In hat case, you wouldn't be able to connect with a digital cable.

My next (and only other) suggestions would be to update/reinstall your monitor's driver.

I was just looking through the user manual for your monitor and it says that you can use the On Screen Display to see what input signal it is receiving from your card. What does that report? If it is not report correctly then you probably have a driver issues. I would uninstall your video card drivers and then run driver sweeper and do a clean install of the GPU drivers. If this doesn't work then you can always see if MAYBE viewsonic has XP drivers for the monitor (sometimes Windows XP native drivers don't work properly for all resolutions)

Just a thought.

I think I just fixed it. In a wild stab in the dark, I created a custom resolution, 1440 x 900, 32-bit colors, with a 65Hz refresh rate. Its displaying properly now. Since the manual recommended 60Hz, I made a custom resolution at 61Hz (since 60Hz wont display properly)...and lo and behold its working. I feel like I'm kind of cheating but hey, it works. Is there any downside to having a refresh rate of 61Hz? Or should I bump it to a round number like 65Hz? According to the manual, recommended is 60, which I can't use.

On screen display is receiving an analog signal from the display. I've already done clean installs of my video drivers which didn't seem to change anything. I'll take a look at the Viewsonic website but I didn't see anything before.

There shouldn't be any problems running your refresh rate at 61hz...

What can I do to get the proper resolution so it fits on the screen?
What if you set it as above, then restart the rig Or hit auto setup on the monitor, if you have it!

Well, as far as I can tell everything is fixed. The only thing I can complain about is that my logon screen is a little wonky (because I use Logon Studio from Wincustomize but that's a minor complaint). Thanks for everyone's help!
