widescreen drivers for a dell laptop

I know this is old, but I'm trying to get my old Dell Inspiron 8200 with 32M Geforce4 440 go to display to a widescreen resolution. I hooked up an external widescreen monitor and it doesn't seem to want to use anything but standard resolutions. I searched through here and, based on the device id and subsys (DEV_0174&SUBSYS_00D41028), driver 85.96 came up. But when I tried to install it, it said that it didn't find any drivers that are compatible with my hardware.

Am I just trying to do something that can't be done or can anyone point me in the right direction?

Make sure you use the mod inf file. Also make sure the resolution you want to use is included in the inf. You can manually add extra resolutions to it pretty easily. There is a resolution list near the bottom of it.
