Windows 7: No 1440 x 900 screen resolution

No 1440 x 900 screen resolution

I have recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate but lost my 1440 x 900 screen resolution. I have a Viewsonic 19" LCD (VX1935WM-3). I have read a lot of threads on installing drivers and new video cards which is opverwhelming and very confussing. Is there a straight forward fix (like that is even possible!)?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Do you know what video card you have?

If you type Device Manager in start menu search you'll get this window,

See if there is a symbol next to the display adapter.

Can you adjust it in the Nvidia control panel, right click on your desktop.

You can also go to Nvidia site and get the latest driver.

Unfortunately the control panel only offers 4 resolutions and skips right over 1440 x 900. I also downloaded the latest verion form NVIDIA with no luck. My search continues...

You should be able to create a custom resolution

I had this issue with my Mrs's HP w19 monitor. The solution was to make sure that I used the short monitor cable that was supplied with the monitor and no others, at least, no other longer cables. Bloody stupid HP in my opinion. Never had this issue with any other monitors before, just this HP one.
I don't know whether this is the same issue as what you are having, but I thought I'd better tell you what happened with mine in case. :-)

Have you installed the monitors' drivers??

I downloaded the "signed" drivers for Windows 7 from the Viewsonic site. While installing it prompted me to download the "unsigned" versions because they were not compatible. I downloaded the unsigned drivers but I have no idea if they were applied. When I opened the downloaded file it extracted then did nothing else. I can see the application in my Control Panel/Programs. I am unsure if I need another step to actually apply the drivers?!
