Hey guys, I just installed a new video card (9600 GSO) but ever since I installed the driver the desktop is cropped down. I checked the resolution and its at the max of 1920X1080. Also, I clicked on 'Resize HDTV desktop' in the Nvidia Control Panel and manually resized it but the color still looks a bit washed out. The weird thing is that right when I click on the 'Resize Desktop' button, I get my normal resolution and screen size for about 2 seconds. Any help would be great.

Nevermind, fixed the problem by clicking on 'Do not resize my desktop'. I couldn't see that option at first because it was under Standard Settings.

Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Manchester @ 2.2GHz ... Biostar TForce4SLI 939 ... 2GB (1GB X 2) XMS Corsair DDR400 ... PNY 9600GSO 768MB ... 2X 7200.2 Seagate Barracuda 160GB ... Cooler Master Centurion 5 ATX ... Antec TruePower Trio 550W ... Windows Vista 32-bit Premium ... Acer H213H 21.5" 1920X1080
