After taking advice I have purchased a new TFT monitor and am very happy with it.
The only snag I have found (to date) is that having changed the monitor display setting to the optimum setting required/advised of 1280x1024 as advised some websites only seem to appear in part of the screen i.e. do not fill the screen.
Is there anything I can or should do on such websites.
PS/ PC Advisor does fill the screen so I am left wondering if it is a setting on the webiste?
Your resolution is correct for a 17" - I have a 19" which also operates at 1280x1024 but my last 17" was the same - and I have no trouble with PCA and others filling my screen. What happens when you press the fullscreen icon at top right, and what happens if you hit F11? I'm sure it is your browser's settings that are causing your problem.
The correct resolution for a 17" TFT is 1280 X 1024. If your's is a 15" then the resolution would probably be lower - check your manual. Also check that you have set the the correct refresh rate - normally 60 hertz. Again check your manual.
If on the other hand yours is a 19", then the resolution would be set higher than the figure stated above.
I think you'll find that most 19" TFTs come in at the same native resolution as a 17". As you say, 15" models are 1024x768. I'm wondering if MAJ has something different as if you come away from the native resolution then image quality is bound to deteriorate.
Mine is a 17" TFT HP Pavilion, PA28, I have it set at 1024 x 768. I'm not sure what the recommended resolution is on this TFT, I have set it for comfortable viewing (for me anyway). The refresh rate is 60 Hertz. The display is crystal clear and sharp, I don't play computer games though, so maybe it isn't set correctly for those. Having said that, my eyesight is perfect, I have never worn glasses, but a high resolution of 1280 X 1024 would certainly have me straining aftr a while.
