Default Monitor + Cable doesnt want to display resolution.....

Ok,

I have a Xerox XR6-19DW and it doesnt want to display widescreen resolutions..on a different cable because there is one missing pin, but no loss in quality or picture....

Basically, with the OEM cable, it will allow me to display its max res = 1440x900 but with a 12' belkin svga, it wont....during boot that is.

If i use the old cable, turn it to 1440x900 and swap out the cable, it works fine.

My question is -> Is there any way to force windows or the video card to transmit at the setting regardless of what it wants to do.

I have tried PowerStrip with no success, unless there is a hack.

Could someone help me...

what's your video card, and what drivers do you have?

you can change to a custom resolution in the registry:

But as I said, the video card does support that resolution and i did a cable swap with the old cable and it does display that resolution on the old cable....
