I dont know if its the same for Nvidia but for me using ATI i had to open the
ATI console and set the hiest resolution there before i could use the windows
resolution tool.

hope this helps, you may have tried this but you did not state other wise
where you tryed to set things.

ATI console is ATI's own utility so set up resolutions and other setting on

Right click Desktop
Personalize
Display Settings
Adjust screen size
Then, You should be able to use nvidia's lame attempt at a control panel.

Re: Why can't I change resolution to 1280 x 1024?
for a side issue, my ati can control 2 displays, one being svideo out.
if I DO NOT TURN OFF the 2nd video "svideo" I cannot set resolution beyond 1024X768.
disabling the 2nd video "svideo" am able to get to 1280X1024.
if your card can handle 2 displays you might check that out.
