    Image Quality

    I'm a newbie looking for advice.

    I have a Dell Latitude CPX laptop that I'm using to run GPS(DeLorme) and MP3s.

    When I hook the laptop to a television or my 7" TFT LCD Color Monitor, the picture is a bit blurry.

    What can I do to sharpen my picture?

    I assume the TFT LCD is composite.

    You need a VGA monitor....simple as that really.

    By composite, if you mean does the monitor have rca connections on the back, yes.

    So I need a monitor with a vga connection on the back?

    Yes m8, rca is composite. If you have a read through this section of the forum you'll see lots of threads on this very subject of image quality on composite monitors...

    Eg... Could you live with composite instead of vga?

    That's what the man said.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
