I have a Samsung 226BW widescreen monitor and a Radeon 9800 Pro Graphics Card.The max resolution on the monitor is 1680 x 1200 but if I set it up to the maximum the screen is not filled. I can set it up to 1024 x 768 and then screen is filled. Any advise on how I can set it up to a higher resolution would be appreciated......Dave R.
The 9800 pro definatly should be capable of it click here thats the specs of it. It must the widescreen part of it thats causing the problem. I know from what others have said the widescreen monitors leave a bar each side when what they are trying to display is not widescreen and this is normal. What I don't know is how to stretch the image so it appears full screen, and even if you do it would it not look somewhat odd?
