    Hey everyone,

    Just a quick troubleshooting question.

    I have been using a 20" Acer monitor as an external display with my Macbook Core Duo 1.83. For the last 12 months it was working great;

    BUT, I just turned the computer on and in the displays pane I can only increase the resolution to 1600x1200 now, so the screen looks stretched.

    Does anyone know how this problem can be fixed?


    Edit: I was just looking at my iStat Pro and noticed that 1.34gb of the RAM is 'inactive', does this have anything to do with the resolution limit?

    I understand that there are a lot of threads on MR so I just wanted to bump this up to see if any new users have any idea how to fix this.
