Most monitors do not need additional drivers for them to function properly in Windows XP, Vista, and 7. If you are not able to set the monitors native resolution then look at your video card drivers. If these are not up to date, then you can see some very odd default resolutions.
Hannspree said that there is no need for a separate driver for XP and suggested I check for an updated driver for my old NVIDIA Video card... That was the answer. I now get the full 1400X900 resolution.
I think the first problem was that you did not load the drivers for the on-board video. And the problems you are having now may also be due to not loading drivers - in this case the chipset drivers for the motherboard. If you go to the vendors web site for the machine or motherboard, they should have all the drivers you need to get your machine running properly. If you give us some info on the brand of machine or mobo, we can then tell you where to get them.
You can use the .icm file from the Vista driver by manually going into driver update and pointing to the location wher you extracted it to. This however probaly won't fix your issue however, as the problem is more than likely that your videocard doesn't support the 1440 x 900 resolution.
