    Monitor unable to use laptop resolution


    My laptop model is Asus X550J runing Intel Core i7, Geforce GTX 850M and i wanted to connect my monitor to my laptop so i use the vga cable to connect to my Acer p193w monitor.

    When i tried to use it , it will have a pop up saying that the resolution is not correct or something similar. It then told me to use the setting of my laptop which is 2048*1152 resolutions.

    Currently the resolution of my Acer Monitor is 1024 * 768 and when i tried to to use the recommend resolutions, the monitor will go blank and says input not detected and after which reverts back to its original resolutions.

    Does anyone know how i can use my laptop resolution on my monitor?
