monitor misdentified in Win 7

I have a Dell D630 laptop that has an integrated Intel graphics card (965 Express series) connected to a Samsung 213T monitor. It is correctly identified in the device manager, but when I attempt to set the resolution in the control panel, it identifies it as a HP L1955, limiting the resolution to 1280 x 1024 rather than the 1200 x 1600 native resolution for the monitor.  I am connecting to it through Dell's docking stations and using a flip kvm.  Why would it be identified differently than shown in the device manager?  This laptop has never been connected to a HP L1955.

Does it work if you bypass the kvm?

Hi,

I believe the FLIP KVM does not pass-thru the DCC information the computer usually uses to negotiate capabilities with the monitor.

You may have to manually upgrade the driver and force it to use a Flat Panel with the resolution you have.

Alternatively, change your KVM to one that supports DCC?

Regards,


RobMobility.
