. I know the monitor checks out because I had it manually tested before purchase, so it's got to be either the GPU or software right? But the GPU drives my old monitor like schumacker... So is it windows? If so how do I fix it, if not what is it?

Thanks in advance for all your replies and apologies for the long windedness of the post...

Some time ago, I purchased a Sharp XR-32X DLP with nativ resolution 1024x768.
I also built my own screen but decided to make it in 16:9 format, since most movies are in this standard.

Now to the problem:
Is there a way to limit the desktop to 16:9?

I don't want to change the resolution to 1024x576 since this is not supported by the projector, i only would like to limit the desktop to this resolution.
I also don't want the projector to streach the image, since this distorts the image maging circles oval etc.

This would mean having black stripes both over and under the picture which is fine!

Thankful for tips...

For reasons due to health and sight I like to use 1024x768 and not 1280x1024 on my 19"lcd monitor.
If I set it to 1024x768 then there is a gap top and bottom of the screen that cannot be moved.

In Windows XP I can set it to 1024x768 and there is no gap.

I reckon it must be driver issues in Windows 7.

I've had this driver running on all 6 of the Dell laptops I've had over the years, and never seen this.

I just had the screen die on this laptop, so I've plugged in a monitor. But the only two resolution options are 800x600 and 1024x768. I've reinstalled the Intel driver a few times, and while it's installing, the screen flashes to the proper native 1280x1024 resolution for a brief moment, but then never offers it as an option when done.

I had partial success when I uninstalled the driver, allowing the default windows driver (vgapnp.sys) to take over. It gave me access to a wide range of resolution settings, but prevented standby/hibernation, and had no OpenGL support. Then it would be overwritten automatically by Windows with some other copy of the GMA driver every time I would restart. So it wasn't really working out.

I've now reinstalled again, and I'm hoping someone knows of a way to force the correct resolution. There must be a way. How could one of the most ubiquitous graphics chipset/drivers in existence be this broken?

By the way, this is a Dell D520 with a T7200, 4GB RAM, and 945GM chipset.

So today when I booted up this computer the screen resolution had suddenly changed to 1024x768. When I went to change it back (my monitor is about 20 inches in size, so that resolution looks really bad) I found that I couldn't get a resolution higher than that, and the only other resolution available was 800x600. I've been trying to fix it-I restarted, tried to do a clean boot (which didn't do anything when I first restarted so I stopped trying), updated the nvida driver to the latest version, but nothing works. I thought it might have something to do with a game, because I got Fall of Cybertron just yesterday, which didn't cause any resolution problems when I played it yesterday but it could have been the culprit, but they're all limited to the same resolution settings too.

In case it helps, I'm running the 32bit version of Windows 7 and this is what my screen resolution menu looks like.

The problem is that although the resolution can be lowered, used part of the screen does not extend to the edges of the display, so everything maintains the same size, which means no advantage in readability - just loss in space.Is there a program which enables manipulating the positioning and the size of the visible windows screen in relation to the physical display of x200?

Ok - First off Im using a 32" Dynex TV as a monitor, hooked in through a VGA port on the TV. When I start my computer the screen jumps around and it says 'detecting signal', settles on 640x480 during boot When windows 7 starts to open it jumps again for a moment and goes to 1366x768 (the right setting for it) I was playing Metro 2033 and its too slow in 1366 so I reduced it to 1024x768 which apparently the TV cant do, it just went black, so it reset to 1366. I was trying various resolutions, some were too wide too skinny etc and accidentally clicked on 1024 again, screen went black and this time didnt revert. I restarted my computer and now after the 640 phase in boot it doesnt go to 1366 like it should but at the opening to windows 7 where you put in your password it switches to 1024, after it jumps to adjust a few times it goes black like in the game.. it tells me detecting signal (normal) then no signal detected (which is what it tells me if I have it on say component 1 with my xbox 360 turned off, or video 1 with my dvd player off, or even VGA with the computer off for that matter)

What Ive tried:
I tried turning the monitor off and on to see if I could adjust the settings back while it was adjusting before going black, but it just stays black...

