Native resolution not available

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi

Just finished a new build for my little lad today and coming across a problem that have never seen before and am baffled as to the cause. So Asrock extreme 3 970 rev 2.0, Amd fx8120. gigabyte hd7870 and a fresh install of windows 8 on a brand new hdd with 8gb of gskill ram. Build and install went well, installed the available drivers form the vendor site but notice no chipset driver, installed the latest catalyst beta as normal and the audio/lan drivers. In the windows resolution manager 1920 x 1080 is not available to select, he is on a 1080p screen which was fine on his other pc. The top resolution available is 1600 x 1200 which is not for his screen so have had to select 1400 x 900 just atm.

I have un-installed the gpu driver and re-installed etc. The screen is connected by vga using a dvi adapter. The gpu came out of my system this morning and should also be fine.

Completely baffled.

Thanks in advance

have you checked your BIOS/EUFI for the proper video settings?

did your MoBo come with a driver disc? if it did see if it has a chipset driver.

It is a 1080p Lg screen. Not checked any display settings in bios will do that now thanks. I downloaded and installed all available drivers form the Asrock site direct.

Any luck yet?
I dont have an AMD GPU in my rig right now, its in my sons and hes playing BL2 but i know with Nvidia you can force custom resolutions as i downscale to 3600x2025 for games that i have enough GPU power.

Try and see if you can force a custom resolution, if it wont work your monitor should just revert back after a few seconds or press escape, i cant tell you how to try a custom res with AMD but im sure somebody on here can help you with that bit. Good luck.
