What resolution can the LCD manage? It might only be able to manage 1600x1200, which is why you can't go any higher!

first of all, ITS NOT LCD! ugh i said 21' flat 'crt' monitor. neways... the monitor can go at much higher res, around 2000 (cant member exact number) and if u know the gf3, it can also go over 1600 res. but wat could it be thats limiting it? i already have latest drivers etc.

Most people use the terminology "Flat Panel" to indicate LCD. Yes, I made a mistake, but it wasn't helped by the phrasing that was used.

Windows normally reads the list of supported resolutions via the DDC channel. This means that the monitor informs Windows of the maximum resolutions it supports. Now, I presume from the comment "I already have all the latest drives etc", that you have the correct driver for the monitor installed.

It would be of great help if you could provide both the manufacturer and model of the CRT.
