New Samsung 245/bw monitor w/native resolution of 1920x1200

Hi,
I have a Toshiba M35-S320 laptop with the Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 video card with a single VGA monitor connection..
The Samsung monitor has both VGA also called D-Sub? and a DVI port. The native mode resolution for it is 1920x1200.
My problem is that I can not raise the resolution passed 1600x1200. The result is that I have about 2 inches of unusable screen on each side of the monitor. Is there any way for me to gain full access to the entire screen short of buying a new laptop. I was told that I could not change/upgrade the video card in the laptop to get the screen resolution I need.

Your help would be greatly appreciated,

Doug

    I forgot to say that the Samsung 245/bw is a 24 inch LCD and that the laptop is running XP. The frequency of the video card is already 60hz and I have not change it. When I go into the Display option within the Control Panel the max I can boost the resolution to is 1600x1200. I did some digging and apparently the video card will support two monitors and when I select the Samsung 245/BW it allows me to pick a higher resolution of 1920x1448 just not 1920x1200.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks for trying! According to the documentation for the monitor it's native mode is 1920x1200. I am not arbitrarily picking this resolution. The other issue I stated earlier is that I am not getting the use of the full screen. There is approximately 2 inches of screen to the right and to the left that I cannot access. It is black. I am not talking about the plastic border around the screen but the actual screen itself. The screen is 24 inches wide but the picture is only 22 inches wide. My goal is to find out if it is a physical restriction of the video/graphics card or some switch that I did not set correctly.

    Regards,

    Doug

Ensure that your video setting is at 60hz when at 1920x1200. According to the specs of your monitor, the freq from the video card might be set to something higher.

Have a new 23 inch samsung monitor that requires res 1920x1080


The problem is the cable connection to the video card.
When using the DVI output of the FX 5500, the maximum screen resolution that you can select is 1280 x 1024.

But, if you use the Analog (VGA) output, the card will support resolutions up to 2048 x 1536, which should be ok.

Nvidia fx 5200


The only time that this can happen is if the driver is not installed correctly, as on install you are normally asked if you want to activate support for dual monitors, so if you havent already, uninstall the card driver, restart and install driver again from the cd or from the NVIDIA website. http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71.html If you have already tried this my apologies.
