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
