Thread: Max resolution on my notebook's monitor out

    Default Max resolution on my notebook's monitor out

    Hey guys,

    i'm really considering getting a new monitor for my extended desktop display on my IBM T43 notebook. its running a intel 915GM onboard graphics card.

    im pairing it with a 17inch philips crt for the time being. 1024x768 on my note book and 1280X1024 on my crt.

    looking at the newer lcds. they go up to 1680p and i dont know if my graphics card is up to the mark for this. and it would prove rather pointless to get a new LCD and run it below native resolution.

    ive been searching all morning and i cant seem to find specs regarding the max res on my notebook's monitor out. can anyone shed some light?

    thanks!

    Have you tried right-clicking on your desktop and going to Properties.
    Under the Setting tab, there should be a drag-bar for the screen resolution. I think if you drag the counter all the way to the right, that should be the max resolution your graphic card can support.

    EDIT: Okay, I might be wrong about the above assumption. Can try checking the Intel website for specs.

    hi,

    i thought of that too then i realised that the max resolution varies with the monitor that i connect. thats why ive come to worry about it.
