How can I overide XP's monitor settings?

Does anyone know how I can overide XP's automatic "Plug n' Play" monitor settings?
In Win98 my monitor is detected just fine, but in XP it wont let me go over 800x600 resolution.

TECH DETAILS
I'm using a 50" Samsung DLP screen as my monitor connected through a standard VGA port. I'm using a GeForce4 MX video card.

Thank for your help.

  1. Through either control panel or by right clicking on your desktop, get to display properties. Go to settings , then click advanced, then click on the monitor tab, and then uncheck the [] 'Hide modes that this moitor cannot display' tab.

    That should give you other display options.

    Just be sure you monitor/projector actually does support the resolution/refresh you set it at.
