1440x900 on my new Laptop

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.

  1. If you install your external monitor drivers on the laptop you should get its resolution available in display settings.
  2. 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?
  3. 64bit vista might work.
  4. ^+1 Vista 64 drivers should work.
  5. Ok, thanks. I'll give it a try tonight and see what I come up with.
  6. ]Not having any luck. This is the only driver file I could find on LG's site.....

    and there doesn't seem to be any exectuable file or anyway I can see to install any drivers...
  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.
