Hi, I just tried it. It adjusted my resolution to 1280x1024. Not quite there, but getting closer.

Hmm, I tried this method to create a custom inf:
Force DVI/HDMI resolutions and refresh rates

But I am having no luck. I don't know why...

In view of your previous posts, there is only one possibility here, and that is that the Windows 7 drivers are either incorrect or corrupt.

Use driver sweeper to get rid of all old installations, and try installing the drivers again;

Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

Make sure that your displays are set correctly. Check the box "Make this my main display" where appropriate;

Hello,
Nothing seems to be working. I wiped all of the drivers, and reinstalled different Nvidia drivers, the latest, the next to latest, the one before that, but I am still having problems with my native resolution not displaying. I think that the software for the drivers are the cause for the problems. I logged into my Windows XP partition, and the resolution was messed up all of a sudden. It also used to work. The two partitions are separate, yet now my XP partition has the same problem. They have the same Nvidia drivers, and they both happened when I enabled dual view.
Only Ubuntu is my last operating system which supports dual view (laptop and monitor).
Are there any third party drivers for my video card(I know it is a little old, but it would be great if there was still some support for it)?

I found three threads with the exact same problem as me, yet none of them have solutions:
win XP detects wrong PnP monitor - Champions Online Forums
GeForce Go 7600 - NVIDIA Control Panel - NVIDIA Forums
what's wrong with my resoulton - Hondahookup.com

Is the problem unsolvable?

I really need help with this. After 5 minutes of looking at my monitor, I feel so sick. Powerstrip says that I am running on a refresh rate of 75Hz, which is definitely not the optimal refresh rate for this monitor.
