Nvidia drivers limit resolution? (a few questions)
how to see if its doing it on my current screen
why does it do it
I just got done with a build, and before my drivers were installed (MSI nvidia 250gts) I noticed the resolution was woefully small, so I cranked it up (generic plug and play 17"), and to my surprise (having used another nvidia card on it before) it allowed me to crank up the resolution to 1600x1200. 1600x1200 being much to large for a 17" I dropped it down to 1024x768, and then installed the drivers. Just for laughs I went to crank the res. back up, and found it had limited it to 1024x768.
I was wondering if anyone had the answer to my 3 questions: 1) why do they do this? 2) how can I tell if its being done to my current screen? 3) is there a way to work around this "artificial" limit?
thanks for the reads/replies
