How do I get my nc8430 resolution up to 1680 x 1050?
I asked for a laptop that had a 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) or higher screen resolution. I ended up getting this one, but found that the resolution was only 1280 x 800 (WXGA), not WSXGA+. I looked up on a certain site, and found that someone had pushed up the screen resolution by installing Livna fglrx. I looked this up, but I think it's only available for Linux. I saw little or nothing to do with Windows XP Pro. I have the proper ATI adapter, I think it's the drivers that I'm missing. Does anyone know where to find these drivers? It would be greatly appreciated. :)

If your display is not centered try adjusting your screen resolution. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open them to open the display properties and click the settings tab for screen resolution. Set your resolution up higher. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons, thus the more fits on the screen. Normal resolution is about 1024x768.
Read the manual that came with your device. It should tell you in the manual what the default pin is. You can try 0000, or 9999, or 1111 just for the heck of it...it's usually something like that. (not sure on the number of digits for your device, but I think it would be 4)
The display limit is determined by the LCD design. IN this case, you have an XGA LCD resolution 1024 x 768 pixels. This is a hard wired resolution and can only be changed by exchanging the XGA LCD for a higher resolution one (SXGA or higher, likeky not an available option for an Inspitorn 2200)
Make sure you have the correct driver loaded from the Fujitsu website. Additionally, try removing the Display Adapter from device manager and reboot. This will allow Windows to identify the "new" hardware and attempt to install. If asked, point Windows to the driver files from Fujitsu and that should fix you up :)
I've got one with the same problem. I've been through the model at Lenovo's site, and your best bet is to replace the lcd with what it came with. It's possible an sxga would plug in (there are always extra pins on the motherboard side), but probably wouldn't work. The cable is almost as much as the lcd.
