Windows 7: Native Res Gone

Native Res Gone

It seems that for some random reason my native res of 1440x900 has vanished leaving me only 3 options. I currently can go no higher then 1024x768.

This seemed to happen very randomly. I had gone to take a shower and when I came back my res was at 1024. It took me a second to realized this and I went to put it back thinking a game had changed it. However, the option was not there.

I have an Acer AL1916W (19" wide screen) with a Nvidia 7900GTX running the drivers

nvidia drivers sometimes lock me into 640x480 with monochrome, just make sure with device manager the driver they are pointing to is in the correct directory where the actual nvidia ones are, not defaults.

Strange installs seem to kick it to default after install.
