Abs G3 A45 - Radeon 9700 - Won't go to 1680x1050
I am using an external monitor for my laptop. The monitor is a Samsung 226BW. My native resolution is 1680x1050. The monitor reports that it is running 1680x1050, but Windows XP (x86 pro) says its running 1400x1050. It's more then obvious it's not running 1680x1050.
No matter what I do, I cannot get 1680x1050. I can get 1600x1050, 1400x1050, but not 1680x1050. I installed Samsung's drivers for my monitor,
I am using VGA, and my desktop PC is hooked up through DVI which runs 1680x1050 fine (8800 GT).
The laptop's specs:
Radeon 9700 Pro
AMD XP 3400+
Windows XP Pro
Is there any kind of hack to make this work? I even went as far as installing Omega drivers... even though they aren't recommended. I use this laptop for development, and it's very important I see the right screen resolution. Any suggestions would be great, thanks!
