it is not an lcd it is a crt the games i play all support 2048x1536 res.
i know because i can play them on that res. on win xp pro x64 edition...
the desktop res. on my win7 rig can go up to 2048x1536 but ANY not some or a few but ANY game will run at a max of 1600x1200 i can not get ANY game to run higher than 1600x1200 which does not make sense because my desktop res can go up to
it can reach 2048x1536 with win xp pro x64 and x32. with no tweaking.
(tweaking as in display properties and unhiding all view modes)
so it can hit 2048x1536 native i think
its listed that the max res is 1600x1200 but it always shows me the option to go to 2048x1536.
what you said about the generic driver in win7 makes sense but how can i go about fixing the problem because win 7 shows the option for the highest res in the display properties and i can select it.
but i can not select it in any game.
check with any company, 19" crt monitors of good quality have a max native resolution of 1600x1200, that is why you are limited in win7, XP has an option to change resolution to the max your video card support. This is not true resolution and therefore is not native, limit is 1600x1200, and I believe this is what you need = http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=OP901
Thanks for the help everyone.
i guess i am stuck @ 1600x1200 till i downgrade to a lcd monitor...
at least i will have a higher res. but i will sure as hell miss my color and clarity. lcd's just cant compete with a good ol CRT.
i might go back to XP but then i miss out on DX11 so i guess ill choose the lesser of two evils.
I said the same thing, that My 21" CRT @ 1600x1200 was way better then any LCD, then I got lucky and a year ago got a 24" Widescreen LCD for less then $200, this sucker has 1920x1200 native resolution. I said well let's see what this looks like, well let's just say I gave my brother the 21" CRT and I changed all CRT's to LCD's after that. I am impressed with the clarity and the games, OMG, run like amazing maxed out..... drool,,,, LOL
