3007WFP-HC, 2560x1600, must be PC DVI-D DL out port

I am trying to set up two of these monitors but cannot get above 1280x800 resolution. When I go to set my screen resolution, I have the option of going up to 2560x1600 but when I select anything above 1280x800, the monitors just flash color bars.

I am using an NVidia NVS 310, two DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI-D adapters, and two Dual-Link DVI-D cables (Dell NG032 to be exact). I have installed the relevant driver for the monitor (R222148). And checked that I have the latest driver for my video card installed.

Out of curiosity, I tried using a Single-Link DVI cable and my screen resolution options changed such that they maxed out at 1280x800. Also, another weird thing is that despite having the option to go up to 2560x1600, the "recommended" tag is by 1280x800.

* The only resolutions supported by this 2007 monitor are 1280x800 or 2560x1600
* To get 2560x1600, the PC and/or video card must have a DVI-D DL out port
PC/video card DVI-D DL out port --> HCX4X 3007WFP-HC DVI-D DL to DVI-D DL cable --> 3007WFP-HC DVI-D DL in port
* PC and/or video cards with a DP/mDP/HDMI out will only do 1280x800 using any combination of converter cabling to the 3007WFP-HC DVI-D DL in port
* Laptop docks that provide a DVI out port will also fail to do 2560x1600

Hi Chris,

I know this post is a few years old, but hoping you could help me. I also have an old 3007WFP monitor and I want to connect it to my new Alienware Aurora, with Nvidia 1080TI card (which only has DisplayPort and HDMI outputs). A Dell rep suggested this adapter: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-adapter-displayport-to-dvi-dual-link/apd/470-aanw/tv-home-theate...

Will that work to display the 2560 x 1600 resolution?

Thanks,

Claudia

 

Not for this monitor. It should work on other Dell monitors.

OK. I will try it anyway and report back the results.

Claudia - 

did the DP-DVI-D adapter work? did you try the HDMI output? 

I too have this 2007 Dell 3007WFP-HC monitor, and trying to hook it up to my Dell Latitude 7480 HDMI out, via a HDMI-DVI Dual link adapter and  DVI-I dual link cable, but resolution maxes at 1280x800. Display works but at that MTV-era resolution. 

Initially i couldn't even add 2560x1600 as a custom resolution but after reading somewhere about bandwidth limitation, I was able to add 2560x1600 at 30p Hz refresh rate as a custom resolution. At that setting the display just blanks and power LED glows red. Boo. 

Wouldn't the HDMI-DVI-DL adapter fully convert all dual link signals? Curious how the "true sensing" monitor is able to detect the adapter, so some specific DVI-D Dual Link signal is missing? 

Thanks

Hi, does the adapter work?? I have the same problem, I want to use it for my laptop which only has HDMI...

thank you

I have the exact same problem, just bought a new computer with a Nvidia 1080 that only has DP out and HDMI out. I tried to connect my 3007WFP one after another to both with the according adapter. I never could get the full resolution. I think I'll have to buy a new screen, unless someone finds a miraculous solution to that issue.

Moody Maestro,

It is time to move that monitor to an older PC that has DVI-D out port and purchase a newer monitor for yourself.

Chris,

I have the same monitor and a DVI-D DL cable.  I have a Dell Inc. Latitude E5450 in a Dell lap dock that has two DVI-D DL ports, and two DP ports.

I've connected the DVI-D cable to port 1 on the lap dock. The max resolution I can get is 1280x800.

I followed some directions I found online for adding a custom resolution to the Intel Graphics Control Panel and it always tells my my configuration exceeds maximum bandwidth.

When I look up the chip on Intel's website, it says the 5500 will support 2560x1600.

What's the problem?
