Thomas N. Posted September 13, 2006 Report Share Posted September 13, 2006 I am using an Acer TFT-Monitor (AL 2017) with a native resolution of 1400x1050 as an external monitor for my notebook (Acer Aspire 5612-100 with a NVidia GeForce GO 7300 graphics card). Using the windows display manager, respectively the NVidia settings tool I don't manage to set the display resolution to 1400x1050. I have tried different drivers: 83.40 (driver update from the acer website) and also the very latest driver (91.47 with modded INF. file). For the 83.40 driver I found that 1400x1050 is in the modes list. I'd like to work in dual view: 1280x800 on the laptop screen and 1400x1050 on the external TFT. Actually I could set the resolution to 1400x1050 - but only for the notebook screen and not for the plug-and play 20'' monitor. For the plug-and play monitor (no matter if I use it as primary or secondary monitor) the list of possible resolutions (among them are 1280x1024, 1400x900 and 1440x1050) doesn't include 1400x1050. I have also tried user-defined resolutions. 1440x1050 and 1600x1050 are allowed. 1300x1050 is rejected as an unvalid resolution. Trying to add 1400x1050 I get a different message - 'the user defined resolution cannot be added'. I am currently running the monitor with a resolution of 1440x1050, but this is still unsatisfactory as the the image is spoild by blurred stripes. Does anybody know a better solution for this problem? Thanks in advance, Tom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
