Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate

Just scroll down to the bottom of this topic, SevenForums will display a number of threaths with +/- the same problem. You could have a look there for starters. Otherwise, head over to the graphics card section and before you post, do a little search there, i'm sure you'll come up with plenty to read and try.

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

Check in device manager to see if your monitor/LCD is listed, or if it say PNP.
Sometime this happens when your monitor /LCD needs the driver installed for your LCd in order to get full use of it's native resolution. If you would provide the make and model number we can check and see if it has a driver avalible.
You can also find the latest driver for your card here NVIDIA DRIVERS 258.96 WHQL. Fabe
