HD Resolution & Analog Resolution: they display the same output

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

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?

core i3
OS installed: win7 32bit

Preferred Solution: HD Resolution & Analog Resolution: they display the same output

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

Ok some specifics:
Aopen AK77 MB
AMD 2000+ Thoroughbred
767 effective RAM
nVidia G force 440 on AGP1
Board is 4x-8x AGP capable
Power supply 350Watt (guesstimate) Got a larger one in the wings if necessary.
Now what I need:
Just to be able to run this thing at "native" resolution in VGA mode.
Currently running 1600x900......No real gaming intended so cheap,old whatever card will do but I'm having a real hard time finding a card that lists this resolution in ANALOG (VGA) mode........ Acer and Samsung must have sold thousands of these monitors, yet the video support isn't there apparently....
Seems some just say that in analog they just won't look good but I have to see this for myself.
This has probably been asked a millon times so apologies ahead of time...

A:Analog 1680-1050 Resolution. What cards?

Check out the cards at Newegg, Zipzoomfly, Outpost, and Directron. They will be AGP 8X cards, and you will find maximum resolution output in the specifications. When they don't list it, it is not there.

from what I've got, starting from t440, all t series are using ips display, which means it uses edp connection right? That make me wonder what is the maximum resolution of that edp connect can output. Can I swap in a 14" 4k panel with better way better color accuracy than the stock ones? or is there any type of bios blacklist that prevent me from doing that?

My wife's pc when she first hooked it up via dvi she was able to get 1080P but when she got an hdmi ( one that came with my new monitor lol) she can't get higher than 720P, any ideas how to up her resolution? She switched to hdmi so she could get sound from her TV she is using as a monitor. I didnt need the HDMI for mine even though my monitor has built in speakers I have usb speakers I prefer to use for movies, and I have turtle beach px5's I use for gaming. I digress how do we fix her resoultion issue?

A:PC resolution output issue

You're gonna have to use the built-in TV settings to change from 720p to 1080p. 720p is generally the more common resolution than full 1080 so the TV may have defaulted to it when you switched over from DVI.

First question; VGA has an unlimited resolution out put correct? If not what is it limited too?

I'm trying to get 1920x1080 resolutions for my desktop and games, but my monitor only has VGA, Svideo, and HDMI.

With VGA it caps its self at 1680x1050, nothing I do will fix this no drivers reformatting etc. I don't know what it is.

With HDMI it wil do the 1920x1080p resolution (according to windows and the little info message built into my TV) BUT it only takes up the screen in a 4:3 ratio, so 25% black on the left, 50% of my tv is being taken up by the desktop and then 25% on the right is black. It doesn't even look like the pixels in the black area are turned on.

The HDMI works fine with an Xbox.

I'm using a xfx Radeon 6790 1gb

Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
Looking at the Platform Specifications of Yoga 720 13" it says Max resolution: [email protected]  using DP port. And IMHO it can output [email protected] if you are using DP port only according to this. But the monitor which you have mentioned doesn't have DP input. 
I hope the above information helped you.

Alright, so I recently got a VGA cable so I can hook up my PC Laptop to my tv. It worked fine at first, but I needed to optimize the resolution to my TV. I set it to only show the screen on the TV, and accidentally chose a resolution unsupported by my TV. Now every time I plug in the VGA, that unsupported resolution is saved and outputs it, even though it doesn't work, and I cannot change it into a resolution that works because I can't see anything! How can I reset the saved resolution?

Sorry if I get some of the technical terms wrong, I have a laptop (HP Probook 450) which has a display with 1366x768 max resolution, I want the graphics driver to output 1920x1080 on the screen, dont care if I lose some details,

I want something similar to what happens when you set a game to 1080p in settings and it is the downscaled to be able to show on the screen, but I want something like that on the windows interface,

Notes. I tried Custom Resolution Utility, did not work,

and tried intel advanced settings but it tells me my monitor does not support advanced settings in intel control panel

my laptop has the intel 4600 graphics and AMD HD 8750m , but I think the intel one is responsible for outputting windows

Any help will be appreciated


A:How to make my laptop output downscaled custom resolution?

