HELP 1920x1080 resolution on a Geforce 7600 GO?

Hello,

I bought the Samsung Syncmaster P2250 (16:9, 1920x1080) today and I can't select the native resolution of the screen in my properties.

I connected the screen on my Toshiba Laptop which has a Geforce 7600 GO card (VGA only!!).

I can chose between:

1280x800 (native resolution of the LAPTOP SCREEN)

1280x1024

1600x1200

1920x1440

2048x1536

but there is no 1920x1080 res.!!

I installed the latest official driver for the GO series and it still isn't working... is there another way or do I have to give the screen back??

Thanks in advance!

Did you use a mod INF from here?

You can force the resolution too by checking the box that says something like "Allow modes not exposed by the display" in the nvidia control panel.

Hello Bill!

Thanks for your answer.

I already checked the box you mentioned and the resolutions listed above are the only one I can choose.

Well, I'm new here on this site and it would be very helpful if you (or someone else :) ) could explain to me, step by step, how to procede to install a mod INF.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A100-405 which runs under Win XP MCE 32bit. My graphic card is a Geforce 7600 GO 256mb with VGA output ONLY.

Thank you! :)

Hello,

I managed to install the newest driver with the modded INF and it works for the resolutions. So this problem is solved...

Somehow, the Samsung screen becomes black like every 20 seconds for 1 seconds!

Why is this happening and how can I fix this?

Thanks!

Uninstall the driver and try an older one like a 18x series.

You may need to check a box to force HDTV resolution. Really though you need a DVI/HDMI out for HDTV stuff though.

hey Bill!

I installed an older driver and it seems to work fine! I know it's not the best solution, but i just have my old laptop with VGA output for the moment... the next computer will surely have a DVI output. :)

Thanks a lot for your help!
