Hi,
Two days ago my recent build jacked up my Windows 7 desktop resolution. Windows is not allowing my Asus VE248H, which had been running at 1920x1080 just fine, to display the desktop in any resolutions except 800x600 and 1024x768. I'm running a GTX 570 and have reinstalled the latest beta, stable, and the previous stable build. No luck (296.10 was driver in use when problem first occured... had been using it since release without error). What am I missing here?

Specs:
i5 2500k
EVGA GTX 570
8gb DDR3
ASUS Maximus IV Gene Z micro-ATX mobo
750GB hard drive w/40gb Intel SSD

When you go into the Nvidia control panel and under the change resolution tab you don't have the option to go any higher than 1024x768? Hve you run the install disk that came with the monitor? Is the monitor brand and model listed in the control panel? Did you try the drivers that were previous to the 296.10? Have you completely deleted the drivers and then do a reinstall of them? Take out the video card and reseat with the power off and clear cmos? As a last resort a reinstall of Windows?

Nvidia control panel does not display higher resolutions, only 800x600 and 1024x768. Creating a custom 1920x1080 resolution through the control panel results in a weird picture... even though the monitor is a 1920x1080 monitor forcing that resolution results in a picture that is compressed horizontally (picture is tall and skinny). Control panel lists the monitor as 'generic non pnp'. I have tried multiple drivers and have deleted drivers and then re-installed. Have not removed card or cleared cmos next will try that next. Did do a a windows system restore to several days prior to the beginning of this problem and still no luck.

Thanks for the help so far.

What cable are you using to hook up your monitor to your graphics card? Are you sure you aren't connecting your monitor to the motherboard?

Using DVI cable. Tried both DVI ports on the 570 with no luck.

Did try running the latest driver from Nvidia (301.24). No luck. Windows still registers the monitor as a 'generic pnp' monitor locked at 1024x768. I can't find drivers online for the ve248 monitor. Has anyone experienced anything like this before?

That's 'generic NON-pnp monitor'...
