Monitor and high resolutions (1024x768)
Posted on 2002-07-07
I have an old 14" monitor. The type is 7133D (it has no brand but I found out that Acer had this type of 14" monitors).
The problem is I bought a game and it requires a resolution of 1024x768. I have a Diamond Stealth II S220 and it is more than capable of delivering high res (1024x768). However, when I start my game the screen goes blurry. I tried to set the resolution of the monitor myself to 1024x768 and this gives the same effect. An unpleasant screen with lines all over the place.
So it seems I am stuck at 800x600, but my graphics card can handle more and alos the monotor because it can handle 1024x768 as well!
I checked the Acer site and I could only find drivers for 7133S type, not the 7133D type.
Now I also know that in the past, with another graphics card (an even older card than the S220), I got my monitor to display 1024x768, so I am puzzled why I cannot set my monitor again to 1024? Could this be with some frequency discrepancy between the card and the monitor?
