Windows 7: Windows 7 Widescreen Nvidia drivers - Problem

Windows 7 Widescreen Nvidia drivers - Problem

I just installed Windows 7 and installed the latest Nvidia drivers. I can run at standard resolutions but when I try to switch to native wide screen resolutions, my monitor indicates the "input is not supported".

Widescreen resolutions work fine in Safe mode or when the Nvidia drivers are not installed. I have tried using older versions of the drivers but it seems nothing seems to be working.

Is anyone else having this problem?

System specs:
-Windows 7, 32 bit
-nVidia 9600GT (driver version 190.32 WHQL)
-nForce 780i
-Asus AL1916W display

Just for your info safe mode does not load graphic drivers so wide screen resolution running correct in safe mode is not what you want(that's the normal 4:3 giving you stretched look)

1st Set the monitor to its native resolution from the monitor control panel (menu) then in nvidia control panel> display> change resolution> you will see the option of your monitor mentioned as native 1680x1050 (numbers may be different in your case as per your native resolution)

After doing this go to
display> adjust desktop size & position
select use my display's built in scaling

That should do the job.
