archibael,

I've been having problems with my new Dell 2007WFP (1680x1050 max res)
on my Dell D610 laptop running WinXP, and your posts have been
extremely helful. I have figure out what my problem was with getting
the monitor to work with the graphics adapter I have. I wanted to post
my findings in case it helps others having the same problem or wanting
to code up their own DTDs in [NonEDIDMode_AddSwSettings] section a 915GM driver installer.

The Dell D610 laptop I have has the following integrated graphics card:

Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family

This graphics adapter initially worked perfectly with the 2007WFP
monitor. The adapter recognized the monitor's optimal resolution
immediately. Then after updating the graphics drivers to version
6.14.10.4693 (found here:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&...),

the graphics adapter offered resolutions from 800x600 to 1920x1200, but
no longer the 1680x1050. I tried reverting to the original driver
version, but this caused more problems than anything. I had even tried
updating the DTDs in [NonEDIDMode_AddSwSettings] section for the
adapter driver's installer given info from all of your past posts
=) Complete shot in the dark, which didn't really make things much better. I was able to achieve the 1680x1050 resolution, but the timing info I had was not correct, so the image didn't look good.

The problem turned out was that I have a KVM switch that the monitor
goes thru for two systems I have. I didn't have the KVM initially, so
the 2007WFP monitor was plugged directly to the laptop. The "Plug and
Play Monitor" driver detected the monitor's EDID correctly, and when I
started using the KVM switch, it remembered the settings. After
updating the adapter's drivers, it couldn't detect the monitor's EDID
because of the KVM.

The fix was to simply plug the monitor directly to the laptop, make
sure the monitor driver was "Plug and Play Monitor", reboot once to
make sure it detected the 1680x1050 resolution, then use the KVM
again. It's now working as before.

Here's the output from the moninfo.exe
(http://www.entechtaiwan.com/files/moninfo.exe) tool you recomended to
use to get the monitor's timing info. I figure someone would find this
data useful for a Dell 2007WFP monitor (the monitor needed to be
plugged directly to the laptop for moninfo.exe to work too):

Thank you again for all your posts. I hope this helps others stuck in monitor hell...

-Sean.

Sean,

Thanks for the info. I admit, I hadn't considered the complexities involved when using a KVM switch as an intermediary. But your fix (plugging directly into the monitor, temporarily) is a good one.

I have the DQ965GF MB with the 965 chips, VX2235 monitor, and the same missing 1680x1050 resolution. I tried the option of changing the inf, but alone, that didn't do it. However, in the readme for the videodrivers, it describes setup.exe switches. Sure enough, when I ran (from cmd) setup.exe -res 1680x1050x16x60 (16 is the medium resolution) and rebooted, it worked. There are now the three entries in the modes list (256, med, hi color) at 1680 x 1050. note--when I rebooted, the Windows login screen was wacky, and unreadable, but after the boot finished, the screen popped up perfect.

rparker8,

I'd noticed this a million years ago, but had never done anything with it because I'd concentrated on the .INF file fix. But you're right, once the .INF file fix is done, this should force the resolution to be selected. Good finding!

So Archibael...Oh wise one...(From a non-techie who is scared to play with BIOS and regedit)

Toshiba U205-s5067, 2G shared RAM, 945GM Express. External viewsonic va1930wm. VISTA HOME PREMIUM. Best res I can get 1024x 768 which shows barely enough for a desktop publisher to work with. I want native 1440x900. I have toggled in to the output monitor, etc.

In the Intel Graphics accelerator window it says 2 montiors can be supported and I have the Viewsonic connected thru the VGA dynadock. In device manager the viewsonic is recognized (that was only accomplished by downloading Viewsoonic Unsigned, not Vista droivers on their site).

Could it be as simple as connecting the Viewsonic directly to the video port on the computer (vs dock?) or is there a semi-non-techie thing I can do to get the desired resolution?

PROBLEM SOLVED!!!

Yes it was the docking station!!!

