I have an HP DC7100 SFF (small form factor) pc. I want to purchase a new monitor for it. I would like to get the Samsung SyncMaster 206BW lcd for it, but I want to make absolutely certain that the onboard graphics card will be able to support this monitor.
I've looked here at the specs for the Samsung Monitor:
If I go into Display Properties, Settings, Advanced, it says that my Adapter is as follows:
Adapter Type: Intel 82915G/GV/9100GL Express Chipset Family
Chip Type: Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset
DAC Type: Internal
Memory Size: 128 MB
Adapter String: Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset
Bios Information: Intel Video BIOS
Also on the Adapter tab, there is a button that says "List All Modes".
When I click on this list, the highest resolution listed is 1280 x 1024
I'm not sure if this list is dependent on my current monitor that is installed, or if it truly is telling me what the graphics card can handle (I'm thinking it's showing me only what my current monitor can go up to). The montior I'd like to get has a native resolution of:
1680 x 1050
I'm having trouble finding this exact information on both the Intel site and also the HP site.
Can someone help me to determine for certain whether this monitor is compatible with this system??
