Can't increase resolution/refresh rate

My monitor is 16:9,the GPU control panel showing my monitor capable to go up to 1920x1080 75Hz,however i cannot go beyond 1600x900 60Hz,also i can 1600x900 75Hz,but everything becomes blurry.

Why i can't go beyond 1600x900?
Why 75Hz is blurry while 60Hz looks fine?

Hey,

From your system specs, you mentioned that the monitor is BenQ G2020HDA and from the manufacturer's site the specs of the monitor confirms that the max attainable resolution on this monitor is 1600*900.

That is the max resolution supported by your GPU. Your monitor can only handle 1600*900.

Force Refresh Rate
How do i force a higher refresh rate? I tried with NVIDIA Control Panel but it said it wasn't supported. I want to force it, because the image quality seemed to be a hell of a lot better from 30 Hz to 60 Hz, and i want to try 72 Hz or even 120 Hz for 3D :) Thanks, Alex.
