We discovered a few things about the Sony system during this testing. In that case the display on an all-in-one works like a standalone monitor, and the graphics card does not come into play with regard to image quality. Between that and the chopped down display resolution, the trade offs that come with the X-Realty chip aren't worth the added cost. We are glad to help you! It reinstalled the driver when it made the correction. No matter which variable I adjusted, either by itself or with others, the system wouldn't recognize my gestures outside of the tutorial software.
