Hi All,

Here's my situation: I cannot change my monitor's resolution to 1024X768 - I need to do this so I can use my new Adobe InDesign Program, I cannot install if the settings are not changed. When I goto Display in control panel and switch it to the necessary res it goes black, then reads "Out of Scan Range", then returns to the previous setting. I have verified that my lcd can run at higher res. Going to the advanced menu within display does not help as the properties button is greyed out. The computer does not seem to recognize that I even have a monitor...it's not in device manager either. More info - I trolled the forums for info and tried to solve it myself before posting to no avail. I have a Sony PCV RX760 2.2GHZ running Windows XP SP2 monitor came with the orig. computer, its a Sony S51 LCD 15 inch. So I went to the VAIO support site and downloaded the drivers for both my monitor and video card. I even re-installed windows xp (prob not necessary) and the monitor still does not show up nor can i change the resoultion. I'm running out of idea and I want to use my InDesign!!! Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

Is this the driver you downloaded?

Don't know if it's relevant. Did you also see the update for using Adobe?

Thanks for the response. That was the driver I download along with the one for the monitor. I did not see that update you linked, I am not sure if it will resolve my issue but worth a try! Thanks.