SO...if you are having trouble getting an external monitor recognized on your laptop with 945GM express and you are working thru a docking station...DO NOT PANIC...just disconnect the video thru the docking station, put it directly in the computer. You will gind the graphics accelerator in the icon tray then(after reboot) recognizes everyhting and works perfectly.

I have dell 2007fp, and use gigabyte G965DS mother board with intel GMA 3000 and winXP SP2, video drivers 14.29.

It works good, but in 1600x1200 res i see in my monitor some strange waves or flickers like lines... At most time my eyes don't cath this effect, but if i use solid color on a big part of screen (like in photoshop) then i see this lines... it like bad signal on tv...

i test my motnitor on over extendent graphic card with VGA out, and with current cabel - in 1600x1200 all OK.

And, on smaller resolution all OK. But my work res is 1600x1200, so, what can i do?

Is it software problem, or it hardware bug?

Thank!

Sounds like a sync issue to me. Can you run MonInfo? We can force the right sync on your monitor with a DTD if we have to.

Yes, there is:

Try forcing this DTD using the Wiki instructions from this thread.

48 3F 40 30 62 B0 32 40 40 C0 13 00 6F 13 11 00 00 1E

If the problem still manifests, try varying the last byte (sync) from 1E to 1A, 18, and 1C.

That's the limit of my knowledge, though. Sorry.

archibeal, you da man! Thanks for your tips!!! -randy

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Randy.

Hi All,

Sorry to come so late to all of this. The latest Intel drivers for the G965 claims to allow the 1680x1050 to be chosen but that is not the case for my ACER 22" wide screen LCD. has anybody else managed to get the new drivers to solve this problem?

/LMCNLCY

What is your system?

Several things could be going wrong: the monitor's EDID may not be reporting 1680x1050 as a supportable resolution, and the Intel driver is likely believing it; Even if the drivers are allowing it, if you're on a pre-built system it's possible the vendor is locking it out with the BIOS. And then there's always the good old "Intel's drivers are being finicky again" answer, in which case I suggest you contact their Customer Service folks to complain.

In any case, you can create a custom resolution per the instructions in this thread, and I'll help out.

Hi,

Sorry for the very quick post, I will give you more details here.

The PC is one that I upgraded using a new mobo (DG965WH). I had previously used a ASUS mobo with an AGP graphics card. The previous system allowed native resolution 1680x1050 to be set using the NVIDIA setup.

I have just run Moninfo and received very little information (copied here):

Nothing else!

However I have noted elsewhere that someone who has my exact monitor has successfully fixed their issue (but with a 945 chipset). I think, following your logic, that the string should work for me. The link is here:

Thanks for such a clear and focussed article.

Hi Archibael

I have Intel DG33TL motherboard and 14.32 driver installed. LCD TV connected via DVI (HDMI on TV). Can't select 1360x768 resolution, drivers have only 1280x720 at 85hz,but in that case I have small picture in black box. Drivers have only 1360x765 at 85hz(??), it non-native resolution. I can select it and picture fine, but video runs with some break sync.Can U help me to modify inf? My mon info:

Hmmm... difficult to guess what kind of 1360x768 timings your monitor wants since it doesn't list them in the EDID.

You can try one of thegeneric ones:

1B 21 50 A0 51 00 1E 30 48 88 35 00 00 00 00 00 001C 37 01

Hi, is anybody here who can help me with my LCD monitor SAMSUNG 225MW, i have a problem with conecting a HDMI cable. Could you tell me my string for resolution 1650 x 1080 @ 60, if i'll give you followings info from MONINFO ( this info, is when i'm connecting via D-sub ( VGA ) cable, not via HDMI, but i think that EDID information are same, aren't it ?! )
I tried this string ( + 2 bytes flags ) : 21 39 90 30 62 1A 27 40 68 B0 36 00 DA 28 11 00 00 1C, but it didn't work :(

That is indeed the correct DTD for 1680x1050. However, some (it used to be MOST) monitors will not accept their native resolution over HDMI and will only take 1080p or 720p, even if it works over VGA aka Dsub.

