im trying to get my new LG 21.5" lcd screen to work with my toshiba laptop right now it looks streched from left to right. the LG screen says to switch to 1920x1080 res for best picture, but when i try to switch to something higher then 1280x1024 the screen goes black and a messege pops up saying "D-SUB out of range 81khz / 60hz" what does this mean??

It means you can't do what you're trying to do.

If you got a CD with the LG display install the drivers and that should stop you from selecting settings that the monitor can't display.

thats the first thing i did but didn't help the max res on the LG screem is 1920x1080 so the monitor should be able to display that setting i think it's something with my laptop. but i've tried updating the video drivers and everything but still no luck.

ok seems like i got it fixed i updated the bios on my laptop and i was able to select the right resolution and it works fine im thinking of going back to a 20" the 21.5" i have now seems a little to big for me and with this resolution everything on the desktop seems "tiny" so im wondering if i get the LG 20" the max screen resolution is 1600x900 but i don't see that specific res on the list under screen resoluition. when i get the new screen and install the driver would it then show up?

I'm not sure why the BIOS would have anything to do with that, but it is good you got it working.

There are settings to display things like icons and text at larger sizes.

When using ANY LCD display it is always best to run it at the native resolution. No other resolution will look as sharp.

The resolution you need may or may not be available. Try updating the video drivers for your chip set. The newest drivers will be the most likely to have that resolution as an option.

Many computer displays use 16:10 ratio. The display you are using may be designed to be used for movie/TV viewing because it is 16:9 ratio.

Agreed. You should run at the native resolution, then just increase the font & icon size. Try changing the DPI setting to 'large'. And I also agree that when it comes to wide screen, 16:10 is preferrable. 1920x1080 = 16:9.
