Hi,

Got a LG Flatron L194WS 19in monitor - trying to change the screen resolution to the native 1440 x 900 but that size is not availiable on the resolution options. I am running vista and have a NVidia Geforce 8400GS graphics card and have just installed the latest drivers.


The monitor also dispalys that the optimum resolution is 1440 x 900 - but options do not allow it. All others dont fit screen and i have 1600 x 1200 butthat is 'out of range'.

I woould expext teh grahpics card (included in a packaged from pc world with the monitor) to support this resolution so have i missed somethiing out here?

cheers

Are you trying to alter the settings through the Vista control panel or the nvidia control panel? I think the option should be there if you use the nVidia panel.

ta for reply.

I have tried in both Vista and teh Nvidia control panel - they both dont have this option.

didn't think of that.

have gone on LG website and downloade dthe driver set - only to find that there is no driver for the L194Ws but they have a L194WT driver ! Fire a note to LG for teh correct driver or confirmation that this WT is ok.

Interesting

I have a laptop with Vista & nVidia 8400 graphics and a 17" widescreen. It displays at 1440 x 900 no probs.

Can you get screen options to display all modes and see if it works at a different refresh rate
