Windows 7 64bit
Geforce GTX 8800 or monitor probs

I Have a GTX 8800 GPU card and running my PC on a Philips FlatTV and running Windows 7 32bit.
I don't know which it is the GPU or the Monitor that's not allowing me to change the resolution from 800x600. when I go to Control Panel - adjust screen resolution, the resolution tab is just like it's blocked, I can't move it any way. The monitor is set on 75Hertz and True Color (32bit).
Have you got any answer/s?
