Do you have the NVIDIA control panel in the notification area. As I mentioned before, some people with that resolution have to put it in as a custom resolution (not sure how to actually do this).

EDIT: found a small guide on the NVIDIA website: http://www.nvidia.com/object/custom_resolutions.html

You'll need to figure out the refresh rate for your monitor.

You would go to control panel>Nvidia control panel>change resolution>customize>create custom resolution>enter the horizontal Pixels>vertical Pixels>color depth and refesh rate that your Lcd is rated as> then test.
Have you tried going through the device manager install? Fabe

Figured out what you need to put in. 1360x768, 60 Hertz, 32-bit color. This should solve the resolution problem, without needing the monitor driver.

@Fabe yes

I don't know why but after going to the control panel>Pressed Customize>checked 'enable resolutions not exposed by display'>pressed 1360x768 at 100hz(32bit)>clicked on 1360x768>apply and it worked
But the problem now is Just Cause 2 because it's still saying out of range

Do you have any other games installed and if so do they work at that resolution? Trying to see if it's game specfic. Fabe

The problem I see now is your monitor is not designed to operate at a 100hz refresh rate. It is designed for a 60hz refresh rate. You can read the specifics for your monitor here: Lg Monitor Ch.lm84k w1941s-Pft
