    I just purchased a new desktop with a DVD player. The Graphics card is a32MB ATI Rage Ultra Graphics 4X AGP. My monitor is an old Nokia 447a. When I hit "Play Movie" I get and error message, "change resolution or color depth". I call the desktop tech support but none of the steps they asked me to do worked. Now they are saying the monitor may not be able to handle it. I called viewsonic/Nokia and they gave me a half baked "yea it's probably the monitor." The colors are still great on this monitor so before I go buy another one has anyone run into this or have had this expierience??
    Thanks
    Much

    Thanks for the response. Haven't tried you suggestion, will tonight. Swaped out monitors, wasn't the problem. Dell sent me a driver to download will try that tonight also. What is Fusionsoft DVD player? IS it downloadable software to make my DVD hard ware run??
