    I've downloaded a few softwares for detacting missing and outdated drivers, and it was, as expected, found that the monitor driver is problematic regarding the additional attached screen.

    I've plugged my laptop to a different screen, and there was no problem with adjusting the resolution.

    my screen is LG Flatron 2262TQ.

    I'm pretty sure now that my problem is either missing the spesific driver for this kind of screen, or my incapibility of installing it correctly.

    still would love to have your help

    and thanks again for all those who answered and tried to help
    If it's the right driver, it will work.
    Is that an exe or zip file?
    The driver has to be extracted to a folder and only then browse to this folder from device manager.

    Are you on 32bit or 64? Because the driver has to match with the system in order to work.

    Do I have to extract it to the a spefic folder, such as one of the system folders? otherwise, its not working. downloaded the file, extracted it to downloads folder, tried to change the driver to this folder but was told again that the best drive3r is already installed.

    but thanks again, anyway

    OK. Just one last thing:
    Do you know the name of the motherboard?

    Sorry.

    The exe installer here or the zip seems to be the best suitable 64bit option from Intel:
    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sear...cs+3000%2f2000
    But it depends if there are different types of those graphics (different motherboard specs).
    Otherwise use the current drivers if no other better match.

    What I do on my pc is just uninstall the older driver + delete software from Device Manager and then install the new one from scratch.

    Sorry for all the tips that didn't worked in this case.

    Regards

    Thanks

    If the ones I posted fro Intel don't work...

    In that case see this:
    ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download X501A
    select: Windows 8 64bit

    + VGA driver
    VersionV9.17.10.2828
    It's pretty recent: 2012.10.19update
    Extract the zip to install but remove (uninstall) the older one just to start clean.
    This is the one for your notebook, X501A.

    Good luck.

    Thanks.

    I followed your instruction. unfortunately there was no change. I tried, after failing, to open the exe file dierectly instead. but it said I have no minimum requirements for that. when going the regular way there was no change.

    thank you very much for your time.

    This is odd. ASUS recommends that driver for your device on Win8and still nothing...

    -Try to run that installer as administrator .
    -Yes, you can also extract it with 7-Zip (right click -> 7-Zip -> extract...) and then Device Manager routine.
    7-Zip

    Otherwise you'll have to rely on a Win7 driver (same site) or remain with the current one (this is last option).

    One last tip:
    If you have older "Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver" installed:
    Click image for larger version
    If you don't have it, it's not necessary to install, in my opinion.

    I've given all the tips I got.
    Nothing more to add.

    Good luck

Awful Screen Resolution in Graphic Cards
In windows 7 my best screen res is 1280x800 which is great, however on windows 8 I only get two options 800x600, or 1024x768 which looks terrible, does anybody know why this is, and is it just because its and early build of windows or are Microsoft just being stupid.
I have installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview, but I can't the screen resolution of 800x600 to choose. Only 1024x768 is displayed which is greyed out and I can't select any other resolution. However, I have updated the monitor drivers and I am using 800x600 resolution in windows 7.
