wuruoyu,

Your Toshiba manual claims you won't be able to get anything more than 1280x1024 out of the VGA input. It may not be lying. That said, you could try a generic 1366x768 value and see if it works...

66,21,50,B0,51,00,1B,30,40,70,36,00,00,00,00,00,00,1E,37,01

Hi, Archibael. Thanks alot for your reply and answer. could you please give me a little more instruction of how to get this value to work? what kind of tools i need to edit it?

Here is the link of 32hl86:

http://www.toshiba.ca/web/product.grp?lg=en&section=2&group=6&product=6259&category

it shows 1366 x 768 LCD Display.

I can get 1280x1024, the image is not clear but not out of the range.

Thanks alot again.

I am using winvista_1543 driverfor vista. I set to 5: TotalDTDCount, %REG_DWORD%, 5,

change the DTD_5,%REG_BINARY%, 66,21,50,B0,51,00,1B,30,40,70,36,00,00,00,00,00,00,1E,37,01 ;Fifth DTD in igdlh.inf file.

Install the driver, but only 1360x768 show in the options, and 1360x768 is not working on my moniter is out of range.

Still cannot get 1366x786 option to show up. Did I miss anything here?

also i check in the registery, the DTD_5 is still 0000000....

and totalDTDCount is 0

Thanks again Archibael.

I won't answer the first part, as it looks like you figured it out. As for the "1366x768" vs. "1280x1024", I'm just looking at page 16 ofthe 32HL86owner's manual, which says anything except those four modes (and 1280x1024 is as high as it goes) won't work. Sometimes even if the display is a certain resolution the inputs won't accept it-- this happens most often with HDMI, but it has been known to occur in VGA as well.

Sorry, I gave you the generic DTD for 1360; should still have worked if the rest of the timings were right, it would just have cut 6 pixels off one side. Which means that the rest of the timings were wrong... which is not good news. I'll keep looking to see if I can find a 1366x768 Modeline from a similar Toshiba display, but so far not too much in luck.

You can try

66,21,56,AA,51,00,1B,30,40,70,36,00,00,00,00,00,00,1E,37,01

andthe driver should give you 1366, but it will still be out of range of your monitor because the basic timings have not changed.

also i check in the registery, the DTD_5 is still 0000000....

and totalDTDCount is 0

Thanks again Archibael.

That's a weird one. Though I suspect if you go to the registry entry for CurrentSettings the DTD_5 and TotalDVDCount will have changed; there are a number of registry entries that get populated, and some of them may get missed.

Thanks alot Archibael for all the explanation, i got 1366x768 option now, but too bad still not working for my monitor, just like you said is out of range like the 1360x768.

So is that mean i am out off luck at all in this situation.

Thanks again.

You might be, alas. I'm not sure it's an Intel graphics thing, either. If you can find someone who got it working on an Nvidia or an ATI card, and can get the timings information, I am nearly certain I can help you get it working on your Intel graphics as well. But without timing information that's hard to do.

Another option you might have is getting a VGA-to-component transcoder and sending something like 1280x720 or 1920x1080i in over theColorstream inputs and letting the TV scaleto 1366x768. Or you might get better/different results using a DVI ADD2 card (~$30) over the DVI or HDMI inputs on your TV.

Thanks all your help, Archibael.

Do you think this one will be scale by the TV to 1366x768?

Could you please get methe sample of the VGA-to-component transcoder and DVI ADD2 CARD for laptop for me please?

Oops... sorry, forgot you're on a notebook. You're right, there's no equivalent of an ADD2 card for notebooks. Some docking stations have DVI, but that's not excatly a cheap solution.

As for VGA-to-component transcoders, they look pretty expensive to me; it's not as simple as the cable you linked to.
