T60 ati monitor won't support any resolution above 1024x768

2008-08-28, 14:44 PM

After my monitor screen got broken (thanks united van lines) my IT dept sent the laptop in to have the monitor replaced. Once I got it back the monitor will not support any resolution above 1024x768 where before the accident it would support upto 1400x1050. Is this something I can tweak to fix or did I get a lesser capable monitor?

 

Thanks

 

Ryan

Hello,

 

i would send it back to service, TFT´s have only one native resolution and it seems that you get a XGA instead

of an SXGA+ TFT.

Make certain you're using the correct driver for your video card. A generic driver might only be capable of supporting an XGA display and not SXGA+.

 

If you share the model number of your T60 we could direct you to the correct driver.

 

But it's quite possible that the repair of your unit left it with a lesser, but more common, display.

Regards,

James
