Having been forced to update to new Nvidia drivers due to frequent crashes, I seem also to have lost the ability to set up a custom resolution because it just isn't available, in the manual it says something about it being an issue with a DVI cable and how it can't transfer that information properly or somesuch however, I've been using 1680 by 1050 since I got this thing and now have to run in 1600 by 1020, which causes severe fuzzyness and distortion, I was wondering is there an outside way to set up the screen resolution, preferably one that allows one to type in the resolution.

On my graphics card (MX420) you can right click on the desktop go to your NVIDIA Display click on Screen Resloutions & Refresh Rates click add custom resloutions and enter it in there.

:agreed

I'm not sure how 30px d/f is causing such bother, though...

On older driver sets the option was available, hwowver it was removed in the latest version. I found something on the net about reg editing and entered new regiestries, however I don't think it solved the problem. And the 30 pixel difference doesn't sound like much, but on this monitor it's the difference between blurry and not.

if you're using an nvidia card, download nvtweak. it'll open up the custom res feature. just google nvtweak.

Try looking for Drivers for your monitor, a lot of monitors that require odd resolutions usually have a driver that will give you that sort of options.

thnx, I found that it does need OEM drivers for the card, though the errors have come back, so I might need that nvtweak program after all. Thnx to all
