Hi I have a couple of IT questions,

1. What is the difference between the power save settings in a M/board's bios and Windows, Does one override the other.

2. What is a monitors native mode.

Any thoughts welcome.

THe power save settings in the BIOS over ride the OS, and the monitors native mode is the resolution it best runs at.

I have a 24" monitor, and its native resolution is 1920x1200.