You can't, the 1366x768 is actually the number of physical pixels in the screen. Thus the maximum resolution.

There is no point in downscaling 1920x1080 there is nothing to be gained. You just lose some quality and speed due to processing within the monitor (an external one).

You can use a higher resolution monitor externally via the HDMI port.

Hello !I have a brand new L570 with Intel HD 620 Graphics only and Idon't know how to get more than 41 Hz on a brand new 27" Acer monitor.There is no option above 1920x1080 when I plugin the monitor (I'm using a Display Port to HDMI - L570 does not have a HDMI port) and I'm forced to set up a custom resolution. With that setting I'm getting the 1440p, but no more than 41Hz. Working on 41Hz is not a pleasure experience - my eyes feel tired after 1 hour. A friend of mine has a a Lenovo with 520 Intel Graphics and has no problems running the exact same monitor on 70Hz 1440p.He is achieving this setting without setting custom resolutions or anything, just with plugging the monitor and choosing the resolution. - All current drivers are installed (plus monitor)- I tried older versions of the driver-still the same thing.- I noticed that when I disable the Intel Driver from Device manager, the resolution stays at 2650x1440p at 64Hz, which is great, but it's not a fix. After installing the driver again - the problem comes back, please help!Is there a version of a driver for Intel 620 HD that works with 1440p monitors that I can use without issues or is there any other way to fix this?Thank you in advance !Best,Emil

Hi guys,

I have a Samsung Series 6 LED TV 46-inch, which fully supports 1080p. So, I am trying to output my laptop (system specs) at 1080p via HDMI. The TV recognizes my computer, and displays it. When I go to 'Screen Resolution' and select 1080p for my TV, it outputs, but it outputs a bigger screen than I can see. Meaning, a sizable portion of the taskbar and gadget space (right side of the screen) is cutoff. But, the full screen is being used so... Well, I'm just stuck. Help would be appreciated as I want to watch movies via HDMI on my TV.


A:Output 1920 x 1080 resolution to Samsung Series 6 LED TV

That's the "overscan" area being cut off..

Some TVs allow you to turn off overscan, but then on normal TV you will see the Closed Captioning data and other tweaky stuff...

So the preferred way is to have the video driver "shrink" the image area. Ususualy there is a page on the video card control panel for "sizing" the display. What it does is lower the actual display resolution by a few pixels on all sides but still outputs the full 1080P to the monitor, that way you can fit the entire screen on the TV.

So hopefully you have at least one of those options to work with.

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.

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??

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.

I recently bought a new computer from Dell. It's a Dell Optiplex 780. Here in the office, we run three 19" displays per computer, so I had them install an Nvidia Quadro NVS 420 graphics card. The specs on the card from Nvidia's website say that it supports up to four displays at "2560x1600 through DisplayPort, 1920x1200 through Single Link DVI-D". I actually called Nvidia and asked them specifically if the card supports 1024x1280 @60Hz resolution, and they say it does.

In setting up the computer, I connected a Dell P190Sb monitor. The specifications on the monitor say the native resolution is 1280 x 1024 @60 Hz. The problem is that I cannot select that resolution in the resolution dialog box. I get choices of 1280x720, 1024x768, and 800x600.

So, if the monitor supports it, the graphics card supports it, why can't I select the appropriate resolution for the monitor?

I have downloaded and updated the video drivers from Nvidia's website. In trouble shooting with Dell's tech support, we updated the Bios and monitor drivers, and still no resolution to the problem. Dell is ready to have us ship the systems back to them (we bought two).

