'[OT]: Video resolution available?'
2007\01\30@214122 by William Couture

Hi!

Checking out new system, I'm trying to see if my video card (Nvidia 7300LE)
can do WSXGA+ resolution (1680 x 1050).

It's not on the listed modes (though ones like 1600 x1024, 1600 x 1200, and
1920 x 1080 are).

I've tried a google search, but haven't found anything but other people asking
the same question.

Anyone have clues or better luck in a search?

Thanks,
  Bill

I just upgraded to dual LCD's today from dual CRT's - list of available resolutions
changed when the card detected the new monitors (required a reboot). My card is
an NVIDIA GeForce 6200, each monitor now set to 1400 x 1050.

I'm running Windows XP, what is your OS?

Did you use a "default" resolution, or did you set a custom resolution?

Thanks,

Windows XP Pro. Not sure exactly what you mean by default vs custom. Right click
on desktop > Properties > Settings then screen resolution slider lets you adjust. My
setup actually shows 2800 x 1050 here as I used the NVidia Control Panel to setup
my dual screen environment as a spanned virtual display (accessed by further
selecting Advanced > GeForce 6200 tab > NVIDIA Control Panel > Multiple Display
Wizard).

If you click Advanced & the Adapter tag a whole new world of
possibilities opens up. (At least with XP home & 2k & earlier)

I had that exact same problem when hooking up my lovely new Viewsonic
1680x1050 to an nVidia card through my KVM switch.

I don't remember the exact steps I had to take to get the proper
modeline inserted, but it did require RivaTuner, IIRC:

Good luck!

Yes, thanks, but the available resolutions listed even there still seem dependant on
the montitor detected. As I was saying to the original poster I used to have dual 19"
CRT's running at 1280 x 1024 (dual span 2560 x 1024). When tempted to replace
them with 20" LCD's on special I looked to see if my card would do the required new
resolution of 1400 x 1050 (dual span 2800 x 1050) and despite lot's of options being
available their was nothing quite right. The LCD seller said my card would recognise
the new monitors when connected, so I bought them, and it did! The list of
supported resolutions is now quite different to before and the LCD's are running
nicely at their native resolution.

XP decides what resolutions to allow based on the monitor it detected.  Have you ever installed an 'inf' file for your display?

Even if the standard video drivers won't allow that resolution, you could always use PowerStrip to set it http://entechtaiwan.net/util/ps.shtm
