Here's the scoop. I have an Nvidia Geforce 6800. I recently downloaded and installed the new drivers for it from Nvidias website. The drivers are version 84.21. Everything is working fine except for one small problem... Nothing runs at 800 x 600. If I try running a program that uses these specs, then I get an error message on my monitor. The problem is that my monito, while in 800 x 600 resolution, only supports up to an 85 Hertz refresh rate. The graphics card, while in 800 x 600 resolution, tries to push the refresh rate to something like 107! So, I am about to install the old drivers, though I don't want to. If there are any suggestions could someone please help?

By the way, this really bugs me because the max resolution for Diablo 2 is 800 x 600. This means that I cannot even play it anymore.

Have you tried to create a customize your settings with the Nvidia Display Properties?

See this link for more details.

How do I create a custom resolution for my monitor?

Hope that helps.
