The MONITOR.INF file for your display. If your video card can produce the needed pixels, once you offer Windows this file then you will find some new resolutions offers. I decline to write what this file is about, how to use etc. Please research with google, yahoo, etc.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
