I had recently bought Samsung SyncMaster 2033 TFT 20'' monitor but it is giving me resolution problem. I am not able to adjust resolution for this monitor as my Displey settings only showing 5 resolutions i.e - 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x720, 1280x768 and 1360x768. I had tried windows vista and windows 7 but getting same problem. I had already tried to create custom resolution from nvidia control panel but it gives me the message - Custom resolution is not supported by your monitor.

I am not getting higher screen resolution like 1600x900 etc which are supported by this monitor..

I have nvidia 9800GT graphics card, windows 7 64bit..

can any1 plz help me on this issue ?

waiting eagerly for reply..

There may be a setting in the advanced Nvidia control panel for resolution that is putting a cap on your windows resolution. I had that happen once with my ATI control center.

Try un-installing the drivers, reboot then reinstalling.

This fixed a fuzzy text issue with my HTPC.

I still think the issue is with your Nvidia control panel. It can put a resolution cap on the windows display resolution. Depending on your version of Nvidia's control panel, it will look similar to this

I don't know what else it could be. Everything I see on that model says it supports 1600x900.

I would try a different monitor and see if you can get the higher resolution. If yes, it's the monitor.

well, i am too suffering from the problem........
i had some issues previously wid my monitor
after when i got it fixed, the problem was solved but my resolution became low..1.e 1280 x 1024
the same probs that your pc is showing, im not able to configure the problem.
i guess its the monitor who is having the problem.
when i had XP 64 bit installed, i was able to add custom resolution to 1680 x 1050, but when i installed Windows 7, i am not able to install any custom resolution. i have installed all latest drivers, but still im getting the same probs.
i have 8600 GE nvidia graphic card
and 2043nwx monitor.....
can anybody give any solution
