Can you share the output of:

xrandr

That’ll output your display outputs, including preferred and current.

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 16384 x 16384
DisplayPort-2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DVI-0 connected primary 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 60.00*
800x600 60.32 56.25
848x480 60.00

Are you there?

I did wait a bit, but a guy’s gotta sleep :wink: :sleeping_bed:

At the moment the only thing that’s really telling me, is it hasn’t correctly detected your monitor’s capabilities, which is perhaps obvious at this point.

Does your screen support HDMI or DisplayPort and are you able to connect it via that?

DVI is an older standard that can be a bit more finicky, particularly as the standard bridged analogue and digital with the various connectors/leads and such. The current behaviour seems typical of an analogue connection.

My screen only has a vga port, on the other hand my graphics card has a dvi and a display port so i used a dvi to vga adapter and connected a vga caple to it and to the monitor

I’ve not tried this, but the same tool could be used. Maybe something like:

xrandr --output DVI-0 --mode 1440x900

You might also include --rate xx in that command, replacing xx with your monitors supported refresh rate.

Does this run when the pc runs or do i have to run it everytime when my pc starts and is there a way to make it run with the pc?

I found a solution to the issue all i have to do is use cvt 1440 900 and cope a line of code it will give me and use xrandr to make a new mode with xrandr --newmode and after it the line of code i copyed the add the mode to my screen which is dvi-0 and it will be in the settings
