Can't set 1680x1050 resolution on viewsonic monitor

\015 Hello, I have a laptop and a viewsonic monitor attached. I can not set the best resolution that is prompted by the monitor 1680x1050. The resolution is not listed. I tried to install the drivers from CD but this didn't work. I also installed the drivers from official site of viewsonic - same result. \015\012\015\012Can you please suggest a solution!\015

Answers :

I found the solution for my problem.
Initially I thought it's a monitor problem and was trying to find the drivers for it.
The problems is not with my monitor but with the video adapter I use.

My video adapter has a intel chipset (Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family). Apparently the driver that I was using was quite old.

The only thing I had to do is:
1. Download the latest video adapter driver
2. Uninstall the current video adapter driver
3. Restart the system (Windows XP)
4. Install the new driver.
5. Restart the system.
