Question about Nvidia G-Force FX5200 256M DDR 8X AGP Graphic Card
This card (and many more FX-models) support 1600 x 1200 pixels on DVI. Not 1680 x 1050 however this is actually less. It does on the VGA port but not with DVI, which I prefer of course.
But it does work on Linux !! (Both Ubuntu and Mandriva) So it is possible, why not in Windows? Nvidia configuration refuses to create manually special resolutions. However after I tried the refused configuration (!) I get once a crisp and clear 1600 x 1050 screen (=not supported resolution) with small black borders but with a 1680 x 1050 desktop in it which I can shift left and right by hitting both sides with the cursor. How can I get the remaining 80 pixels ???
Sounds like an issue i get but when using dual monitors. Most likeley windows just doesnt support that resolution with DVI. As you stated.
There may be some update but most likely not. There probably isnt a solution really.
Now, if the background image is not set to strech or handle that then you need to use a different background.
Some default back ground images for windows arent set to go to a certain size or dont resize correctly.
Try opening the display settings and tinker a bit if you havent already.
