Driver Issue?

I just did a fresh clean install of Windows 7 Professional x32 all my specs are on my profile thing. The first thing I did was update my drivers to the newest verified stable version 260.99 I believe for my EVGA GTX 260, Im having trouble changing my resolution. I can change it but the task bar wont adjust. I set it to the highest resolution and I can barely see the top of the task bar. I have a 42" 1080p HDTV using the HDMI connector. The funny thing is changing my resolution worked perfectly until I had to format my hard drive today. I tried using older versions of my video drivers and it still didnt work, should I bother going back further on the drivers or is there something im missing here?

Right click the desk top in an open area. Then go down list and click Nvidia control panel.

Highlight the monitor or tv if you are using both choose TV. Select the HD resolution you want.
Now if using as a monitor you may have to use a PC resolution- not sure on that.

A monitor hooked up you highlight the monitor and select PC resolution.

I'm not using TV set up but I show a 720 and 1080 option in Nvidia control panel with my GTX460.

Driver issue with my GTX 260?
I'm having some weird things happening to my screen every once in a while. It has nothing to do with my card being overheated or damaged, I'm fairly certain of that. I talked to a friend about it and he thought it was probably a driver issue. It can happen at pretty much any time, whether I'm...
