I can't get the resolution to 1440x900 on a HP L1908wi monitor. I've been to the Intel website and they provide an updated driver to address this issue on this chipset but when I install it I still don't get the correct resolution.
IntelŪ 82945G Express ChipsetIntelŪ Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows* XP
Anyone got one of these boards running this resolution?
Seeing as its intel you using the intel util to set the refresh rate at 60hz and at that resolution as apposed to display settings ?
As per specs page
1440 x 900 @ 60 Hz
should look something like below ignoring the green circles
If that does not work I re call having to install the drivers / inf files for the monitor instead of windows just detecting the monitor as a regular plug and play device to install the relevant files / drivers for the specific model of monitor you have and that helps

I've installed the driver for the monitor and that now appears and i've followed the detailed instructions for installing the updated intel driver which did bring up a few more options but not the one i'm after.
I've got it set to 60Hz in the intel control panel but still no joy
instead of updating it using the update package i would remove it totally , reboot and download the latest graphics card / intel driver and re install it and try again - may have to reboot again to register the drivers before trying again possibly ?
Is it not showing the resolution up or what exactly ?
Also as per spec page on link above posted by cpltd
I would play around with the on screen controls ref resolution / refresh rate etc

I've downloaded the latest driver here IntelŪ 82945G Express Chipset*IntelŪ Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows* XP and it's supposed to resolve this issue.
After I've installed it I still don't see 1440x900
I'm just in the process of reinstalling Windows so we'll see what happens.

latest inf files etc from the above site
also you using thin client ?
if so then image connect

No this is a desktop but we are using them on another 30 thin client units and they're fine.also you using thin client ?
This is becoming a bit of a hair puller, I've found another link here so I'll try this.

Well I think i've reached the end of the road here. I've been on to Intel and tried everything, updated BIOS different VGA driver, with the monitor driver without the monitor driver but nothing has worked.
In the end all Intel could tell me was that it worked for them in testing
This is where I might go next but I don't have any low profile cards to try so i'll need to get one.
•Two PCI Conventional* bus add-in card connectorsI'll put a quote in your inbox cookie_monster is it pci express or agp?
•One PCI Express* x1 bus add-in card connectors

I have just been onto Stone and they say someone else is having this issue so they're looking into it with Intel.
if its onboard graphics am wondering if there are any bios updates you could apply that may help ?
