I bought a 19" viewsonic LCD monitor which has a native resolution of 1440x900. This resolution is not supported by my onboard graphics driver (via/s3g unichrome) even after updating the drivers. Is there any workaround or hack. Would a BIOS update help?

Doesnt matter, as TFTs will support lower resolution fine...

one can run under what ever resolution supported by the on board grfx !!! :)

all they are Upto 1440x900 non of them are native 1440 :| even see there is no such word as Native Resolution... :lol: tell me What is ur native resolution...

We count the Highest Supported and lowest Supproted by the hardware... any thing between is its supported resoolution...

i'm not in sync wid the TFTs of today, but during the dayz when TFTs were mostly concerned wid lappies there was a native resolution for TFTs, it does even today as far as lappies are concerned. any resolution below the native and the image is fully fuzzied. any res. more than that and the desktop is drawn out of bounds, means you need to scroll down,up, right left. you can't see the whole desktop on the screen. i dunno abt today's tft monitors. plz enlighten me if they support a wide range of resolutions as far as desktop tft monitors are concerned.

Every TFT I have seen in my life had a native resolution, and not running it at that resolution gives u a serious loss in text etc viewing quality, it does not matter for movies/games though.

Also, I have never seen a TFT with native resolution lower than the maximum supported resolution, the TFT's do support resolutions lower than the native resolution but they are not meant to be set at that resolution 24/7, the quality is just awful. All the Viewsonic monitors in question have a native resolution of 1440x900, if u own one of them, and u are not running it at 1440x900, a message will pop up saying "For best picture quality please set resolution to 1440x900".

why 5200 when everyone is going toward g80. I doubt if it available right now.You should have suggested atleast 7300 gs/gt.

well dat is bcos d thread starter's chipset is 2005 vintage and not likely to have a PCI-e slot

as of now d only AGP card dat is available easily is d 5200 (@ least in my city) :)
so d suggestion seems oky-toky

shud get 1 5200 for 2.2K (256 MB variant Jetway), (just got 1 4 a friend ;))

2.2k for that? man! thats really costly.. but oh! i forgot antiques are always costly!!! :D :D

i'd suggest you to somehow find either gforce 6200 or 6600 agp version if you can get it.

BIOS support needed 4 wide-screen rendering
ur current BIOS seems not 2 support this

i suggest dat u flash ur BIOS with d latest version and also update ur IGP drivers to d latest available
once u do it hopefully u shud b able to get option of wide-screen resolotuion of 1440x900

afaik, bios updates wid vga bios updates are rarely released. only if there's a major issue. s3g is an old igp now.. very old i must say. i haf it on one of the computers here. i don't think it'll support any widescreen resolution.

yup u r absolutely spot-on wen u say vga BIOs updates released only when d HW faces major issues

but dont u think not being able 2 isplay wide-screen resolution is a major issue in this time and day ;)

exactly it is.. and no wonder you should upgrade! s3g is baba aadam ke zamane ka igp now! :D expecting that from via unichrome igp is not fair!!

no actually i'm comparing that to a new PCI-E 8400GS DX10 card. considering how ancient 5200 is (and also an AGP) card i understand that its an antique and hence costs that much but imho that costly and should've fetched at least a 6200. i kno neither you nor me can do anything abt it. jus wishing that you get that....
