So, previous to this incident I was running driver version 306.23 with no problems.

I had 3 external monitors on my laptop (sig rig), all of which supported and at their maximum resolution.
1x 20" using VGA
1x 20" using HDMI to DVI
1x 27" using mini display port to display port cable.

So the problem I'm having now is, with the one using display port. I have it plugged in, and it shows it in the Nvidia Control Panel as well as the Screen Resolution settings in windows, however It won't let me extend the desktop onto that display.

When trying with the Nvidia Control Panel, it simply wont let me click the little box next to it to use that monitor, and when I'm using Windows' screen resolution it will let me choose the monitor, however it shows it as a very small resolution, and when I go to apply it it says "unable to save display settings"

Also I'd like to mention, I've tried multiple restarts with/without the display port cable in and still it won't let me save the settings. Any help would be much appreciated.

I'm assuming this is some sort of driver issue because previously I had everything working on 3 external monitors with no problems.

Thanks in advance.
