The title explains most of it. My hard drive crashed on my one pc so I changed to windows 7. In windows XP 1080p to my samsung HDTV via HDMI looked terrible for text but great for video so I stayed with VGA. I had no problems with my radeon 4550 running 1920x1080 60Hz through XP and used that for years. Now with windows 7 1080p via HDMI looks better than it did with windows xp but text still was not clear. I decided to stick with VGA. I cannot get VGA to go above 1360x768 in windows 7. When I set it to 1920x1080 my TV says "Not Supported Mode" which according to the user manual means its not getting an accepted resolution or frequency input. I have it set to 60Hz 1920x1080 the exact same as worked in windows XP. Maybe there is some other small setting hidden away in a menu somewhere that would fix this? If not I get to format my drive and go back to good old XP I guess. Hooray for new "better?" operating systems.
