Hi im using a dual screen setup with a Dell and a syncmaster 2443nw (both 24" running at 1920*1200).
This setup used to work with my old GT8800 card but I just got a new HD5850 card and for some reason my syncmaster refuse to go higher than 1600*1200 (og 1080i / 30hz).

Any clues as to what i can do to fix this ?

thx!

My screen is the 2443nw - and it used to run fine in 1920*1200 before - trust me i know :)  - powerstrip also verifies that my screens max resolution is 1920*1200 /66hz - but i cannot set the resolution for some annoying reason.
