Windows 7: Resolution

Resolution

I am completely stumped. I have an ATI HD 4650. I have tried both the drivers, one from the ATI website, and the second from windows update. I have a toshiba 22" monitor, that windows detects as Generic Non-Pnp. Every time I try to change the resolution to anything other than 1024x768, I end up with a black screen which eventually gets returned back to 1024.

It doesn't shot a recommended resolution in windows 7, my resolution worked fine in windows XP. I can't figure this out, any advice on where to go from here would be great. I am running Build 7100.

Please do not post the same post in multiple forums. I have deleted all the others and will let this one stay for answers. Consider this your only warning.

Yeah, you'll need to find Windows 7 / Vista drivers for your monitor - since it is being detected as a non plug-and-play, Windows is playing it safely and not allowing resolutions above 1024 x 768.

At least, that is my guess - what is the model number of the monitor?

Also, use the My System Specs link underneath your user name on the left to fill in your system completely....

Lol - in retrospect, I suppose this *does* belong in drivers instead of here. I am moving it there now.

It is a Toshiba 19lv505. I have looked all over their site for drivers for my monitor, no such luck. Also I tried to let windows find one, with no such luck. I just made this account, I will update my specs now.

Sorry it is a Toshiba not Samsung

Is this it? Toshiba | 19LV505: 18.9" Diagonal LCD HDTV/DVD Combo

Kewl - that is it - so which interface are you using to connect your video card to it?
