First time poster here...
I'm at my wits end with my new rig.
Palit 8800 GT
4GB RAM DDR800
350GB WD SATA
Viewsonic VX2835wm Monitor
I've installed VISTA, and it was fine for the first couple of days. And then I updated it to SP1 and nvidia's 175.16 drivers for my card...
this is when the problems started!
a)my bios post screen is now shrunk to like 30% of what it was fullscreen
b)i'm unable to scale any resolution(other than my 1900x1200) i choose to display in fullscreen. I usually end up with black bands around the edges
I've tried Nvidias overscan patch but that did buggerall. And ive also changed the install script as per http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=58483&pid=330319&mode=threaded&show=&st=&#entry330319
Nothing has worked.
