Angry Problem with GTX 260

I have the latest drivers. Im trying to change the resolution but it wont let me. It will change it to what i pick. Then when the box appears asking if i want to keep this resolution, i choose yes. But it still reverts back to the previous res. Very freaking annoying. plz help

Trying to change res form 1400x900 to 1366x768 so i can use 32 inch LCd tv

Hmmm... I have no experience with this type of problem, but have you tried changing the res with a normal monitor? Does it do this for all resolutions or just the one you are trying to change it to?

Do you have the latest set of drivers? Is the LCD TV the primary or the secondary monitor?

I had a problem like this with my 26" lcd, also 720P. I had to go to nvidia control panel, change flat panel scaling, and then put it at use nvidia scaling with fixed-aspect ratio. This let me put the resolution at the native res, 1336x768.

Got the latest drivers. Trying to make the lcd Tv primary. It wont even let me change the res on my normal 19in lcd monitor. I can choose a different res but as soon as i click apply it reverts back to 1400x900.

Where in the nvidia panel would i find flat panel scaling, i dont see that option.

Found the problem, the newest driver set is screwy. Used the driver that came with the card and no problems now.
