    Hi, I've previously owned a 12" iBook G4 1.07GHz, and had a resolution of 1024 X 768 on my 17" DELL P780 display. Now I have a 1.33GHz G4 iBook. Same size. Wouldn't go past 800 X 600, and is annoying as F*CK!!! PLEASE HELP! I tried restarting, Display Preferences, EVERYTHING!!! :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    i had the exact same problem a while back. To find a solution i searched and searched google for ages and in the end i had to delete a file/folder, reboot and then all was good.

    Problem: can't remember for the life of me what file/folder was.

    i think it could be System>Library>MonitorPanels>AppleDisplay.monitorPanels but not 100% on this

    What i would do is copy that to your desktop, rename it (remembering the old name). Delete the original (@ System>Library>MonitorPanels>AppleDisplay.monitorPanels) then reboot. If it works os x will create a new one on start up, if it doesn't change the name of the original one back to AppleDisplay.monitorPanels and copy it back to System>Library>MonitorPanels

    Good Luck :D
