I have a Philips Freevents X51 laptop and a separate 19" Dell Ultra sharp monitor. When I try to increase the resolution on the Dell to the recommended 1280 x 1024 there is no option to do this in windows (winxp). I have installed the driver for the Dell. The chipset in the laptop is an Intel GM/GME, 910GML, 915GM chipset, and I have read somewhere that this chipset "caps" the resolution at 1024 x 768.
I have installed the most up to date driver from the intel website.
Any advice greatly appreciated
