Hdmi to dvi

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I bought a HDMI to Dvi cable today but from my pc to HD lcd but when I play my games the res only goes up to 1280 x 720 on all my games. Why is that? Why won't it run on 1980 x1080 as the hd lcd res?

Are you sure that your LCD is 1080? Looks like to me it is 720.

My lcd is 720p. But it should go higher right?
post #6 of 10
yes it should go higher and ur on vista... so yes it should. um do this

go to vista control panel and go to change res. and tell me what resolutions you get.

if it goes to 1920x 1080 put that and then go to REsize HDTV DESKTOP and size it on how it should look. if doesnt go 1920x1080 then no ur monitor cant do it. did your viewsonic say 1080? when you got it?

No if your TV is 720P then you can't go 1080. Unless I'm not understanding you right.
