Windows 7: resolution has gone to hell...

I may be confused, is this a plug and play issue?
Not showing your monitor SPECIFICALLY any more...
I verified 1440 by 900 is the monitor's max res, could be on the way out, it's an inexpensive one.
You seem to have eliminated it being the driver, right?
BUT:
Drag it to another PC and see if it works perfectly there.
Could be a cabling issue, video card problem, etc etc.
I'd want to make sure it's not the monitor itself first!

yeah that's the problem. apparently the monitor didn't come with a driver since it is PnP and there is no driver i can find on the net. i will try to plug it into my laptop and see if it shows up as anything other than "generic non-pnp monitor."

update:

we had a bad storm the other night so i shut down the computer and unplugged it from the wall. after the storm passed i booted it back up and noticed a change in appearance on the monitor. checked device manager and my monitor is being recognized and displaying the correct resolution (1440x900.) crazyness.

Hi. I'm new here and this is my first post. I looked around a little and found one other thread with a similar question, but the question wasn't really answered. I can't find anything on the net that doesn't confuse me so bad it makes my head hurt, so I thought I'd try asking here. Thanks in...

What the Hell is MS Doing?
I just read (on Winsupersite.com) that the pre order/upgrades will NOT have a clean install option. This is outrageous. Does MS have no clue as to the goodwill re Win 7 has garnered them but how something exactly like this could destroy that? I have personally suggested to @ least 50 people to...
