    ATI tells me it's supported on Vista starting version 7.2.. Installed the
    latest available (version 7.7) of their driver software, but still no
    1440*900 resolution for the X1650 on my Vista Ultimate X64.

    Any idea?

    Thanks!

    Does your monitor support that resolution?

    Yes. IIyama ProLite E1900WS. It runs 1440*900 on XP. So that is not the
    problem.

  4. If your monitor supports it, it would appear to be a driver issue. You
    might want to contact ATI tech support.

    It does (removed the X1650 and inserted a X550 which gave 1440*900 after
    detection and rebooting the system
    Just contacted ATI. Now just waiting for more info from them.

    Thanks!

    Fixed :)

    Although it seems that a drivers from the ATI website for the X1650 with ATI
    chipset is OK, it is NOT.
    This X1650 ATI chipset is manufactured by ASUS. And installing the drivers
    (**exactly** the same driver version - number as the drivers from the ATI
    website, so I was very unsure if this would be the solution for me..) from
    the ASUS website gives me 1440*900 (had to set the refreh from 75 to 60 to
    make it perfect).
    Learned ==> to go to the manufacturer (the one that created this
    specificcard)

    Thanks for helping!
