Cant change screen resoloution

Hi all
I recently broke my VGA port on the motherboard, so i had to get a VGA via graphics slot, Since I have done this i am not able to change the resolution.


I have also gone into advanced settings, list all modes, when I do this it does change but it's weird and discoloured.

I have also updated drivers via device manager but it tells me I have the most up to date version, Please help me i need to change this

tolska you haven't mentioned your PC's BIOS--you first need to restart into the BIOS and find the setting to use Onboard Video (and turn that off).

OK maybe you've done that--then the only other thing I can think is the driver you picked for your graphics card is somehow wrong.

Hi, Welcome to forums.

First thing I would suggest to you is to fill in your system specs. Tell us what video card are you using. If it is NVIDIA or AMD, you have to download the drivers from their site, rather than Windows.

It will be really helpful, if you can fill in your specs first.

Any other suggestions please

Hi Tolska.

You applied the Trident VGA adapter after breaking the VGA port?

Upload your MSINFO32.nfo file, as it will help us to understand the situation better.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
