    Hi, I have a Samsung SyncMaster 2033sw monitor [20 inch] which supports 1600x900 resolution. But my display driver [Via K8M800 - S3G Unichrome Pro IGP] in WinXp shows maximum of 1440x900 resolution, which is not suitable for screen.

    I use Linux Mint in dual boot and it supports 1600x900 with Virtual Resolution(as it says).It works without any hassle, and the display looks great.

    But how can i set it in WinXP? I tried updating drivers, but all in vain.
    So is there any way to do it, please help. Thanks is advance.

    Well i use 1280x720 Resolution [16:9] which is most suitable after 1600x900.
    At 1440x900, the screen looks very bad.

    One more, question.
    Can i clean my LCD panel with a soft, a little wet cloth?
    Will it cause any harm?

    I do the same quite often. I never see any harm to my tft...
    just make sure not to use cloth with excess of water...
