There is some background info here. But don't panic. It is
possible you may be able to fix it, without some of the
solutions used here. For the first article, the situation
has been changing with time, so the answer to the problem now,
could well be different or easier than the answer in the
Nvidia monitor detection / direct access bug.
Good search terms for your search engine:
"custom resolution" edid "monitor driver"
The Avsforum thread mentions the "pan" problem, where the
desired resolution becomes a virtual desktop, and the
actual monitor resolution results in a "panning" window
within the desktop. Apparently there is a fix if you
see those symptoms.
