1440x900 and a 1280x1024 monitor can't use native resolution [SOLVED]

Hello There.

My mate has two monitors. A 1440x900 using VGA to a DVI adapter.
And the second monitor being a 1280x1024 using DVI to DVI with a GTX 460 full with latest drivers.

However he cannot select "1440x900" as his main monitor size. His other monitor 1280x1024 is at it's native res.



Any help please?
Cheers

EDIT- After so many restarts just fixed it's self

    Autodetect is not working for that monitor. The easy way is to see if there is a driver for your monitor that you can install (from the monitor manufacturer's website).

    The hard way is to go into your registry settings and force a set aspect ratio, which will then allow you to select a compatible resolution from the menu.

    Thanks for the rapid response.
    word just in, his monitor is actually a TV.

    The registry way sounds the best. can damage be done to his monitor. I understand damage can be done to his PC is done incorrectly.

  4. yay for tech figuring itself out! lol

    If the settings were incorrect for the TV it would not do damage to it, the TV would merely put up a screen saying 'no signal' or 'signal out of range' or something like that.
