I used System Restore to rollback a driver update on Win 7 pro x64 (not display driver).

When the system came back up, the resolution was less than it used to be. I went into both the Windows Screen Resolution dialog and the NVidia Control Panel and the correct resolution of 1440 x 900 is gone.

I went to my video card manuf. site and downloaded the latest driver for Win 7 pro x64 and it didn't help.

Any ideas?

the rollback may have 'nuked' the monitor inf file.

open the device manager, uninstall the monitor and restart the computer.

or go to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Display > Screen Resolution (or right click on the dektop > Screen Resolution) > Advanced Settings > Monitor:

clear the box Hide modes that this monitor cannot display and Apply.

The NVidia control panel had an Add Resolution button, so I plugged it in manually and it looks ok. This still bothers me though...
