I'm using a laptop, HP dv6 6027tx and I have connected it to a monitor. I went to change the resolution and it allowed 1920x1440 as its max resolution. But, once I selected it the monitor told me that it was out of range. The best resolution I can go up to is 1366x768, but then this resolution and 1360x768 seems squashed on the monitor. So therefore, I have to use 1280x1024 at the moment. I was just wondering why it gives the option of selecting up to 1920x1440 but only allows me up to 1366x768? Is there a way that i can improve my resolution.
The refresh rate is the speed at which the monitor can display new images given it by the computer, measured in Hertz, or times per second. In almost all consumer monitors this is 60Hz, or 60 times per second. We can find the refresh rate with some Googling if you give us the model of the monitor, or you can find it yourself.
