    Isn't 848x480 already there?

    You may have to uncheck the "Hide the modes that my screen can't display."

    Try this:

    Right-click on desktop and select Properties

    On the Settings Tab, click Advanced

    On the Adapter Tab, click List All Modes

    You can get the proper widescreen display with the onboard video on the M10000, however, it looks like crap. You can barely read the text. DVD is fine though. So I suggest just living with 800x600 in distorted mode since it aint all that bad, then switch to the widescreen resolution when viewing DVDs.

    No it wasnt, but gonna try the latest Nvidea drivers and see if it appears. Done more reading on here and it seems all Geforces are indeed capable without to much bother, so hopefully new drivers will help.

    Thanks.

    Where were you looking? In "List All Modes" like in my last post?

    And what driver version are you using?

    Wait. Stop.

    If you are truly still running Windows drivers, you may want to try something...

    First check your driver version by:

    Right-click on desktop and select Properties

    On the Settings Tab, click Advanced

    On the Adapter Tab, click Properties

    On the Driver Tab is the driver you are using.

    ----

    If you are using a Windows driver, and want to see how much performance you've been losing, benchmark it. You can get a free graphics benchmark called 3dMark by Futuremark (formerly Mad Onion). It will demonstrate what you've been missing.

    OK. Run the benchmark. Record score.

    Install latest driver from nVidia.com.

    Benchmark again.

    Post results.
