    Hi sorry if this is the wrong newsgroup,

    I gave my dad my old computer a couple months ago to replace his old Packard
    Bell one. I kept my monitor though, meaning that my dad was left with his
    packard bell 1015. My problem is that though the montior manual says the
    maximum resolution is 1024x768, I can only acheive 800x600. I have searched
    all over the internet for a solution, trying different drivers etc but
    nothing seems to work. Any1 know a solution?

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Scott

    Scott the resolution or refresh rate of the monitor is dependent on
    the "Video Card" if you have a on board video you would have to look
    for an updated driver to achieve that size and resolution. Also if you
    have a PCI Video card it will also need newer drivers and they can be
    obtained via the manufacturer's web site. (ATI-Cirrus Logic-NVIDIA
    etc)

    I hope that helped?
