Have you tried reinstalling firefox and thunderbird?

You mention you installed google earth which i think is a 3d app . Have you tried running any other windowed and/or fullscreen 3d applications? for troubleshooting?

I have not had a problem with my computer like the one you describe.

-I do however have a problem that my laptopscreen cannot stretch the image more than the actual resolution, meaning, if I run an app in 1024x768 I will see this image as a cutout in my laptop screen displaying the actual resolution pixel by pixel, a smaller image than the fullscreen. This is not a priority concern for me because I usually hook up my acer to an ext. screen which stretch the image for the computer.

As for the driver you mention I don't know.

If you go to display settings in w7 and click advanced options and open the display tab, does it say generic pnp monitor?

cheers and good luck.

Re your question about Google Earth and other 3D apps - the answer is no. I will install more apps this weekend to see what happens.

Re display settings - it correctly says I have an ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 adapter but says the monitor is Generic PnP.

Incidently, those information windows are affected by this problem I have. The text in the top bar - e.g. 'Generic PnP Monitor Properties' - is sharp. Everything below that is enlarged and not sharp. I've noticed this effect elsewhere in dialogue/information windows.

Incidentally if there seems to be a time disconnect between my postings and others in this thread, it’s because I live in the southern hemisphere (NZ).

Cheers - off to work

Bit of a disaster really...

I may yet be forced to go back to XP on my Acer 6460. I haven't been able so far to resolve the issue with the 9.3 driver, which, though it does recognise my video adapter, gives me a mixture of resolutions: the correct resolution of 1680 x 1050 for most stuff that is effectively vector graphics, and 800x600 or less on icons and text that are bitmaps. All on the same 1680 x 1050 page!

Kokosbolle asked if I had reinstalled Fox and Thunderbird and what was the result. It didn't fix anything.

Here's what I have installed so far:

Google Earth: effectively useless. A warning to that effect came up during installation, when it said the resolution was too low.
MS Office 2003:
perfect (IE8 is also OK)
Skype: perfect
Photoshop: not good. All the palettes, toolboxes etc are bitmap graphics and all are enlarged and a bit fuzzy. This means my screen real estate is severely restricted.
InDesign: hopeless. It refuses to install at all because it says it needs a minimum of 1024x768. (I though I was giving it 1680 x 1050!)
Ziepod: useable, but text enlarged and fuzzy
Mailwasher Pro: ditto.

It all seems very weird. Kokosbolle and Woger both have similar, though not identical Acer Travelmates to me, and while the 9.3 driver hasn't made their displays perfect, I gather the imperfections can be lived with. I'd try to put up with the situation too, if it weren't for the inability to install InDesign at all. I need that professionally, so it's a gamebreaker.

If I've exhausted the knowledge of you guys on this issue, do you you have any suggestions where I can go for more information?

Later...I installed the later 9-11_legacy_vista32-64_dd_ccc driver from the AMD legacy drivers website, according to separate instructions I'd seen at the MS Techforum. (Hibernate issue - cause by ATI Radeon X1200 Series (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM) driver) That made no difference at all. But I didn't run Mobility Modder over it first, suspecting that that would have no effect. The sequence of this install, provided by Peter Creer on the Techforum, was:

Hello all.
First post here.
I just HAD to regoster for this thread becuase I am experiencing exactly the same problems as others here, but I have NOT been able to find a fix.
Here we go:
Just updated to Windows 7 32bit.
I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 with the X1300 Graphics Card.
Like everyone else, I cannot get it to work.
I have spend about 8 hours today trying to get it working - no luck.
As with others, Windows 7 installs a driver via Upate that says it is the X1300 - great.
BUT, the resolution is nor right. The screen is not proportional on any of the setting (the max of which is 1024x768).
I can get the Aero effects working, which is cool but the resolution is SSSOOO low compared to what I had in XP.
When I try to follow the directions left in the thread regarding using Catalyst 9.3 Vista 32bit, and try to install the driver, I get the message that "The specified service has been marked for deletion."
So now I am stuck with terrible resolution that is stretched and I just CANNOT get it fixed.
When I choose Standard VGA Graphics, I get a better resolution (but it is still not proportional) but no Aero etc.
I don't care about CCC, I just want the 1650x1080 resolution back again (like I had in X) with Aero effects in 7.
What can I do???
Any help would be GREAT!
Thanks

