    G945GCLF2 and Lilliput 629 800x480 issue

    Hello,
    As far as I understand, the 800x480 mode is a well known issue with Intel embedded graphics.
    I read a few threads here on the issue but still can't sort this out...
    Can anyone please help me? Specifically, how to make Lilliput show stuff correctly with G945GCLF/G945GCLF2 (Atom) boards?

    -- Win XP detects the Lilly as 800x600. Picture looks OK but squeezed in vertical direction.
    -- There's no 800x480 resolution in the "supported resolutions" list
    -- If I uncheck "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display", then I am able to select 800x480. Windowz then tells me that my resolution is low and I can get better picture with higher resolution - this means that Windowz does try to set it. Lilliput however shows a 800x600 variant of 800x480 - letterboxed this time (black bars on top and bottom of the screen).

    There are 2 solutions suggested to this, as far as I could find..
    1. Stay with 800x600 (not really a solution : )
    2. Use Powerstrip to fix the timings.

    I tried Powerstrip - it didn't work with this board - the Advanced Timing option is disabled there..

    Did anyone manage to get it working right?
    Any help will be much appreciated,
    Thanks!

    Install the Intel IEGD drivers...it enables custom resolutions (and advanced timings in powerstrip) but you loose overlay controls

    Ouch.. Downloaded IEGD drivers..
    Can't figure out how to configure these - too many options.
    Any advise, please?

    Uninstall your default intel graphics drivers (that came with the board cd). Then you'll need to find where you installed the IEGD files. I believe the drivers are in a zip file in the "plugins" directory. I don't remember exactly where but the zip file has the words windows and drivers in it. You'll need to extract the files out of the zip folder and tell windows to install those drivers as your graphics drivers. The drivers are very bare bones. You can fool around with the IEGD interface and/or the DTD calculator but I just found it easier to use powerstrip and call it a day.

    Thanks!
    I suspect you're talking about the preconfigured drivers posted at cartft.com..
    The package I got directly from Intel.. I don't want to mess with that. It looks scary.
    The drivers from cartft installed OK but didn't do any good for me.
    Same story - 800x480 is letterboxed inside 800x600.

    It did unlock the Powerstrip though, but I didn't have much success with it either..
