ASUS GTX570 DirectCU II Fullscreen issue

I received my new ASUS GTX570 DirectCU II this morning and installation was a breeze. Played skyrim for a couple hours and then went off to a wu-tang concert. Upon returning home I wanted to watch some of the videos I recorded. Using VLC I found that when I went into full screen mode the video was stretched to a larger resolution then my monitor. Since then I have tried using windows media and that didnt work so I reinstalled windows, all my drivers, and windows media. I'm still having the same problem. Also when coming out of the overstretched full screen my video card freezes for about 3 seconds and gives me a solid black screen followed by a minor loss in graphics quality.

  2. You did uninstall the old drivers before uninstalling old card ?
  3. No I didnt, the fresh install of windows wouldnt have done that for me??
  4. To OP - did you try changing the resolution in the nvidia control panel?
  5. Yes, I have lowered resolution and same issue happens. I have also tried under scaling my screen but it seams to still overcompensate and stretch the image.

    Did you try to use a different player like Zoom Player?
  7. I've used windows media, vlc, and also just discovered YouTube videos do the same thing to me.

    I also just uninstalled all my drivers and current nvidia software and had no problem. Reinstalled everything and now in having the problems again.
  8. So after a few days trying different cables, monitors, resolutions, signal strengths, and almost changing registry data, all it took was changing the settings in the Nvidia control panel.

    Display - Adjust Desktop Color Settings - Content Type Reported to Display

    I changed it from "Auto-Select" to "Desktop Programs" and the problem has been solved.
  9. Thank you for the info, I also have an ASUS GTX570 DirectCU II and Nvidia control panel, but I don't see the option "Content Type Reported to Display" under
    "Adjust Desktop Color Settings "... I have only one display.
  10. I think it has something to do with having a HDTV as my monitor. When I hooked up my roommates monitor to my computer everything was fine.
  11. Best answer
    Yes you are correct. I use a regular DVI display and I don't have any video resolution problems. That also explains why I don't have this setting in the Nvidia control panel, but thanks to you I will know what to expect if I will connect a HDTV to my card :)
