Windows 7: Gateway Display Problems @ 1920 x 1080.

Gateway Display Problems @ 1920 x 1080.

Hi guys, I have a little netbook, a Gateway LT Series. 2 GB RAM, and an Intel 3100 GMA Graphic Cards. Plus a Samsung SyncMaster 2494 @ FHD.

The problem is the following: I get to see how the picture on my monitor (the Samsung's) gets distorted at any resolution, except when is as low as 800 x 600.

When I talk about distorted I mean, that image shakes badly giving some white and black strips all over the screen.

How I don't get the image distorted:
- When I unisntall the graphic card drivers, and only install the VGA one (Giving me at top, 1600 x 1200 res.)
- When I do an extended display, (It doesn't matter which monitor I chose as primarly).

What can actually be the problem?
I've re-installed the drivers with the Intel's and Gateway's (which both are the same), and get the same result.

Thanks for the help.

P.S: It is not the cable, since I've tried with my Xbox 360 using the VGA via the same cable and it worked perfectly.... IMO it seems that the Video Card is giving problems...

There are many LT series.

You can try using the Intel driver update utility:

1920 x 1080 vs 1900 x 1200 lcd
I am looking for a new 24" lcd monitor. I never watch DVD or Blu Ray on my computer. Is there any advantages to having the 1920x1080 over the 1900x1200 standard for computing and photography work? I currently use 1900x1200 and have been very satisfied with it so far. Many thanks,
