This looked to be the exact same as mine, so I went ahead and ordered it. I followed a tutorial for installing it exactly as it showed, everything went smoothly and it powered on first try. However, I immediately noticed that a portion of the bottom of my screen was cut off. Accessing display options of the control panel confirmed my fears: my native resolution is 1024x600, and the replacement is 1024x768.
I've searched everywhere for some sort of brute force fix for this problem. Every solution I find seems to have good results in Windows 7, but as I'm running XP, nothing seems to be working. Editing registry values for Default X/Y resolution did nothing, and EDID overrides do nothing in XP. Anybody have any ideas here? I'm getting desperate.
SIDE NOTE: It was my intention to install Ubuntu on this machine as soon as I got the screen working again. Now that this is happening, I'm hesitant because I'm less familiar with it than Windows. However, if anybody knows of anything that is Linux specific, I'm all ears.