This is just a note for anyone reading this thread - I have had a couple of people email me for the driver file that worked for me, after I modified it. So, I have posted it online for anyone who wants it. It is at www.edcayce.com/IntelVideoDriver.zip. I think it is this version:
DriverVer=10/06/2006,6.14.10.4704

It may not be the latest version, but it does work, and now displays 1440x900 without a problem.

Email me if it works for you. If it doesn't, well, you're on your own...

i do not understand what peace of code i wil have to insert in de .inf file now.

I want the monitor to run on 848X480 its native resolution, do you think that is even possible with intels 945 express chipset? checking the windows option, it even shows me the possibility to select 848x480, if i select it, it will show in a window. small window in the middle of the screen, everything around stays black.

I did manage to get it to work with powerstripe by adjusting every single parameter possible in the advanced timing options, but the screen will not always show a picture. somehow it goes black and i can not get it to live again, without rebooting the computer. furthermore, sometimes the computer crashes and after rebbot it will not show a picture because there is a powerstip windows saying that powerstrip was not completly shut down....... only solution: rebootor hook up a standard monitor to even see it. it kind of gets on my nerves.

greatfull for help!

Through VGA or DVI? I'm not sure DVI will work, and it could well generate the shrunken down screen you've seen.

2F 0D52EE 30 E0 25 10 10 70 68 00 94 06 32 00 00 1E 37 01 (comma delimited)

is what you can place in the DTD_1 variable in the .INF; that and changing TotalDTDCount to 1 should work to get the correct850x480 in place on VGA. Note that the manual says youneed to select "Wide2" on theRGB Select screen or the image will be distorted.

I'd de-install Powerstrip as well. It's a great program, but doesn't do pretty things with Intel graphics.

archibael,

wow, i am impressed how easy it is. thanx a lot for you quick response and help!

hello archibael,

one more question, if i want the computer to do 1360x768 what line do i have to insert in the drivers .inf file? please look into my previous post for all the moninfo details.

it would be awsome if you could help me again.

many thanx in advanced!

I finally managed to get the moninfo details for the monitor in question. I would now need the DTD lines for the drivers .inf file.

help me

Don't know why you're seeing different behavior in WinXP vs Vista, but if you use the DTD method you should be able to program 1024x768@85 with

Modeline "1024x768@85" 98.9 1024 1056 1216 1408 768 782 788 822 -HSync
-VSync

or in DTD language:

A2 26 00 80 41 00 36 30 20 A0 E6 00 00 00 00 00 00 18

nice day, very big thanks archibael!!

Hi archibael,

are you able to give me the code vor 1680x1050 with 75Hz?
Thanks thanks thanks :-)

Best Regards,
Marcus

Please ask questions like this on support.intel.com. You'll get a faster response. This forum is for application coders.

Intel is trying to limit this Forum to discussions of graphics software development. Fair enough, it's their board and they can set the agenda.

If support.intel.com is giving you no joy, my suggestion is

Hi I know this is a intel forum but after days of searching you guys are the only place i can find with similair problems.

I have a 32 inch Samsung LCD TV and am supposed to be able to get 1368x768 resolution but keep getting 1024x768 and nothing either side of that, I have tried different ATI drivers but didn't help at all i ran moninfo and got this?!?!

I am actually running vista not 2000.

I am guessing this is due to the fact that in Device manager under monitors it is picking this up as a Generic NON PnP Monitor, is there anyway around this?

Thanks

Unfortunately, the ATI drivers are a mystery to me. You're better off going to an ATI forum. Sorry!

Hi, Aaron!
How to modify the driver so that to change the max resolution 1024x576 of my Lenovo Ideapad S10e (Intel GMA 945), for
example, to 1152x648 or 1232x696???
I tried everything with DTD Calculator and PowerStrip without any success!
Please for any help, idea and suggestion!
Thanks!
