    I just got and installed a new PnP LCD monitor on my Win 98 machine. Upon initial install, everything was fine, but after the first boot of the system, the display got changed. I went through the settings and two things that I noticed are that I no longer have the range of adjustments that I did with my old CRT monitor. I can now only adjust up to 1024x768 resolution, and I can only either set my refresh rate to 60hz or "Optimal", which is no good in my case (I need it set to 72hz).

    I know that this typically is related to drivers, but I am running the most current Windows driver for it. I have tried loading in the drivers (and controls) from my graphic card (nVidia TNT 32MB), but that didn't help those adjustments, and actually made thigs worse (example being the montior would not power down, suspend, with the PC).

    Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    LCD monitors DON"T have the choices you get with a CRT. That's why CRT monitors still rule for anything except just plain word processing or Internet surfing.
