    Re:Monitor Frequency

    Well unless I am mistaken, a 14" monitor is usually 800x600. So choose a generic monitor that does that resolution, no higher.

    IIRC, the poper entry would be something akin to Generic SVGA 800x600 @ 70Hz

    That because Windows think it knows better than you and wont' give you any option. Even if you have non-PnP monitor, it will just let you take default value. On the other hand, Linux thinks you knows better and let you choose it. Like we said, you can always choose Generic value but it always leave YOU in control.

    Plus, monitor MFGs will furnish their monitor specs to Microsoft and it will update their database value. But many monitors I have, I had to run MFGs' INF file to get the right value.

    There is nothing written on the monitor anywhere.[/quote]
    It's by LAW that they have to publish those information. I've never heard of "Vintron" so I won't know. But if you can take digital photo of the back of the monitor, we may be able to tell where to look for it. Or if you bought your monitor "used", then someone could have taken out. No idea. So you will be good with generic value. For a 14" monitor, there is little to gain even if you have specific value (by comparison to LCDs with DVI).
