Here's the deal. I went to upgrade my nvidia forceware drivers, just because they were pretty old (yes I know. . .If it ain't broke don't fix it. . .). So I downloaded the newest version (162) and uninstalled my old version (I think it was 93 or so). Installation of 163 went on without a hitch, but on reboot I found out about the problems with displaying 1440 x 900. I got it to work eventually through some custom timings, but it still wouldn't work in games. So, I figured I'd just uninstall and downgrade. That's where I've been so far.
Things I've tryed:
-Uninstalling through add/remove and then installing new ones.
-Uninstalling through add/remove and following directions on tweakguides.com (http://www.tweakguides.com/NVFORCE_3.html)
-Uninstalling, then using regcleaner
-Using driver cleaner 1.5, following the directions.
Nothing has worked. By not working, I mean this: When I boot up, I get no difference in the drivers being used for the monitor. The drivers seem to be installed (they have an add/remove entry) but there is simply no difference otherwise. I can't get to nvidia settings at all. The current driver being used is called "Vgasave"
Event Viewer doesn't reveal any results that seem related to nvidia. . .Unless you have any specific things to look for.
Any ideas? Maybe a repair install or something. . .I'm really starting to be bothered by looking at things at 1280 x 800 on a widescreen monitor.
