    Screen Resolution Problem

    My display is a "Dell 1503FP {analog} on NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400" (whatever that means)

    Basically, it's a flat screen. I have the color quality set to 32-bit (highest) and screen res set to 1024x768. When I switch the resolution to 800x600 or 1152x864, it works but everything gets a little blurry. Too blurry for it to even be practical. I would like to use a higher res - is there any way that I can? Or can't I b/c I have a flat screen? I don't know anything about any of this, so help is appreciated!

    Whats the refresh rate set at? You might have to throttle it back a bit -- flatscreens tend to not like high refresh rates @ high res

    LCD flatpanels have native resolutions (in your case, 1024x768). Because they have a set number of pixels, resolutions that are not multiples or half of the set resolution appear blurry. You can't use a higher resolution unless you can deal with the blurriness. Sorry man.
