OK, I finally found a driver that seems to work. All the way back to July 21, 2009 but all of the text on screen appears to be a little fuzzy. I think it may be because of how small of text is though, because it looks fine when I increase the size in the Control Panel. I have a 20" screen, so did that sound possible?

For that resolution vs. screen size, it makes sense to me. You could try using a lower res if you wanted, although obviously not the one were using.

+1 Petey is spot on.

Ok, well I can deal with a little blurriness. It's not that noticable. Thanks for the help.
