    Hello everyone. I updated my drivers with 191.07. All went well and integrated perfectly except for one anomoly :- I like fairly big icons and text, and I always use a res. of 960 x 600 which is perfect for me. After installing these new drivers, I can't get 960 x 600 any longer. I can get down to 1024 x 768 which (for me) is too small. Below that is 800 x 600 which is a wee bit too large.

    Does anyone know why I can't get 960? I've been all over Nvidia's website, but they craftily don't give "conact us" details. I wiped it out and did it again but the result was the same. I have a Forsa (Nvidia) GeForce 6600 card which has 256 megs of RAM. I have 1 GB of RAM and a P4 2.4 GHz CPU.

    Many thanks

    In the nVidia Control Panel, navigate to the Change Resolution tab under the Display Section. Here, click on the Add Resolutions button and, on the page that pops up, click Create Custom Resolution.

    Set your required resolution, scan rate and color depth.

    The little arrow at the bottom left will allow you to set scan timings if you require custom settings for those too. Just leave it on auto and click the Test button to test your custom resolution. If you are happy with it, you can save it as a regular resolution selection.

    Try it and see if that helps.

    Let us know.
