I have a Dell E197FP Monitor I hooked up to my new Windows 7 box. Windows won't give me a resolution over 1280 x 1024, even though I was running at a higher resolution on my XP system before. I know Win 7 supports higher resolutions, because it gave me higher options when hooked to a CRT monitor I used first. Suggestions?

That resolution is the maximum supported by that screen.

The CRT you used previously can go to higher resolutions but an LCD has a native resolution. In your case it is 1280 x 1024. It is not a matter of Win 7 but a matter of screen technology.
