    Best settings to use for BENQ GL2440HM

    blueflash

      I have just purchased a Benq GL2440HM LED monitor for use with a Dell XP SP3 PC.

       

      Could someone advise me please what the best settings/driver to use for this monitor?

       

      I have the monitor set at present for 1280x768 but this gives a rather poor display. Other settings give a crisper display but the aspect ratio is lost and the display has a squashed appearance. Is there anything I can do to get the best out of the monitor?

       

      The report below details what I currently have.

       

      Thanks

      Chris
