How to add extra resolutions for wide monitor


There is a lot of new monitors and 2-3 years old office PC's
Is there any easy way to add new wide screen resolutions to video card?
Or is it just a graphics controller limitation, which can't be over surpassed?

I have Samsung SM2494HM 24" Black business 1920x1080@60 Hz but on older computers it fails to display a full screen images and either there isn't availbale a 1920x1080.

The idea is that perhaps there is some known technique, how to avoid distortions and add an extra resolution to the supported list?

  1. I don't think you can add new resolutions that are bigger than the hardware can support, you will have to upgrade to a new card for that.

    You can with newer cards create custom resolutions, I'm not sure how but I am sure you cannot surpass the highest resolution that the card is capable of.
  2. Powerstrip will let you create custom resolutions for most graphics hardware.

    It's not free but is very powerful.

    The maximum desktop resolution supported by a graphics card is limited largely by the cards memory, as a result a card can usually reach a higher resolution at a lower color depth. I would expect most cards from the last 5 years to be able to produce a 1920x1080 image.
