Help with external monitor resolution problems.


Recommended Posts

Morning all, i have got a new MacBook Pro and i'm currently getting vista how i like it.

I've hit my first major hurdle in using my second monitor.

My gfx card is 8600m gt, im using a DVI-I Cable ti connect my MBP to my Dell 2001FP. I am currently running the laptopvideo2go 160.03 drivers with the modded .inf.

Basically my problem is resolution selection on the 2nd monitor, i can only select up to 1024x768, when the monitors resolution is 1600x1200. Also, the monitor is detected as Generic PnP monitor, not Dell 2001FP.

So firstly, is there anyway i can force a resolution on to my external display?

Why is the EDID not being read? Anyway i can manually update this information or actually check the reading of it?

Any ideas?

Cheers for any help guys, Chris.

Powerstrip works in XP.. Not sure about Vista. And you may check if there's a driver somewhere for your screen. Or any 1600*1200 screen.
