    Default 9800GT resolution chg blue screen

    Got my hackintosh up and running, everything seems to work fine except trying to change resolution for my (an original Apple/trinitron 21") VGA monitor. The system shows that it recognizes the 9800 GT I have installed. But, everytime I try to change from the default 800 x 600 resolution to ANYTHING else, I get the blue screen and everything is locked up. I DID go back and update the .plist with the required codes, but no help. Also dual booting successfully with Win 7, no issues with playing with the video resolution on that OS.

    thanks! ~Rob

    Default CRT vs. LCD

    I didn't see that particular guide before, I'll look through it for sure. What I am seeing after further investigation, is that as long as the software can 'see; and identify the display (has NO problem with LCD's), I have full resolution control. It does not fully recognize ANY CRT's plugged into the card via the VGA adapter. I tried three different CRT's and each was given ONE resolution choice. e.g. my 21 inch Viewsonic P815 was given 1025 x 768, my original APPLE (Sony Trinitron) 20" stuck at 800 x 600, and another 17" Viewsonic got 1152 x 864. VERY weird! When 'forced' to a higher resolution for 'startup' screen with ktext, it WILL display the higher resolution, but then default back for the actual background.

    However, if I plug a DVI equipped LCD in, I have all options up to the highest native resolution of the display. I prefer the CRT's for photo-editting, so I am not sure at this point what I will do. Anyone else have CRT resolution issues? I hadn't budgeted for a $1000 + high quality graphics LCD monitor (that still can't meet the specs of the CRT for photo-editting).
