Unable to Use the Native Resolution for Intel® Graphics Products and Intel® Express Chipsets





When using older Intel® graphics products, the native resolution of some displays, such as 1920x1080, 1680x1050, and 1440x900, isn't available in graphics properties. The extended display information data (EDID) doesn't read properly when connecting to a subset of digital flat panel (DFP) displays.

Intel has drivers to specifically address this issue that can have longer than normal resume times from standby. This solution only works with external displays, and doesn't address issues with a built-in display. Intel provides these drivers as is, and has not tested, nor provides warranty, to the operation of the driver for this purpose.

Select your product and operating system from the table to locate your driver.
