Windows 7: How to get the 1360x768 with my ATI Radeon 9000

How to get the 1360x768 with my ATI Radeon 9000

I've install Windows 7, but I cannot get the resolution of 1360x768 for my Acer monitor.

In XP (i'm in XP right now) i've just install the catalyst driver for XP and i've got the 1360x768.

But in Windows 7 (it's not important to get or not the Aero) I cannot get higher than 1024x768, and it's not look good on my monitor.

How can I just enable the 1360x768 resolution in Windows 7? And please, I cannot buy a new card... no money for that right now. So i need to live with this old card. But I cannot imagine that in Windows7 I cannot get the 1360x768 but in XP i can!

(i'm waiting to solve this problem to re-install again my Windows 7 brand new in the box)

I've found this "solution" but I have no idea if it's working or not (last post on page 2) (Enable Aero ATI Radeon 9000 128 MB ??)

Thanks to help me

Well,
I use nVidia so that would be my latest experience, but I still have a ati 1600 pro in use. Screen res is a function of whatever vid driver your using. Try uninstalling all ati software and use the Windows 7 driver for vid. See what you get. Is it possible you are using the xp ati driver on Windows 7? Its possible that there are no Windows 7 drivers for that card, its old.

I imagine that the limited resolution choices follow from running the generic VGA drivers.

AMD/ATI doesn't list any Vista or Windows 7 drivers for that card. It may be possible to get the XP drivers running on it. What happens if you set the compatibility mode to XP on the XP driver installer?

The link that you give looks a bit crazy. I expect that it may be possible to get the card working in Windows 7, but not with Aero Glass effects.

Just thought i would answer this question, and yes i know the post is old, but it may help other people in fixing a stupid problem that ATI dont seem to care about. It took me a long long time to figure this out, weeks, months, probably over a year.

The problem is with all driver versions 10 and over, i worked out that the only drivers that allow me to select 1360x768 on my TV are version 9.12, now this may not be the case for everyone, but its certainly what my problem is. I have tried many drivers and find 9.12 are the latest ones i can use to get that resolution.

Anyway, theres your solution, use older drivers till you find one that works for you, yours may be different to mine, but i honestly think the problem was introduced into version 10 and above.

Good luck.

I have an older system with an ATI 9200 card in it, and the latest ATI driver I could get to work is Catalyst 6.11 -- from 2006.

And, even then, I had to be sure to install ONLY the drivers, as installing Catalyst Control Center crashed my XP system.

I have a solution! I am using Acer X193HQ at work with Intel G31 onboard graphics and I too searched the entire internet and finally found a solution!

Unfortunately, the solution sits in my Office PC and am at home now!

Will definitely update here from office first thing tomorrow morning!

Until then, just get yourself DTD Calculator from here: clever technologies - products - clever freeware - Home to DTDCalculator

Just wait, I'll post what you need to do. Its a permanent solution (as long as you don't uninstall your graphics driver / monitor driver).

This works for sure on Intel onboard graphics, but dunno for ATI / nvidia. And I don't see any reason why it shouldn't.

Fix for 1366x768 in Windows

Hi!

Just as I promised, here's the fix:

0. UPDATE: According to n0rthstar, this method does NOT work with non- intel graphics chips.

1. Download and install DTD Calculator from : clever technologies - products - clever freeware - Home to DTDCalculator

2. Start DTD Calculator and fill in the values on the left side as shown in the attachment.

3. After filling up the values, go to the Registry hack tab. There, click on More to add a row and then in the newly added row, click on Get Calculated.

4. The Registry Hack screen should have DTD1 as the calculated value. Now, click on Write DTDs to registry and reboot when prompted.

5. After you reboot, go to your favorite location of changing resolutions and you should have 1366x768 @ 60 Hz as an option and you can safely switch to it.

A few notes though:

a) I have tried this with Acer X193HQ which has native resolution of 1366x768. You will have to modify the left side values that I have filled in DTD calculator for getting 1360x768.

b) If you do modify the parameters on the right hand side, please do so at your own risk. I can't guarantee that they will be correct for your monitor and there is a chance that you may spoil your monitor.

Really hope this helps!

This doesnt work on none intel chips because when you click "get calculated" it states "there is no intel chip present" as i have just tried this.

So this is a no go for the original topic of "How to get the 1360x768 with my ATI Radeon"

Thanks for trying though, was worth a go. I wonder if there is another tool like this to enable 1360x760 on later ATI drivers, because i would like to use newer ones myself, i tried Powerstrip but that didnt do anything for me. Ah well, back to using old drivers till ATI pull their finger out, i know i wont be buying another ATI card, ever.

Hi n0rthstar

that it didn't work for you. I'll try to get some info as it shouldn't be that hard to add a custom resolution.

Just a heads up:

How to add custom resolutions on ATI without 3rd party programs? - Futuremark / YouGamers Forums

Will go home and check if its still valid as its a pretty old tweak (2006).
