Hey guys,

I just bought a Viewsonic VX2753mh monitor. The monitor allows up to 1920x1080 resolution, and a friend of mine who also has the monitor has been able to set it to that resolution, but I'm having trouble going above 1680x1050 which is shown as the highest option available.

I've gone through my monitor's settings, the problem appears to be in my graphics card settings.

Any advice?

What's the video card?  What are its max resolution specs?

I doubt it is the card - outputting 1080p shouldn't be a challenge for old cards let alone current ones. It may be that your monitors native resolution isn't being detected.

I would suggest the first thing is head over to the Viewsonic product page and get the correct driver.

Windows 7 32bit
Windows 7 64bit


Next thing I'd do is get the latest drivers for your video card, and then uninstall the current software/drivers, reboot and then install the new drivers.

It's a 6950.

I've updated all drivers as well.

use the snip tool and post a screenshot of your screen res, and perhaps your ATI panel as well.

Are you connected with HDMI?

There is a HDMI bypass in the Catalyst Control Center as well - perhaps the HDMI negotiation isn't doing it right and you need to force it.

Ok I finally figured it out with the right combination of settings. I had to set the mode as an HDTV on my graphics software, then change a setting in the monitor itself. Now everything looks amazing smile smile
