I have been using an Acer 22″ monitor for 11 months now and the native resolution 1680 x 1050 has worked fine. However since moving house and transporting everything, suddenly the monitor does not want to support this resolution.
The resolution options currently are: 1440*900, 1600*900, 1600*1200
The card is a Nvidia GeForce 9600GT and has been fine, its just I cant see how moving the monitor, with no obvious damage will have changed anything? Tried the monitor on multiple machines with different cards too, so its not the graphics card. Would a different VGA cable make any difference? Thanks in advance!
1680*1050 seems an odd res to me, but it strange that it’s changed after only moving it.
1680×1050 is native resolution for a regular 22″ display. 🙂
mossmotorsport, do you have a spare vga cable handy? I can’t see how a faulty one would affect resolution, but it’s certainly worth a try.
Also, does your monitor have any kind of built-in resolution control that might have been reset?
Definitely not ot some form of built in resolution control, but I am going to try a different VGA cable. Failing that its off to PC World to get a Dell 22″ 1080p monitor that with staff discount is Â£125, and its Â£175 on the Dell website!
Turns out it was a faulty VGA cable which is strange. Either way, got a new monitor cable and saved myself a few quid!
What a bizarre problem, I’d have expected a dodgy cable to either not work at all or give an intermittent signal, Glad it was an easy fix for you though.
