    Display Driver - Lilliput 8" + Commell - 800x480

    Hi folks, I've been trawling this forum for aaages, so the ones rolling there eyes thinking "god, not another 800x480 thread" can stop right there!

    Problem that needs our collective brainpower is:

    Lilliput 8" 16:9 889GL-80NP/C/T
    http://www.lilliput.cn/889GL-80NP.html

    Commell LV-677
    http://www.cartft.com/catalog/item/?wm_item_id=696

    I want them to marry and have kids, 800x480 kids!

    I have tried the standard drivers that came with the motherboard, have also tried the drivers suggested on the carTFT page, not working either!

    Soooo, where on gods sweet earth can I get hold of a driver that will work, any ideas people?

    I have the 889GL, and I can't get it to work on 800x480 with ANY video card.

    I have tried 1 ati video cards, 2 nvidia ones, and on Dell generic (I think its intel). No luck at all running 800x480. I'v tried powerstrip, different drivers, different powerstrip settings. I have tried the suggested settings mady by on Xenarcs website and many others here.

    Seems like no one has a Lilliput that displays 800x480 correctly.

    unless its native 800x480 dont count your chickens, you just cant magically add pixels that arent there. Someone wasnt thinking properly

    it is 800x480 native, but its impossible to make it run at its own native res.

    Righteo, so now I am going to find a quite courner to cry in You'll telling me that with all the other posts and feedback on Lilliput's 800*480 issues that this "new" monitor still has the same issues!? Why are people buying Lilliputs if you cant even display the native resolution? And equally, why the hell hasnt Lilliput pulled their finger out and sorted this issue?

    And MORE importantly why the hell did I buy a monitor that cant even display its native resolution!! If I wanted something that displayed in "squished screen" I would have bought some cheap arsed piece of crap, or maybe that's what I did?

    Man, I guess it all boils down to research doesnt it!

    yes it annoys me also. the lack of support from lilliput doesn't help either.

    yeah it usually does boil down to research....
    It is 800x480 native resolution...

    if you are running windows try this:
    under display properties go to settings and hit advanced.
    Under this window go to adapter and the bottom theres a cool little button that says "list all modes..." Try looking there for 800x480 and give that a shot

    A laptop i had did support that resolution, but if you are using an old video card... dont count on it being there.

    Good luck with the research...

    problem is there isn't many 800x480 screens that are 8" widescreen.
