Screen resolution problem

Hello!

I've just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. My graphics card is geforce 8800gts 320mb and my screen is hyundai imagequest L72D. My screen does support 1280x1024 but 7 gives only the options of 800x600 and 1024x768. I've installed the latest nvidia drivers for that card also. 7 shows my screen as PD421 analog. Dunno why. I'd like to get that 1280x1024 resolution to use because I don't like this 1024x768. I used Windows XP before and in XP I can use that resolution.

Please someone help.

Install the monitor driver. Connect via DVI-DVI. Reinstall the nvidia drivers (they maybe didn't install)

Did you check in Device Manager to see if the drivers installed properly?

I had a couple of odd behaviors with NVidia drivers when I first set up this system but eventually I re-discovered the old trick of uninstalling the video card in Device Manager and letting Windows re-install the drivers... that got it working for me.

Also you should check what the monitor's native resolution is. That's where you will get the best focus and color balance.

This monitor supports only 1024x768 on dvi. Dunno why that's so. I'll try to reinstall nvidia drivers.

Didn't help. I think the problem is that Windows regonizes this monitor as PD421 analog. When unistalled the drivers and let Windows install those again, I had the option 1280x1024 before restarting the computer. After restart it showd the monitor again as PD421 analog.

And the native resolution is 1280x1024.

This monitor accepts both analogue (VGA) and Digital (DVI-D) signals. Make sure you are using the 24pin DVI-D cable. Go into the monitors On Screen settings and make sure Input Select is set to Digital TMDS/24pin DVI-D Digital. Set refrash rate to 60Hz first, then try and select 1280x1024.

As I said before, the DVI supports only 1024x768 resolution, so there's no help from it.

I know. Just trying to help.
Have you got anything else attached. The PD421 is a Plasma HDTV connected via Analogue VGA.
