Windows 7: Higher Resolution than 1080

Higher Resolution than 1080

I often plug my pc into my 42" TV screen, and it would be nice if there was a higher resolution than 1080 available. I know it isn't "native" to windows 7, but is there a way of getting higher resolutions other ways?

Thanks.

why would you want higher than 1080? its unlikely with a true HD source your eyes will be able to sell the difference provided your using a HDMI or DVI connection to the TV

well you can do it, i have a cheap nVidia graphics card in my work pc for dual monitors but it has native resolutions much higher than the standard windows ones using its own nVidia control panel software, highest output res is 2048x1536

but as said its a bit pointless unless your running a like 20ft cinema screen! lol!

Hello Tomha, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You're screen resolutions is dependant on both the TV/monitor and graphic cards. If the TV will only support 1080, then that's the highest your screen resolution will be even if the graphic card will support higher resolutions. Trying to force a higher resolution than the TV supports could result in a burnt out TV.
