I have a machine with Windows 7 x64 and 2 screens.

Both Samsung,

a SyncMaster 2443NW (max 1920x1200) and a SyncMaster 2032MW (max 1680x1050)

Problem is that the 2032MW on Windows 7 one only gives this ranges:

And the 24'' monitor, only gives a maximum of 1600x1200 !

I tried installing the Samsung drivers but they do nothing, the Graphic card is capable of such resolutions as it's an NVidia GeForce 9800 GT with 1024Mb Ram

on my MacBook Pro I have no problems in showing this as there is a nice application called SwitchResX that I can set any resolution.

What can I do in my Windows 7 machine?

Check the NVIDIA Control Panel, you should be able to add a custom resolution and enable it from there.

No luck :( it allows to add, but soon I press the Test, it says "Failed", add to add 1679x1050 in order to work... weird! :( – balexandre Jul 1 '10 at 6:44

In Device Manager, try manually installing a driver for your monitor. Right-click Computer, then click Manage. Expand Monitors, then right-click your monitor and click "Update driver software...". Click "Browse my computer", then "Pick from a list". Uncheck "Show compatible hardware" and select the "Digital Flat Panel" for your monitor.

If you lost 1400×900 when installing Windows 10, try downloading NVIDIA driver 307.74 WHQL, using clean install setting.

The 307.74 WHQL release does not support Windows 10. Using 307.74 would likely make the problem worst and result in the system not being bootable. – Ramhound Aug 25 '15 at 12:09
