    Question Help: Cannot get the max resolution for new monitor

    Hi Guys,

    Just bought viewsonic vx2025wm. My current graphic card is fx5200 nvidia.
    Why the max resolution is only 1280x1024 and not the maximum of the monitor resolution (1680x1050)?

    I have tried to install the latest driver from nvidia (91.31_winxp2kmce_english_whql.exe).
    Also I have installed the monitor driver (CD that comes with the monitor).
    I am using DVI cable from graphic card to the monitor.

    Now I have no idea... can anybody help?

    Thank you.

    Buying a DSLR/SLR doesn't make you a photographer. It makes you a DSLR/SLR owner
