Well that means the videos aren't playing in 1080p, then. On youtube you have to set it, and a lot of videos don't have 1080p. Often when it says it's an HD video, what it means is 720p. EDIT: What this all means is that it's a software issue, not a hardware one. the great randini a b U Graphics card December 26, 2012 6:36:34 PM does it display a 1920 x 1080 resolution?
