    I got an old monitor of my grandma, who just got a flatpanel. She was using a 21" CRT @ 800x600 before, so I snagged it. It is capable of doing 1600x1200, but my options are only showing me 1280x1024 (in Ubuntu Linux). Do I need drivers or something? This monitor is no longer supported by HP. :(
