Have you tried completing the installation, or did you just stop when you saw the incorrect screen size?


Do you drive a Civic, Del Sol, or Integra & want more power & tighter steering feel? Click here for my inexpensive DIY Power-Steering Removal Kits.

i just stop at the beginning of the installation, can't see the button or text area to input, screen just show 30% of total page with top menu only
(hint- the screen is 40%++ black margin, with image at the center )

does this is the fault from VRAM setting?
