Windows 7: monitor resolution problem.

monitor resolution problem.

hi from greece fellas! recently i obtained a 32 inch LG tv,the model is LG32LH2000.when i plugged it in the pc the resolution was still 1920x1080 but when i reboot the computer or press "scan" in the resolution properties window,the resolution changes to 1360x768 by force and then i cant set it back to 1920x1080.in the resolution properties window it says that 1360x768 is the recommended one,all the rest are lower.i also have no idea about cables,the one i use is the classic one with the 2 little screws to the sides.1360x768 is bad,the screen looks crooked,the only solution that i found is to plug in the old screen,press "scan" and then it automatically changes the resolution back to 1920x1080 and in the end i plug in the new tv again but without pressing "scan".the problem is i cant keep the old monitor,i must find a solution for the new one.any help would be much appreciated.thank you for your time friends!

Hi Aarbron

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

My first suggestion is to replace the VGA adapter that I'm assuming you're using. I would get an HDMI cable. According to AMD's Product Specs you have an HDMI port, as well as a DVI port, and either of these is preferable to the VGA.

Just before you "scan", does the control panel correctly identify your monitor? Check Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display\Screen Resolution and tell us what is displayed there. Mine looks like the attached photo.

yes yes,when i press "scan" with the new monitor plugged in,it says "LG TV" and the recommended resolution turns into 1360x768 by force,the 1920x1080 cant be found anywhere,only lower resolutions.if i dont press "scan",the old monitor's name is in and it's "M2362D".

Then my first suggestion is the next thing I'd try. Cheap HDMI cables run about $15 USD. I don't know how that converts in Greece.

Turbo-X Καλώδιο HDMI should work fine. Be sure before you order that your TV has HDMI jacks. Get the length you need.

Turbo-X Καλώδιο HDMI to DVI-D M/M will work if you only have DVI on one end.

Do you have ANYTHING that will plug into that HDMI cable, then the tv input? In other words, will anything drive that HDMI channel?
