GTX280 1080p Display

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Just had a GTX280 in my sigrig on a TV and it has a huge black window around it when running...

Imagine running 640x480 in the middle of the screen with the rest of the display black, well thats what mine does but on 1920x1080... but yet my 8800GT's can do 1920x1080 on full screen?

Anybody know why?

Sounds like either the Tv isnt 1080P compatible or you didnt raise the Res on the TV in Display Properties.

In windows I have it on 1280x960 and when gaming I crank it upto full hd.
Just weird that two 8800's can run it full but not a GTX280.

go into Nvidia Control Panel

Manage Custom Resolutions

Check the Box for Force HD resolutions

then click Apply

does that solve your issue?

Guys, I've had this problem too, and the only way I've solved it completely is by having the DVI to HDMI dongle thing, and an HDMI cable going from that to my TV.

Hope this helped.
