I have a Tecra M3 laptop. It has an nVidia graphics adapter, “GeForce Go 6200 TE 64M/6600 TE 128M” to be exact. I have a Dell 2005fpw flat panel display, with a native resolution of 1680×1050. The graphics adapter does an ungodly number of tricks I don’t need (who needs software keystoning on an LCD?), but does not offer 1680×1050 as an option. It offers 1600×1200 and even higher, but not the one I need.
In a previous situation like this, I installed some scary hacked gamer video drivers, and they worked great. This time, I tried OmegaDrivers.net, which claims to provide nVidia drivers with more options for resolutions. No luck.
In fact, after installing the omega drivers, 1600×1200 wasn’t even an option, but now 1440×900 is. Huh? Uninstalling all the drivers and re-installing the official ones from Toshiba didn’t get me back my 1600×1200. Does anyone have any advice for how to get a supposedly high-end graphics adapter to do something simple like drive a very popular flat panel display?
