Hello. I am having a problem with my display, I have gtx 650 ti boost and when i upgraded the driver to 314.22 my tv only displays invalid format. I tried reinstalling the old driver but there's no difference. I also tried installing in safe mode. Please help!

I read on similar issues and I learned that "invalid format" means the tv cannot handle the resolution. My question now is how do I access the nvidia control panel to change the resolution? I tried it in safe mode but i cant access it there. hope someone can help me :( 

Thanks

To change the format on the tv you would have to go into the Catalyst control center. On the left pane you will see digital flat panel. Choose the format that your TV says it can handle with HDMI.

If you are using Win 7, press F8 during startup and choose vga mode. Then set the resolution correctly and re-boot.

If you having this problem,start your computer press the window button from your key board if you have any game start that like i have vice city on 5 numberon my list i prees down button 4 times game starts but screen upside down then i prees ctrl+alt+down screen on. Now you can set screen resolution.2. If you have password on your computer type your password and press enter and do same as in 1 st step.
If you have no 3D Game then this will not work.
