GTX 560 Twin Frozr II Resolution Problems.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have literally been trying to figure this out for days.

Last week, I built a gaming computer with a 2500k, P8P67 Delux Asus mobo, and Gtx 560 Twin Frozr 2. I installed the nvidia drivers, and got a good screen resolution after rebooting. Four days ago, I booted up to find my resolution had gone down to 1680x1050. I tried to change the screen resolution, however this was the maximum setting. I have tried reinstalling the drivers, tyring a new DVI cable, and just about everything. I simply booted up with lower resolution, and there is no conceivable way to fix it. /g/ provided nothing but "omgashh NVIDIA SUCK BRO GET AD RADEON CARD ARGURH," so I came here. Any help would be appreciated.

Noticed you only have 1 post made on that account, so, you must mean /g from 4chan. You went to 4Chan and expected intelligent thought with no trolling ?

If in fact your monitors native res is higher than 1680x1050 this would likely have to be a driver issue.

Driversweep the Nvidia drivers off and reinstall, also, try 266.58 vs 270.61, just as another test. But, basically, the point is to try more than 1 driver version, 266.58 has been the most stable for people but trying others is also warranted.

Though, this issue doesn't seem like a specific version is the cause, it's more along the lines that the drivers didn't install correctly or corrupted.

As a last resort try another monitor on the same pc and see what happens, logically, one who's native res is NOT 1680x1050 as if it was then you wouldn't know if the problem's occurring or if it's actually displaying the correct native res.

Another thing to test is try another output on the card, trial and error is a great way to test if you add some more logic to it such as common causes.

But, only make 1 change per test, as if you don't it would be a flawed test.

And welcome to the forums, fill out the specs of your rig and add them to your sig.

I am installing 266.44 now; if it fails I will try some of the ones you mentioned.

Make sure you select "Perform a clean install" in the installation menu. Forgot to mention that.

First thing first: Make sure that your monitor's max resolution is not 1680 x 1050. That could be your problem right there. If that's not your issue, everything Ascii said should help. Best of luck, and welcome to the forums.
