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.
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.
have to agree that it appears more like something else than a monitor problem.
I have used the same Medion monitor for a number of years,without problems using a variety of operating systems, including earlier versions of Microsoft O/S plus later versions of XP Home and Pro, Vista, W7.
As others have said a monitor is OS independent so should work with Linux, Windows etc at the native resolution but only if the drivers for your video hardware supports this.
Dropped frames seem like more of a computer problem rather than the monitor. What is the resolution of the videos you are trying to play and in what format? My laptop has a native display of 1376x768. Video and everything plays fine until I connect it to my TV which is 1080p. It struggles to upscale to that resolution and that is a Core 2 Duo with onboard Via graphics.
Mines a core 2 from 8 years ago.
Onboard card says it supports 1080 but both new and old monitors have been blinking off and on so I'm inclinded to think, as mentioned before, it is a hardware failure. The HDMI is probably going kaput but the DVI is hanging in there. I put everything else to the test (memcheck, etc.). It could still be the power supply but it's probably the online video card since it's acting up anyway. I just hope I can squeeze another 18 months or so out of this old box.
Thanks for the replies.