I found a number of articles online complaining about the way Windows Vista and Windows 7 use the EDID data that is supposed to be supplied by the monitor. In reading this thread:

Did you install it and is windows identifying the correct monitor model?And just so we're on the same page, you did also first uninstall the old drivers then re-install the upgraded drivers (forceware 93.71) for the video card itself from the Nvidia link here?You may also wish to try a somewhat older version here. It's the one I still use because it's the most stable I have found for my system.The only reason I can see that the add button wouldn't be there is that the monitor is not being identified correctly, either because of the driver or the monitor itselfIf you have done the above and have another monitor laying around, preferably a crt, temporarily hook it up and see if the "add" button is now an option. If it is, add the new resolution settings then hook up your new monitor. It's a long shot but worth a try. You also want to start in a lower resolution then the one you're trying to add. Bump it down to an ugly 800x600, then see if the add button is an option. You should altimatetly end up with a menu resembling thisLet us know what you come up with.

Have a GTX 560TI gpu running W10 and a Samsung S23C650 monitor
normally set to 1970 x 1080
Today a driver update program was run (Drive Booster 4) to check for driver update, and now I have only 1024 x 768 as max resolution - assume the driver update program did this. (though 'could' be coincidence)

If I go to settings it only shows 1024 x 768 (or lower)
If I go to Nvidia control panel it also only shows 1024 x 768 and lower

The adapter states driver is
Monitor is shown as Generic plug & play - there is no W10 driver on Samsung site

I tried system restore to before Driver update run - this has not cleared the fault.

A:Display resolution lost

Use System Restore to roll back before you ran that utility. Then I'd promptly uninstall that utility and never use any such utility again as they are not needed and cause these sort of issues.

You can manually choose to update the drivers at any time using the proper manufacturer's installation program from their website which is located here: http://www.geforce.com/drivers

The monitor does need a driver, only the video card.

The last few days, after having computer on for 5 hours or so, the screen goes blank and shuts down.
When I restart it the screen resolution is way lower than it should be at 1920x1200 for a 24" screen.
The display is almost like it is in safe mode but after booting up it doesn't say safe mode.
I go into change resolution and it shows 800x? a very low resolution and that box is grey and won't allow me to change it to 1920x1200.

Is this a sign of the card going bad or is there a quick fix for this problem?

If I turn it off for an hour or two it will boot up with the correct resolution. No it is not set for hibernating.
Any and all help appreciated.

Have you checked temperatures ?
Maybe it is overheating for a faulty fan or dust ???
HWMonitor has a free version that might help.

They also have a portable/standalone version if you don't want to install it.

Okay, first off, I know this is a very odd question.

I have a small display I want to use with an old junky PC. The software I am going to run on it would get by with 320x240 display res, or 320x200, or if possible, 275x 232. The thing is, of course, those aren't common resoloutions for use in MS windows. I want to run either Windows 98 SE, or Windows 95b.

Is there any way to tweak anything to force Windows to use any of the above mentioned display resolutions? Or are there drivers out there that I just haven't stumbled upon?

Thanks alot,

Hey guys,

I just updated my windows (windows 7 home premium 64 bit) and now the resolution of my screen went down from 1600*900 to 1152*864. I cant set the resolution higher again, because my windows says that this is the highest possible resolution. All my video drivers are up to date.

I hope that you can help me, the low resolution is very annoying.

Welcome to SF astiiscool

What LCD/CRT you have? also let us know about your system specs. Try uninstalling the Display Driver and re-installing it and if you can find the driver for your LCD/CRT from the official website of the manufacturer so it can help to solve the issue at some point though Win 7 supports all kinds of display resolutions that a LCD/Monitor's has

i cannot change my display resolution or color resolution from 16 bit, the only options i have r 2 color and 16 bit, how do i get to install/use higher resolution??, i recently formatted my hard drive and had to reinstall win 98, i installed a driver for sound card so i have sound again, but the resolution has me stumped, any suggestions??, thanks a million...shauna

A:display resolution cannot change

If you don’t have a CD with your video driver on it you will have to download it from the manufacturer’s site.

