Geforce FX 5200, max resolution 1024?

  1. Hi,

    I bought a Dell 4600 about 18 months ago, which came with GeForce FX 5200... somehow the max resolution has always been 1024*768. I thought it was because of a cheap graphics card until I read the product reviews from various sites.

    I just downloaded the latest driver (71.89) from nvidia website, installed it, however the max resolution is still 1024*768, this can't be true for a 128M graphics card! Is there anything I should do to increase the max resolution limit up to 2048*1536 or is it the limitation of my monitor!?

    System configuration:
    windows xp 2002 sp2
    ndivia driver 71.89
    NEC LCD1512 ( the manual says it supports up to 1024*768)

    If this is due to the LCD setting, then it is another reason for me to dump it, but please let me know, thanks in advance!

    It is a limitation of your monitor.

    Yup Mailpup is right it is a limitaion of the Moniter that u have what u can do is go for a 19" CRT if u want such resolution or maybe even 21", ii dont know abt US but 17"/19" LCD are verrrrrrrry costly in india.

    Thanks

    Thanks guys... I have just brought samsung 930B home and I am able to adjust the resolution to 1280*1024, the image is soooo much better!
    although my wallet hurts... these 19 inch digital LCDs are not cheap in Canada either ( mine is around 400US, without rebate), but what the heck. :)
