Bestbuy is having a sale that I believe starts tonite.
This 19" widescreen lcd is on sale:

I want to get this LCD as an upgrade for my 11-year old 15" compaq crt that is still chugging along. The thing is, I dont know if my pc can run the odd native resolution of 1440x900.

I installed the latest graphics drivers for my chipset.

Dell Dimension 2400
Intel P4 2.2ghz
768mb ram
Intel 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Chipset. Intel refers to it as 82845G. The driver version is the latest one: Version Date 6/21/2005

I checked around for supported resolutions both online and in the software, but found no reference.

So, to sum it up, I want to know if my Intel 82845G graphics chipset can run a resolution of 1440x900 through VGA.

Yes you can, your integrated graphics can probably support over 1440x990 resolution, but you wont be able to play any games at that resolution. but for everyday use you will be just fine with integrated graphics at that resolution.

I know that before I updated the drivers I saw a list of supported resolutions. 1600x900 and 1920x1200 were on that list but not 1440x900.

I know that the card can support resolutions higher, but I want to know if it can support that specific resolution.

The graphics will sinc up with the monitor and you should have no problem with that resolution. They are not going to produce a monitor that a GPU can not support. Especially a standard size like a 19" monitor.

yea, but its a 19" widescreen and that resolution is relatively new. And the graphics chipset is quite old. Old and new dont really go together so well.

the 945 graphics supports what ever is in the monitors edid
so if the monitor says it supports 14x9 then the graphics will show it on the list

yeah, but the current monitor doesnt support 1440x900 so I cant try it now.

ya you just need to get the new monitor
make sure you have 2 GB of memory and that graphics supports up to 19x12
the 965 supports up to 20x15

wtf are you talking about? have you read the first freakin post?

i have a dell dimension 2400 with 768megs of system ram.

The integrated gpu is some old intel chipset called 82845G. read before n00bing...

it was just a typo
take it easy
my monitor is 19x12 i assumed it would be the max for 845
but it goes up to 20x15 also
here are some of the specs
apparently a FP and CRT have different specs
but either way the 14x9 mode is supported

Video and Display DirectShow*/DirectVA*
Hardware motion compensation support for DVD playback
4x2 overlay filter
350 MHz DAC frequency
Maximum DVO pixel rate of up to 330MP/s
Flat panel monitors and TV-out support via AGP Digital Display (ADD) cards
350 MHz DAC for 1800x1440 @ 85Hz max CRT resolution or 2048x1536@60Hz max FP resolution
Synchronous display for dual monitor capabilities
350MHz RAMDAC for up to QXGA analog monitor support
Dual DVO ports for up to QXGA digital display support
Multiple display types (LVDS, DVI, TV-out, CRT)

do you have the same graphics chipset as me?????

if not, how does this help me?
May 27, 2007 4:31:27 AM

yes i do have the G845
i also have a G965

is that G845 the same as my 82845G? seems a bit different?

what cpu and type of ram are you running? give me the specs of that machine
May 27, 2007 4:42:34 AM

its an D845GVFN intel made board
2.40 GHz
533 MHz FSB
2GB DDR333 memory

sounds pretty similar.

So can your GPU run at 1440x900?
May 27, 2007 4:56:32 AM

my monitor doesnt support that mode
so its not on the modes list
the last time i had a 1920x1280 monitor plugged into it, it showed that mode as the max
i was also allowed to select 1450x1080 because the monitor said it did that mode in the edid.
but i ran it at 1024x768
i was running it at a low resolution so i could see what the kids were up to accross the room
right now i have a monitor on it with no edid and i can select 1600x1200

with my old ati radeon x800gt in my personal pc, i could unlock the resolution thingy and run my monitor at any resolution supported by the gpu including 2048x1536. Do you think that this chipset can support that res??
May 27, 2007 5:15:43 AM

ya they say they support that in the documentation
i dont have a monitor that big to try it on though
i suppose i could uncheck the hide modes box and try it
and if the monitor freaks out ill hit escape and hope it goes back
give me a bit to go mess with it

i fhe documentation says so....

have fun, knock yourself out
May 27, 2007 11:17:19 AM

i found a monitor inf with support for 14x10 and that mode shows up
i couldnt find one for 14x9 so i cant verify this for you
