Need some help Nvidia GTX 660 ti

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Wasn't sure where to put this, I chose here because it was the only spot I saw for "Nvidia"... Either way, Here is my basic system info for this question, which I haven't been able to resolve or able to find a prepackaged answer.. Either way on to my specs.. as for the my gfx card, as mentioned in the title its gtx 660 ti im pretty sure its the performance edition It has shown up as that in gpu oc software, I am currently on stock settings and bios, the driver version is Gforce R331 Game Ready Driver, Version: 331.82, bios has been re-flashed to stock after a failed and unstable overclock with unlocked bios, even underclocking was unstable with unlocked for my card/system etc..... I will include some screenshots to help navigate around my newbieness.. I got a new tv to use as my monitor, I chose plasma for pc gaming reasons, it seemed to be the best choice for the price range, However the native resolution is 1024x768 running at 60hz, it is a plasma by samsung, 43" 720p, the Model# for the tv is PN43F4500.. The problem I have is that in the nvidia control panel, I have my tv hooked up with an hdmi cable to the hdmi ports, no dvi converters etc, however the native resolution shows up in the PC section in control panel for resolution and not in the Ultra HD,HD,SD section.. I was told by the manual of both nvidia and the tv to use native settings where possible.. But I am confused about what the PC section is and why it is not recognizing my tv as default native hd or even sd with it being connected through hdmi, So basically would it harm the tv or make anything unstable to use a manual setting or one in the list of the non-native settings in the Ultra HD,HD,SD section even tho for some reason my native default is in the PC section I am getting audio and video through the hdmi connection on the native pc setting, but was kinda wondering if the reason it isn't showing a high definition native default res, had anything to do with my cable being too slow, or something? Ok here are the screenshots that provide more info on what I am talking about, I have a hard time explaining questions, so I have found that visuals help with my disorganization.. Any help will be helpful, thanks. smile.gif

<- This is what it is showing me in Nvidia Control Panel

<- nvidia experience driver info

<- Nvidia experience System Info

<-GPU-Z GFX details

<- GPU-Z Sensors Info

<-This is the part I am having a difficult time understanding, I have reviewed the nvidia manuals for my gfx card, the nvidia control panel, etc.. and the tv manual about this and have done various searches trying to find out as much as I could before posting here.. What I am trying to do is to have the control panel and windows desktop recognize the tv as being in the ultra hd,hd,sd resolution category, I have changed the res manually but the closest listed settings to the native resolution are for 1080p and everything is so small and blurry that I can't even see so I had to change it back to the PC native resolution.... It is acting like I am using dvi connection, instead of hdmi, either that or the hdmi is acting as dvi for some reason. Either way could someone shine some light on this im very confused?

I figured it out, blah.. Apparently plasmas use some sort of triangle pixels, and are at a 4:3 ratio which stretches to 16:9.. the fixes I found were to use the 720p resolution in nvidia which downsamples or whatever the native resolution from 1024x768 which is the common resolution for both 720ps and 1080p's in some plasmas, change the windows and nvidia resolutions to match 1280 x 720 resolution , and some how by changing the hdmi source name to pc dvi or pc it fixed the blurry text.. hdmi in plasma to pc is complicated, this is going to be fun learning more about.. smile.gif I will be taking the post down soon, just wanted to update first.
