I sort of got side tracked with other life issues, but yes it worked
when enabled the driver in the Restricted Drivers Manager. I'm getting
1600 x 1200 with vga. I can't change to the DVI cable because of my
dexterity but I'll get someone to do it when they drop by.
How do I tell if the cable that came with the monitor is dual-link DVI?
And once on DVI, what do I have to do to get it to 1920 x 1200?
By the way it looks pretty dam good now.
