I've had it! I love my CF-31 but I can't stand this 1024x768 resolution much longer! Does anyone know of LCD's I can "swap" out? I'm not going to be too upset if I end up losing the touch screen in the process.

Well, I doubt it. I know on a cf52 the resolution is locked into the BIOS.

I'm an idea man, I thrive on enthusiasm! I don't need your negativity Shawn :-P

Hmmm, I feel like there's got to be a way! This resolution is driving me nuts!

It is "possible" just not simple. You'll need to edit the bios and change the resolutions. Then get a better screen and see if it works.
Simple way......sell the cf31 and buy a cf53...

I like this. My thought exactly. But then again I never did anything the simple way in my life. :D

Wanna trade? :swords:

I also have a 52 with a new WUXGA 1920x1200 screen,2.4cpu with 4000 hours but that's probably not fast enough for you.But boy does that new screen look beautiful. :boing:

I believe the CF-31 will run an external monitor at higher resolution. If it will and you can find a hi-res display panel that fits the case, you might hook it up internally to the external monitor port. If the built-in touchscreen won't calibrate to the new display you might have to get another touch panel and connect it internally as if it was a USB touchscreen for the external (internally connected) display.

Talk to Onakriss...
He's the one who modded the cf52 BIOS's to bypass the whitelist.....
I tried but met with fail...
