New monitor not showing it's native resolution. Help?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Today I bought an LG W1943SE monitor, it's supposed to be running at 1366 x 768 as its native resolution. The problem is, that it's only running at 1360 x 768!

From the site I linked, it IS supposed to run at 1366 x 768 but Windows does NOT displays that resolution in screen resolution options.

The driver disk is just useless at best, at least I could use it as a Frisbee.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

This may be ab issue with the software. You should update the graphics card software and driver, then use THAT to change the resolution to the desired setting. Sometimes, to fit the image to the screen, you can run it at a non-standard resolution, like on the old HDTV's that ran 1080i, not 1080p. You can use tools like nVidia Control Panel to adjust the resize of the image and that may help. If not, yo may have to contact the manufacturer, LG.

Hope this helps!!!

EDIT: ATi Catalyst Control Center has similar tools.

Didn't work, it won't let me raise the resolution to anything beyond 1360 x 768 without causing problems.

Did you attempt a custom resolution while you had it?
