Windows 7: system crashes at 1440*900

system crashes at 1440*900

hello everyone.
i m having this weird problem where, the moment i set my screen resolution to 1440*900 (or anything close to 8:5 ratio), my system crashes, the screen goes blank except 4 a thin white line in the corner and remains this way no matter how many times i reboot. my only option then is to start in safe mode and restore the system to an earlier restore point.
i m using a rig comprising of:

- ASUS M3N78-EM motherboard
- AMD phenomX4 9950 processor(64 bit)
- NVIDIA 8600GT 1GB graphic card
- 2GB RAM
- 500GB SATA2 hard-disc
- Samsung SyncMaster 920NW monitor ( with 1440*900 as native resolution)

the rig runs fine on all other resolutions except on 1440*900 and 1280*768. the only problem is that all the images appear to be stretched, which is really annoying.

i have used windows XP 32bit, vista 32bit and windows7 64bit. the problem is the same in all operating systems. i tried using the NVIDIA drivers that came vid the card and even tried downloading the latest compatible NVIDIA drivers from NVIDIA website. nothing helped.

i know the problem isnt in the monitor or the graphic card as i have tested them on several other systems and they work fine there.

pleeeeeeeze guys, i need help. m at the end o the road here. i dont know wat else to do.

thank u

I note that driver was issued in 2007, surely there will be a more recent one.

I'm not sure 'cos thats the Samsung support site and the last driver for the monitor was actually for Win 98/ME/2K/XP/X64/Vista and not 7. I guess the monitor came out around Fourth Quarter 2006

Check optional Windows Update for newer drivers.

What power supply do you have? If you don't have a powerful enough Power Supply it could cause this.
