Have you tried using that "Manage Custom Resolutions" option that shows in your screen shot?

its gotta be related to the 8500.....

ive had no resolution issues with the 3 GFX cards i tried on 7, 9600GSO, 8800GT, GTX260..

have you reseated the card now windows 7 & the Nvidia drivers are installed..??

sometimes if you install a bucket load of S/W onto ''pre-installed'' H/W it may not detect it all properly..

Thank you skunksmash for help, but everything its ok, only res is problem. I can change res to 1680x1050 in XP and Vista with no problem, but in Windows 7 is BIG problem for me!

Is there any program can help me to force my card to use 1680x1050 res, or i need to hack somthing to work?

I've got exact same problem with my Samsung Syncmaster 205bw and nvidia 7300 gs card on Windows Seven. DVI or VGA max resolution is 1600 x 1200 and Ican't get native resolution (1680 x1050) for my screen.
