I just updated to windows 8 and I'm running bootcamp.

The maximum resolution setting for my external monitor under Windows 8 is 1440 x 900. On Windows 7 I had 1920 x (I forget).

I tried updating the display driver (BenQ), but that did nothing.

Does anyone know how to increase my resolution?

Have you tried updating your GPU driver? BenQ sounds like the name of your display, but your GPU would be something like Intel, AMD, or Nvidia. – Louis Aug 17 '12 at 1:06

I went into OSX mountain lion and re-did the bootcamp software. I think that overwrote the drivers.

All is well now with my display. The track pad doesn't work, and I have some language problems, but at least I'm getting the full resolution.
