Good try, but doesn't seem to work.  I don't have time right now to dig
deeper and figure it out, what I've got is soooooo much better than
what I had that I'm really, really happy just to have the screen work
right!  Maybe when I get a new computer in 2 years....

Thanks for all the help Jeff, very much appreciated.

Patience, persistence, truth,
