Thanks for the suggestion. Just had a chance to try it today. Didn't help. Still limited to a max of 1280 x 720.

Ok, so I don't know what has changed... I haven't done any updates to anything... but today it is working. Not without playing with some settings, though.

I have to go into the ATI Catalyst Control Center and take off the "Use Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) or driver defaults", then manually set 1440x900 @ 60 Hz.

Problem is, I tried this before already... and 1440x900 was not available in the list to select. So no clue what has happened.

Course, 20 bucks says it breaks next time I'm down here....

Yup, knew it was too good to be true. Broke again. 1440x900 is not available again, however, I can get it to let me set it a little higher than 1280x720... I can get to 1280x768. Not a lot, but it's something....
