Samsung 19" 943bwx.  +  

Intel Q35 integrated (i think - not at work at th mo. will check tomorrow and update if necessary). My understanding is they are all fairly similar tho...


My problem is that it wont do native 1440x900. So Im using 1280x1024 and its strectched and fuzzy - but the best I can get.


For starters, this is my new office PC. I did not chose the components... Screen is very nice but it seems the integrated controller (or drivers) are not set up for widescreen.

Options include vastly superior resolution, just not in the widescreen aspect I am after.


I have updated the drivers. did not work.

I have updated with an intel fix (when I was at work, can't find the link now tho) that had alternative drivers for this issue. Did not work.

Does anyone have any (simple if possible) solutions?

cheers guys

Problem solved.

I updated the drivers - no luck
Ran the intel fix - no luck

stumbled onto some guys guide how to fix - it was awesome! dont have the link on me.

Invloved getting the normal driver .zip from intel, and altering one of the .nfo files manually to enter the resolution you were after.

works a treat! perfect native resolution for my screen

I have the article on my favourites at work, so if anyone needs the fix reply, and Im sure I can bring it home some day

1440x900 seems to be a common issue for intel drivers.  Seen it on a few of the newer toshy satelites with intel graphics.
