I have an ASUS LCD monitor with native resolution of 1920x1080. I have used it for months without problems. I recently switched computers, but kept the same hard drive. I went into the BIOS and changed the video controller to PCI. I can go into NVIDIA control panel and see that the resolution is 1920x1080, but it shows up as being way too large for the screen. the only way I can get it to do 1080p correctly is by selecting 1080p HDTV in the NVIDIA control panel. The problem being that the settings for that won't save and I have to do that on every reboot. I have current drivers on video card. Any help would be appreciated.

Interesting. What sort of connection are you using to hook up your monitor to your gfx card? For that matter, what model is your gfx card?

did it originally work on a different video card? i remember having all kinds of issues with older cards like that and any sort of widescreen resolutions that didn't exist at the time

It originally worked on the 5200, I transferred the card over, forgot to mention that. With the new driver that came out for it, the resolution was supported.

Try reinstalling the driver.

Are you using the exact same driver version as you did when it worked? You could always try several. And make sure in the Windows display output and control panel it has the correct refresh rate selected. I remember for one of my monitors, my card would go to 59Hz and make the display the wrong size.

Yes, its the same driver that worked before, i don't have an older version to roll back to, and the newest driver is the only one I know of that supports 1080p because of the GFX card.
