# 1 Resolution for my 19" screen.
01-13-2010, 11:00 PM
Hey guys since im kinda bad with pc technical issues and i cant seem to find the correct resolution to use for STO i thought i pop in and see if anyone can give me a hand.

Got a 19" LCD screen and these are my pc "stats"

Intel Core 2 Duo
2.66gz
2 gigs of ram

And my video card is a GeForce 8600 GT

Now i tried the 1024x760 but i get a black edge on the screen,i tried the one higher then that and it looks better but the only problem is that the letters/numbers on the screen look way too small.

Would apreciate any advice that you guys could give me,thanks in advance.

What is the model of LCD? Each LCD has a native resolution it prefers. You can set it to a different resolution but the LCD itself has to scale it to display it.

It sounds like you might have a widescreen LCD. 1024x768 is a resolution for the 4:3 ratio screens. Widescreens are (if I remember right) 16:9 or 16:10.

Either do a search for your model or post it here and that should tell you what resolution to use. If you think your graphics card can't handle it (it should but don't know how well), you'll just need to adjust the detail of the graphics.
