Bill, I'm not sure why you're taking such a defensive and hostile tone in this forum. The question is being posted to help resolve and issue, not to place blame. There's no reason for you to behave this way when speaking with other adults (assuming you are one).

I'm not trying to attack or demean you, I just want you to be aware that your reaction to this question was innapropriate.

So get on viewsonic to fix the situation

That and depending on the video card being used there should be an option to
allow using more resolutions. Some cards have more support for this than
others. You can usually make use of a more recent model number monitor that
has the same features. Dell's 2405FPW isn't "supported" in Vista. But
using the most recent model number for the equivalent monitor works fine.
The "driver" for a monitor isn't really an actual driver in most cases.
It's a set of configuration parameters in an .inf file

Really though, lay the blame where it belongs. On YOU for not checking
hardware compatibility before upgrading.

Windows 2008 - No Widescreen Support
We have only widescreen monitors now and I'm installing 2008. I'm amazed that
it doesn't seem to have generic support for widescreens and only goes up to
1280x1024. Also, there seems to be no provsion to prevent the screen from
stretching the none widescreen image thus distorting it
We have viewsonics and their drivers do not run on 2008 so I'm now stuck
with this horrible to read image on the screen
Does anyone know of a way around this
Many thanks

One reason you won't find much support (from MS or Vendors) for things like
graphics and sound is that a presumption is that most users will use the
server OS on machines that are used as servers; where good graphics and
sound are rarely used. I'm running 2008 as my desktop OS as after trying
all the OS versons. 2008 is (too me) noticably crisper. While some drivers
are available for 2008 (very few though) often you can get a vista driver to
work. I wouldn't expect to see much support directly for '08 in many areas.
In fact, in areas where you expect to see strong support it is often
lacking. For example, I can't 2008 on a RAID 10 array with the new AMD
Chipset on a new ASUS board because 2008 will only let you use certified
drivers and there are none (That I can find after weeks of searching and
trying anything remotly close). I'm dual booting now so I can get
performance when I need it and play games when I want to

Good luck on your search

Hello James,

Basically this is the vendors job. He has to provide drivers for all his
functionality. With MS you get a bunch of drivers so you can work.
