Windows 7: Max resolution issue

This is what I use and I love it. Great picture quality, and a huge screen size for not too much money.

Also, using VGA really limits your max resolution as it does not have as high bandwidth as DVI and HDMI do. HDMI even allows sending of audio to a monitor with speakers built in like the ASUS I linked to. Makes for less wires all over the place.

About VGA connections, how to determine what max resolution will be given VGA to VGA only? I am looking at a new external monitor for my laptop, the monitor supports 1920x1080, the laptop is 1280x800. Thanks.

If you get a new monitor that supports 1920x1080 you should be able to run that display using vga without any issues. Get a short vga cable something like 3 feet long. The longer the vga cables is the worse off the signal will be so you should just get a short cable for what you are doing so that you get the best signal.

The only other thing to consider is how powerful your graphics are in the laptop but that should only cause issues if you plan to play a game or something. If your just browsing the net or watching a few videos it should handle it fine.

Thanks ^ i just tried this out to my LCD tv, and saw that there are additional resolution options available when using the latest Intel chipset driver. I don't know what the max. res. of the tv is so I played around with each option until I found one that looked sharp and mostly fit the screen (it wasn't 1920x1080!).

It may be 1920x1200 or something like that if the tv is 16:10 instead of 16:9 not sure what the exact 16:10 HD resolution is but I am guessing it is around 1920x1200 or close to it.

Whenever I reinstall Vista it always sets it to 1920X1080, but it looks terrible so I set it to 1680X1050 (what it was made for) and its fine. With Windows7 same deal. But when I set it...
