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?

Re: No 1440X900 Resolution Option in Display Settings
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.

This is not a monitor problem.This is a mother board problem, some mother boards are supporting this resolution.For this problem,you have to replace the mother board or put the graphics card on the same mother board.your problem will solve.
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.
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.
please try to check / use the display adapter device (like nvidia if this is installed in your PC) settings control panel instead of the System->Preference->Screen Resolution option then you can obtain the desired graphics display. best regards
I have the same problem. i downloaded a generic driver that allows 1600 X 900 resolution. this is better..things are taller rather than wider (with the 1280X1024 resolution). i dont understand why there isnt a 1440X900 driver available for XP systems.
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.
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.
