DTDs in [NonEDIDMode_AddSwSettings] section for 945GM

DTDs in [NonEDIDMode_AddSwSettings] section for 945GM

PROBLEM SOLVED WITH ARCHIBAELS METHOD! BIOS WAS NOT ALLOWING ME TO SELECT THE DESIRED RESOLUTION

Hi!
I have a Fujitsu AMILO SL T3230 (23 inch) TFT connected to my Toshiba Portege M500 and want to use the 1920 x 1080 resolution at 60Hz.

When I go to Display Settings with "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" unchecked 1920x1080 is not available.

There is only either 1680x1050 or 1920x1200. Currently I am using 1680x1050.

Could you please provide me with the DTD Setting for 1920 x 1080 at 60Hz as I am not knowledgeable in terms of editing INF files?

Additional info:
When I open the igdlh.inf which can be found when downloading the display drivers from the Intel homepage there is actually a DTD line for "1920x1080@60...Interlaced". So i changed "TotalDTDCount" from 0 to 5 and rebooted. Now I do have 1920x1080 but only with 25Hz Interlaced and 30 Hz Interlaced.

Currently [NonEDIDMode_AddSwSettings] looks like this:

[NonEDIDMode_AddSwSettings]
HKR,, TotalDTDCount, %REG_DWORD%, 0 ; This shows number of DTDs to be used. ; 0-->Disable the feature.
;Following keys have 20 bytes (18 byte DTD + 2 Byte flags).
HKR,, DTD_1,%REG_BINARY%, 01,1D,80,18,71,1C,16,20,58,2C,1A,00,00,00,00,00,00,86,37,01 ;1920x1080@60...Interlaced

HKR,, DTD_4, %REG_BINARY%, 01,1D,00,72,51,D0,1E,20,6E,28,25,00,00,00,00,00,00,06,37,01 ;1280x720@60....Non-interlaced
HKR,, DTD_5,%REG_BINARY%, 00, 00, 00 ,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00 ;Fifth DTD

I got the idea to edit the DTD setting to get my desired 1920x1080 result from the following threads:
