    Monitor Supported Resolutions


    I am looking at getting a new external monitor (probably 2k) which I will use with several computers. One of these computers is an old Lenovo Thinkpad W510 which has a 1366x768 display using a NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M video card. Supposedly that card can support up to a 2k display, but I have not been able to get anything higher than its default resolution on my current monitor (which has a max of 1920x1200) using a Displayport connection . I don't really care if I cannot get a higher resolution than the default for that old computer, but I want a monitor that will at least support its default. Currently I was looking at two possible monitors: Viewsonic VP2768 or HP Z27n. Both are very similar but the HP monitor has a preset for 1366x768 while the Viewsonic does not.

    Does this mean that the Viewsonic would not support the Thinkpad default resolution or is there a reliable custom resolution that could be set up?

    Thanks,
    JohnD

  2. Screen Resolution to 1280 x1024

    I would recommend looking at the specifications for your monitor and keyboard to see what resolutions they support.

    It's possible that your monitor does not support the 1280 x 1024 resolution.

  3. Monitor problems

    The max resolution your monitor supports is 1440x900. Newer graphics cards and VGA cables are capable of supporting true hd. I think your graphics card is set to a higher resolution than your monitor supports.

  4. Monitor Supported Resolutions

    Monitors should be able to scale down to a resolution, but not up to a resolution.

    If you like the HP model, they make some good monitors.

    Thanks,
    I currently have two HP monitors and they have been pretty good so I think I will stick with them.
