Matrox g550 (via VGA) not showing 1680x1050 for 2005fpw

    g550
    dell 20" fpw
    plugged in through VGA (not DVI)

    The crazy thing is that at one point, I had it working, but a drive
    failed and I had to reload XP. Now I can't get my card to show
    1680x1050 without something like PowerStrip which sort of fakes it
    (poorly).

    Anyone else experience something similar??

    Updated with the Matrox BIOS utility - super easy - and its working
    fine now.
