My fullscreen monitor died and I had to buy a new monitor which unfortunately ended up being a widescreen because it's all that's available now. Now I'm having trouble setting the resolution on it. The resolution I've been using on my fullscreen monitor was 1024 x 768, and the way things looked at this res was PERFECT for me. The resolution itself looks OK on the widescreen, apart from all objects appearing stretched since that resolution is really for a fullscreen ratio. So I increased the resolution but no matter which setting I choose everything looks somewhat blurry. This goes for pretty much all the ones available; 1152x864, 1280x720, 1280x768, 1280x800, 1280x960, 1280x1024, 1360x768... It's not until I get to the absolute highest resolution, 1440x900, where things appear sharp and also in porportion. Unfortunately, everything on the screen is waaaaay too small. I know I can increase the size of icons, fonts etc. but everything else appears too small too, like images, functions inside software etc. So I set the resolution back to 1024x768, where everything appears in the size I like them, and I was going to change the screen size (on the monitors OSD settings), shrinking the screen horizontally, which I imagined would give me accurate porportions (I don't mind that I would get two black bars on the sides, if that is what it takes), but when I try the OSD system ironically skips over the size / position settings (go figure...), the highlight just literally just jumps from Brightness down to Color settings (all the ones having to do with screen size and position are greyed out). So please, can someone help me out? I want: - Things to appear in their accurate porportions - Be the same size as they are in 1024x768 resolution. That goes for EVERYTHING not just fonts and icons; for example I want movies to play in that resolution, I want pictures to be displayed that large when I open them, and so on (if the only way to do this on a widescreen monitor is by having black bars on the sides then so be it, just tell me how I can get to those settings since they're not selectable on my new Dell monitor). Please try to stick to helping me on what my dilemma is, not ask "why do you want to do that?" etc. This is the resolution I am used to and I can't work as efficiently in this horrible 1440x900 setting when everything is so tiny. I would really appriciate any tips. Thanks for reading.
