New drivers don't fill up my monitor
i just updated to the new drivers, and for some reason, the 1920x1080 resolution no longer fills up my monitor like it did before. It now shows a black border around the screen it, at least 1 inch thick.
I'm running an XFX GTX280 card, with an Acer H223HQ 22"widescreen monitor.

The strangest thing is, when I lower the resolution it fills up perfectly. I can't fill the monitor up by using the automatic monitor controls, because they get blocked out.


Anyone? Thanks in advance!

I can't find the resize screen option, I'm on Vista64bit by the way.

That solution doesn't seem to work for me on Vista. It's under resize flat panel display scaling in our control panel and the monitor seems to not want to give control to the hardware. It always goes back to the monitor controlling it. Do we all have 16:9 monitors or monitors running in 1920x1080? Just curious

If your monitor has HDTV capability (got that little "Found new HDTV" notice), you probably need to open up the NVCPL, look at the bottom of its menu at Resize Desktop...

...and choose to NOT resize. If you leave it ON and resize the desktop properly, it just reverts back to OFF anyway.

Such was the case for my Samsung. Go figure...

Yep, mine is a 1920x1080 screen and I have the same issue.

I think jaafaman has nailed it with the HDTV detection. I remember seeing an HDTV detected message when I updated the drivers. This reinforces my belief that this is an overscan issue.

I am on Vista 64 and I also cannot change any options on the flat panel scaling tab, nor do I even have an option for "Resize desktop" on that tab like others seem to.

Same here. Mine is Acer 22" H223HQ.

Here is my control panel for resizing the desktop. Just right click on your desktop and then chose NVIDIA Control Panel.

I have the same monitor, could you send me a copy of your Nvidia profile, so I can load that and see if it fixes anything? I can't find any resizing either.
