We have just purchased a 19" Iiyama ProLite E1900WS LCD wide screen monitor to replace a standard 17" flat screen. The wide screen requires a resolution of 1440x900 but this is not available on the integrated video card. To overcome this, I downloaded what I believed was the latest driver for the motherboard and installed it on the computer, but the required wide screen resolution was not available. I do not know what to do now to overcome this - everything on screen looks wrong. The monitor is currently set at 1280x1024 which was the maximum setting used on the previous 17" monitor. The highest resolution on the video card is 1600x1200. The computer is currently running Win98SE. The new monitor is VESA DDC2B compliant.
The computer has a K7SEM Motherboard, with Socket 462 with a Duron (K7) processor, a SiS730S Chipset with built in 128-bit Graphics accelerator and 1920x1200 16-bit colour.
I went on the SiS.com website to download the latest graphics driver for the SiS730 series and hoped this would work. I hoped their technical help section could assist when it didn't, but there isn't one as they sell direct to manufacturers.
What can I do now to sort this out?
