The thing about the Dell is:
a) every time I take it apart I manage to lose at least 1 screw
b) it always seems to come apart in more bits each time.
Powered up, saw screen come alive with BIOS display...Windows logon...looking good....login...1600x1200 display of desktop....we have ignition...start Rome:Total War...AAARRRGGGH!
Why does the display only occupy half the screen? i.e. 1024x768 occupying 1024x768 pixels of a 1600x1200 display. Frantic Googling...Device driver fiddle required to use new drivers with special .INF file. Reboot... start Rome:Total War again, breath sigh of relief. Exit and start Medieval 2:Total War demo, find it works and not even on the lowest graphics performance. Wet myself with pleasure (metaphorically). Can ask for full game for Christmas now.
Also coming to a desktop near me: Samsung 19" LCD TV. Well it was, until it was robbed by Mrs Mouse and the MiniMice, who've told me to go buy another one. That Dell 2007 24" monitor looks nice, but a bit expensive, need to find a way to get one cheap, so shall look in the Dell seconds.
Seems to be raining technology in the Mouse household at the moment. Looking for a suitable set of components for a media box, so suggestions welcome. If anyone has built a MythTV box, would like to hear.
