NVIDIA Display settings are not available You are not currently using a display attached to an NVIDI
Out of the blue I think the screen flashed (was on windows desktop) and the resolution changed and now have the errors

[b]NVIDIA Display settings are not available

You are not currently using a display attached to an NVIDIA GPU[/b]

And in the device manager:

[b]Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)[/b]

I think I was running the latest beta drivers at the time. This is a new system and I haven't even got around to installing any games yet. Uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers doesn't do anything. Whats the current method for totally cleaning out drivers?

Card is a Gigabyte GTX 560 and Windows 7 64bit

Download the latest driver from Nvidia but do not install it, only save it.

Disconnect from the internet.

Run the uninstall for Nvidia from Control Panel.

Come up in Safe Mode.

Go to Device Manager and right-click the video card, uninstall driver, and remove if it asks.

Stay disconnected from Internet, come up regular and install new driver that you downloaded earlier.

That should do it.

Thanks for the help but I was just coming back here to post that the problem has already been resolved by using system restore back to a point where I had the latest WHQL drivers installed. I suspect it might of been a problem with the latest beta release drivers as I was trying them to resolve another (minor) issue. It wasn't long after I installed the latest beta's when the problem arose. Although I couldn't say for sure as this is a new system build/install and it could of been another device driver installed or setting mucked but doubtful. I did try uninstalling/reinstalling the older drivers but that didn't do anything, only system restore worked. I suspect that windows had the hardware failure logged in the registry why changing drivers wouldn't fix it.
