Default Re: Geforce2 GO

The original monitor that came off the computer is 15" and had an optimal resolution of 1600x1200. The seller of my replacement screen listed this monitor as 1600x1200 also. Like I said. I can switch to this resolution but then I can't read text because it gets grainy. When I switch back to a lower resolution the warning message telling me that I'm not setting it to optimal resolution pops up. My old monitor (before the backlight died) could be set to any resolution and look good.


Anyone else have any thoughts? Were the screens on latitudes and inspirons different in some way? Were ther drivers for the screens different. I couldn't find anything that put this information in simple terms. I can live with it at a lower resolution, this was just a cheap fix until I buy a new computer but if its just a matter of downloading and installing a new driver then I'd like to do it.

Thanks

Sorry, my mistake.

I had no idea laptop screens could support such high resolutions. I just looked it up and its UXGA which is 1600x1200. I wonder why they make such a high resolution small laptop LCDs, when most desktop LCDs are stuck at 1280x1024. Even the 19" ones.

As to your problem... Does it show up in a screen capture? Like if you hit print screen and paste it into ms paint and then go back to 1024x768, does the image show the problem?

That might make it easier to identify.

I'll check that out and get back to you...I suspect that it will still look the same unless maybe I transfer the screen capture to another computer. I wont be able to mess with it again for a couple of days.

A screen capture dumped into paint shows the same results. Setting resolution to a lower setting clears up the text in the screen capture...

Anyone have any thoughts? Surely someone must have an idea of whats going on.
