Windows 7: ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro Resolution Problem

ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro Resolution Problem

I have a Sony Bravia HDTV connected to ATI Radeon HD2600 Pro graphics card. Under XP, it would display 1280 x 720 no problems. Under Windows 7 RC, Sony shows "unsupported signal". Have installed ATI driver 8.612.0.0 dated 28 Aprl 2009.
I download and install V9.2 of the driver (9-4_vista64_win7_64_dd), but the driver that gets installed is 8.600 which is all rather confusing. Any help appreciated...Bam

==> Resolved - upgraded to a new card <===

checked refresh rate? bravia should probably be 60hz

control panel -> screen resoultion -> right click monitor you want adjsuted -> properties.

I got HD4870 and 2 monitors - one is my main display 22' samsung and my 32' bravia is connected as a secondary.
each has a differnet resoulotion and I constantly switch betweem them and extended mode.

7 works very very very well in this setup. perfect actually.
winkey+p switch between monitors (aweseme for me)
shift+winkey+left/right arrow - move open app to other monitor in extended mode (yes!).

using 8.612.0.0 driver from windows update (the one from ati worked fine before too)

hope this helps.

i love 7.
