    Hey enco i might have a solution for you my friend..
    1) Right click on the desktop and open up the graphic card control panel(in my case its nvidia control panel).
    2) Now look on the left side and select the "Change resolution" option.. now i know you cant find your resolution there because neither could I.
    3) So now you will see a lot of resolution options but not the one you want so look down for an option saying "Customize".
    4) Now another windows open up...Now look down again and you will find an option named "Create Custom Resolution", click on it.
    5) Now you have the horozontal pixels, vertical pixels and stuff like that which you can fill up as you require.
    6) Once you have filled all the information click "test" and when the test is over and the particular resolution is fitting your screen like a charm you will find that resolution on top of all those resolutions that you never wanted under the topic "custom".

    I hope this helped you. :)

    Hello Schyte, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    It should. Could you post a screenshot of what you see when you right click on a empty space of your desktop, and when you click on Screen Resolution?

    Hi Brink, I am trying to fix someone's computer and did a Clean Install to repair registry, files and probably viruses however now the resolution is incorrect and I am unsure which one is the correct resolution, I do not know the monitor size (in inch) and am unaware which graphic card it has, would I need to manually go through each one to test, and if that doesn't help, try updating the Graphics?

    Hello Infinite,

    You'll need to at least know what graphics card or chip it has to be able to install the latest driver for it. You can look under "Display adapters" in Device Manager to help determine this though.

    For the monitor size, you can measure the screen diagonally to know how many inches it is.

    I tried installing the driver ATI Radeon Xpress X1200 according to DevMgmt, the resolution is still default but it was from AMD AutoDetect which did detect it correctly, it did not work (I even tried in Compatibly Mode for Vista SP2 because that's what this is for I think).

    Edit, the monitor is 1366x768 I think, but that's not in the list

    It also skips a range of resolutions from List all modes.

    The screenshot looks different because I saved the Screenshot, transferred to USB and went to my actual computer which has the normal resolution to actually edit/upload it. Strange

    Do you know what brand and model # the monitor is? There should be a sticker or plate on the back somewhere indicating what it is.

    What type of connection are you using?

    The monitor is an N19W (I am unaware of the brand - maybe AOC), a Google brings up very little results so it must be old or something.

    AOC N19W 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black (5017416268509) | eBay

    This is it but the one I am using is a different colour.

    I am using a VGA to VGA connection using only one monitor.

    It looks like it should be set to 1440x900, but it's not listed for you. Do you have any monitor drivers for it?

    How does it look at 1280x1024 or 1600x1200?
