New Computer Monitor settings
Old computer (1993 Compaq) that my son-in-law refurbished for me died (hard-drive--blue screen of death)--got 4 years out of it. Son-in-law helped me order a new one off the net. Monitor is a 17" LCD. Computer keeps prompting me to change settings to 1440x900 for best resolution. If I do that then print is too small to read. If I use the zoom feature to make it bigger, then screen widens out and I have to scroll back and forth all the time to read things like this board. I keep the settings at the lowest, (800x600),--print is large, everything contained on screen, no scrolling. Anyway, son-in-law says that if I keep using the low settings, I'll burn up the screen. Any truth to what he's saying?
