1920x1080 external with Inspiron 8500

Hi,

I have an Inspiron 8500 with a GeForce4 4200 Go 64 MB.

Is there a possibility to use an external display with Full-HD-resolution 1920x1080?

Right now I can't set this resolution ore any 16:10/9 for the external output, it only gives me 4:3-ones like 1600x1200, 1920x1440, ...

regards

That should work over VGA. Try adding the resolution to the INF and re-install your current driver.

Although I'm no expert in that I already tried this. I replaced the 1920x1440 in the INF with 1920x1080.

The effect was that the new resolution is now available for the internal notebook-display (WUXGA) in addition, but not for display no 2 (where the 1920x1440 was before!).

I'm using the 67.42 driver. Can this be a matter of the driver?

You can try adding a custom resolution for that monitor, just tell it 1080p and leave the settings on auto.

If your going to upgrade 82.10 is a good one for that card. You can use it with the stock INF too. (might need some of Pieter's tweaks to enable custom resolution menu)

Great, after upgrading to 82.10 and adding 1080 to Pieter's INF it works!

Thanks!
