    Hi all,

    Ive adding a 7" tft-lcd monitor to my system and cannot set the screen res to the correct size which should be 1140x234 :wallbash:. Does anyone know how I go about this as this will be modded into the case.

    Cheers Ronnie.

    Operating system is Windows XP pro, connected via the s-video. Have moved to modding.

    What kind of video card do you have?
    If you have an Nvidia card you can use the nvidia control panel, to set the resolution to what ever you want.

    1140x234 sounds a bit weird. 7" widescreens are normally around 640x3xx or something. try to use a lower rez and work your way up till you find something that looks good. I have seen some screens which use upscaling but the picture looks crap IMO.

    You can try a program called PowerStrip, which allows you to customize resolutions, refresh, timings, etc. for auxiliary displays. Not sure what your display controller is, but they seem to support quite a few. I don't have any experience with this program, but have heard quite a bit about it. Do a search if you need more detailed info and let us know how it works out.
