I connected my PC (see specs below) to my samsung LCD TV "LE32A656" with a VGA Cable. (my Graphic card: NVIDIA 6600GT). I set the resolution to 1920 to 1080. Everything works fine. no probs.
Than since the 6600 was already 2 years old and for some reason it went done. (it was already dying, and it gave it last breath) I had to take it out. And use some other graphic card.
Fortunately my Mother Board has an internal Intel Display Chipset Which can give good resolution
(Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express)
So I Took out the 6600, which activated the chipset. I Updated the internal display adapter with the latest drivers.
And again I used the VGA cable to connect the PC to the LCD TV.
But this time, when I try 1920 to 1080 resolution, it doesn't work.
But what is interesting is that when I set it to 1920 to 1200, it works quiet ok?!
I can't see why it won't display 1920 to 1080 resolution on the LCD while it can display 1920 to 1200 which is a higher resolution.
Than I tried to see if it displays 1920 to 1080 on the Pc Monitor: And yes it does.
So here is my question:
How is it that a chipset can display 1920 to 1200 resolution on a LCD, but not 1920 to 1080, even though we perfectly know that the 6600 GT was able to display 1920 to 1080, and 1920 to 1200 resolution on the same LCD?
