Best Monitor Resolution no longer available

Yesterday I downloaded and applied the latest XP updates etc. On rebooting the PC, all icons, text etc are larger than normal, and going into the display settings, the maximum resolution is 1280 x 720. But I'm certain that the best should be 1440 x 900? Why has the slider control now lost this maximum option?

Thanks

Have a look in Device Manager see if there is a yellow mark. If there is uninstall your
Display Adapter Driver then reboot
