Anyone using Sun 22" Widescreen monitors?
I am having terrible trouble with these monitors not working at their optimum resoloution on older PC's. On new PC's (EG Core 2 Duo / Quad) they work fine but on anything older they do not display correctly when set to the native res of 1680x1050.
It does not really make sense to me!

Maybe the older PCs were built before widescreens became common place, and so don't have the correct resolution built into them?

It could be down to the graphics card not supporting that resolution - it is a very high res, and if those machines have older graphics cards, it is very possible they don't have it available.

But that's the wierd thing - they do seem to have it available - it gives the option in windows to choose 1680 x 1050?
For example if I plug a viewsonic 22" in instead, I can run that at 1680x1050 and it works fine, plug the Sun back in and hey presto the image doesnt fit the screen!

Are there any display drivers available to install?

@Butuz: I don't think you really have a problem... you're just showing off that you have such nice monitors
Have you tried altering the colour depth or refresh rate?

Are you using a KVM? If so, select the PC before you turn it on. I've found that PCs can only generate a 1680x1050 output if they are "connected" to the monitor when they boot up. If I am on the other PC at the time, the best they can do is a big 4:3.
