Thumbs down Re: GeForce 6100 with ACER AL2216WD

No, it does NOT work with the 6100. Maybe it works with the 6150, but not with my 6100. As far as I can tell. So now I'm up a creek.

When I do your procedure the option of having 1680 x 1050 AND 32-bit colors at 60Hz is not presented. It doesn't exist. I can't get it to do it. If I ask the software to add a 50Hz mode, THEN it permits me to ask for 1680 x 1050 x 32. But the monitor then croaks with given a 50Hz input.

The chipset just isn't fast enough. Very weird -- the Acer resolution is not rocket science. (Or maybe the NVidia software is confused. I did try going into the full-manual graphics setup mode -- where you get to define your own "Front Porch" and all -- but I wasn't able to make sense of it.)

Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The nearest graphic card that "might" work (won't know until we try it, will we?) is miles and $$$ away from me.
