Getting Geforce Go 7400 to Output at 1440x900

Hi, I'm not sure, but I believe this forum is the right place to be asking this.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6375us, which has a Geforce Go 7400 with 128MB RAM and a VGA out. I'm also running Windows Vista Home Premium.

I have a monitor from when I used to use a desktop, a Syncmaster 940BW, which is a 19 inch widescreen monitor with a native resolution of 1440x900.

So I'm sure you can put 2 and 2 together and figure out what I want to do; I've tried connecting my laptop to the monitor using a VGA cable, and it works, but the real problem is that the number of resolutions supported is rather lacking, and the one resolution I need isn't there. I'd be happy with even 1366x768, but the only 16:10 resolution available is 1280x800, and that for some reason doesn't work well with my monitor.

I'm currently running the latest Forceware drivers (158.18) that I installed using an .inf file from this site. When I look at the properties, it tells me that the Bios version is 5.72.22.41.ad.

So, I was wondering if anyone knew if a solution existed that could make my video card output at 1440x900, and if so, what that solution might be?

Thank you.

See if there is a driver for your monitor.

If that fails you may want to try Powerstrip.

Wow, thank you, Powerstrip seems to work perfectly. However, I'm wondering, are there any dangers associated with using Powerstrip? I'm not overclocking the card at all and I'm using a resolution and refresh rate that I know my monitor supports, so I'm hoping that forcing my hardware to do something it apparently doesn't want to do won't be harmful in this case.
