    Here's my problem,
    I had to replace my HD and Video card a couple of months ago. I got the new video card from Dell, it is the same card that my system came with, GeForce 7800 GO. Since replacing these two items, I cannot achieve my original screen resolution of 1920 X 1200(WUXGA), all I can get is 1400 X 900(WXGA). Yes, I am sure it is WUXGA, as shown by dell configurator :

    CF176 LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY..., 17, Wide Ultra Extended Graphics Array..., VIDEO ELEC. STDS. ASSOC...., GLARE WIDE VIEWING ANGLE..., SAMSUNG...

    I have the latest Bios, video driver and all the other drivers. The Forceware driver version 84.63 will let me set WUXGA resolution, but it expands beyond the edges of my screen. The system BIOS shows a native resolution of 1400 X 900. I have even tried flashing to an older BIOS(A08) , but A08 or A09 makes no difference.

    Try putting the refresh rate at the lowest possible setting. That's the only thing I can think of that might affect this.

    Also, if you can find an "INF" file for the montor on the Vendor's site -- install that. You know if you have it if the monitor is recognized by model name and number -- not just generic Plug n Play.
