I tried powerstrip and couldn't get it to enable the correct resolution
either. Maybe I don't know how to use it properly, but I could never change
the resolution to what it should have been. I wrote the new driver for the
monitor, but NVidia just won't pick up the new, correct info. The old info
was correct anyway. I wonder if they will fix the problem. They should
pick up the resolution from the plug and play monitor and apply it, even if
it isn't one of the default resolutions...or at least that is what NVidia
claims on their site. I'm wondering how this computer can be sold as Vista
Premium ready when it won't support the monitor sent with the computer.
I'll try the other program you suggested. thanks
