I have hp compaq nx7000 bussiness notebook with ati radeon 9200 and xp pro with all service packs. I cannot get 2216w to display in native resolution 1680x1050 even though it is the very same resolution as on my notebook display. (no issues with 22'Flatron..)
Display resolution in the control panel do not work. Reinstalled ATi but to no avail. Acer driver is not no cd and what I downloaded my windows does not know what to do with it (file type not recognized).
Strangely, just once after some fiddling with the display resolution I got it working. Cannot repeat the stunt now however hard I try. I connected a different notebook and since then I cannot get the 22" monitor display native res. VERY annoying.
What can I do except for returning the monitor soon?
Possibly this will help. I have installed two1680x1050 LCD screens this past year: your 2216W model on a new PC, and a similar model from another maker on my wife's older HP PC.
Mine worked at the native resolution, my wife's did not. Difference: the age of the computer's (actually Windows XP's) native software for monitors. I went to Control Panel, Display, Advanced, and slid the left-hand slider control to view the various resolutions available. On the newer computer, the highest resolution choice was 1680x1050. On the older computer, the choice was not given. The choices stopped somewhere areound 1270 by 1080.
Solution was to download the newer driver from (as I recall) the computer manufacturer's website, using their regular download/update channel. That gave my wife's older computer the necessary top-end resolution. It was not something the monitor manufacturer could have fixed.

1600X900 is a higher resolution than that of 1280X1024. Therefore 1600X900 is a better resolution. If you would like to run at the lower resolution simply right click your desktop screen and click properties. Then on the settings tab use the slider bar to adjust the resolution. Lower to the left and higher to the right. If the desired resolution is unavailable then you could try downloading and installing the latest drivers for your graphics card installed in your computer.
Your card will either be AMD/ATI Radeon or Nvidia. You will need the model number of the graphics card, the latest drivers may increase resolution support for your card.
Also look on the bottom right hand side of your screen for an Nvidia Control Panel logo in green. Right click it and select the option to "change screen resolution" This may provide you with additional resolution options.
The screen resolution and bit color is controlled by the video driver NOT by a driver for the monitor. Install the correct video driver for your video card and you will be able to increase the screen resolution to over 1024 X 768 and bit color to at least 32 bits.
