I have a BenQ FP222WH connected via DVI to a GeForce FX5600 running Omega Nvidia Drivers (2.169.21) on Windows XP.

The monitor works perfectly fine at 1680x1050 when connected via VGA, but is stuck at 1280x1024 when connected via DVI (There is a virtual desktop of whatever resolution is set in display properties). I've run two other computers on this display at 1680x1050 with no problems, so I'm assuming it's a driver issue (either with the monitor or video card), but I can't figure out which one. I've tried multiple nvidia drivers, and I have the same problem with each one. I can't seem to find a driver for Windows XP for the FP222WH though.

EDIT -- Should have done more reading. Geforce FX 5600 supports a max res of 1600x1200 through the DVI port.
