I'm currently in the thought of getting a new laptop. First off, my current laptop has issues, but I guess that is what I get for paying $400 for one on eBay. It was fine for the first months.
One issue I am concerned with is setting up my new LCD monitor. After continually trying to get the picture to look good, I just cant seem to get it just right. The main thing is when I set my settings to the 'recommended resolution' of 1440x900 I get a 'out of range' error message, and the monitor goes to sleep. The monitor is also in sleep during windows updates / shutdown screen, and during the bootup.
I've already been through a couple of troubleshooting and recommendations to get the monitor right, but the fact is I'm probably getting a new laptop anywase. Just how good are laptops with monitors? Or is it just my laptop? Now I'm scared to death that my picture will not look as good (or close to) the picture I get on my laptop screen. Before I was sure that my chosen monitor would look just as terrific connected to my laptop, but then I get 'orange
' colored folders and harsh edges around pictures.
