Hi everyone,
I've just bought myself a new Toshiba 27WL55 LCD tv monitor, it's a lovely monitor but some people (myself included) are having trouble getting 1280 x 720 when using dvi, I can only get 1024 x 720 using my Mac Mini.
People have found that by getting the latest drivers for their video cards usually sorts out the problem so I tried downloading them from the Apple site but it didn't fix the problem. So basically, I know the monitor can display 1280 x 720 but is there a way of forcing the Mac Mini to use it?
Thanks,
warhorse

If the resolution doesn't show up in system preferences > displays...try DisplayConfigX http://www.3dexpress.de/
