A new Intel i5 Windows 7 machine is connected to a known-good VGA cable via a DVI adaptor to a 1600x900 LCD monitor.
The adapter unfortunately knocks out the pnp/edid bit so you have to specify the resolution yourself.
However, choosing 1600x900 from the menu and pressing apply, I can see that it's not right. Pressing the monitors OSD menu tells me that the monitor believes the signal it's receiving is actually 1440x900 not 1600x900. Which would definitely account for the distortion I'm seeing.
Is there a way to tell Windows to behave? :-) Has anyone experience of this oddness [and found a fix]?
