    I'm trying to set this monitor to a widescreen resolution... but it won't let me. All the resolutions I can pick are standard definitions; even the monitor's native resolution (1680x1050) is not selectable. I think this has something to do with the drivers; I could not install the driver from the CD because it apparently needs Vista, but from the specs of others with this monitor, it should work fine with Windows XP. Even downloading the driver straight from the website and trying to manually install it doesn't work. Can anyone help me?

    What graphics card do you have?

    You might want to fill out your system spec's to make it easier on everyone ;)

    No, wait, hold on. I found the problem and am now going shopping for a video card, among other things.

    OK, you saved me saying that HannsG drivers only support Vista but you should be able to amned the .inf file.
