Trouble getting Max Resolution RRS feed

  • Question

  • In my dell widescreen monitor I can’t seem to set the maximum resolution. The pc uses SIS 651 integrated graphics and I thought that was the problem but after googling it, I found that SIS 651 can get to 1680x1050 and told downloading the newest drivers would fix the issue.I downloaded tat.. Yet   it still doesnt work!!!! why?

  • It's a Video BIOS thing (VBIOS), haveing the latest driver can help on this issue but I asume you have a older VBIOS than 2.28.00. VBIOS is a little module located at your BIOS.

    Check this website out that is the Chipset manufacturer website: [blocked]

    So you have at this point to options:

    1. Update your BIOS from your motherboard manufacturer website and pray they have updated to a newer VBIOS that the one sayed before.

    2. If the first option didn't worked, if you have enough knowledge of the structure of a BIOS, you could use editing tools like CBROOM for AWARD Biose's and with the latest BIOS file, replace the VBIOS module for a newer one and flash that BIOS file to the motherboard. WARNING!! If you don't have enough knowledge on this matter don´t go for this option, you could end up with a bricked motherboard that won't start at all.
