i don't have optimal screen resolution 1920 x

July 15, 2011 at 02:48:22
Specs: Windows XP
i have just got a 24" monitor it is saying to me the best screen resolution is 1920 x 1080, i don't have this option on my computer, also is this why the picture is 'stretched' i use a drawing package (autocad) a lot & the circles are now look like elipses, if i get the res to the one stated will this sort out the problem or do i need to do something else, as you've probably guessed i'm not that computer literate. i have updated the driver.

List your computer specs. Make and model#. Do you have on board graphics or an add on card ?

Hi, i had it custom built a few years ago,i'll get out & try to find the relevant info, on board graphics? sorry i don't understand this, unless this is for games, all i can remember when i got it built (my mate gave me the specs) i told them i don't play games on it. sorry i know this sounds stupid but all i do is start it up do whatever i've got to do then stop it. i know nothing about the inside,i'll try to find the relevant info (we've just moved) & post it, thanks for your help.

If it turns out that you have onboard graphics and you stated that you have the latest drivers than the graphics adapter was never met to support that resolution. All you can do is purchase a graphics card that can support that resolution. First you will have to let us know what motherboard you have. Current generation graphic cards are pci express interface. Previous generation was the agp interface. Once we know what motherboard you have than we can advise what graphic card will work with your motherboard.

Edit: Latest version AutoCAD 2012 requires at least 1,024 x 768 display resolution. One possibility software has been configured to work currently 4:3. The change of monitor now widescreen 16:9. Maybe some setting needs to be changed in the software so it will play nice with the new monitor.

Please let us know if our advice was able to help you.
