Fine-Tuning the Display

Windows has always enabled you to change the resolution and number of colors displayed on your computer screen. Windows XP works like previous versions in this regard, and adds the capability to improve the look of LCD displays via the new ClearType technology.

Changing the Display Resolution

Assuming you have a powerful enough video card, you can configure your computer's display to run at a variety of screen resolutions. Be sure you've selected the proper display setup for your video card; however if you set up your display to run at a higher resolution than your card is capable of, you could end up with a lot of gibberish on your screen, and could even damage your monitor.
