Re: ViewSonic VA2216w cannot get resolution 1680 - 1050
Dont change the screen resolution by going to computer resolution screen or the settings screen. Open the NVIDIA graphics utility or display utility and change the settings from there as all the controls regarding the screen resolution and the color effect are now handled by NVIDIA...

This is not a GPO issue. The problem is that all Windows will attempt to set the new resolution and a fail-safe is that if you do not click the Keep Changes button after thirty seconds it switches back to the old settings. This ensures that if you set the resolution to a range the monitor or display adapter can't handle that you don't get 'stuck' with a blank screen. Check that the display adapter in the Dell 780 can handle a resolution of 1280x1024 and that the monitor can also handle this resolution.
To change the resolution of your monitor, right click your desktop and click Properties. Go to the Settings tab, and then drag the slider in the Screen Resolution box all the way to the right. That should make it 1920x1080. Click OK and then your resolution should change.
Obviously the graphics card is not capable of supporting the resolution you have set so it go's blank.
Although you can set the resolution via the computer the system will not change it back when you save that setting even though you see nothing, the computer doesn’t know you can’t see anything.
You need to go into the monitors menu (a button on the monitor front panel) and set it back to a supported resolution or default.
Start at 600x800.
Once you see an image on the monitor right click the desktop go to properties then settings and slid the screen resolution bar to the right to a resolution that suits you don’t go to high or you will get the same problem.
1024x768 would probably suit you.
Hope this helps.
That's a lot of information and possible problems areas. You need the driver for the Viewsonic screen first of all..
Why do you need to drive the screen at that frequency? you won't notice anything above 85Hz anyway..
I am assuming you have the correct drivers for you video card adn that it is correctly configured for the resolution and frequncy. That video card can drive high resolutions adn high freq's. But if you're only getting those two options then it appears to be a driver option.
Get/load the Viewsonic screen driver first.
The max resolution supported by that LCD HDTV is 1366 x 768. If your screen resolution in XP is set higher than that, you'll run into issues. Reduce your screen resolution first, then run the nVidia multiple display setup.
You could check your DPI setting in the display, being a large monitor your DPI setting shoul be up around the 75 - 85 Hertz. To access this Control Panel --> Display --> Settings --> Advanced --> Monitor and then click the drop down box and see what the DPI is set to and keep trying the different options until it is clear. Hope this helps.
