I hooked an old Compaq Presario running Windows XP to an Acer 20" monitor capable of 1680x1050 resolution, because I need Windows to get into work from home and I want the screen real estate. But Windows doesn't give me any widescreen resolution options for the display. All the web searching I've done says update the driver (which I have done), or the hardware won't support widescreen. But if I boot up in Ubuntu, I get full 1680x1050 glory! So surely there must be a Windows driver out there somewhere that'll make this work. Right? Does anybody have any ideas?
Chipset is VIA/SG3 UniChrome IGP. Current driver version is 126.96.36.199, dated 3/9/2005. (U.S. date format, I believe -- m/d/y)
Edit: The machine is a Compaq Presario SR1230NX. Can't get the motherboard info just now.
