Just picked up my HP w1907 19" LCD monitor. Looks great, speakers are hidden, glossy! Finally have a desk and a keyboard and mouse, so I'm using my laptop like a desktop. Great I thought!
After setting up my monitor, it gives me a 'Signal out of Range' error message when I set it to the recommended ratio of 1440x900; then the monitor goes into sleep mode. Currently (now) I am running 1280x800, and just about everything looks fine (text, start button is where it should be...), except the colors. My yellowes
seem more closer to orange
. There also seems to be a lot of jaggy
edges around small gif icons, and a number of photos don't seem as nice as they are on my laptops screen.
Without dragging on, I'm convinced that my monitor doesn't look as well as it should. Technically, I shouldn't really have to calibrate the picture just to make it look 'nice'; it should already set up that way in 'auto configuration'. And if my monitor is recommended at 1440x900 resolution, then why do I get a 'out of range' error?
The final question, am I just picky? All the reviews on the w1907 are good, so I'm convinced there is something wrong. Could it be that I should run it with a DVI connection instead of VGA? However, my laptop only has a VGA connection.
I only wish I could show you how my picture looked
