No 1440X900 Resolution Option in Display Settings

I recently purchased a Samsung SyncMaster 933BW 19'' LCD Monitor. It says the recommended resolution is 1440x900, but that option does not show up in the Display Settings. In fact, was does show up are settings smaller & larger, skipping over 1440x900 from 1280x1024 to 1600x1200. The two settings are either too small, or too large, making everything look awkward. I was prompted to install a new monitor driver, SyncMaster 933BW/933GW SyncMaster Magic CX933BW/CX933GW (Analog), and I did - but the settings still do not show up. Any suggestions?

    That seems easy enough - thanks. Unfortunately, I'm unable to take the check from the box as the entire section is in gray. Do I have to change another setting to allow for me to alter that section?

    I actually restarted my computer and *was* able to un-check the box upon rebooting it, but it still did not enable me to get 1440x900, however, the 1280x1024 and higher came back (but 1440x900) did not show. I also tried removing the monitor to no avail. =[

Windoze is not detecting the monitor correctly. Right click the desktop as you had before to get to the display settings. Click the "advanced" button at the lower right, on the next window, click the "Monitor" tab, and remove the check from the box from "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display". That should add to the settings the 1400 X 900 resolution you are looking for.

    Ok, another approach, go to the device manager and remove the monitor. See if it detects it correctly upon reboot.

    The limitation then must then fall on your display adaptor. Check that manufacturer's website for a newer driver.

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.

Samsung 920WM monitor - Color problems, "blotches"


The 920WM has a recommended resolution of 1440x900. If your display properties are set to a higher or lower resolution, there will be ugly effects on videos, photos and fine text.

If you're running WindowsXP, minimize your apps and web browser so you can see the background.
Right-click on the background and select "Properties" to bring up the display properties dialog.
In that dialog, select the "Settings" tab to see the display resolution.
Set that to 1440x900 if it's not already, then hit "OK"

If videos are still blotchy, then check the video playback software to make sure it's not setting it's own resolution.

If that helps, please be sure to hit the "thumbs-up" button for me.

If not, use "add comment" to fill in some more details (XP or Vista? What's the video playback software called? How are you viewing pictures?) and I'll do my best to help!

Find your monitor's native resolution, in your case it's 1440x900. Go to display settings (usually right-click on desktop and choose properties), go to settings tab and move the resolution slider until it shows 1440x900. Confirm, the screen should flicker for a moment and adjust - and you should be fine.
If there is no 1440x900 resolution available, then installing a monitor .inf file that came on a disk accompanying the monitor might help.

Samsung SyncMaster 915N monitor


Go into advanced settings from the settings tab of "display properties" and select the "monitor" tab, from there, try changing the refresh rate. Toggle "hide modes that this monitor cannot display" if you do not see any other settings in the drop down other than the one that is already selected.

Proview wb926wbi monitor


Try changing the resolution to 1440x900. This is the ideal resolution for this monitor.
To change the resolution:
Right click on an empty space on your Windows desktop.
Choose Properties (XP) or Personalize (Vista)
Choose the Settings tab (XP) or Display Settings (Vista).
Slide the resolution slider to 1440x900, then click apply.
If asked whether you want to keep this setting, choose yes/ok.

Note: Not all video cards support this resolution. Updating your video card's (not monitor's) driver may add it.
