13" MacBook Pro with Win 7 and External VGA gets 640x480 [duplicate]

I have a brand new 13" MacBook Pro - 2.26 GHz and the NVIDIA 9400M Video card. I installed Windows 7 (final) in boot camp and booted up to Windows 7. Installed all the drivers from the Apple disk and it was working great. Then I attached the external VGA adapter (from apple) to connect to a projector and it dropped down at 640x480 resolution. No matter what I did it wouldn't let me change to a higher resolution if the external VGA was connected. Once it disconnects then it goes back to the normal resolution.

"This is now fixed with Bootcamp 3.1. I've verified the fix.

Install from the Apple website"

I know you've tried updating drivers, but try using the latest from LaptopVideo2Go. Make sure you are not booting with the projector plugged in. Plug it in after Windows has loaded then check display preferences, you should be able to increase the resolution.
