    Ok, I hooked up my new monitor (from my other topic) and it looks great. It says the monitor has a resolution of 1440x900, but that resolution does not appear. The highest one that is on the list is 1360 768. Can someone make this a little clearer for me and tell me whats going on? thanks.

    Sounds like 1440*900 is the highest resolution of your monitor, but 1360*768 is the highest resolution your graphic card can handle. I don't there's any way for you to get 1440*900 other than replacing your graphic card.

    Slightly off topic: I gotta LCD TV for xmas today and I've hooked it up to my laptop as a monitor. It looks alright... but not great

    Have you checked your video card configuration pages?


    That's because it's a TV, not a monitor.
