Thanks. I had already found the new nVidia driver
. But I also just tried the Modder but it did not seem to change anything. The max resolution was still 1280 x 960. I then decided to uninstall the nVidia driver, reboot and do a clean install. When I rebooted the default VGA windows driver on a non-PnP display was in charge and it listed 1280 x 1024 so I tried it and it works! Reinstalled the nVidia drivers
and got kicked back to 1280 x 960 with a warning that my monitor did not support any higher. If I uninstall the nVidia driver, how do I purge the leftover settings so it is forced to start with a clean slate and at least accept the chosen display setting in use when it is installed.
Seems to me several years ago I used a utility that allowed you to test various display modes and adjust the driver menu to add modes that worked but were not listed in the menu. You had to be careful and go up one step at a time to minimize the chances of killing your monitor. Does anyone remember where it came from and is it still available?
