I tried the latest driver from nvidia, the latest driver from xfx, and the driver that came with the disc. All have the same problem. Resolution is the max 1680x1050. I've also tried changing to other resolutions with no success. I've tried all types of videos, DVD DISK, avi files, mpegs, all the same. Really bad pixilating. I also tried watching on other players besides VLC. No luck. I will try everything else before returning the monitor, the monitor looks great for everything except when I play a film. Even the intro to Terminator 2 on the DVD where they show the thx and all that, looks great. Then when it goes to the actual film, things look bad.
Would low power supply cause pixilation in video? I heard you need a 400w power supply to run my video card. Mine might be 250w, or whatever dell installed on dimension 8200's. I just dont want to spend more money on something if that isnt the cause.
