I'm setting up a Compaq 6710b laptop for a new user, but I've ran into an annoying problem that will be sure to come back to me. I'm only able to choose one widescreen resolution -- 1680x1050. That's just a bit too high for this laptop, even for me, so I know the user will flip out. The only other available resolutions below that start at 1280x1024. I'd like to have it display at 1440x900, but I've not been able to.
I've changed the registry value in HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\VIDEO\ but that didn't work. Apart from some small application (which I'd prefer not to use) I'm not sure what else to do. All drivers are up-to-date.
