Dell XPS-M1330 + 3007WFPHC: how to select 2560 * 1600

Hi,

I've just received my Dell XPSM-1330 last week and all was good. However now i am trying to hook it up to my Dell 3007WFPHC monitor which has a native resolution of 2560 * 1600.

I've installed the latest Nvidia Forceware (Vista32 163.44) and i am not able to select any external resolution higher than the internal resolution of my panel (being 1280 * 800)

The 3007WFPHC is connected via an HDMI to DVI cable and is properly recognized by Forceware. However everytime i want to apply a setting, forceware jumps back to "Generic Plug & Play Monitor" which then limits me to 1280 * 800.

The 8400G-M supports Dual link up to 2560 * 1600 and was my main reason for choosing the M1330, however i have no clue how to get this selected via the HDMI port.

All tips are welcome!

Just to add: I understood that the HDMI output supported DUAL LINK (which is required in order to drive 2560 * 1600)

Hello,

You need a special DUAL LINK DVI cable also, have a look here http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/monitor3.htm

If the cable doesn't support DUAL LINK you'll get the resolution divided by 2 (what you get).

Hope this helps.

I've just "solved" my 3007HC-wfp issue.

The EDID from he 2007HC only provides 2 hardware resolutions: 1280 * 800 (which is the same as the xps-m1330 screen) and 2560 * 1600 (requires dual link)

since HDMI is single link, the 3007HC defaults to 1280 * 800 (instead of 1920 * 1080)

The HDMI out does 1440 * 850 perfectly on my 1908wfp and 1920 * 1080p on my Pioneer PDP-5000ex

so i am going to sell my 3007HC wfp and buy an 2407wfp which is fully supported via HDMI n the XPS-M1330 (1920 * 1080)

Currently i am running with the 156.64 drivers and they work perfectly with all notebook add-ons enabled and full support for dualscreen.
