I think the issue maybe comes from the graphic card itself. It works on xp but not with Vista or Seven... (sorry for my english, i speak french)

Have you tried powerstrip? EnTech Taiwan | Utilities | PowerStrip

I was able to force my 4 year old laptop to output 1900x1080p even though it's max resolution was well below that. Might want to give it a try.

Whats the native resolution of your monitor?
Is it 1440x900 or 1680x1050?

Bcoz your mentioning 2 different ratios here.
My monitor is native 1680x1050 & I don't see 1440x900 listed at all.

Looks like an EDID problem to me...
Follow #2 and #3 from here: Force DVI/HDMI resolutions and refresh rates
Upload the resulting file somewhere so I can take a look.

What you may need: Male DVI-I to Female VGA adaptor
What you may have to do:
Create an override EDID using #4-... from the above linked post.
Break the highlighted pin from the DVI-VGA adaptor like in this image.
Connect your monitor using your vga cable plugged into DVI-VGA adaptor that is plugged into DVI port of your graphics card. Update windows driver with your custom driver.
I can help you with the software part, the hardware part is up to you (getting the adaptor, breaking the pin).

I have a weird problem. My FX5200 card is capable of dual display. The problem is I can only get one to the proper resolution of 1680x1050. The other will not give me that option instead I have to use an odd setting like 1600x1200.

Anyone have any idea why its doing this.

Also I installed the latest driver and Nvidia control panel is not present on my system for some reason.
