    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

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

    bummer
    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.

    My lilliput is the 8" widescreen version, but I've also used the 7" version lilliput at 800x600 with nothing to complain about. However at 1024x768 it gets annoying, so I stick with 800x600.

    Hmm... so is it worth getting the older mobo for the 800x480 support, if only to see if I like it better?

    Why not borrow a laptop and temporarily run 800x600 on your lilliput and see if it's acceptable to you? Then you'll know which motherboard to buy.

    Version 099 of the BIOS for the D945GCLF supports 800x480, according to Intel (I have not tested it). Go here:

    I do not know why the post I made in this thread two days ago was never posted, but Intel has provide BIOS updates that now support 800x480. Just go to Intel's web page and navigate to the downloads for the D945GCLF and download either Version 095 or 099. Instructions included in the download.

    Sorry, no link, though I did include one in my apparently lost post.

    I also don't understand why my post does not appear, yet the index page shows this as a thread in which I've posted. I suspect I've been "moderated".
