fireblade Posted March 5, 2008 Report Share Posted March 5, 2008 I am forwarding a message that explain well this trouble. Maybe it is solvable following this step, but i'm too newbe to do on my own. The discussion was taken from this topic: http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=48955 I hope that can be solved here because you know well the driver functions, i am surprised that nvidia haven't already solved this problem.... I have a MSI NX8500GT-TD256EH (GeForce 8500GT) connected to a ViewSonic VX2435WM. The monitor has a HDMI input and I am using the included DVI to HDMI cable. The native resolution is 1920x1200. I'm running Vista 32-bit with 163.69. Before I load the Nvidia drivers, the picture looks normal. However, once I load the drivers, the picture becomes distorted (blurry text, messed up colors, etc). When I look at the resolution notice on the monitor's OSD, it says it is running at 1200p. Before the Nvidia drivers are installed, it says it is running at 1920x1200. I've looked all over the Nvidia control panel and I believe the software thinks the video card is connected to a HDTV, rather than a monitor. It shows that it is being connected via HDMI, even though the output on the video card is DVI. I have connected the monitor to some other other computers and it works fine on both a Radeon 9600 and a MSI 8600GT. They are all connected the same way: DVI output from video card into HDMI input on monitor. When it is connected to these computers, the monitor's OSD correctly recognizes 1920x1200 and the Nvidia control panel shows it is connected via DVI. I have tried a few different versions of the latest ForceWare drivers and also tried BETA drivers. Right now I am running 163.69. Any suggestions on what I can do to get a clear image? Right now the only thing that works is uninstalling the Nvidia drivers and using the standard VGA drivers from Microsoft, which obviously isn't an option.
