My desktop card will display 1080p but I'm having trouble finding a monitor that works with XP. This is something I've never heard of until I bought a monitor that, as it turns out, was only Vista compatible. Any clues where I can find a cheapo for XP?
The best I can tell you is that I have never, ever heard of any monitor working with only a specific operating system. That sounds very strange. Was the source of your information a reliable one? In theory, any monitor should work with XP.
I've never heard of a monitor being OS dependent, either.
I've just bought a Asus VS228H 1080p monitor and the first thing I noticed was it drastically degrades my website's online video. I've gone thru all settings including Bios & display, setting the default at 1920x1080. I've tried lower resolutions to no avail. I go to Asus website and saw some updates but they're just for unrelated multi-screen displays. It must be some sort of virtual memory problem.
I don't think that it is directly related to OS but is related to the graphics and the drivers that are available. Your problem may be with the onboard graphics. Is it up to it and do you have the latest drivers for the graphics?
Yes...I've a few slots left. I saw an AGP slot in there, too.
I built this thing for video editing 8 years ago. I don't want to spend much on fixing it because my large video files play fine locally. My video editor plays fine, too. It's just an online case it appears.
