Windows 7: Win 7 x64 ultimate & gtx460 unable to go past 1024x768

Win 7 x64 ultimate & gtx460 unable to go past 1024x768

Hey all, couple days ago, I boot my system up and I'm shocked to find my resolution @ 1024x768 when it's supposed to be 1440x900, as that's the max for my monitor. Well, I tried rebooting, tried uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers, downloaded the most recent drivers from Nvidia and uninstalled/reinstalled again...still same issue.

I finally got fed up and decided to reload windows fresh. Formatted my partition and went through the setup process. After all was said and done, reinstalled Nvidia drivers for my card and the same damn issue was still there.

So, am I correct in assuming that, for what ever reason, my video card has crapped the bed on me?

Thanks in advance

Maybe, but it could also be that it has misidentified your monitor and thinks its smaller than it really is. Is the correct monitor listed on the screen resolution page? Also does device manger list your Video card correctly?

Yeah, monitor is listed normally and GTX460 is in device manager like always.

So 1024x768 is the highest resolution listed on the screen resolution page, and the slider won't go any higher?
Is there anything listed in device manager with a yellow ! or red X?

I have a similar problem (see the thread "Can't get a native resolution"). Are you sure that your monitor is listed correctly and not as "Generic monitor not plug&play"?
