    I don't have a Gateway, but the same at my Thinkpad x61t. Max resolution is 1400x1050 just as the display's native.

    Thought that MaxiVista is only for remote display

    What... but the Intel 945GM Express Chip can handle 1600x1200 on the Tablet.

    Just to clarify what I am saying above in my post 15 of this thread...
    The Intel 945GM can handle a 1600x1200 screen size.

    It is the screen itself though that will determine what resolution you can use the Tablet to fit the 'entire' screen size to.

    I.E. the XGA has a resolution of 1280x768 but if you wish to go higher to 1600x1200 you can...... the only downside being you end up having to scroll across to the right to see the end of the screen.

    P8RSON, could you post a screenshot of your screen options showing 1600x1200? Maybe you attach an external high res monitor and then switch to mirror mode to get this option for your low res TFT? :confused:

    This is the screen set at 1600x1200 using scroll mode to get to the right-hand side of the screen.

    The icons you see running down on the right of the picture is where the XGA screen 1024x768 displays the normal right-end of the screen.

    Thanks P8RSON,
    Found the option:
    go to "extended"/"Monitor" and uncheck "don't show unsupported modes". Then you get all the upper resolutions. If you select those, you automatically get into "scroll mode" by hovering the pen towards the edges.

    Edit: Oh, just noticed that this only works on my other laptop but not on the x61t where it is greyed out.
