    I now have 800x480 in my List! WooHoo

    Well, kind of done, it is saying refresh rate of 601Hz...

    The monitor just says out of range.. is one of the numbers incorrect?? i checked the registry, the entries for DTD_1 are exactly as the ones i put into the inf file..

    if i open up the registry entry for DTD_1, the values look correct except there are symbols on the right edge of the display panel.. i will have to install some software if you want a screenshot of that, as i have a very minimal install on the car computer..
    Here's a trick for capturing displays:

    Hitting the Printscreen button will capture an image of the entire screen, and copy it to the clipboard.

    Hitting ALT+Printscreen will capture an image of the Active Window only, whatever you have active in the foreground.


    Once you've captured the image, run Paintbrush (pbrush.exe), and you can paste it in as a new image. Save it as a Jpg, and you can post it here.


    And I'm glad that it works (sortof).. I'll look at the numbers again, and verify the settings..


    According to Xenarc, the monitor should display 61 Hz as the refresh.

    It's possible that I have the refresh rate off by an order of magnitude..


    The first two bytes, 96,96, are what control the refresh rate.

    9696 Hex in Decimal is 38550, or what is supposed to be 38.55 Mhz.


    Try this: Go into the registry, and change the first two bytes in DTD_1 to 0F 0F.

    0F 0F = 3855.


    Let us know, thanks.

    Still have 800x480 at 601Hz

    The other resolutions seem to haer odd refresh rates now also..

    I installed Irfanview, like i said, I had a minimal install, no Pbrush.exe

    Here a couple pics to show what is happening.

    Okay, the characters are just ASCII equivalents of the hex numbers.. doesn't matter.


    I'm going to snag a Xenarc sometime later this week, and do some more testing on my own..

    Also I have my LVDS cable, so I'm going to be testing 800 x 480 on that LCD as well.. but that's a different issue.

    One other thing to try is to change the C0 byte to 0C.. I may have had that backwards.

    nvidia puts out 800X480 out of the box (the 6150 integrated chip does anyways)

    the Intel G965 chip set just seems to not want to work at all. I honestly should have researched more before choosing this motherboard... If anyone had the G965(X300) chipset working with a 800x480 resolution, i would like to use the board I have already, it seems to be a huge hurdle though..

    I am not technical enough to make it work so I need to move to something that will work, it will be holding up my install soon.(I want it Right, not scaled 800x600)

    Laters
