Finished my first build ever last night. After windows finished installing I installed drivers for my gtx 660. After the drivers finished I restarted and then the display quality was blurry/out of focus. I searched all over today trying to fix this but solutions I have came across did not work. I've tried current and previous versions of the drivers and also have changed just about every setting with worse results or either no difference.

Please help! I'm starting to get a headache staring at this screen.

What drivers did you installed ? What is your system specs ? What cable are you using VGA, DVI, HDMI ?

Try to disable all underscan or overscan or resizing in nvidia control panel. And play with the native resolution of TV.

Yeah, I already tried both of those. Overscan was already off on my tv and I tried every resolution setting in the nvidia control panel and in the windows control panel. I'm still getting the blurry crappy
Display.

Ok, another thing to try : open NVidia control panel-->expand display-->adjust desktop color settings-->on the right hand pane-->3. apply the following enhancement-->Content type reported to the display-->select desktop programs, save the settings, look how it works.

Another thing though I forget, but you have to select PC to TV or something like that. Good luck.

Thanks for the help, unfortunately it still didn't work. I think it's affecting more than just the display as well. I tried running 2 games, crysis and splinter cell black list and both of them crashed almost instantly before even booting up anything.

Finally found a fix. I'm not sure what exactly is wrong with the Nvidia drivers but, this guy seems to know. I just hope anyone with the same problem finds this. I searched for days trying to fix this issue. This worked like a charm!
