I have set my resolution to 1440x900 in windows settings, but monitor is stuck in 1280x960 resolution in its own settings. Part of the desktop is left out of screen, but i can scroll it with my mouse to see rest of it. I have updated my graphic cards drivers but cant seen to get screens own resolution to change. And yes, I'm sure that monitor has 1440x900 resolution since i have used that for the last 4 months

You need to make sure your computer's display resolution is set to 1440x900, which is the monitor's native resolution. Other resolutions will result in fuzzy displays or, as you're seeing, distorted images.
Right-click on an open area of the Windows desktop (that is, not over any icons), then select "Properties" from the pop-up menu. Click the "Settings" tab and you'll find a slider adjustment to set the resolution. If 1440x900 is not offered as a resolution, you'll need to upgrade your video card (or add a video card if you have a motherboard with integrated video). Most newer computers support that resolution, but some older systems may only go to 1024x768.
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.
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.
Hi, Afraid the only operating system now is windows 10 on any PC unless your using a Mac system. Once you upgrade to windows 10, everything will automatically set everything correct for you & you will be surprised how it will speed up your system! this is the best Microsoft release operating system they have ever made. Please leave me feed back: Malcolm Campbell, Thanks.
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.
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.
Most likely the resolution of your desktop has and aspect ratio that in incorrect for your monitor. The native resolution of that monitor if 1440x900. Use the Windows (if using windows) desktop properties to set the desktop resolution to 1440x900.
