I bought new monitor Samsung SyncMaster S24B420, connected via VGA (which have 1920x1200 60Hz native resolution) And I have problem that in Windwos 8 I can set only 1600x1200 as maximal resolution.

I tried install official monitor drivers, but I think that problem is in ATI driver because when I show "List All Modes" in "Advanced setting" for screen resolution I see that maximal is 1600x1200

But I can't find ATI driver, because they don't release W8 drivers they recommend use Microsft native driver "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM v1.1)"

My HW Lenovo R500 type 2732-32G

Thanks for help

What exactly is your question? The generic drivers are your only choice with the graphic you have. –  Ramhound Jan 2 '13 at 15:20
    
Questing is how I can set 1920x1200 resolution .. Graphic card can set 2048 x 1536 resolution for VGA output –  Kurtas Jan 2 '13 at 15:26
    
Have you tried installing the legacy AMD drivers for Win8? support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/catalystlegacywin8.aspx –  Lennart Jan 2 '13 at 15:28
    
@Lennart Yes I tried it, there is packed same generic driver for W8 "Display Driver (WDDM 1.1)" –  Kurtas Jan 2 '13 at 15:31
    
True, but it includes the Catalyst Control Center with which you can add HD resolutions. –  Lennart Jan 2 '13 at 15:32
