    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.

  3. 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,
