I have the same-spec monitor as you (HP w2007) that syncs to its native
1680x1050 automatically, having no trouble syncing the splash screen.
Have you tried doing a factory reset on the monitor?
This monitor (the HP w2007) was new in January, and in March the
two-color power LED quit. I called HP Tech Support and was walked
through various procedures, only to have HP proclaim the monitor
defective and offer to send a refurb to me. I opted to keep the broken
unit, complete with its burned out light bulb.
Then I found the factory reset feature and clicked on it, and the power
switch lit once again.
I make my living on the evening news
Just give me something, something I can use.
People love it when you lose,
They love dirty laundry.