Have you tried installing the driver using the ATI Mobility Modder to tweak the 9.3 driver? Both Kokosbolle and Woger have done it and got the correct pixel proportions after those proportions were not available to them initially. Same for me, though I have had other problems since I nominally got my correct 1680 x 1050. But for the others it's been largely successful.

I found their instructions for using Mobility Modder easy to follow.

Good luck!

Yeah, on my part it would appear so. Sorry! I don't know about this.

maybe some of the "big guns" on this page could help if they read this.

jmacg,
Yeah. I have tried that.
I have tried using the modder to mod all of the drivers up to 9.3 but they all do exactly the same thing. Either it installs the driver when I let the program do it automatically (by just going through the setup) then I am stuck with only 4 choices for resolution, none of which have the correct proportions.
Or, if I choose to install by using Device Driver then manually selecting the .inf windows tells me that "Windows found the files but they were not able to be installed. The files have been marked for delete."
Or, if I let Windows Update install the driver, it says it is the X1300 but the resolution again is not right, and also the hardware acceleration does not work so no Aero etc. Aleso, letting Windows install is, when I install CCC it says that no X1300 device has been detected so I can't use CCC to control the resolution (which I thought may have helped).
I have Windows 7 32bit. Does that make a difference? Would installing 64bit help?
How did you get it to work so you got the 1650x1080 resolution?
What steps did you take?
Thanks

I have 32bit too.

As far as making the correct resolution (of 1680 x 1050, not the 1650x1080 you mention) available, I might be in a slightly different situation, in that the ATI card was not seen from the start, and only a generic driver was installed. Woger had the same experience.

For both of us, the solution was to follow instructions on this thread - install the 9.3 driver to C:\ATI, but stop the process before the full installation took place. Then run Mobility Modder in the appropriate place in C:\ATI, then run the setup.

After that, the X1300 adapter was recognised and the installation defaulted to the correct resolution for my screen.

In my case, as you will have read, things were still a shambles.

Something I haven't done, but which I intend to try next, is to do a new install, first cleaning things up with the GuruE3D Driver Sweeper. And I'll use the 9.11 driver, which I moved on to next. (I found it didn't make things any different. But I didn't apply either Driver Sweeper or Mobility Modder at the time. I just used the standard update driver facility.)

jmacg,
Which version of the driver do you have installed in your Device Manager?
When you downloaded the 9.3 and installed via Device manager, mine pops up with 4 or 5 different devices - one Standard VGA, and 3 or 4 X1300 with different driver numbers.
What version did you install that worked?
This is really beginning to irritate me now.
I have uninstalled all the drivers.
Ran the Driver Sweeper.
restarted.
Unpacked the 9.3 Installer, then canceled it.
Ran the Modder Tool.
Then Installed via Device Manager.
Same thing everytime now - the driver installes and i have Aero effects, but the max resolution I can get is 1024x768 which is 1) too small and 2) not proportional.

OH MY GOD!
I feel like SUCH an idiot.
So I am finally able to get CCC installed with the driver also - same issue.
Then I think to myself "It is as if it thinks my laptop is plugged into an external display, and it is reporting the resolution for THAT display."
So I think to myself "I wonder if my laptop is somehow in Presentation mode?" So I hit Fn+F8 and low and behold that was the problem all along. My laptop was in the external monitor mode and that's why it was reporting the low, strange resolution.
I CANNOT believe that is what wasted 8 hours of my life yesterday and today.
Thanks for all the help - I really appreciate it.
I still can't believe it!
