My 4670 can't reach the resolution 1368x768

hi, i have a 4670 1gb paired with samsung sa300 , problem is when i try to change the resolution to 1368x768 the screen will go blurry, i don't know if its a monitor or videocard problem, but i can play games using the resolution 1360x768, i monitored this issue for a week, well the result is everything is working normal using 1360x768 no system crash, no flickering of the monitor, but when i change it to 1368x768 the screen is flickering everytime i close a application which it didnt happened on 1367x768 resolution, help is greatly appreciated :D

here are the things i already done:

1. change the port where my monitor is connected - temp fix only it worked for a day then it went back to the blurry screen again
2. updated the drivers - same result
3. reset the bios to default configuration - same result
4. toggle the screen refresh rage from 60-75hz - same result

Spec:
Gigabyte G31m-esc2c
Powercolor 4670
4Gb of ram
550 Powersupply
Samsung Sa300 with a normal vga cable

More about 4670 reach resolution 1368x768
  1. bump!

    deleted the driver from the device manager and installed the driver from the samsung website - got same the result
  2. did check the vga port unplug clean and put it back again or go to ati new drivers and make default rate rfresh rate to 60 hz not 75hz
  3. @monu_08 cleaned the vga port plug, update the ati drivers to the latest ones, monitor is in 60hz, got the same result :(

    i'm gonna burrow my brother's 5770 this weekend to test if its vc problem ,i'll keep you posted with the progress, thanks :)
  4. the culprit is the videocard, the moment i slap the 5770 the resolution went back to 1368x768, looks like i need to buy for a new vc :)
  5. I am pretty sure you're supposed to set it at 1366x768, not 1368x768. Your native resolution is 1366x768 as well.
  6. if have a budget then go for 6850 nice gpu and run all games on 1368 x 768

    1360x768 vs 1368x768 does not have any noticeable difference in graphics quality. Why bother?
    But admittedly your 4670 is a weak card. If you want to improve the frame rates in games, then you need to upgrade. But if you just want to be able to set to 1368x768 instead of 1360x768, then it is a waste of money. Just set it at 1360x768 & you wont notice the 8 vertical pixel that will be added anyway.
  8. I repeat myself. Your native resolution is 1366x768. THIRTEEN SIXTY SIX, not thirteen sixty eight.
  9. @ Sunius my bad, :)

    @ Monu_08 yep 6850 is definitely in my list i'm just doing a little research if my psu can crank up that card, i got a HEC raptor 500 psu

    @ randomkid thank for that info :) i didn't know that part :)
  10. I have a 19 inch monitor and my native resolution is 1366 x 768.
    Pretty strange res you wer mentioning :heink:
    It could be the monitor that cant handle that resolution.
  11. So did you check whether your 4670 can do 1366x768 perfectly?
  12. As far as I know the SA 300 models come in sizes of 20 inch to 23 inch.
    Isnt 1366 x 768 a standard 19 inch resolution?
  13. @ sunius it can go 1366x768 but the resolutions is blurry, blurry - can't read the fonts, the icons look crap at their are lines running from top to buttom of the screen
  14. Rightclick on your desktop.
    Click on screenresolution, click on screenresolution grayed out.
    What does it say at recommended resolution?
    And what resolutions can you pick in the sliderbar?
  15. frontwing has a point, what's the exact model of your monitor?
  16. The native resolution of a 20 inch is 1600 x 1200.
    SA300 series start off from 20 inch.
  17. @ Frontwing recommended resolution 1366x768

    @ Sinius Samsung SyncMaster SA300 Model: S19A300B
  18. What cable are you using? Did you try DVI cable?
  19. @ sunius analog cable, don't have a dvi cable available to try it

    Question: will my system benefit with the 6850 upgrade ? 6770? :D
  20. It will benefit a lot. Those cards are much more powerful.
  21. @ Sunius glad to hear that :D and i though that my e5300 will hold ( bottleneck ) the performance of those cards :D
  22. Maybe lightly, but you will still see an amazing increase in performance.
  23. bettter go for 6850 for budget your raptor 500 psu handle like a charm it requires only
    one pci 6 power connector
