monitor conflict

Good morning..
 I am having a problem with my packard bell monitor...It seems i cannot find the drivers for it..it is a 1402s series made in 1994...The only drivers it will load are the plug and play drivers from the windows cdrom...And it is a 15 inch monitor...IT will only display in 640x480...and 600x800...I am using a voodoo 3 2000 graphics card, so i know i have enough graphics for higher, is it the size of the monitor or a driver or hardware conflict...Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.And by the way i have searched everywhere for the drivers for this monitor and cannot come with them...thank you

Just choose an alternative monitor from within window's suggestion list.
I personally have set up a standard SVGA 1024*768 monitor.
Now you'll be able to set up several combinations of screen res , color depth and frequency.

The PnP driver isn't that good since it often limits values though your monitor supports higher values (e.g. screen resolution, frequency etc.)

The Windows drivers will work with resolutions higher than 800*600, I suspect that you monitor is the limiting factor here.
Check out the manufacturers website or docs. I have a 15inch which goes up to 1024*768 which is what I have it set at...the Banshee I have can go up past 1600*1024 but the monitor itself can't, so my systems max res is 1024*768.
