Hi,
I am having a problem being that my screen resolution will not under any circumstances get higher than 600 x 800px (even under unsupported resolutions) I have tried Pheonix etc and nothing will get it to the right resolution, with Pheonix I was able to get it higher but not right, my native resolution is 1920 x 1200 but I keep it at 1440 x 900.

I am currently running Windows 8 Build 7989/Windows 7 on Dual Boot I was having the same problem on windows 7 before but simply installed the latest ATI driver and the problem was fixed, the current driver is "Generic non-PnP Monitor"

Is there any way for me to get either a up-to-date driver or force the resolution?

Thank you all in advance.

You could try downloading the latest ATI driver and try installing it in Windows 7 compatibility mode.

I had something like this with a wifi adapter and it wouldn't install without changing compatibility to Windows 7, after that, it worked!

Also, you may or may not get it working due to the fact it's still an alpha build and it's not close to finalization.
