Default how to set 1400x1050 under WindowsXP on GeForce 2 ??

I've got two systems - RedHat Linux and WinXP - under RedHat I can set up 1400x1050x32bpp but under Windows I can't. Is it possible to do this under Windows, how?

Use PowerStrip. You CAN make any resolution with it. Its shareware though.

Cheers,

hm... how?

when I try to switch to 1400x1050 powerstrip wants to restart my computer - when I restart it, I still have old resolution, and when I try again switch to 1400x1050, it again asks me for restart... so... I give up - I don't know, what to do

but... thansk for advice!

You must do "user defined" resolution. DO NOT use that one that is predefined. Also make sure that PowerStrip starts automatically and it activates the customisations.

I haven't done this myself, so I don't know what could be the problem.
