  • Quick Question: 800x480 support on Intel D945GCLF?

    I read a couple threads (links lost now) that mentioned it was not possible to get 800x480 resolution with Intel's new D945GCLF motherboard. Has anyone figured out how, because that's kind of a deal breaker for me.

    (btw I *did* search)

    Also what is this? A green cow/pig/sheep? : )

    I didn't see 800x480 as a choice on my D945GCLF board, so it looks like you'll have to go with the next best thing D201GLY2A.

    EDIT: 800x480 is now supported with a BIOS updated.

            I haven't tried powerstrip. I really don't have any problem with 800x600 plus my puter is too far away

              Isn't it kinda distorted, if that's not your native res?

              I don't suppose one of you with the board wants to dl powerstrip and see if it will let you do 800x480? Think of it as a contribution to science ; )

                post me a link to powerstrip and I'll give it a go. I have 2 displays on my D945GCLF, on on the OB VGA running 800 x 600, and one on a PCI Radeon 7000 running 600 x 480. I've never tried powerstrip, so this should be interesting.


                BTW, I'm having trouble getting the OB audio to work on my GCLF, running XP SP3. Intel Tech support said try SP2. but the only copy of XP I have comes with SP3. For some reason, the AC97 ALC662 audio device is not recognized. All I get is an unknown PCI device, and trying to force the drivers will not work, I've tried them all. Any ideas?

                    Installed Powerstrip. Messed with as many settings as I could figure........

                    Best I could get on the onboard VGA was 600 x 480. Otherwise it was 600 x 800.

                    bummer

                      No problems running OB audio and XP SP3 here, but I'm using TinyXP rev09.

                        "If it aint broke, dont fix it"

                        Stay with sp2 if it works for you. It's a car computer not a corporate server so it doesn't need the latest updates.

                        Tiny xp works great, i tried microXP but couldn't get it to work right with the drivers.
                        Love

                          Thanks.... and craaaaaaaaaaaaap. Well at least we know for sure. Guess I'll go for the D201GLY(A?) instead... as I'd like to go for the native res of my screen I think.

                          Bummer about your driver problem.

                            Which display do you have? I have a Lilliput and I love the 800x600 resolution, I would never run 800x480 even if it was the native resolution.

                              Oh really? And it's not blurry/weirdly proportioned? I have the k301.
