So I purchased a new computer and have now installed all the drivers and updates, downloaded the evga precision, etc. My display max is still at 1024x768.. Why? I use to run this same monitor at 1920x1024 on my old computer which was a core 2.. How come on my new i7 I can only run it at 1024x768?
according to the link you provided, your monitor supports a maximum resolution of 1280x1024. If that link is correct there is no way that you could run such a high resolution. It is not a matter of the new PC (or drivers or anything). You probably dont remember correctly
lol, most likely nothing is wrong with your video card. your old computer must have a mixed up driver. i've seen that before when i was fixing my uncle computer athlon xp, ddr ram, geforce mx440. basically 5 years old pc. i gave him my 19" samsung which i know for a fact that max rest is 1440x900, but he said he could push it to 1980x1200. i go check it out and reinstall driver. BUYA! max out at 900p.
I donno any other answer except your old pc was using an incorrect driver.
