    I have a Liteon flatpanel H15ANC. In Windows and all other programs im using 1024x786 @ 75 hz, But the problem is that when i want to play a game. No game will allow me to play at 1024x786 and they all say that 848x??? is my highest possible resolution.
    So my games look really ugly and go f*cking slow...

    Please help.... :(

    lol :D
    doesn't look like a good solution to me. Gonna wait for other suggestions. And XP Anuser I'm gonna try to let my flatpanel work with the standard plug and play driver from XP, maybe that will work. Never tried that.

    the display works perfect in windows.

    the resolution problem is fixed. I had to use the normal plug&play driver from xp and not a special driver designed for my flatpanel :S

    The problem thats still there is that when i launch a game it minimize itself to the taskbar and wont maximize anymore. And 1 game says that i dont have a directx input device. And the directx test fails because it says the test is canceled because you pressed a button. But i didnt!!!

    Vidcard: Geforce 2 mx440
    Hope you can help me...

    XP Abuser im using DX 8.1 im using the latest vidcard drivers 40.71 So thats not it :(

    To put a pic in your sig:
    upload your picture to a web location.
    put that location between tags.

    And Scottish i think your right :( Flatpanels suck for games but i dont want to go back to my old 15 inch crt monitor

    yeah fixed all my problems. The resolution problem was fixed when i used the standard plug and play driver from xp and the minimzing to dekstop was fixed by reinstalling directX. Finally i can play my games again. :)
