Fixed aspect ratio... monitor upgrade needed?

Recommended Posts



I have a HP Compaq LE1711 my employer was throwing out plugged into the DVI port of my GeForce 7650 card through Nvidia's mini VGA-DVI adaptor. The combination means that I'm stuck with a 1:1.25 aspect ratio as there's no facility for altering it built into the monitor and the option doesn't appear in the screen resolution etc tab of Nvidia control panel.


It's not a great problem for FS9 - it just necessitates resizing of 2d panels; the VCs are all ok. It is a problem for my golden oldie, Flight Unlimited 3 which itself has a fixed 1:1.33 aspect ratio (1024 × 768 maximum) and only operates in full screen mode.


A couple of frustrating Google searches suggest either Nvidia removed the facility from the control panel, or it's not available for VGA monitors, or it's a design flaw of that particular monitor, or... or... or...


Assuming budget constraints prevent me changing my graphics card, is there a monitor available that either magically allows the facility to appear in Nvidia's control panel, or has aspect ratio .control in its own menu? Please offer me help. Or at least hope.
