16:10 Widescreen Issue


  • Resolution will not go higher than 1280x800 on 16:10 monitor (Samsung 2433BW). Native resolution is 1920x1200; using Nvidia GTX460.

    Screen Resolution option is locked at 1280x800 (16:10 Widescreen) and cannot be changed.

    Windowed, Full Screen Window, or Full Screen; resolution remains at 1280x800.
  • Myth ,

    When you run dxdiag, does it handshake with the monitor and recognize the native rate correctly?

    You can generate your dxdiag info by using the Direct X Diagnostic Tool:

    Click on Start
    Click on Run
    Type in: dxdiag (In Vista, type dxdiag in the search field)
    Hit Enter or OK

    Click on the Save All Information button at the bottom, and create a dxdiag text file to view afterwards.

  • Myth,

    Three monitors would suggest you're using 2 video cards.

    It'd be interesting to know if it behaves differently with one of the two cards removed. I know that's a major hassle though so it's no problem if you'd rather not go through it.

    I have a Dell 24" at home I can try tonight with my GTX 580 if I remember. My other screens are all 16:9 and I've seen no problems like you're describing so far.

  • Myth,

    I'll look at my Dell 24" tonight and see if anything's odd with it. I noticed too that they sort of threw us a curve with the new patch removing the res display in the windowed modes.

    Ok, got a chance to play with my Dell 30" and 24" screens this morning. I had no issues at all with selecting the available resolutions they can use. I was never forced into a specific setting.

    I also can't get your Rapidshare links to work...

    Are you using DVI to DVI cables on the monitors with no adapters in-line? Which Nvidia drivers? I'm on 275.33 still with my GTX 580.

    Oops. Chrome's Notscripts addon strikes again....

    Do you have any screen overlay programs installed? Anything along the lines of Asus' Gamer OSD? In Wow, this particular app causes a problem with our video detection method. For example, if it's running before the game is started, it causes a different value to be returned when we query the driver to see what it's capable of. This was breaking DX11 use for people with capable hardware/OS. If they reinstalled the video drivers and didn't reboot, it would run fine. However after they rebooted and tried the game again, it was back to the original problem. Uninstalling the screen overlay (Gamer OSD) is the only solution so far.

    This may have nothing to do with the D3 Beta but it does warrant checking.
