Monitor

OK, Let me try again.  I have a monitor made by a company which no longer seems to be around.  It's an IOComm SVGA monitor.  But I can't run it at anything better than 400x600 resolution.  This is perplexing.  It is a better monitor than that. . . and considering that I was able to do better in Windows 3.1 with a Trident card, I would hope that I could do better with my S3 Trio64V+ card that I have now.  And the standard windows SVGA driver doesn't work.  At all. All I get with that is a bunch of horizontal lines.  Help me please.  Is there somewhere that either makes custom drivers, or a way to get a user defined driver?  I do have the spectulations on the monitor and they may be found in my previous question if you really want them.  Thanks

If you download the drivers from the S3 site,
there is an utility for setting the monitor refresh rates that lets you test those rates immediately.
Run this program and adjust the rates for your monitor, then install the Windows drivers for your card and after that you should be able to use the supported resolutions of your monitor.

The S3 site is http://www.s3.com
select the drivers area from the homepage and download the driver and utilities for your card.

Hope this will help.
