Hello again;I honestly don't no much about computers; i have a emachines old version i can see it uses a grafics by envidia,and i see AMD Athlon 64, and it is a microsoft windows xp.In the technical part I honestly
cant say much.I just love linux programs ihave nadia installed in my other pc no problem with grafic.
but when i installed the mint xfce debian version all this problem came with the package.
I have a dell monitor 23" i got it cos of poor eye sight,in the monitor reference i have the following resolution 1920x1080,1280x1024,1152x864,1024x768,800x600,640x480,
at this moment i am using the Resolution:1152x864 in Refresh:75Hz in Rotation:Normal
cos the default of 1920x1080 the letters are extra small an icons and so on....
well my friends that is all i can honestly say. I hope that will help.and a am very
happy with the linux mint personal Thank You very much.
