800x600 stopped working! Help Please! Ex-Audio TS LCD
Hello. I have a 7" Ex-Audio (Lili rip-off) touchscreen paired with a M10000 board. Up until yesterday, worked fine. I was running at 800x600 at 32bit. Then it went blank... :nutz:
Now this wasn't a general blank. It was weird. The buttons (hardware buttons on the monitor), were irresponsive. The only button that worked was the channel selector between AV1, AV2, and PC. The brightness, auto-adjust, volume up/down, and menu buttons did nothing. So I was confused. Anyways, I rebooted. When POSTing, I saw everything just fine. Then when the Windows XP boot screen came... nothing. I can't tell if it froze or what, so reboot. Same thing. Really confused.
I then decided maybe the resolution was accidentally set to 4 bagillion by 3 bagillion or something and the lcd couldn't handle, so I went into the M10000's BIOS. I switched the settings for the video (resolution and output) for all different things. Even tried changing the memory allocated for video! I tried TV out and connected via an RCA to the monitors AV2 input and success! Fuzzy success, but it was there. I checked the display properties, and it was 800x600. Odd, just where I left it.
So reboot, changed the BIOS back to regular LCD output at 800x600 resolution, and nada. :mad:
So I thought maybe something software. So I reinstalled XP. I didn't want to lose everything, so I didn't format the drive, I just installed windows into the directory it was in overwriting any bad software/registry settings. Still nothing. Keep in mind that the XP installer screens all showed up just fine. Definately confusing.
After the reinstall, I hooked it up to an old CRT monitor and the video looked and worked fine at all resolutions. The LCD displayed 640x480, 1024x768, and 1280x"whatever it is".
The point is (and if you got this far, I applaud you), that the LCD will NOT display 800x600 at any colour depth. Other resolutions are fine but not 800x600! I know it did, because it was for a month or two now. Bewilders me.
Does anyone know of anyway to fix this. I would send it back for fixin' but I like many others hacked it up. I removed the shiny warranty sticker with haste and dremeled the back casing to finish it with epoxy around the front, Not really an option at this point. :(
