1680x1050_W7_ATI Radeon HD4300/HD4500_HP w2007

Hello, I have a new computer Windows 7 64 bit home edition. It has an ATI Radeon HD 4300/HD4500 video card and an HP w2007 Monitor. The monitor wants to be set to 1680x1050/60 mhz. Unfortunately, Windows will only let me set to 1600x1200 and does not recognize my HP monitor as such, rather it is calling my monitor (which it is using) a 'Generic Non PnP Monitor'

What do I do to get it to recognize the HP monitor and allow me to set the correct resolution?

    OK, I have installed the driver - and it is there in C:/Swsetup/Monitors/HP_w2007_3.0

    Still no luck, it is not showing up in screen resolution.

    It was working in the past - in fact, the resolution was correct - then this am I looked at the comp, and the resolution was all wacky ( I assumed it restarted overnite due to an automatic update) but now i just don't know.

    Any idea's?

    Thanks. I had already installed those - in fact the whole "Catalyst control center".

    Alas, still no luck even after reboot this am. I still cannot access the correct resolution for my screen. The best is 1600x1200. There is no option for 1680x1050. It evidently 'acknowledges' my HP monitor though, it no longer calls it a "generic PnP'

    So, to recap - all drivers (HP Monitor [HP_w2007_3.0] and ATI GPU [Catalyst Software Suite] ) installed.

    Any other idea's?

    That is very strange since if the monitor is correctly identified then windows should automatically make the native resolution max! Check in your CCC whether there is any forced monitor resolutions.
  4. Well, It suddenly, without prompting and of it's own accord decided to change to the correct resolution. I was running a virus check, away from the comp - and when I came back voila' the resolution had changed. Thanks. (ghost in the machine)
  5. Great! Just make sure that the ghost is not browsing any dubious websites!
