I use a Samsung 28” HDTV as my computer display.  Its native resolution is

1366 X 768 at 60Hz.

 

 My desktop computer’s AMD HD7750 graphic card will provide up to 1920X1080 resolution.

 

If I raise the Samsung’s resolution from its native level upwards, will this damage the Samsung HDTV?

Hi

Welcome to BC Forums.

 

Nope.it can't damage the monitor.

For providing high resolution you have Graphic Card which provide more quality.so your computer will be using your graphic card.

I appreciate your response.
 
The HD7750 graphics card shows the top resolution to be 1920 X 1080.
 
Windows 10 indicated I could adjust upwards from the native 15 X 768 to 1920 X 1080.
 
I tried to do so.. However, the highest resolution I could achieve is 1600 X900.
 
I authenticated that is was the resolution that I did get using Speecy.   The text on the screen after booting the computer showed that same 1600 X 900 resolution..
 
Thank you again for setting me straight.

if monitor support Max resolution 1600x900 then it also doesn't work even your graphic card support up-to 1920x1080.

 

Conclusion is both devices should support the resolution you need.

How is your computer connected to the HDTV? Via an HDMI cable or via a VGA cable?
