Well, all you need to do is properly flash the latest bios from Asus as that has VGA bios 2.49 and use the latest driver set as that will give you the 1440x900 resolution.
Vintage-PE1 BIOS version 0413 1- Support new CPUs. Please refer to our website at: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx 2- Updated VBIOS to 2.49 to support 1440x900 wide screen (Be sure to use vga driver 3.74.02 or later) 3- Enhance compatibility with some CPU.
This first one I flashed via the Asus Windows flash utility. The second one I flashed via bootdisk. Both of them still have the VGA bios still listed as 2.20. I am using the 3.93 drivers as well. The bios I am flashing is "V1PE1_0413.ROM"
Is there anything special I need to do to make sure the VGA bios gets flashed as well? The Windows flash utility doesn't really have any options, however IIRC afudos has quite a few switches you can flag while flashing (it has been ages since I have flashed a bios!)
It doesn't seem likely that the bios does not in fact contain the 2.49 bios, but I suppose that could be a possibility as well.

And did you completely uninstall and reinstall the VGA drivers?
I just double checked and the bios is in deed revision 0413 at boot up. The VGA drivers were uninstalled, reboot and then the latest drivers were then installed. On properties -> advanced -> adapter it lists the bios information as version 2.20.

Yes, it is reporting the vbios as 2.51 and I am running 1440x900 resolution.
