Default Change screen resolution - blurry


I just got a HP EliteBook 8730W running Ubuntu Linux with and NVIDIA graphics card.
I open the NVIDIA X Server Settings dialog from System->Preferences->Monitors.
When the resolution is set for 1920x1200 the display is clear but too small for my older eyes.
I tried to set the resolution to 1440x900 which is also 16:9 but the result is a blurry display.
I get a message that says MetaMode 95 of Screen 0 is the same as MetaMode 1. All MetaModes must be unique. Can you tell me what this means and what I can do to change my display so that it is larger and clear?

Thank you.
