I've got an HP s3707c with on-board GeForce 9100 graphics. My LCD monitor has a native resolution of 1680x1050. I've got no problem getting 1680x1050 in Linux (Ubuntu, Fedora with the nvidia driver), no problem in Vista, but it just doesn't work in Windows 7. In Win7, I can select 1680x1050 in the Nvidia control panel, but when I click the Accept button, the resolution drops back to 1600x1024 (which really looks crappy). I've tried both the 191.07 and 195.39 drivers with the same results. Any known fixes out there?

Changed monitor driver to Digital Flat Panel (1920x1200). This gave me the ability to select 1680x1050 in the nvidia control.
