    965 Chipset Resolution no higher than 1280 x 800

      I am using a Dell Inspiron 1420 running Windows 7, 3 GB RAM with the Intel Mobile 965 Express Chipset.  I thought I would treat myself to a new external monitor for Christmas (Samsung 2233SW) but have been unable to get it to work.  I am running Dell's most current BIOS (A10) and have installed version 8.15.10.1930 (9/23/2009) version of the 965 family drivers.  I've installed the latest version of the Samsung drivers.

       

      Nothing I have done will let me select a resolution higher than 1280 x 800, 60 Hz, True Color.  Intel seems to know they have a problem here, but the latest update cited above doesn't appear to fix it it.  The monitor goes back to Costco today, is there any hope I can use more than a 15" external monitor with this chipset?
