Windows 7: cannot get above 1024X768 Monitor

cannot get above 1024X768 Monitor

I have nvidia 9100 and an old mag CRT monitor. It does 1280X1024. However the best I can get is 1024X768 on windows 7. I tried adding 1280X1024 as a resolution and I got mode test failed or something like that. I tried 1280X800 and it allowed me to change it, but the display was almost like an octogon. I changed it back to 1024X768.
Any way to fix this? I could not find any updated drivers for my monitor.

Thanks

Hi Gt,

Other than replacing your monitor theres not much you can do because modern drivers/graphics cards rely on EDID infomation being sent from the monitor.

If your graphics card has a DVI port and you have a DVI 2 VGA adapter you can follow this method I posted here for overriding the EDID settings

OK I thought that may be the case. New monitor is already on the way.
Thanks!

1024X768 resolution leave a gap!
For reasons due to health and sight I like to use 1024x768 and not 1280x1024 on my 19"lcd monitor. If I set it to 1024x768 then there is a gap top and bottom of the screen that cannot be moved. In Windows XP I can set it to 1024x768 and there is no gap. I reckon it must be driver issues in...
