Hi there
I've recently replaced my old LCD PC monitor with my TV LCD monitor which is
20" however the only time I can read writing clearly is when I set the
resolution to the TV's stats at 640x480 - very clear but the prob is that
everything TOO big so I can't get around the screen. How do I keep this
clarity at 640x480 but make everything fit the screen?
I've tried different resolutions but nothing works as clear as the above.
I have a NVIDIA GeForce 440 card so card is fine.
Thanks
Martin.

Martin,

You need to check with the manufacturer of the TV LCD monitor and find out
what the native resolution is, then set your desktop resolution to that
setting. This is a common issue with LCD screens.

You may also find a Windows driver for the TV LCD on the manufacturer's web
site.
