I dont get 856x480 and 1280x720 to work properly on my Radeon 9000pro card. I hade an old Geforse256 card before with no problem at all, with somewath tall and thin ikons as it should bee when displaying a 16:9 resolution on a 4:3 monitor. The problem with the Radeon card is that when switching to 856x480 the image go very big and when I drag the mouse to the edge of the screen the image goes away ( the image is mutch bigger than the monitorscreen so it dosent fit). It´s the same problem with 1280x720, what is wrong?

try that little tweaker for radeon:
http://www.rage3d.com/r3dtweak/

I'm using it with my radeon 9000pro and Panny PTAE100, and it is great. I don't have to use powerstrip for these resolutions - 856x480 or 1280x720. After installing it, in custom display modes check the desired resolutions and restart the computer.

BTW - I have XP pro installed.

I have installed Rage3D Tweaker and when I look in the Custom Display Modes there is already 856x480, 1072x600 and 1280x720 in there( light green). Is it because I already have made them in PowerStrip? After reboot I go in to the desktop list to switch to one of the custom resolution comes the problem, there is only Standard Modes in the list! Whats wrong?
:confused: :(

Yes it's true.

You have to change the resolution using Rage3d tweaker icon - right click - rage3d. You have the icon in the windows bar where the clock is placed.

I hope it helps.

Yes I mean that when I dont find any custom resolutions! I dont have any custom resolutions in the list in 3dtweaker. Nothing happens if I rightclick on one of the green dots in the customresolutionlist, so I dont think that ex. 856x480 is activated att all. Was your customresolutions green from the beginning or did you check them yourself?

did you installed the newest drivers (Catalyst 2.4)? Maybe it helps. Rage3D needs Catalyst drivers.

If I run it in only 16-bit color it works, why? As soon as I change to 32-bits of color the problem comes bak. I have a Pentium III 700 processor and use ME, could that have anything to do with the problem. The strange thing is that I dont have any problem with my old Geforce256 board.....

I had similar problem when I worked in Win98se, but the problem disappeared when I installed the WinXP pro. This is the reason I changed the system. Maybe this is a problem connected with the drivers - my guess.

OK, I start to think the same! Do you think there is an advantage in 32-bits color when you watching a DVD, today I test both Austin Powers and Gladiator on my Panasonic PT-AE100E and both looks greate! Have somewon tested the same, 16 against 32-bits color when watching a DVD? I think it sounds stupid that 16-bit should look the same as 32-bit but now am not shour.
Do I need to start from the beginning to install XP, I think so but I´m not 100%.
