Trying to use my older widecreen monitor with my new laptop. Can't get the resolution right.

Hardware:

Toshiba A505-6025 - Intel i3.
Video: Intel GMA HD
Monitor: LG Flatron L196WTQ-BF
Win 7 Home Premium 64B
Using a VGA cable.


THe monitor has an auto set on it, and when I hit it says set to 1440x900. Only that is not an available option in control panel. I really have no idea where to go/what to do to try to get this working right.

If you install your external monitor drivers on the laptop you should get its resolution available in display settings.

I checked LG's site and they only have drivers for Win XP and Vista. Should I attempt to install one of these on Win 7?

Hmm try saving them in a known location, then go to hardware in control panel, find the monitor and go to properties. There should be a driver tab, and you can choose to find the latest drivers, then select that folder. It might work that way.
