    I installed XP and it works, but I switched to a old monitor that i had laying around. (old 14" IBM) and the resolution only goes down to 800x600. How do i lower it to 640x480???
    I can see the whole width of screen, just missing the top and bottom!!!!

    My KVM cables arent here yet so i need some solutin till they arrive. Any ideas how to lower it???

    Have you tried adjusting the monitor?
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    the monitor cant take it. it starts acting up in that mode. I dont think it can handle the res. I think it one of the ones that came w. 386s, hehehe.
    It handles 640x480 great.
    How do i go back?????? :cry:

    don't you have manual controls on this monitor? if you do have then then can't you use them to reduce the length and width of picture :?:

    OK, I'll use some visual aids.
    Monitor 10 secs after being turned on.
    Freaky vertically elongated.

    about 30 sec. later. goes dark and starts scrolling. Superfreaky effect. I thought i blew it first time it happened.
    So even if i could get it to shrink vertically, this would happen.
    I need it at 640x480!!!!!!

    Ya kiddin' right? :confused:

    It's lucky not to fall over dead. :laugh:

    Surely ya can pick up a second hand monitor for $30 that's only a fraction of the age of that thing. :?:

    Leave it on too long and it might blow up m8 so be careful there. ;)
