Geforce 440MX and LCD - how to disable resolution scalling ?
 
hi,

i have just purchased the following monitor: Philips 223E, LCD 22', 16:9 using a VGA connector, for a rather old machine with GeForce 44MX AGP8 and Windows XP

i'm looking for a way to disable the scaling for resolutions that are below the native (i.e surround the screen with black space and do not scale to fit)

now...afaik newer nvidia drivers and cards support this options from the forceware control panel, e.g.:

but the latest driver for 440MX (which is 93.71 from y2006) does not have this option (and possibly the card itself does not support it?)
is there any way to make this work?

thanks.
l.l.

This card is not really supported with it's proper resolutions on LCD monitors in Linux.

thanks for the info,

just posting back to inform that i've got it sorted with the good old Windows application PowerStrip.
in my case at least, GeForce 440MX with Forceware 93.71 (winXP) does support up to 1920x1080px (i.e. the native of the 22" LCD) and pretty much any user defined resolution, being 4:3, 16:9 or other.

some info on PowerStrip here:

cheers

My mistake, I thought this was about Linux.
