Hy,

I receive my nez laptop 2 days ago and evrything is wonderfull in it...wide screen ati 9600 radeon turbo pro 128 ddr

the problem is that the correct resolution for it is the 1600/1200.
noz you'll say its perfect...the problem is that pics in website do not show correctly...
does anyone have a solution other that diminushing the size of the display?
or is it just cause webs are optimized for 800/600 or 1024/768 resolutions?
thx

a widescreen is using 1600x1200? :scratchhead:

as for the question, I'm not really sure what you are saying is happening
to the images. Can you explain a little more?

Also, please change your footer image to one less than 6kb so you

1600x1200 is an awfully high resolution for a 15.4" screen. After doing a search, I've found that that screen has an aspect ratio of 16:10. 1600x1200 is 4:3. That would certainly make things look strange.

Have you tried contacting dell?

You might try updating your video drivers. Does it use ATI or Nvidia?

Are you able to adjust the resolution to 1280x800, 1680x1050, or 1920x1200? Each of those have an aspect ratio of 16:10.

Hy again,

wlel actually, in the doc...the 1600*1200 is the most optimized resolution for this type of screen...

Actually it might be called 15.4 inch cause it has the same height but the width is bigger (almost the same as my 17 inch monitor)...better for DVDs.
As for the Video card... I have and ATI RADEON 9600 turbo pro 128

now when i set it to a lower resolution...it tells me that LCD screen have specific type of optimized resolution for them, changing it might reduce quality...the images appear correct...

Sorry. I overlooked you mentioning the ATI card in your original post.

I'm not sure what to suggest really. If your settings are optimized for DVD playback, those same settings may not be the best for the desktop.

Check out this thread: http://www.whatlaptop.co.uk/forum/topic ... IC_ID=8117

There's a long discussion about the 8600. You might find a solution there or post your own question.

Good luck.
