My monitor suddenly doesn't let me have the old resolution

Hello everyone, suddenly i can't use the old monitor resolution. I was using 1440 x 900, now it doesn't let me anymore; when i 'forced it' from nvidia control panel it appeard with two black bars on the sides and foggy text. I think is a problem with the monitor recognition, because it doesn't appear my name monitor, it appears Generic Non-PnP Monitor.
I mention that i already reinstall the windows and graphics driver.

Monitor: Acer x193w
Graphics card: Msi GeForce GT630 2048MB DDR3 PCI-E

Check your video cable and make sure its firmly connected at both ends. if you have a spare cable handy swap it out. You may also want to go into your monitor settings and reset it to defaults.

Can you test that monitor on another PC?

Well if you did everything I posted and reinstalled Windows and drivers, I don't know what else to try? If the monitor works on OK on another PC you know its something to do with the PC setup. If it doesn't then its a video cable or monitor problem.
