Dell WSXGA 1920x1200 1440x900

I have tried a few drivers from this site in the past and have liked them, but I would like native resolution and scaled down resolution for my Dell xps 2.

How can I do this?

Thanks in advance

What do you mean they won't work?

Go get 84.21 and Pieter's INF.


It should let you select those resolutions, although I have no clue why you would want to scale 1440x900 onto a WUXGA screen, your just distorting the image.

You should run your desktop at the full res and your games at the full res.

If your games somehow don't run at the full res on that fast laptop run them at 960x600. (non widescreen games run at 800x600 (fixed aspect ratio scaling on) or 1600x1200 (with scaling turned off))

You can go to appearance in the desktop right click properties menu and adjust stuff to make it bigger if you really can't read it at the full res, but I have no trouble reading my brother's IXPS Gen 2 M170's 17 inch screen. (mine is harder to read, being smaller)

To turn scaling on go to the resolution menu and hit advanced then find the 7800 go GTX tab or whatever card you have and go the menu for your screen and turn it to GPU scaling or whatever it is called.

Sometimes the fixed aspect ratio scaling doesn't work, it has locked my laptop before, atleast with certain drivers. (they were probably just buggy though)
