Windows 7: I, too, cannot get 1680x1050 resolution

Why on Earth would the NVIDIA Control Panel tell me that my monitor's native resolution is "not supported by [my] display"?

Is your monitor identified correctly in Device Manage, or is it identified as Generic PNP Monitor? Sometimes this can be corrected by unplugging the power and video cables from the monitor, and the tower, and letting them sit for 1/2 an hour. Plug in the cables to the monitor, then the tower, and power the tower on. See if the monitors are correctly detected now. See if that allows you to set correct resolution. If not, have a look at this tutorial.

It's been identified as SyncMaster 2253BW/2253LW,SyncMaster Magic CX2253BW(Analog) (its current designation), SyncMaster 2253BW/2253LW,SyncMaster Magic CX2253BW(Digital), Generic PNP Monitor, and Non-Generic PNP Monitor.

I've now also noticed a new problem: the monitor receives no signal after I awaken the computer from sleep mode. I can hear all the regular Windows sounds, but can't see anything and have to do a manual shutdown.
