I just bought a LG 24" w2452t yesterday, which is said to have the max resolution at 1920x1200.
BUT, when i hooked it up using the D-SUB port (there's another one called DVI-D port but since I didn't have the cable...), the highest resolution I can get is 1600x1200, the 1920x1200 even isn't in the properties setting. Knowing this a little, I went to Advance and unchecked the box that said something like hide modes your monitor can't display. Wala, the 1920x1200 appeared. BUT again, when I applied that, the screen went black with a message which said "ANALOG OUT OF RANGE 93.5 khz / 75 hz" and then turned back to 1600x1200
I tried to install the latest driver for the video card which is the Intel® extreme graphics 2 but the result was no better or even worse, the screen didn't even go back to 1600x1200. It STAYED like that and I had to reboot the computer - went to the VGA mode to reset it.
When I googled this matter, seems like a lot of people having this same problem but not much find a solution yet, my theory is that what caused this problem is my pathetic video card which is a Intel® 82865G Graphics Controller that is like 90mb
So, I totally give up on trying to solve this problem myself and turn to somewhat more experience, expert-like member of this forum to help me and people who have the same problem figuring this out once and for all!!!! THANKS in advance!!!
This is what I got from the hardware scanning (I deleted some parts I think are not important like sound card and stuffs like that)
