I bought a ViewSonic VG2427 today at a flea market and was told that it wasn't displaying HD. At the time, I thought that that was managable because my other monitors weren't HD. It was super cheap and pretty big, so I bought it. When I came home and replaced my center monitor (out of a 3 monitor setup) on my mac pro with it, I was disappointed to find out that "not displaying HD" meant that the highest resolution that it would display was 1360 x 768, which looks absolutely terrible on this screen who's native resolution is 1920 x 768.
This was the only resolution that it would display, depsite there being three other options available. I scoured the internet to the best of my ability, but I can't find much information on this monitor. I also called ViewSonic tech support and they were of absolutely no help. I made sure that the refresh rate was set to 60 Hz, as stated in the instructions and I tried both VGA and DVI connections. Nothing fixed it, and I'd really like to get this working.
Has anybody else seen or had this problem before? I couldn't find anything about the monitor, much less anybody else with the same problem.
Here's a screenshot of the monitor settings pannel in system preferences.
P.S. This is my first time posting something here, is there a way of posting pictures, rather than giving a link? Thanks
