    Hi Guys,

    Its been a long time since I’ve had to ask for your great help, but I’m back. I’ll begin with the basic information I know you’ll need, my computer:

    AMD Athlon64 x 2 Dual Core Processor 4800+
    2.51 GHz, 3.18 GB Ram
    Running XP Pro service pack 3

    Now, here is info for my problem(?):

    GeForce graphics
    Microsoft XP 32bit
    GeForce 6150SE nForce 43
    Driver Version: 306.81

    Monitor - Dell ST2421L

    Now the Problem:
    I upgraded my video driver from NVIDIA website, installed and then the annoyance began. During computer boot, after Desktop appears I hear the error <Beep> sometimes once, sometimes more, BUT Desktop appears and no problem. The problem arises when I open another window, whether its control panel, email or the net, the window does not fill the screen, there is a “gap” between the bottom of the open window, the exact size of my task bar.
    Now, if I adjust my resolution from 1680 x 1050 to 1920 x 1080 the gap disappears UNTILL the next reboot then the gap reappears, so if I adjust 1920 x 1080 down to 1680 x 1050, you guessed it the gap disappears. Please see the attached Screen shots.

    Can you all do your magic and help?

    Thanks & Semper Fi

    After notification of another update from NVIDIA and allowing it to do its thing, the display problem was solved.
