Posted on 2011-10-25
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I am using the video which is built into my mobo... ( asus P7h55-M-pro ).  the screen resolution is set at 1280 X 1024. i need to go higher. i am getting notation saying that if my resolution is less then  1600 X 1200 some screens might not fit.
i know sometimes the graphic menus only display that which the monitor will support as a choice for resolution.
firslty where is the box to uncheck which limits my choice of resolution
secondly, how can i tell what my maximum resolution my MOBO is "spec ed" at. perhaps i am not at my most current driver.
i am using Windows 7 ultimate

    Supports DVI with max. resolution 1920x 1200 @ 60Hz
    Supports RGB with max. resolution 2048x 1536 @ 75 Hz
    Maximum shared memory of 1748 MB

    That is not saying you can't go higher - it's warning you that a lower resolution may prevent display of high resolution windows.  You should be able to right click on the desktop, choose properties and change your settings.

    your post was n point... and according to the above, i shoul dbe able to get 1920  X 1200 , but the intel options for the graphic card limit me to 1280 X  1024... don't you read it the same way  ?

    Can you advise what monitor you're using?

    Has this been set correctly - i.e. have you downloaded the driver for it?

    The monitor drivers should not affect the maximum resolution available, but the onboard video drivers should - select your OS, choose the Intel VGA driver and install it:
