I have a HP Elite 9040n desktop, with a Geforce GT 240 video card, and a Samsung SyncMaster 931b monitor.
My problem is when I use a DVI cable, I only get 3 resolution options of 800x600, 1024x768, and 1280x720. But if I use a VGA cable with a DVI adapter there are a bunch of options and the recommended resolution of 1280x1024.
I have updated my monitors drivers
from samsung's website, and the video card drivers from Nvidia.
One thing I noticed before I updated my monitor drivers in the screen resolution window under display it listed the monitor as a generic non PnP monitor, now it says display device on: DVI
Anyways I want to figure out how to get a 1280x1024 resolution using the the DVI cable, so i can take advantage of the better graphics - instead of using an adapter... Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance
