    Super 7 LCD native resolution???

    hi, i just got this lcd off ebay and so far im pretty unhappy with it on the resolution part...

    I mean how can the native resolution be a stretched out 640x480???

    when i try 640x400 it gives me a letter box screen??? and 720x400 gives me a signal out of range message??? 800x600 just doesn;t fit and the desktop gets cut off on the top...

    I mean i can't even get this thing to to display any other reasonable resolution with out it being distorted... can someone out there point me in the right resolution i should be running this thing at... the only problem i have with running this thing at 640x480 is videos


    Videos with the 4:3 aspect ratio gets stretched out to the widescreen which makes everyone in it look fat and wide....


    please someone help me im like so frustrated i wasted $220 on this lcd, which took me like 4 months of saving up

    Well, without knowing what model LCD you have, I can't answer this. But if you bought a widescreen LCD, you should use a widescreen resolution. If you want a 4:3 resolution, then buy a 4:3 LCD.

    Your ideal resolution would probably be 800x480 if you have a VGA widescreen LCD.

    I don't think it's your screen. I'm very surprised that the screen can handle such an unusual resolution. What board do you have that you're outputting 720x405? Why not try for 800x480, then? It'll likely work better and you won't lose pixels. (I'm assuming your LCD takes 800x480, a standard resolution. I did a quick check on Super 7, and there are models with 1480x234 as well.)

    thats the only resolution i can get it to display without and stretching of the images... 800x480 get cutoff, in internet explorer the open and exit buttons get cut off and is not viewable... this is very strange tho becuz i manage to get it display it correctly once but then after that everytime i try, i get a signal out of range message...

    it;s not the screens fault becuz i have sent this unit to be replaced due to dead pixels and the unit i had before that could also not display it correctly... i will continuing experimenting with the unit once my midterms are over
