Custom Resolution Help

Hopefully someone can help me with this, I suck at graphics stuff.

I have an nvidia geforce gts 360m. On the nvidia product page it says it can support up to 2048x1536. So, I'd like to add this as a custom resolutions..but every time I try, it doesn't pass the custom mode test...and I don't know what settings to mess with to get it to work.

I'd really love some advice from someone that knows what they are doing

I have the most up to date driver.

I believe the reason your not passing the test is your exceeding the native resolution of your monitor/screen.
Even though the card is capable of your posted resolution doesn't mean that your monitor/screen can handle it.
You can check out this tutorial on how to force DVI/HDMI resolutions and refresh rates.
Caution exceeding your displays native refresh rate can damage the display. Fabe Force DVI/HDMI resolutions and refresh rates
