hi guys,

 

I recently purchased a Dell IN1930 LED monitor and attached it with my pc which is 8 years old with intel 845gvsr board, 1.50gb ram, 2.4 ghz processor. The monitor works fine but it doesn't show the exact resolution which is 1366x768 (it is showing 1280x768 now). I can't set the exact resolution. Even I updated the drivers provided with the cd. Should I need a graphics card or something graphics adaptor (I don't know what to do). Earlier I was using 15inch samsung monitor(1152x864). How to set the exact resolution. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thnx...

According to Intel's specifications:

1366x768 isn't supported (Pg 26). 1280x768 is as close as the list shows.

 

As the board only has PCI expansion slots, if you wanted to use a video card which can display this resolution, you would need to find a suitable PCI card (not to be confused with the later PCIe specification). However there is a problem that prevents this board from using a PCI video card as the Primary Adapter if the BIOS version is not at least revision VA84510A.86A.0023.P08

All in all, it might not be worth the trouble?

G'day, PCI graphics card are hard to come by nowadays, luckily there is a few still around like the Jaton Radeon HD 5450 PCI can support up to a resolution of 2560 x 1600 but it comes at a pretty high price tag unfortunately.
