    In maxed it can be 1440x900 Name type of my monitor is Syncmaster 940nw Samsung. And now i can set the resolution just on 1366x768 less rezolution or more 1600x900 but there is no 1440x900.
  5. Are you using VGA or DMI?

    VGA
  7. Might need to try a different refresh rate at that resolution. Since the image displays but it off, that sounds like a refresh problem.
  8. Hello. Sometimes "unsupported" resolutions/refreshrates are not shown. Did you try to set this option and place 1440x900 which should be available then?
  9. When i trie do do a different refresh rate than in front off my screen aperas recommended 1440x900 60hz but when i do at 60 refrehs rate than it fits to my screan but looks very bad as if you would look through a glasses .

    You said that you cannot see the resolution from the windows' monitor control panel and you tried to set the resolution/refresh rate from the nvidia control panel, so this might be the problem. Have you try to check the option which allows you to see more "unsupported" resolutions/refresh rates?

    edit: Also if this is your monitor syncmaster-940nw, it might need drivers too. (if you haven't install them already.)
  12. Where are you trying to change the resolution at? Are you using the nvidia control panel?

    Where can i find this option which allows to see more unsuported resolution /refresh rates? yes it is mine monitor i think that the drivers has installed automaticly because off windows 7.

    i tried in screen resolution in nvidia control panel(change resolution) and also in customize resolution , and also in advanced settings where you can list all modes . and enywhere there is no 1440x900.

    I can't find win7 drivers for your monitor (I can find only for Win 98/ME/2K/XP/X64/Vista). I hope that win7 is installing the proper drivers for this.

    You can find this option when you are at your desktop, right click, and then choose monitor resolution. Then choose "advanced settings"---> then the second tab "monitor" and uncheck the hide option.

    i looked that my monitor has updated drivers, also i did ass you said it is already uncheked and i cant check ore unchek dont know why.
  17. If you have a 16x9 monitor as shown by being able to do 1600x900, you really shouldn't display to another aspect ratio.
  18. Check your drivers are installed and up to date

    Check what your monitor ACTUAL native resolution is via the cable used (some HD tv's might be HD but will only accept 1024x768 via VGA for example)

    Hmmm... This is strange. We might be close to the cause of the error. They might be updated but I still suspect the drivers. The problem is that I can't find samsung win7 drivers for this monitor.

    Aspect Ratio: Widescreen - 16:10

    Native Resolution: 1440 x 900


    edit: Try to reinstall GPU and monitor drivers.

    Well its the same problem. Since windows dont recognise it, neither game settings will. May I ask what's the version of the driver you are using?

    I kinda lost you here :P. So all you need is a DVI/HDMI to VGA cable, right?
    Hmmm I guess you need something like this? PPA Model 7369D 10 ft. DVI to VGA Cable

    edit: or this? Link Depot Model DVI-6-VGA 6 ft. DVI To VGA Cable
