    Hi,
    I have just connected my pc to my panny plasma running windows xp, and i believe there is an option somewhere within xp to set screen at widescreen and improve text quality?
    cant find this anywhere..

    Have you tried looking for the driver for your screen?

    If not, try using the Sony one think it is GDM-W900. If you then set the pixel size and refresh rate to your plasma, you should have it cracked.

    Unless there is a better alternative out there.......................

    Win XP has the drive already. Just right click on the screen, properties, settings tab, advanced, monitor, properties, select driver tab, update driver, (advanced) Don't search, Un-tick Show Compatible Drivers, select Sony from the list then find the 900 driver.

    If the monitor is set as the widescreen (actual pic of display should look 16x9) then just match the res from your graphic card with that of the monitor.

    If there is not one try creating one with powerstrip.
