    Hello
    I am having a strange issue with my laptop (a dell xps 1645). I needed to reformat and do a clean install of windows and just reinstalled the drivers I got from dell whtch are the same ones it had before the wipe. It stays plugged into a external monitor due to its own panel failed (a common defect in this model), The monitor has a native resolution of 1920x1200 a 16:10 ratio but due to the low end power of this gpu I run most games at 1280x800 which is worked fine before the wipe. Now all of a sudden setting a 1280x800 resolution anywhere game or even at the desktop letter boxes the monitor(big black bars top and bottom).. What makes this stranger is when the system is set to 1280x800 the monitor's information display shows it's receiving a resolution of 1280x960 instead of the proper 800 which I assume not being a 16:10 ratio is what's causing the issue. There is no issues with 1650x1050 or its native 1920x1200 so I am a bit stumped here x.x And as I said this exact same setup worked fine before the system wipe.

    Update: The wrong output res is not just with that monitor. I just tried it on another one and the same thing.. The computer is set to 1280x800 but the monitor is getting an 1280x960 input
