Hopefully by the end of the year, I will have a new 24" LCD monitor. It will either be the Dell Ultrasharp U2410, or the HP LP2475w. I believe that they are quite similar monitors, in terms of specification and quality. For instance, they both have great hardware scaling. However, the Dell monitor has the useful VGA D-SUB connection on the back, whereas the HP monitor requires a DVI to analog adapter, if you want to use a VGA cable, because it has no D-SUB connector. Is this bad? Also, what about a Windows 9x .INF driver file? I'm not sure if either monitor will have this file on their installation CD-ROM, for use with Windows 95/98. If these monitors don't support windows9x, will this cause a major problem? Can you write your own .INF file, and somehow trick both the monitor and Operating System that the information in a newly created .INF file is acceptable, providing that the information inside the .INF is technically suitable? Presumably, you would need to read the monitor's technical specification from the user guide appendix section, and then write an .INF file based around that. Thanks for any ideas.
