 Post subject: Resolution problem....  Topic is solved
New postPosted: Fri Jan 06, 2012 1:01 pm 

first of all here are the PC specs:

- MB: Asus M2N-X PLUS
- CPU: AMD Athlon X2 5000+ @ 2600 MHz
- Monitor: Asus VW195D
- GPU: Gigabyte nVidia 8500 GT 256MB
- OS: Windows XP SP 3 (32 bit)
The problem is as following,
the current screen resolution is 1360x768 but the native monitor resolution is 1440x900
it wouldn't be a problem at all if the letters and pictures weren't blurry
the nVidia software gives me the option to create a custom resolution and i did so because the native monitor resolution isn't there
when I apply the custom/native resolution all i get is part of the desktop, as i move the mouse the screen slides to the end, bottom/top or right/left
the monitor is currently connected to the DVI out, if i connect the monitor to the VGA out the problem is still there

Any suggestions are welcome.

TIA !

For this post the author Makcalable has received gratitude : bassfisher6522

Make sure you have the correct and very latest stable driver installed.

For that it is the v285.58

See here for the latest driver for your video card - http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk


If you have the latest installed I would uninstall it from the device manager and then run this tool here to completely remove it and then download and install the driver from Nvidia.

It may just be a glitch with the driver. Let us know how you get on.

If you get this far and it still doesn't work, please plug your monitor into another PC to ensure the monitor is not at fault in any way.

it's been over a month now, sorry !

the problem has been solved, the solution is an upgrade of the GPU
now it's another one i don't know the model but it's an ATI one, but that's irrelevant

thanks for the help guys !
