BenQ FP937s LCD Monitor - Need Driver

The title pretty much says it all... does anyone know where I can find the correct driver for it? (even though the resolution is set to 1280x1024, the resolution is really only 1264x966 - I don't know if it's supposed to be this way or what, but I figured that getting the appropriate drivers would probably help...

TIA to anyone that helps!

do u use xorg?? just ran the command X -configure, then modify the xorg.conf file to set the right resolution.

also install ATI driver and follow the instruction, I use nvidia so i have to use either depth 16 or 24, dunno about ati

here's an example

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Card0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 1
Modes "1280x1024"
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 4
Modes "1280x1024"

also in your xorg.conf file you should set the proper horizontal and vertical refresh rates, I don't have them off-hand but if you search the web for "BENQ FP937s" you should find a PDF with the info you need.
