VGA port or other?

VGA port... that is all I can utilize because of the card itself

Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit
Solution for Windows 7 1680x1050 Monitor Wide Screen

Hi all,
i found a SOLUTION for all of you (i hope) that don't have a native support resolution for your wide screen 22" or similar under W7.
I have a Asus vw223d Lcd and when i tryied to have resolution 1680x1050 the panel didn't dispaly me the possibility, only 1600x1200 or similar but NO the 1680x1050.
So i tryied all the possible (show hidden res or from nvidia control panel, etc...) to put it in my screen resolution, an at the end i fount it in the right way!
I have a Sli system Nvidia gtx260 running under Windows 7 64bit Ultimate and the problem was that in game i coudn't recognize the resolution and the refresh rate correctly, so i tried to EDIT a generic driver for my monitor adding the resolution i needed. Here the text :

Signature = "$CHICAGO$"
Class = Monitor
ClassGUID = {4d36e96e-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
Provider = %MFG%

%MFG% = MonMfg, NT, NTAMD64

%MODEL% = Mon.Install,Monitor\ACI22B1

%MODEL% = Mon.Install,Monitor\ACI22B1

%MODEL% = Mon.Install,Monitor\ACI22B1

AddReg = Mon.AddReg,RES,DPMS





MODEL = "vw223d"

i SAVE it (name.INF) and i FORCE the installation driver from COMPUTER MANAGE (i don't know if the transaltion from italian is correct!)

After that i could see the resolution below 1680x1050 and works properly also in games like Wow or Resident Evil 5 .

Hope to be helpful

Samsung Monitor Native Resolution Solution!

System: HP dv7t quad laptop with nvidia 230m
OS: Windows 7
Monitor: Samsung T220HD Analog 1680x1050 native

I was having similar problem with my samsung trying to get the hp laptop with nvidia to accept 1680x1050 as a custom resolution in nvidia's control panel. No matter what I could not get higher then 1600x1050, test, unsupported, does not work at this time.

I went on a hunt and found drivers on samsung's website by searching in their support department. here @ Downloads SAMSUNG

Just enter your model number for example "T220" and download the drivers for your monitor. For the T220 the only driver they had was a windows 98 through vista version. Even though I am using windows 7 I figured I would try to install it anyway. And it worked fine, 1680x1050 perfectly. After the driver was installed I went to nvidia settings, created a 1680x1050 resoluion, test, works great resolution accepted, go to monitor resolution set to 1680x1050. walah!


For samsung native resolution monitor issues

1 go to samsungs site and download driver for your monitor.
2 install driver for your monitor
3 go to nvidia resolution settings
4 create monitor resolution
5 set monitor resolution
