How can i get 1366 x 768 resolution (720p) from t42 laptop?

2008-05-03, 20:58 PM
Hi,
 
I'm trying to connect my thinkpad t42 laptop using a vga cable to my samsung lcd tv. my lcd tv has a native resolution of 1366 x 768. However, when i go to display properties in my video setting, i can only select 1024 x 768 for my lcd tv  (basically i only get 4:3 resolution options, i dont get any 16:9 resolution options). i've updated all my drivers - dont all windows and thinkvantage updates but absolutely cannot get the output resolution via vga cable to my lcd tv to be 1366 x 768.
 
Does anyone have any suggestions or has anyone had any luck solving this issue?
 
Thanks!

do your laptop use the ATI graphics card ATI 9600??? if so then you should find the catalyst drivers

using this driver you should have more flexibility in choosing widescreen resolution....

Hello,
Did you check Samsung's support web site to see if the provide a device driver (it may be called a monitor profile information file) for your Samsung LCD TV with 1366×768 (720p) resolution?  If so, did installing that help?
