what is maximum resolution of my graphic card ?

HI,

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

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.

Hi,

Can you advise what monitor you're using?

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

Regards,


RobMobility.

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: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1156/P7H55M_PRO/#download
