Need help with getting 1440x900 working on a G965

Hello, I need help getting 1440x900 working on a G965. I am so frustrated at this point. I have a computer running a 945G chipset that had 1440x900 support working out of the box, I cannot understand why Intel doesn't have this support in the G965!

My LCD monitor is a ViewSonic VG1930wm (19" widescreen).

MonInfo shows just this (that's right, no other info shows up):

Hardware information........ n/a
Windows description......... ViewSonic VG1930wm

Display adapter
Adapter description......... Intel G965 Express Chipset Family
Adapter device ID........... 0x29A28086
Display settings............ 1600x900, 32bpp

User/computer information
Registered user name........
Registered organization.....
Network user name...........
Network computer name.......
Windows version ............ Windows XP
Windows build .............. 5.01.2600 Service Pack 2
Installation date .......... 7/3/2007 12:00:00 PM

I tried installing the latest Intel G965 drivers, latest BIOS for the DG965RY motherboard, and even used the ViewSonic monitor drivers. Nothing fixes the issue.

Could someone please help me out? Thank you!

Sucky that MonInfo isn't reporting anything for you. Seeing that more and more. :( It means your monitor is not responding back with the information it should be providing when queried by the graphics system.

Anyway, I checked your manual, and it's likely generic VESA timings for 1440x900x60Hz should work:

PowerStrip timing parameters:

Converted to a DTD:

97, 29, A0, D0, 51, 84, 20, 30, 50, 98, 13, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 1C, 37, 01

Follow the directions in the "Programmable Resolutions..." thread further down the forum. Not sure the links to the Wiki will work anymore, but the instructions I recently gave Richard Crossman in the 1360x768 thread should work for you. If this doesn't work, your BIOS may be limiting you. Try 1432x900 instead:

97, 29, 98, D8, 51, 84, 20, 30, 50, 98, 13, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 1C, 37, 01

Come back if you need more help.



That worked perfectly!

Thank you so much for your help!

I hope Intel offers this resolution as a built-in option soon.
