Program to change res for widescreen monitor
I have a widescreen monitor from DScustoms the ratio is 16:9, and i would like to be able to set my screen res to a number with the same aspect ratio, like 720x400, but you can't do this with the regular display settings in XP, so is there a program that would do this for me?
i must have been using it wrong before, because i couldn't get it to work properly. What steps do you have to go through inorder to get powerstrip to work with widescreen?
Powerstrip is a pig to get right with my limited experience
What graphics card are you using? If it's a Matrox, you can get a widescreen resolution out of it by using the Matrox "Powerdesk" control panel pages and a bit of fiddling. I'm now running 848x480 which gets recognised by the panel as 852x480, and the aspect ratio is pretty much spot on.
If it's a Via EPIA board, you're stuffed if you're trying to use the on-board VGA to get widescreen - I ended up buying a Matrox G450 for a good price in order to get the resolution right. It also had the happy coincidence of accelerating DVD play back
well i ended up ordering a radeon pci card since thats the only slot i have avaliable, so i guess i will use powerstrip to get it right
Ah that old story... just done the same my self... Is it a Via machine your using ?
