Windows 7: Problem with a widescreen monitor

Problem with a widescreen monitor

Hey there,

Well, I using a 32" LCD TV as my primary monitor, it runs well at 1360x768 but I got the problem when a game runs in 1024 x 768 or other 4:3 resolution its not possible to stretch the image cause Windows 7 RC put the game in the middle and there are dark areas to both sides of the centered image. Thats really annoying, I never got this problems with 7000 release. Anyone got some idea about this issue? When its a feature, how to turn it off?

Im using a Nvidia 9800 GTX with the latest Windows 7 Beta Drivers from Nvidia.

cheers

Im havin the same exact prob i guess its a bug with the new wddm 1.1 graphics drivers for now a temporary fix is downgrading to the 179.xx versions and running the setup in compatibility mode i recommend the 179.13 from NVIDIA & Laptop News | Latest NVIDIA drivers and related news | laptopvideo2go.com

Well, I dont want to downgrade so I wait for a fix to the issue. Hopefully it dont take too long. Thanks anyway dude.

Maybe I found a workaround for the prob. When you start the Nvidia Control Panel go to the "manage custom resolutions" tab, I entered the resolution of 1024 x 768 and it worked well, no stripes and now I can use the tv options to stretch the screen to full screen. I tested it with the new Nvidia driver 185.85 and the games Gobliiins 4 and Silent Hunter III.
