Yes, I know. He referred to your problems with a crash. But you said,
you are using this resolution with a Lenny setup.

Maybe this was not very smart from me, but I just wanted to point out
that in contrary to my situation some people have a working external
1680 * 1050 setup.

As I said, some, e. g. you, are using 1680 * 1050 with a Lenny setup.

And I want to know why. You wrote, you just had to add the VirtualScreen
section and it worked. In the forum they say it has to do with the
underpowering of the processor.

Maybe I will find some differences in the log-files comparing the
versions. It is not logical for me why with the same model you get
different results. So I would like to take this shot.

Thanks anyways,
