I'm pretty new to Bleeping computer, and i was referred by a friend to see if you could lend me a hand with a driver problem. Well, closer to an annoyance than a problem really.
I have a old Nvidia driver installed that came with my 8800GTS video card, and i am really preferable to the 1600 x 1200 resolution, unfortunately, some of the more recent games such as Call of Duty: World at War, have required me to update drivers to the latest version, where in lies my problem. This new version has pulled my resolution to 1650 x 1250, and i cannot go back to the way it was without uninstalling this driver, and reinstalling the old one. This new resolution makes many of my shows i watch on the monitor square instead of widescreen (i use a 22inch widescreen, and i want the full benefit of it).
My question to you is: is there any way i could get my 1600 x 1200 resolution back without uninstalling this driver, or somehow changing some settings*? or any other methods possible.

*note: in the settings tab of display properties, 1600 x 1200 is not able to be selected.

Thank you :thumbsup:

See if you can do this:

Select "Start" > "All Programs" > "Nvidia Corporation" > "Nvidia Control Panel" > "Control Panel" This will open your Nvidia Control Panel. To the upper left of the window go to "Select a Task", and under that expand "display" by selecting it.

Under display select "Manage custom Resolutions" in the window select the "Create" button. This dialogue box will allow you to create a custom resolution for your HDTV video out.

I don't know if that will change your monitor's resolution in the same way; however this is a start for you to get going in the right direction.

Also here is a Google Page of Links which will take you the Nvidia forums where I'm sure your question can be answered with more authority.

http://www.google.com/search?q=nvidia+foru...lient=firefox-a

You can also find out about updating your drivers there as well.


Hope this helps!
