Hi.

I just bought new wide-screen monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 920nw), and i cant use 1440x900 resolution with my embedded sis 651 igp. I read about this problem on my MB vendor website, it says i need UniVGA3 drivers (installed) and video bios 2.28 or later. I updated system bios with last available update from SIS website (http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downlo ... =3&LanID=9), but it still includes 1.12.06 video bios version.

I cant find link for my MB patched bios on yours download page, so please would you, guys, be so kind to patch linked above official bios for me?

edit by cp: changed topic to real motherboard name.

Did it, and followed this link http://www.wimsbios.com/files/vgabiospatched/bios.jsp. It leads to large list of MB's names, and i cant find ECS 651-m in this list, sorry.
