Re: Older monitor/newer Display driver

I'll just leave the driver as it is for now @ Windows installed v56.72 .
I have been using the default IGP chipset settings too but now that I
have matching Memory sticks and 512MB's of memory I think I can try to
overclock the IGP . I have the standard MSI cooling fan on the IGP chipset .
The default setting is 66 and I think that means it will make the IGP
FSB speed 122MHZ . The settings for the IGP setup enable let me set them as
high as 120 which makes the IGP speed 240MHz .
I find it difficult to believe people say they get an IGP speed of 385MHz
but they do report so .
I think the board system just cuts out to protect itself if anything goes
wrong so I think it is safe for me to go ahead .

Experimenting can be fun. Personally I think adding a graphics card suited
to your needs/expectations is a better option if you want better
performance than what the onboard video offers.

lines across it and now it doesn't .

As long as you have things moving along in the right direction, that's
good.
