    Hi all,

    I've been playing around with Powerstrip 3.57 and I've found the thread on setting up the Sharps. I will be (Haven't got the cables yet) linking up a Laptop via VGA to the DVI.

    I've gone into Advanced Timings Options to access the Custom Resolutions area but the button is greyed out and cannot select it. I've also tried copying the settings but it doesn't like that.

    The graphics card at the moment will kick out a max of 1600x1200 it says and can be selected.

    Anyone know what I'm doing wrong ? Do I need to register the software ? It says it's a fully working version.

    TIA,

    Richie.

    Sounds like your graphics card chipset is unsupported.

    Powerstrip accepts custom settings only when registered. Found out my self the hard way. After registering my Sharp 32GA3E and Radeon AIW 7500 work perfect at 1360x768.

    cheers

    What graphics card are you using?

    I managed to get powerstrip working without registering it .. but now I don't need it as my nVidia card supports its own custom resolutions!

    That might be the reason. Since it's a 5 year old laptop I'm thinking the graphics card is a little on the weak side. The driver says it's a Trident CyberBlade Ai7.
