    If you have and LCD monitor, all LCD screens can actually display only a single given resolution referred to as the native resolution. In this case your video card must match the native resolution (1440x900). Find out if the manufacturer of your video board in your computer has an updated driver to support 1440x900. If not you will need to buy a new video card.

    If its a CRT monitor (1440x900) is maximum resolution. Do not exceed 1440 across or 900 vertical. You can set it to anything equal or less than these values. You can also check with the manufacturer of your video card for newer drivers.

    just for grins, go to the display control panel,

    select Advanced button

    then click the adapter tab - there should be a setting for "display all modes" make sure it's listed and see if you're monitors native resolution is available.

    What you might have to do is install the drivers from the CD that came with monitor.

    Nope, 1280x1024 is a 4:3 decision which isn't extensive reveal, in case you probably did then it would warp lines, no longer in trouble-free terms stretch yet probable cut back to rubble your reveal besides ( liquid crystal reveal's are very soft in case you're employing one. ) in case you're speaking approximately resolutions in video games, they are risk-free to alter to what you p.c.. basically no longer laptop reses.
