Nvidia control panel does not have such an option in vista. Powerstrip succeeds on a test pc with vista but fails on the vista laptop. custom timings/advanced is greyed out and uncapping of resolution settings via registry fails.
Any other toosl for custom resolutions?
Ultramon fails, too.

It's a Dell Latitude D830 with nvidia quadro m135 (latest Dell driver) on vista 64 enterprise.

    If none of the above have worked you may well be SOL.

    I would consider using older drives to see if any are more amenable to change.

    I hope this helps !

    Unfortunately, there is no older driver. does not support that very quadro card. I will close this question.
