Was looking at this Acer Monitor,
it looked like a really good deal until I read the comments...
Cons: Bought for current XP computer use (VGA) and with future Vista computer (HDMI). Acer does not have an XP driver so cannot get the 1920x1080 aspect ratio to function.
Seriously? How can you not have an XP driver? I've tried google searching for this, couldn't find anything relevant. Thanks. :^: (Planning on using it for Computer / PS3 use.)
That comment... I don't understand it at all. As long as the computer can output in the resolution can output to that monitor. I'm not sure like... why they specifically needed an Acer driver. I don't think I've had a monitor come with its own driver to set its resolution. If I have I've never used it.
Yeah that comment makes no sense. Display of a particular resolution has little or nothing to do with the drivers from the monitor. It has more to do with what the video card is capable of displaying. Most video cards display a wide range of resolutions, but some are by accident or design crippled to only display a certain range of resolutions.
Case in point, my Dell Inspiron 700m laptop can't display 1680x1050, which means I wasn't able to use my new shiny 22" panel I bought a while back. It was not the capabilities of the video card (Intel Onboard which Intel says on their site can display this res), or the video card drivers. Turned it it was a crippled video BIOS that had the resolution disabled, with no option for an update.
Google you video card and desired resolution (mine was dell 700m 1680x1050) and I'm sure you'll turn up some results.
I never finish anyth
Otherwise it works lovely.
ICC profiles too, comes in handy in the print industry.
I've got a spare copy of Portal, if anyone wants it message me.
