I have an Acer AL1916w 19" Wide screen monitor. I can run it at 800*600, 1024*768, 1152*864, and 1152*921 resolutions just fine( other than having everything to small for the user to read and really fat circles. The ideal resolution for it would be 960*600 which is the only resolution i have found that doesn't work. The problem is the text is not clear and parts of letters are missing. I have tried the computer with another monitor and the monitor with another computer for a while. The monitor with problems, on another computer had the problem occasionally but was fixed by restarting the monitor. I have tried updating the video card driver, cleaning the monitor , I have tried Clear Type enabled. I don't know the problem. The Acer monitor is about 3 years old.
BTW I have a 2.4 GHZ Pentium 4 CPU a Nvidia GeForce 5500 fx Video card and another screen in addition to the Acer.
Please help.
Thanks in Advance.

There is a way to increase the font size on Internet browsers as well as increasing the size of desktop icons if size is an issue. Hitting Ctrl and + at the same time in Internet Explorer increases the size of the page.

No, I don't think that was a available resolution and I can't get the custom resolution to work.
