Will a 20" HD 1600x900 widescreen flat panel work with my R52?

Hello,

 

LCD screen on my thinkpad has gone bad and I am trying to figure out if my R52 with Intel 915GM/GMS, 910 GML Express chipset will work with a 1600x900 widescreen external monitor. 

 

I checked "display all modes" and this resolution is not listed. I have already updated to the latest BIOS and graphics driver. 

 

Any reliable options to help me make a buy/no buy decision on the external monitor?

 

Thanks.

i don't think it will work, the ATI chipset works with some tweaking, but the driver for the intel don't support that resolution nor did they update it to make it work.

When you say it will not work, do you mean

- I will get a blank screen OR

- a stretched image, OR

- a 4:3 image with the black bands on the side?

 

I have seen folks discussing powerstrip on forums. Does this help?

 

Thanks.
