Problem with 9700pro and ViewSonic E92f+

Hey all!

I have a PowerColor Radeon9700 card and a VeiwSonic E92f+ monitor. The
problem is that the horizontal width is really messed up. The monitor (AND
ati display control thingie) is set to the smallest size available. I run
1280x1024 and it's at the same time the only resolution I'm able to get an
"ok" picture (width). I also have to press the apply button in Direct3D 3
TIMES to get it right whenever the resolution has changed eg. after a game,
after startup.

This is really frustrating. In games I can't see the whole picture because
of insufficient width and I'm really getting tired of doing the "apply"
thing 3 times after each gaming session. Anyone got an idea?

make sure the ACTUAL monitor driver is being used. A plug and play driver
probably won't cut it. I know that when I first got my viewsonic monitor, I
had trouble installing the driver. So I went to the website and got a
package of driver, that did the trick.

you are using the monitor's "auto" resize - auto settings - auto adjust auto auto aren't
you ?

anyway turn on your monitors "auto" functions from the monitors control panel up there on
the monitor - not in your PC. then the viewsonics there should just be happy happy and
resize everytime for you when the res changes.

oh yeah, as the man says - insure you have the correct monitor driver in your windows
control panel display..

hope this help,
