the resolution is grayed out, because its beyond the limits of your monitor to display it.
a 1600x900 monitor can't display 1920x1440

If your monitor can only display a maximum resolution of 1600x900, it will not be able to display the higher 1920x1440 resolution.
Get a new monitor.

Yes, it definatly is something hardware, Your Monitor.
It is only capable of displaying 1600x900.
IDK why your OS is letting you set the resolution to 1920x1440 on it as that is not what is being displayed.
Keep your resolution set at 1600x900 or switch it out for a different display.

i've solved the problem (the monitor has three cables a: 15-pin D-Sub Cable b: DVI Cable c: AC Power Cord)
do my age 70 ( poor excuess i kown) and lack of smarts.
i did not use b: DVI Cable . but when i did use.

everything works now.
