All I know is that Windows Update offered me an optional update that said it was specifically for that driver. Unfortunately I don't know what the version was before the update, nor did I check to see if the update installed successfully.

I agree, nice comprehensive answer - this is totally worth the +50 you're getting. And for the record, the driver I had was not the one originally bundled with Windows 7 but one that I received through Windows Update.

comment Getting proper resolution with Windows 7 and older monitor
@and31415 I'm asked to approve about 4 different apps when I log in. The utility I spoke of is called GfxUI.exe and it's located in Windows\System32. The resolution seems to be holding. TotalDTDCount is still 0. Monitor Asset Manager is now erroring out when I start it so I'm unable to rerun those tests.

@and31415 I tried the Intel utility that was installed with the driver and it let me create a 1280x1024 profile. Once I unchecked the "Hide modes" checkbox I was allowed to choose it, and it's working! Let's see if it will hold this time.

@and31415 the driver version reported in driver properties is 8.15.10.2869. Regedit shows 5 DTD entries but TotalDTDCount is 0. Results from Monitor Asset Manager are at pastebin.com/XZMtc7ti pastebin.com/ih89yB4V and pastebin.com/qEatJDNZ.
