    Countless people I know run their LCDs at contorted reslolutions. Either because they don't know how to adjust the resolution or they don't have capable hardware.

    And yet they bear with it. I'll be sure to recommend this article to them. Great pick.

    The big issue is that some LCDs don't identify themselves properly and therefore the native resolution is not set right. Intel graphics are notorious for this kind of behavior and you have to manually edit the drivers to accomodate native resolutions on some LCD monitors.

    I cannot say how much I appreciate this post, along with some posts by Fuzzfas in another thread. I'm somewhat "hardware challenged", and being older, my eyes stink. By following what was recommended by Fuzzfas (native resolution, large fonts), and the stuff in ronjor's link, already I see a major difference. No more headache!
    Thanks so much, guys!

    Do you remember the title of Fuzzfas' thread or have a link to it?
    I only have sight in one eye and frequently get headaches too.
    Thanks.

    I brought a nice WS monitor for my computer w/o even knowing my graphics card specs in advance. The Intel 82865g graphics actually adapted and gave me the correct resolution :).

    Thats because your LCD identified itself correctly via EDID, the Viewsonic I picked up for my wife didn't and I have to hack the .ini everytime there is a new driver install. Funny thing is Ubuntu picks it up without any issues.

    This is the bane of most LCDs, I have all my settings at the lowest and then I have to lower the gamma via software to get any good contrast.
