So I have a situation where I need to use HDMI to power my 2 x U2711's. I am running everything long haul (my computer is in the center of the house and everything wires through the walls), so I depend on HDMI to bring my room audio. And then I started having this problem:
For some reason, the U2711 monitors (2560x1440 native resolution) require a custom resolution to be made in order to get max resolution over HDMI. On GeForce 301.42 Drivers, this works great, but something went wrong on all the newer drivers. Using the same parameters, I just get an error saying that my monitor doesn't support that resolution.
So basically, I don't know what steps to do next? Is there any way for me to set these parameters manually? Does anyone know of a way around this?
I would just stay at my existing drivers, but I fear I will need to upgrade eventually and these drivers don't work on Windows 8 anymore.
