Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

I have a 22" al2216w and my resolution is supposed to be 1600 x 1200, when I turn on my computer it changes it down to1024 x 768 and it will not let me adjust it higher in the control panel-I have tried replacing the video card but it did not fix anything


Answers :

I have that same monitor, it will display that resolution with no problem, therefore it is the graphics driver and or the video card, when you purchase a card, it should have a guide that advises you of the resolution it supports.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 that doesn't seem to post. When I turn it on, the power light comes on, the battery light comes on, I hear the heat sink fan run, but I don't get the Dell splash screen. I tried a different video card. Nothing. I connected to an external monitor. Nothing. I have heard of a lot of problems with this model, but never about the video socket on the motherboard. Is there anything else I could try?

Moving the mouse does not help. (It's done it once as I type this). I looked around-- one post said to delete the Logitech camera I
