ACER with Dell 24" monitor

\015 I just got replace dell 24" monitor. my old dell monitor was working in hi res 1900x1240 but when i got the new monitor it only go up to 1600x1200.the dell tech said must be the Acer graphic card. the only that comes with the Acer is SiS Mirage 3 graphics.is there a fix to this problem? 1600x1200 looks terrible on the 24" monitor.\015

Answers :

If it is a Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP it can display a max of 1920x1200.

Mirage 3 is integrated graphics I believe and integrated graphics have no business running such HD resolutions such as 1920x1200. It will choke or refuse to do that resolution generally.

Other 24" Monitors can do a max of (1920x1080) which is basically 1080 HD resolution. You need to find which monitor you have, what its max resolution is, and then find what the max resolution is that your SiS Mirage 3 can output.

I was tring to Connect Two Computers to One Monitor, but i didnt get it, does someone know how to do so? I bought a KVM switch, USB to use between a new Acer running Win XP and old Dell with Win 98.
