Windows 7: Monitor's native resolution goes off the edge of the screen?

Monitor's native resolution goes off the edge of the screen?

Hi

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit using a 19" widescreen monitor with a native resolution of 1440x900. If I try to use this resolution I get a decent quality image, but it goes off the sides of the screen. The Geforce drivers recommend using 1440x1050, which works but everything looks squashed and not quite right, so I would prefer to use the native resolution.

The problem occurs with the Geforce drivers Windows installed by default, and with the ones I downloaded from nVidia's website (version 260.99.) While trying to mess with the display settings I managed to get a blank screen so had to boot into safe mode (where presumable it uses some sort of basic VESA driver rather than the nVidia drivers), if I set the display to 1440x900 there the image fills the screen perfectly!

In the nVidia control panel it reports the native resolution as 1440x1050.

Any ideas on how to get 1440x900 working properly?

Many thanks.

Matthew
