Proliant DL180G6 video and Wide Screen Monitor

Today I instaled Windows Server 2003 64-bit. I use 22" HP wide screen (16:9) monitor.
But I have only video modes for 4x3 in the list.
I've installed monitor driver, but it didn't help. Should I find new video-driver? (now it is standard VGA)?

Graphic is supposed to support up to

Graphics

32MB* shared supporting all display resolutions up to 1600x1200 16bpp@75Hz
NOTE: 8MB is dedicated to video memory.

Did you install all the drivers?

The card installed is a "Matrox G200E (server engines)."

Found a driver but it's only for win2k3:

Maybe it's possible to get the driver directly from Matrox?

Re: Proliant DL180G6 video and Wide Screen Monitor

If the graphics card does not have the 16x9 graphics mode capability, the video driver will not add 16x9 to the card. The matrox driver does not have any 16x9 modes either so it looks like this server can not do 16x9.

Also the fact in the quickspecks about the 75Hz frequency points in that direction as well.
