RE: Override display/desktop default resolution
Thank you for your prompt reply.
The Samsung LCD monitor is the Analog SyncMaster 770TFT.
I did install the corresponding drivers for the monitor. So when i go into
the display setting and lookup the driver info of the monitor, it does
display the correct name of the LCD monitor and the correct driver version.
Here is also what i found out:
The 2 drivers listed for the monitors are:
In addition, i found the sm770tft.inf file in the above first folder location.

I look forward to your reply.
Thank you for your time and support.
