    widescreen


    I just bought a 19in widescreen monitor and can not get the 1440x900 with
    Vista.. Yes I installed the monitor driver.

    Re: widescreen

    I assume that you when you say monitor driver that you are referring to the
    ATI graphics card drivers for Vista from the following link

    https://support.ati.com/ics/support/...&folderID=5712

    Re: widescreen

    I do not have an ATI card so I am not sure how you get to the Custom
    Resolutions option or how you tell it you have a flat screen monitor in case
    it thinks you have something else.
    What resolution options does the driver give you?
    Have you tried any other widescreen options like 1280x720?
    Does Device manager properly identify the monitor make?
