    I searched the forums and couldn't find this topic posted...I recently installed Windows XP for some programs I need to run, and for some reason, when I go in to adjust the display resolution, the max that I can set it to is 1024x768. My native resolution that I'm running on now is 1280x800, and the difference is extremely noticable-everything is fuzzy and stretched when running XP. Anyone have this problem/know what can be done to fix it? It's XP SP3 version, by the way. Thanks in advance!

    Make sure you install the drivers from the MacBook CD; sounds like you haven't installed graphics drivers yet.

    not sure what you mean by the "macbook cd." Are you talking about the leopard install disc? Or are you talking about the XP disc I used to install Windows?

    none taken, thanks for the link. I'll install it when I get home and see how that works but that seems to be the problem, I didn't know you had to do anything after installing windows (my ignorance).
