Windows 7: Dell Monitor problems

Dell Monitor problems

Hi all,
I received my copy of Windows 7 on Monday, which was nice I was expecting it to get lost an undelivered pile of letters somewhere.

Anyway, Iím weighing up whether to go ahead with the instillation now or not.

Iíve got a Dell 19Ē SE198WFP monitor. Itís running at 1440x900 resolution with Vista using an ATI HD3850 graphics card. Iíve been getting together some Windows 7 drivers ready for the install but canít find any for the monitor.

Dell has started rolling out Windows 7 drivers, but it doesnít appear to be supporting my monitor (yet). Dell Monitor Drivers and Downloads

The Windows 7 compatibility centre isnít live yet either.

What would people suggest, as I donít want to be left with an odd resolution.
Is there a generic 19Ē driver which would work?

I played around with a RC of Windows 7, all be it on a different very basic PC, but using the same monitor and had no joy installing the Vista drivers.

Can anyone be any help?

hi thedecline, and weclome to the best forum on the planet (possibly),

the good news is that your monitor should work fine without a specific driver. windows 7 will find a suitable one for your display.

the graphics driver is far more important.

enjoy your new os!

Hi, thanks very much for the advice.
ATI have already issued their Windows 7 drivers so hopefully will be well.
