Windows 7: Screen Resolution?

Screen Resolution?

Hey, I'm a newbie.

I have just upgraded my OS from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7.
My LCD screen is 1280x768. Everything worked well in Vista but then when I upgraded my OS, there was no 1280x768 option in the screen resolution.

Right now, I'm using the 1024x768 option but it's still messed up. The taskbar is so large.

Do you know any solution to this problem?

PS.
I have already tried clicking the 'advanced settings' on the screen resolution and also clicking "list all modes" in the adapter tab. and i haven't seen a 1280x768 option again.

also unchecked the "hide modes that this monitor cannot display" on the monitor tab, and the available option was 1280x1024.. it should be 1280x768.

Make sure your computer recognized your screen/monitor correctly.
That's an issue I had to deal with since 98SE or XP
Then it will offer you the recommended resolution for that device and you can go from there.
