Windows 7: Resolution problem need help!

Resolution problem need help!

So here's my issue, I am using a dual screen display using an lg for my main and a sony bravia 40 inch lcd for my secondary monitor. I recently switched from 32 bit vista to 64 bit 7. With this switch i got new drivers for my nvidia 9800gtx+. Anyways when running vista i was able to get a custom resolution to display at 1920x1080 on my television by changing the timing under custom resolutions; however the 1920x1080 resolution present in the control panel will not display on my tv and i when i create a custom resolution with different timing it will not display because it tells me that the resolution already exists. So can anyone help me figure out how to create a duplicate resolution with different timing or just delete the 1920x1080 resolution present already within the nvidia control panel? Help would be greatly appreciated.

I open the nvidia control panel, go to change resolution, click add resolutions(which after i click add resolutions is where the built in 1920x1080 resolution is located that will not work), and then click create custom resolution
