for a couple of days, I rebooted my new computer about 20 times, which I recently bought, began to lag only because I can't put an 8-bit color. I will never buy intel processors again in my life.

Hello Andrey666, 



In order to continue further, I would like to confirm the following:



1. Based on motherboard specifications, it has a DVI port, not VGA. Are you using any kind of adapter to connect the monitor?


2. Both motherboard and the display have HDMI connectors, can you try with HDMI to verify if the limitation is on the port?


3. To connect the laptop to the monitor which type of connection did you use?
