Win7 RC 64bit only shows 1280x1024 max resolution?
I have latest nvidia drivers
My monitor shows as NEC LCD 1765 but driver is generic pnp..is this what is limiting me from going to higher resolution?
I know my GeForce 8600GT supports higher resolution than 1280x1024

A lot of times if you don't have the driver installed for your monitor (LCD) you will get this kind of behavior. Try finding and installing the driver for your LCD. Fabe

Please update your system specs.

Also - what build of 7 Enterprise are you running? Have you tried uninstalling the nVidia drivers and letting Windows discover and install the drivers, and then visiting Windows Update to see if there are driver updates available?

OK, sorry for gravedigging here but I stumbled upon this searching for another issue. I have this monitor, bought in 2004, it's a 17" LCD. It's max resolution is 1280x1024 now, and always has been.

Why does OP think it should go higher? it's only 17" FFS!

Regarding to some posts above saying that your monitor will only show 1280x1024 as max res, did you use it or did it show a higher res when using an OS like XP or Vista?
