Screen Resolution ML110 Server 2008

I have a HPML110 G5 server which had wnidows 2003 running.
I upgraded to Windows Server 208 Foundation on a blank disk, installed the necessary drivers from the HP Website, but the maximum screen resolution is only 1024 x 768.

The driver loaded is Matrox Graphics Dated 30/01/2008 Version 5.96.6.6

Any ideas as to how to increase the screen resolution ?

First, usually monitors connected to servers are 15" LCD's that only have a native resolution of 1024x768, so for most situations the setting you have is correct.

If your display does support a higher resolution, make sure that it is connected directly to the server, not via a KMS switch in between (which is also a common setup in a server room). KMS switches often have problems passing the monitor's EDID info on to the server and it's OS, and then, because the OS doesn't know what the display supports, it'll use a lower setting which usually works.

The monitor does support higher resolution. It is the same monitor (17") when I was running Server 2003 and the resolution was running at 1280 x 1024. The monitor is connected directly to the server.
