Have you got the correct drivers installed? Might be worth getting the latest video drivers from HP.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Possibly the computer video adapter can't supply 1600 x 900. Or maybe you don't have
enough video memory. Try temporarily lowering the number of colors displayed--
color depth--and see if it then allows you 1600 x 900.

How is it connected? Specs say using the VGA connector gives a slightly lower
quality picture:

(Hmm. Copy and paste I guess.)

You posted the monitor info but nothing about your computer. More than likely your graphics drivers are outdated.

I think riider was suggesting that your drivers might be out of date (too old - outdated). This is line with my suggestion at #4 about getting the latest ones from HP.

Even "faults" with the video driver software can often be put right by updating the drivers.

Note that the higher the resolution the smaller things will look - it just allows you to pack more onto the screen.

yeah,but the first thing is that i don't have the 1600x900 resolution, i have 1600x1200 and 1920x1440 and the ones lower, and the second thing is when i apply 1600x1200 or 1920x1440 things look very very big , but they must look small at higher resolutions like this .

What we are saying is that if you get the video driver updates from HP this might make the 1600x900 resolution then become available. The only way to find out is to try it.

Normally things should look small at higher resolutions.
