Shutdown PC, remove cable from graphics card and plug in to 2nd DVI port. Or try HDMI or HDMI-DVI connector.

By the way do you have an on-board GPU too?

I believe I do the motherboard I have is an Asus m5a78l-m. I don't have a dvi cord, just hdmi, and I only have one slot for hdmi

Do you have anyone at home that might have changed the cable to on board? :P

See if you are using the correct GPU, and try disabling the on-board in BIOS.

Yep, you got on-board :

I know its on my 560 cause it says the monitor is on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti. I'll try disabling the on board.

So that did nothing as well... I dont think its the monitor though because it knows it needs to be at 1920x1080-60hz instead of 1024x768. Its telling me that it is not at its recommended settings.

Ok, I got one final suggestion:

Enable on-board GPU and switch the cable to it
Uninstall Nvidia drivers
Shut down and remove GPU
Download and run DriveCleanup as admin Drive Tools for Windows
Restart PC and run ccleaner to clean registry
restart and attach the GPU back in
Install the drivers

edit: Oh I got one more, try changing Aero theme to something else

Just looked at nvidia control panel and strangely it says that the monitor is being connected via DVI even though I am using hdmi. The monitor says I am using hdmi but my computer is saying DVI. Obviously this is some sort of driver error right? And I'll try those things now.

Hmm no idea, DVI and HDMI use the same signaling though, only the connector is different. Is both sides of your cable HDMI?

Also it should be noted that I wiped my hard drive and my ssd, installed windows 10, and then back to 7. I dont get why it would still be an issue if I wiped my hard drive and my ssd. Would it make a difference if i put my os on my hd instead of my ssd? Yes my cable is hdmi to mini hdmi and changing areo didnt help either
