    I added the custom resolution of 2560x1440 @ 55Hz CVT-RB timing over regular HDMI and it worked with my QHD desktop monitor.

    But it seems I cannot add 2560x1600 as a custom resolution in WinXP. I did that in Win7 and it worked fine. No matter how much I lowered the refresh rate, the Intel GPU app in XP keeps saying bandwidth exceeded. Is 2560x1440 the max I can get in Windows XP?

    I think the video card you are using, or a combination of the card and Win XP

    I have had this issue before. Eventually, I stopped trying & accepted what "setup" 'allowed'

    Not my thing. But you may find this of interest as it is the best article I've ever seen on hi res XP:
    http://wp.xin.at/archives/5616
    Gives very detailed info on XP Vs. Hi Res and shows what he did to go around system limitations.
    The whole website is very interesting to anyone using XP.
