FirebirdTN Posted July 9, 2006 Report Share Posted July 9, 2006 Hi everyone. Been a LOOONNNGGG time since I stopped by. I found your site a few years back and installed your custom .inf and 44.63 (I think-can't remember exact version, and I can't figure out which ones are installed) drivers to give me stability when playing games on my laptop. Thank you by the way. I never bothered to update the drivers, because....well, these have worked just fine for me all this time. I recently purchased a new TV; my first HD set, and it has a VGA connection on it. I am wanting to hook my laptop up to it so I can game on a larger screen. Hanging out at the AVS forums, I ran upon a thread where a very knowledgable user has done the legwork in getting 1:1 pixel mapping on my particular model TV and has shared his knowledge. Basically, the problem lies in the "overscan" of the TV which causes some of the 1280x720 pixels to not be visible, which will cause the start menu button to be off screen, etc. This user, using powerstrip, has created the custom resolution/timings necessary to completely fill the TV screen while maintaining 1:1 pixel mapping. The problem is, I cannot get it to work. What I am wondering is....since powerstrip states that only a handful of drivers support custom timings, yet Nvidia and ATI being 2 of the largest video chip makers and powerstrip works with most, if not all of their desktop products, I am wondering if its the custom .inf or driver version that is preventing powerstrip from creating the custom resolution? Thanks for any input. For more info on this subject, see this thread on the avsforums: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread....age=1&pp=30 Thanks! -Alan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
