Windows 7: native resolution

native resolution

hi guys,
Since installing my new mbb(GA-73PVM-S2H) I have struggled to get the supplied nvidia display drivers to work and had to revert to windows 7 drivers. Today I managed to get the latest nvidia update to work but I can only get screen resolution up to 1600x 1200, whereas with my old mbb and ancient graphics card gave me 1900 x 1200 which is the monitors native resolution. Anyone got a clue what I am missing?
