gary, mine goes to 1920X1080, I don't know why, I'm just happy it does. But with the screen's black background it's really hard to tell if I have a black border in safe mode, but increasing the resolution to the monitor's native resolution, I'm pretty certain I don't have one. There's not a real noticable one in bios.

Lol got ya thinking now enit chap's,
Perhaps it has something to do with the cable used with Nvidia cards. My monitors are 23" 1920x1080 and i use Dual link Dvi cable's. This setup is exsactly the same as it was with my ATI card which displayed the bios in full screen aswell as in safe mode, No black bars.. No option's /setting's needed changing for this.

Does this happen for those of you using Hdmi cables to connect?
I've not actually tried changing the res in safe mode but will do. Changing the scaling setting's of my monitor's OSD from full to fit changes nothing while in windows or the bios.
Thanks for trying to suss it folks

Yup, you have us spinning Ryan


With DVI or HDMI many monitor adjustments are done by the GPU and not available on the monitor's settings, as least that's how mine works. I have DVI, no HDMI cables. If you'd use VGA you should have all adjustments to use. Of course there's the chance I'm full of crap too.

Lols It's lost me too mate
yup same ere mate i've only ever used Dvi to connect so i wouldn't know about the others. From what i've read in the last couple of days it seems that its just an issue that Nvidia have had for a good while but still won't admit and pass it off as your monitors scaling. I do have a little old ell monitor under the stairs but no adapters to connect it to test it.
I just went n checked my daughters rig as i couldn't remember if it was the same. GTX 460 connected via a dual link Dvi cable to a 23" 1920x1080 LG Flatron. Same issue...

Gary is right. My video card does not have a vga connection. I use a vga on the monitor, connect to the video card with vga to dvi adapter and low and behold, full screen bios. I think HDMI will do the same, I will pull out a cable and try in a few.. My monitor doesnt have a hdmi input so I can't test that.

I'm still wondering why it does it. A dvi from my IGPU shows full screen bios, but the DVI from my Nvidia won't
