Not a solution...

1680 x 1050 option is simply not there in the settings.

Only shows 1600 x 900 or 1600 x 1200. Neither are correct for this monitor which states on the box it's supposed to be 1680 x 1050.

During setup, got a "INput not supported" message

Reboot the computer and enter into Safe Mode through pressing F8 repeatedly on the keyboard.

If Windows will not come up, then you have to access the system through system restore.

In windows xp, it's c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

In windows vista, it's c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

This is done through Safe Mode with command prompt or command prompt; depending on the operating system.
