Hello, I have found a temporary solution to this problem. It is definitely the driver by the way. When I currently boot with a Samsung 244T - Native Resolution 1920 x 1600, an NVidia 8800GTS, and an NVidia Driver Dated 3/27/09, which I recently updated my system with using Windows Automatic Update, my system comes up in 1600 x 1200 and there is no option for higher resolutions.

I open Windows "Control Panel," click on the NVidia Control Panel, select "Manage custom resolutions" under the "Display" category and select a Custom Resolution I created using the "Create" key of "1900 x 1200" and the advanced key box "Automatic." I also clicked the box "Force HD Resolutions." When the "Test" button comes up I press "Test" and OK. I then go to the "Change resolution" selection under "Display" and select 1920 x 1200 pixels. Thats it. It works without problem until I boot again.

I have to do this every time I boot! Can anyone help me so that I don't have to go through this every time? At least it works. Before I updated, a previous driver that originally came with my 8800GTS worked at 1920 x 1600 without problem. This is a bug in the current NVidia Driver for these cards! Any chance it will be fixed?

Since my last post I noticed that I said "select a Custom Resolution I created using the "Create" key of "1900 x 1200" and the advanced key box "Automatic." I should have said 1920 x 1200. In any case it still works.

I notice a lot of posts from other people with this same problem. Does anyone have a work around other than editing the Registry?
