I posted this on NVIDIA long ago and didnt get any help maybe someone here can help. this is what i posted
Aug 28 2007
I just had a 8500 GT installed, and i have a 19" wide screen LCD with a 1440x900 optimal resolution. Before with my Intigrated 6100 graphics i had the option of setting the Resolution to my monitors optimal Resolution. But after this install. the display settings does not list 1440 x 900. Everything but that.

. So now, either i am forced to veiw at a low Resolution or at a higher Resolution but with everything Skewed or streched out. am i now going to need to buy a new monitor that supports a higher Resolution. I have looked in both the Nvidia controls and the Windows display settings for a remedy

Today, 09:13

I have called Nvidia and was told that my native display resolution is an oddball resolution and not very common ,and that the Graphics card does not support this resolution 1440 x 900. I looked at the release notes for the driver, and infact seen that my resolution is not listed in the supported resolution. But i beg to differ in the comment that it is a oddball resolution. if you look at all the new LCD 19" wide screen resolutions that are being sold on the market today have the resolution 1440x 900 as the native resolution . could you please include this resolution in the next driver release. or tell me how i can fix this issue. so i dont have to spend $300-$350 for a new monitor.

Can anyone help with this I have Vista and NVIDIA does not include the Nveiw with vista anymore that gave the ability to customize your display settings . and another Question . why does my display settings menu say that i have a generic Non plug n play monitor?

1440 x 900 is NOT oddball, i have an Acer 19" widescreen and that's it's native resolution too. Am running an NVIDIA 6600 card here on XP and when i patched the latest driver from their website it gave my screen a fuzzyness to everything i was unable to cure, except by re-installing the older driver.

As for the display settings thing, with mine it never actually noted itself under device manager and i had to d'load a driver from Acer to fix that. It was listed in device manager as the same way you describe. As i don't know what monitor you're running i can't direct you further, but even still i'm not familiar with Vista so i may be of no use to you.

Try the driver d'load thing for your monitor, it may be the cure, and no it's not on the disc you received if indeed you have an Acer monitor
I'm not as think as you drunk I am

Have you updated to the Latest release of the Vista drivers from Nvidia. They were supposed to fix allot of issues.
