Default Widescreen LCD Monitor Incompatible?

I've got a Compaq Presario SR1330NX with the onboard VIA/S3G UniChrome IGP display adapter. I recently bought a Samsung SyncMaster 920nw and and I can't get the "S3Display" tab in the advanced options to give me a "Display Devices" option other than CRT. I've updated the adapter and monitor drivers and did a BIOS update to no avail.

Any advice or input? Thanks in advance.

Yeah, you'd think it would come with two because it is analog and digital compatible, but there's only the one.
