    Hi, I connect an HP v220 monitor to a Dell Latitude D620 laptop running Windows XP Professional SP2.

    When I first connected the two devices together they set up automatically and I had correct resolution on the new monitor. Now approximately 6 months later the monitor has reverted to a maximum 1024x768 resolution and I am unable to adjust to the preferred 1680x1050.

    I have updated the laptop video driver and have installed the HP monitor driver and still no luck.

    Anyone have any other ideas? Many thanks.

    After uninstalling the monitor and all drivers associated with it I also upgraded the Bios driver. I now have access to higher resolution options. However I can't use the preferred ratio of 1680 x 1050. The closest I can get is 1280 X 768 which looks better than 1600 x 1200.

    Anyone know how I can get the 1680 x 1050 option to come up?
