    Hello, I have a LG M2432 monitor and a ATI RADEON HD 3450 video card on my old computer. When I try to select 1920x1080 it essentialy says "Format not supported" and reverts back. The monitor right now is at 1600x1200, which is terrible on my eyes. I've installed the drivers for both the monitor and the video card.

    When you look in Display Properties for the monitor, does the computer detect the monitor type as an LG M2432?

    I cannot find this monitor on the internet. Check the make and model. Is it a stand alone monitor (check on back for numbers) or the screen of a notebook? It is possible that the settings you have are as far as it can go.

    I'm running out of ideas... When you installed the RADEON HD 3450 drivers, was it from the graphics card manufacturer, or from AMD? Whichever it was, you might try the other.
