comment Getting proper resolution with Windows 7 and older monitor
@and31415 the adapter is built into the motherboard. There are 4 hardware IDs listed in device manager: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E12&SUBSYS_3036103C&REV_03 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E12&SUBSYS_3036103C PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E12&CC_030000 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E12&CC_0300. The driver version is 8.15.10.1749 and it's Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

comment Getting proper resolution with Windows 7 and older monitor
Powerstrip isn't free, it's $30 shareware. But it did point out to me the way to get 1024x768 working, by setting the refresh rate to 60hz, so it was helpful for that. Still couldn't get me to 1280x1024 so I uninstalled it. As for the aspect ratio difference I suspect that the resizing logic in the monitor simply makes the pixels non-square at the lower resolutions since it has to rescale them anyway. The difference isn't enough to be noticeable.

comment Why do messages in processors need to be sinusoidal?
I think what you're asking is why processors use an internal clock, and the answer is it's not a requirement - see stackoverflow.com/questions/530180/…

comment How do I direct inbound network traffic to a specific internal IP based on the requested hostname? (Win 2012)
@ShaneC, that's exactly the problem. Outside the network everybody needs to get the same IP address, the external one. The protocol doesn't allow you to return two IP addresses, only one. You then have to rely on other information, namely the port number, to get it to the proper machine.

comment Scale desktop 4:3 to 16:9
Since this question has nothing to do with programming, it really doesn't belong here. The best answer I can give you is that the reaction of your monitor to a change in resolution is completely up to the monitor itself, and your description is how most (all?) of them work. Not much you can do about it.

comment How to run a file as executable with a different extension?
Do you have any examples? I just started Task Manager and I couldn't see anything but .exe files listed.

comment How do I escape windows repair install and start in normal boot?
Files don't just corrupt themselves. You should get a new HD and start over. You can move the old one and use it as a second drive if there is important information you want to pull from it.

comment Accessing an application running in VirtualBox through Windows?
You don't mention any programming in the question, and the answer isn't likely to involve programming either.

comment What is the maximum resolution that a Thunderbolt monitor can display?
There's no need for a video signal to include an alpha channel, so wouldn't it be 24 bits per pixel? That would make it 13.8 Mpixel.
