    Monitor Resolution


    Hi i have a 22 inch screen

    In windows 7 i get 1680x1050 pixel resolution. But with this new consumer preview it will only allow me 1280x1024. I went to change it but thats the only Resolution i can get. Is there something else i could do to fix this. This is in the help guide.

    20- and 22-inch widescreen monitors 1680 1050
