I have a LG 24en31 monitor and a Msi 7770 card. When i use it on 1600x900 its fine but when i turn it up to 1920x1080 is glitches out and the screen just chops up and its not the slightest bit useable.

Reinstall graphics drivers? Then try if that doesn't work then you should try to possibly reseat the graphics card. May be an issue with that....try it and let us now what happens.

Also, try the auto adjust feature on your monitor. That could be another solution.

This could also be a defective port on the card, or maybe a defective cable. How are you connecting the card to the monitor? If you use DVI try to switch to HDMI or vice-versa. Displayport could be a good option too. But I would avoid using VGA since the quality of the image will be lower.

the monitor doesnt have a display port, it uses VGA, but my card does not have a vga adapter so i use a vga to dvi-i to get it to work

Not surprised, you need a Dvi to Dvi cable to get the resolution you want.
If you use 15 pin to Dvi the result is an analog signal.

You need a Digital signal to get a resolution of 1080p on the monitor.

So this monitor doesn't have any other input than VGA? That's too bad.

If your card has a displayport or HDMI port you could also try to use a "displayport-to-VGA" adapter or a "HDMI-to-VGA" adapter instead. But since you're converting to VGA the image quality will always be less good than all the other choices. I don't know if you tried with a different VGA cable too?

That's not true. VGA max resolution is 2048 x 1536 which is above 1920 x 1080.

It's probably a bad cable or adapter.

So my monitor does have a Dvi-d slot. So should i get a dvi-d to a hdmi cord?

True but some monitors dont work with the resolutions you state for 15 pin d sub vga.
The higher resolutions are set up on the Hdmi or Dvi port depending on the video decoder in the monitor it`s self. So the right port has to be used to get the required resolution. It`s down to the monitor.

Dvi-d to dvi-d or Dvi-d to Hdmi and you will hit 1080p with no problems.

No, simply use a DVI cable (DVI-to-DVI).

I would avoid using adapters if you can because you increase your chances of running into problems.

OK I didn't know that. Thanks for the info. And that would most likely explain his problem.

As I said DO NOT look for an adapter. All you need is a simple DVI cable. That's the most common type of video cable for computers. Here's an example:

Yes a DVI-D cable will fit into a DVI-I port no problem there.

Just don't forget to switch your monitor input to DVI.

And also i dont know why the thing worked for 15 minutes or so then crapped out. I could use it on 1920x1080 for like 15-20 mins then it messed up

As I said adapters are less stable and VGA quality is obsolete. This is why they don't make VGA ports anymore on video cards.

I bet all will work better with a DVI cable.
