Just incase you want to try this:
Go to Start > Run
, type regedit
and click OK
. In the registry, navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Hardwa re Profiles\Current\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\ VIDEO
Expand the trees in that section and look for entries DefaultSettings.XResolution
. Set the X
figure to 1680
and the Y
figure to 1050
. If there are multiple entries, then change them all to 1680x1050
Once this is done, reboot your system.
Your card will need to support custom resolutions, but if you change this and once rebooted your screen becomes garbled; restart your computer, enter Safe Mode
and delete the display device. Also, re-edit the registry back to a standard supported resolution (1024x768, 1280x1024 or something along those lines), restart and boot as normal; then reinstall it from there. If you run on Windows XP, it will naturally automatically detect it, and if your drivers have been kept in the cache, then it should install these for you also.