I started up in safe mode, which was 800x600 and it was ugly but worked, I tried resetting the resolution but it only gave the base options (640, 800, 1024, 1280) and that was only for safe mode, it didnt hold when I ... Read more

A:monitor resolution issue - can I change my resolution from outside windows??

does the Nvidia card have any software which could manage screen resolutions? If so you can try that in safe mode....

Also, tap F8 on startup, but instead of safe mode chose "enable VGA mode" which should cause windows to boot normally, but in 800x600 (or something of the like, that just about all monitors and TV's support)

Hi. I'm new here and this is my first post. I looked around a little and found one other thread with a similar question, but the question wasn't really answered. I can't find anything on the net that doesn't confuse me so bad it makes my head hurt, so I thought I'd try asking here. Thanks in advance for any answers I get.

I will try and be as thorough as possible, although the resulting question will be simple. I'll start out with why I am asking the question to begin with.

So I am trying to play a game I used to play nearly ten years ago. It's a free online game called Continuum/Subspace and there are user created "zones" or variations of the game within the game (if that makes sense). I play in a zone called Trench Wars. It's a top down game, meaning you are looking down at your ship as if from above and the screen scrolls as you move to reveal more of the area (map) you are playing in. You are in a spaceship of your choice with varying weapons for each ship. The game requires aiming at your enemies before firing at them and anticipating their moves.

Well I noticed that playing at a higher resolution allows you to see more of your immediate area and expands your view of the map. It works just like your desktop in essence. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons, but the more space you have. In the game, the higher the resolution, the smaller the ships are, but you can see more space around you. Obviously, this would give an advantage to anyone playing ... Read more

A:Forcing Screen Resolution Higher Than Native Resolution

Simple answer is: you can not go over the native resolution of LCD panel because its physical thing for each pixel lcd panel has a cell you can not have more pixels than there is physical pixels in that panel.

smaller than native resolutions achieved by grouping more than one cell to form pixel thats why non native resolution on lcd sometimes gets blurry or edgy

I have a Sceptre 32-Inch LCD TV (X322BV) and I use an ASUS GeForce 440 video card. I am connected to the TV using a top of the line HDMI cable that has ethernet built in. I was using this cable to connect my computer to the TV and it displayed fine at 1360x768. This was great for my games and all other programs I was using. I attempted to install a new game called Metro 2033 and when I launched the game, it must have detected that my system is really good and set to display the resolution in 1080p. Now my TV does not support this display and now won't show anything except in safe mode, where the resolution is set to 1024x768. I am just not sure of how to get the computer to now NOT display in 1080p when I boot up windows normally. I have tried using the F8 menu to reset the resolution and everything. I am a competent computer tech who has much knowledge. However, I am just not sure how to change a resolution when you can't even see the screen and you can't see the screen because you can't change the resolution. It's a catch-22. I will never understand engineers or programmers in the least. PLEASE HELP! I have even hooked it up to a 1080p TV and turned the resolution down but when I hook it back up to the 720p TV the settings are still set at 1080p for some reason. It's like whatever display it's connected to, that's what settings it's going to use automatically. I am just out of options except for a re-format. PLEASE HELP!

A:Resolution stuck at 1080p; Resolution changed by game

Before I re-install the OS I would try this:
Boot up in Safe Mode and log in with an Admin account.
Uninstall the Device and Driver for the Video Card (see link below).
Re-boot in Normal mode, and Windows should detect and re-install the device.
Go from there to update the driver as needed.
Uninstall Device and Device Driver - Vista Forums

If that one game is the problem, I'd uninstall it or search for answers how to configure it to not cause the problem.

I also suggest learning System Backup Imaging, so going forward you can easily recover from problems without re-installing the OS and all programs.

