Is mine correct ?





No 17ich LCDs should be running at 1280 x 1024. All 17 LCD's have a native resolution on this. If you have it set at anything other than that, it will "interpolate" the pixels, make them blurry. If you move it to 1280x1024, everything will seem smaller, but beleive me, you then can fit MORE on the screen. See this info about your monitor, KO. Look for Resolution

Same thing with you Janelle, Wrong resolution. Should be 1280x1024

Look here for tech data

Same thing also with getting used to it at it's native resolution. Things will appear smaller, but don't foget, you can fit MORE on the screen and plus, it will look way clearer

If it's not an LCD, then you can set it to whatever you want. LCD's have native resolutions

WOAH!!! I just set it to that res... and I'm gonna need a magnifying glass!! LOL Actually it seems fuzzier... and seems as if the letters blur a bit and then clear up... then blur... then clear. Ugh.. not liking this! LOL

Yeah, it usually takes a bit to get used to. But it's up to you, but I hate HUGE icons and like to be able to display more on the screen plus that is the NATIVE res for your monitor.

(and save my eyesight!) Plus it doesn't blur when it's bigger - i don't know why it was doing that - seemed like it has interference at the NATIVE res
lol

Unlike the male species in this house I can and do read instructions. My last computer was always messed up. He just plugged anything in anywhere and said it was "up and running."u
