I still have my first display which is a 15 inch HP LCD (when I bought it I wasn't worried about resolution) and I'm a bit disappointed that it will not go to a bigger resolution than 1024 x 768. On my PC I can hook it up and I will get an option to go bigger than what my monitor will take and it will look just fine until the monitor realizes it's bigger than it's supposed to be and cuts off. My ibook doesn't give me the choice to do this though which is what I'm using it for. Now I also have a 15 inch CRT and it can go to a way bigger resolution than my LCD which I spent a couple hundred bucks on. I've also seen 42 inch sony displays that only get a max res of that similar to 800 x 600. So I was just wondering what gives a display it's max resolution and is it possible to override my monitor making it accept a bigger resolution as when I choose the option on my PC it is just fine until the monitor realizes and shuts off.
