Acer flat panel monitor with dell dimension 4600 desktop, i am having a resolution problem. Icons are blurry, or fuzzy. the computer does not have a DVI port to connect to the monitor. I have used only VGA...


the issue is most likely the resolution you set the panel to. also make sure you select a generic flat panel driver under the Display properties EXP: if your panel is a 17" Panel chosse 1a driver with a max resolution of 1024X768 @ 60hz to start and go on from there you will solve it.. let me know if you need more help..

Computer to tv


you'll need a video card that has an S-Video out port and a TV that has S-Video in. Generally, adapters and converters don't work well.

Once connected with an S-Video cable, you should be good to go.
