1920X1080 Problem. Please Help

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Ok I have been having this problem since over a year now and any help will be greatly appreciated. I have been using Intel HD 3000 Graphics built-in in my 2500k. I have a 23" LG full HD monitor. Heres a link for the monitor: http://www.lg.com/in/computer-products/lcd-monitor/LG-M237WAP.jsp
So last year when i bought this monitor and computer and i put it on full resolution which is also written as recommended on the resolution page the whole display becomes smaller and unclear. And really bad. So it had been working perfect on 1680X1050 and the guy who sold the computer told me i will need a graphic card. So after a year i bought an Radeon HD 6870 which without any doubt can support 1920X1080 resolution and the same problem is happening and i can still only use it on 1680X1050 and there has been no visible improvements from the graphic card. I have been using an HDMI wire since a year. I googled a bit and some people having the problem of EDID seemed to be having a same issue but im really not sure if its the same thing and couldnt find a solution either. Can someone please help me out.

Use DVI instead of HDMI and check your scaling options in your driver control panel. If that doesn't solve the problem, maybe the monitor is borked somehow.

Go into the CCC control panel for your video card (6870) and look for 'Display Scaling' and then adjust it until it's right. thumb.gif

When i put the wire it says its VGA. And the slot on the moniter says RGB in. And the only other input i have is HDMI. Does that mean i do not have DVI?

Looking at the specs you have HDMI and D-Sub only, no DVI. HDMI is mostly the same as DVI.

So here's what else I would try. Since your monitor is a combo style - meaning it was built to do TV or PC monitor, I would check the on-screen options of the LCD and be sure that when you have the HDMI in that you set up the screen to 'PC' instead of 'Movie/Video'. Look for a setting like that. Will probably fix your problem. I'll try to get a snapshot of the setting on my LCD TV for you. smile.gif

( edit )

Here, this is what I mean:

Ok i use the monitor only as a pc so the hdmi cable is always plugged in. Secondly related to display the only options i can change are aspect ratio (4:3 and 16:9) and Picture Mode (vivid, standard, cinema)... Thats it frown.gif And none of these help