Hope this helps,

Native Resolution for my monitor is 1366 x 768. It's a 32 inch computer monitor. The reason for buying bigger screen for the computer is so that I can have more desktop display area so that I don't have to scroll horizontally to have a clear helicopter view of my subject.

Only then I was made to understand that I am actually restricted by the monitor resolution and hence though my graphic card can support higher resolution, it won't work. So my problem right now is setting the graphic card with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 is giving me blurry images and text. The desktop display area is wide enough to satisfy my need but the blurring object is not acceptable.

My general question would be:
If the graphic card higher resolution doesn't help because it does not match the monitor, is there any smart software that can give me more desktop area with clarity given that resolution constraint? What other alternatives do I have without getting rid of my new monitor?

A:Graphic Card Resolution > Monitor Resolution

What graphics card do you have? Sounds like it is not powerful enough to fill the resolution you are looking for.

Hi all,

So I'm creating a program for a friend but we are having trouble trying to display things in a 1280 x 1024 resolution.

Is there any way to create a custom resolution on my laptop or monitor of 1280 x 1024? Our monitors don't have this resolution listed in the display settings, or is this a driver issue?

Cheers,
StubbyHS

A:How to change the monitor resolution to a custom resolution

The resolution availability can be affected due to the graphics card installed. I will have a think about any other factors which may affect the resolution.

Screen Resolution - Display Settings

The tutorial's information box explains which factors that affect your screen resolution availability.

Hope this helps,

Harry

i have a samsung monitor that have 2 slots, specifically for DVI & VGA
and i also have a GPU embeded: inno3d GT430 that also have 2 slots for VGA and DVI

i got this new DVI cable from a friend so i tried to upgrade my display from VGA to DVI

the problem is i cant see any differences between the two

things ive checked so far:
nvidia settings ressolution tab: converted it to 1920 x 1080, 1080p
windows resolution settings: 1920 x 1080 (Recommended)

so again, there are no differences between the two when i hooked them up, can anybody tell me any steps to make my display HD?

SPECS
core i3
4gbram
gt430
OS installed: win7 32bit

A:HD Resolution & Analog Resolution: they display the same output

Is it running at 1920 x 1080 ?

Why do you think you would see a difference ? VGA is analog and DVI is digital, that`s it, as far as I know.

Personally, I think Samsung monitors are terrible.

my desktop resolution is 1152x864, but i play my games at 1024x768, this causes my games to not fill up the whole screen. is there any way i can make it so i dont have to change any of my resolutions, but my game fills the whole screen?
 

A:resolution in games vs desktop resolution

Press the buttons in-front of your monitor and stretch the screen until it's full.
Otherwise, you can set your games to 1152x864 if your graphic card if powerful enough.

I had an IP address show up in an SA today and, though the IP falls within a defined AD subnet and site, the site did not appear in the UI.
Perhaps only coincidentally, the reverse DNS lookup for the IP did not resolve either.

This problem started happening about a week ago and I've never had a problem like this before. The problem is that often (but not always) when I start a game, it goes into full screen and it will usually change the resolution like mosts games do, except when I either exit the game normally, or alt+tab out of it, the resolution does not change back to normal. I have my desktop resolution set at 1024x768 normally. This seems to hold true for almost all my games. Even the windows screensaver causes the same problem if it changes the resolution.

After this happens, if I go into display properties and try to change any settings whether it is resolutuon, color depth, or even the refresh rate. I get an error that says it can't be done and I probably don't have administrative rights. The only way to fix it is to reboot the computer.

My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce4 MX 420. Around when the probelms started I updated the drivers to some beta drivers from the Nvidia site. I assumed those might be the cause so I downgraded to the latest official foreceware drivers which I had installed before. The only other things I can think of that I have installed before the problem occoured was the new Microsoft Anti-spyware but I doubt that would have caused it.

Does anyone have any idea what is causing this problem? I am out of ideas...
