What about the frequency? Is the 19" expecting 60hz? Anything outside what the monitor is optimized for can cause the problems you're seeing.
Mark, thank you for your response and also thank you for confirming what I had a feeling was the case. If my 17" LCD runs at 1280 x 1024 and I try to run a 19" LCD at the resolution the math just does not work. I have a screen that is two inches larger but runs the same resolution?? I think I have my answer but thanks for your input. I have seen high end 19" LCD's running at higher resolutions and I am sure they work well but they also cost a lot more and at the moment I don't have that kind of money to sink into a monitor so I will stick with my trusty 17" LCD for the time being.
I am not a big fan of widescreen monitors and since I do not (and will not if I can help it) run Windows Vista, I see no need at all for a widescreen monitor.
Again, thanks for your help and keep shooting.
