It sounds like you have a driver problem. I would recommend that you reinstall the drivers for your video card. After that I would make sure that you install the drivers for your monitor. 1440x900 is not a standard resolution so the Windows default monitor driver may not have the proper refresh rate for your monitor. If you monitor drivers do not have a installer the link below will help you install them.

Cannot set my SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER 710V MONITOR RESOLUTION


When you can't change the screen resolution then most likely only the default VGA driver has been installed. You need to install the graphics driver of the video card that is installed in your computer.
To check which graphics driver is installed, click on Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advance - Adapter tab. If the graphics adapter is set for Standard VGA then the graphics driver was not installed.

Display Problem


video card may not be capable of that resolution and color depth, check your video cards max resolution and color depth.
I have several lcd monitors that are 1280x 1024 and they do not need drivers to work. the video card must be capable of generating that resolution.

Samsung SyncMaster 17" LCD Blacks out


If you have a second monitor, you could use your computer until the monitor goes black... then plug in a replacement monitor. My guess is that one will display black too...

My gut feeling is that your VGA card is on the fritz... I'm not convinced it's your monitor. Do you have a replacement VGA card you can try? I'll bet that'll take care of the problem.
