Windows 7: Intel HD graphics custom resolution

Intel HD graphics custom resolution

I have an Intel HD (core i5) graphics card. I'm trying to go past the resolution of 1366 x 768 which is the highest already. There is a custom resolutions tab in the Intel Control Panel but it's not doing anything at all. Is there any way to go to a little higher like up to 1600 x 900 or something?

The maximum resolution is set not by the graphics adaptor (assuming there is enough available RAM), but by the monitor or other device you are using - It would appear that you are using a 16:9 TV monitor which has a native resolution of 1366 x 768, as there are only 1366 x 768 pixels available even if you increased the resolution manually it would not improve matters

The laptop monitor I'm on is capable of up to 1600 x 900. I'm just trying to get more room on the screen. Are there any programs that let's you change resolutions? I have 1696 available video memory and 8 GB total RAM.

If the native resolution is 1600 x 900, and the system is only showing 1366 x 768 it would appear that the driver for the monitor is incorrect or maybe the default only.

You will need to download and install a driver from the laptop manufacturer's that supports the full resolution
