Hello, everyone! For past 4 days I've been searching every ware on internet to find a fix for my issue, i hope some one can help me here...

So, i have an old LG monitor i'ts native resolution is 1680x1050 at 60hz and when i'ts connected to PC via HDMI, GPU sees it's native resolution as "1080p, 1920x1080" but uses "1080p, 1680x1050". (See screenshot #1)
When you change resolution in windows,(doesn't mater witch one you chose) the resolution is chaining but "Active Signal Resolution" stays at 1920x1080. (Also at screenshot #1)

If you change the resolution to 1280x1024 in GPU Properties the "Active Signal Resolution" also changes to 1280x1024. (See screenshot #2) How can i make it do the same with it's native resolution 1680x1050?
Also, in NVIDIA Control Panel "Scaling" is set to "No Scaling".  (See screenshot #3)
And the most annoying thing, is that my other 2 monitors DO HAVE 1680x1050 as an option in NVIDIA Control Panel (See screenshot #4 and #5)
Also x2, when i use it via VGA, the native resolution is correct 1680x1050p 60hz but i don't have VGA on my main PC.

Please help! If you don't know the way to fix it please at least give your thoughts.

I don't understand what the problem is... just select the correct resolution and don't worry about it..?

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

That's the problem. When correct resolution is selected "Active Signal Resolution" stays at 1080p witch makes monitor rescale the image and the end image quality is very bad.

Have you tried disabling one of your other displays? I hope this doesn't fix it

Damn, so, either the GPU is dying (unlikely) or the Monitor is dying (somewhat likely) with a possibility of just a dying port