You normally install it through device manager – right click My Computer>Properties>Device manager and double left click on display adapters and then your card.

Hi all. So I turned on my laptop (Dell inspiron e1505, Vista Home ed, W/ NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300 graphics driver) and the screen was divided into 4 quadrants, with the same thing on each. After 2 restarts, its back to full screen, yet the resolution won't go above 1024 x 768.

System info on the graphics card reads "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

Also, there is a reported problem with Microsoft ISATAP Adapter 2, which reads "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"

Not sure what the second thing is. Any ideas on what the problem is or how to fix it? The laptop is a couple months shy of being 4 years old. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A:Display/ Resolution Problem

I tried re-installing the graphics card driver, but no dice.

Also, oddly, my computer has refused to hibernate today.

Seem like two unrelated problems however they both appeared on the same day.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd be much obliged.

That's something that has been bothering me for a long time and finally I've decide to look for some comments on that from fellow Windows users...

Here's the thing: I'm using two displays with my laptop - it's own built-in display and the external monitor. The native resolution of both devices is 1920x1080 pixels, so my belief is that they should display exactly the same contents. But that's not true - see the attached pictures: they present the same webpage displayed on the external monitor (1) and the built-in display (2). As you see the built-in display "cuts off" a considerable amount of page and the visible space is smaller than on an external screen.

But why? The resolution is exactly the same, so I believe what both screens display should also match. Can anyone tell me why it's not true?

A:Display space different with the same resolution set

OK for those having similar riddle - here's the solution, simplest of all...

The thing was that for laptop the setting in Control Panel => Display (Change size of all items) was different than for the external display. For laptop the slider was in the middle and for external display it was set at the minimum (Smaller). After making them in the same position the screens are the same.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RC (6.1.7100)
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT, driver version 185.81 (the latest version on nvidia.com at the moment)
Monitor: LG Flatron F920P (CRT)

After Windows installation has completed the display resolution was set to 1600x1200, 85 Hz, 32 bpp. In this mode text is too small and blurry so I decided to lower the resolution to 1280x960 as I alwas did in Windows Vista. This also allows me to set refresh rate to 100 Hz. But the display resolution didn't chage - I confirmed this through the menu in monitor. Instead I got a smaller image with black space around it and it didn't make text any larger or sharper. 100 Hz is not available either. That is the size of desktop became 1280x960 but this image is rendered in 1600x1200 mode in the center of the screen.

How can I set real display resolution to 1280x960 and not just the size of desktop?

One day everything was fine, the next the option to change the resolution was greyed out and stuck at 656 x 496. The name of the monitor comes up as strange symbols. I reinstalled drivers, searched google, can't seem to find a fix for this problem. As you can imagine, it's impossibly awkward to use.

I've attached pictures of what I mean.

Windows 7 home premium 36bit

Let me know if you need more info.

I do not have the option to select my display's native resolution of 2560 x 1600. The highest and recommended resolution according to my OS is 1280 x 800. I am running Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit. The display adapter is currently a 256MB ATI Radeon X800 GTO2 (same as X850 XT PE) with one DVI and one HD15 VGA connector. I am running the display on the DVI connector with a dual-link cable. I also have a 1600 x 1200 display on the VGA connector.

ATI does not officially support Windows 7 - they say to "try" the Vista driver, which crashes at the beginning of the installer, so I am using the driver provided by Windows 7 which is recognized as X800.

The total resolution is 3760 x 1600. At 32-bit color, it should require less than 23 MB video memory (3760 x 1600 x 32 / 8bits/byte / 1024bytes/kb / 1024 kb/mb). Even with double buffering etc, 256MB should be enough outside of gaming, so I don't think that is the problem.

Perhaps my video card will not support the dual-link output. Anyone have any ideas?
