I bought a 2nd hand flatscreen monitor a couple of months ago and realized yesterday that it has to be not synched up right. The computer opened a dialogue box yesterday saying it needed a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 which this is surely capable of.
What prompted this dialogue box was my trying to install the program for a new camera I’d been bought.
Looking at the display options I have I can’t move the slider above 600 x 800, attempting to move the display slider has no result, it just sticks there and won’t budge.
I have a graphics card which according to my display/system readout is a Cirrus Logic 5430/5440 Compatible graphics adapter which I think I must have bought while I was still running a CRT type monitor.
I’m on an HP tower computer which I think is a 1600.
Also while looking at the display configuration as well as the device manager I discovered that the computer only recognises the monitor as a ‘default monitor’ with no further detail. I’m assuming that if I could overcome that I could get it to recognise that the monitor has greater capacity for resolution. I can’t currently see the model number beyond it being a Dell.
Is there a simple way to improve the resolution recognition. Or am I looking at buying a new graphics card or what?
