Getting computer display correct on 7" widescreen
I just got my 7" widescreen tft lcd in-dash screen in my car
it's a panasonic screen with 1480 x 234 resolution
it looks great for movies/ps2/etc, but i can't get it to look quite right for my computer display
i got a dell inspiron 7000 with rage card...it is s-video out of laptop, to a s-video->rca converter i got to rca input into the screen
the laptop is running win98se, and the display properties only let me do 640x480, 800x600, or 1024x768 ... none of these fill the whole lcd screen, as it is 1480x234 ... also, the text looks really small...when i do 640x480, it's easiest to read, but then i have to minimize the bottom part of street atlas2003 in order to see the maps and street names well enough
is this because my lcd is widescreen? or because it is just a tft screen, but isn't vga,svga compatible? if so, do i need to sell it and buy a different in-dash lcd that is vga compatible? will that look much better? or should i buy a 5.6" that isn't widescreen? if so, which would u recommend? i want to keep it under 300 and i don't need it motorized...my current one cost only $229
if there is a way besides display properties to change my resolution, then that'd be great...maybe some 3rd party program lets u specify what exact resolution you want?
