Windows 7: Big black bar on side of screen after installing geforce drivers

Big black bar on side of screen after installing geforce drivers

I just started up my new computer and everything was fine. The monitor i'm using that's getting this problem is a Wacom Cintiq 21ux drawing tablet, and the video card i'm using is Asus GeForce GTX 780 Ti.

Everything was fine until I installed the latest Asus drivers, and after I restarted my computer this big black bar appeared on the side of my Cintiq screen. Using the monitor controls to adjust the display did nothing, nor did going into the nvidia settings and attempting to push the screen over that way. My second monitor is unaffected

For a while I was able to get it back to normal by reverting to a smaller resolution, but after trying to push it over with the nvidia settings even that doesn't work any more.



Thoughts?

Edit: Just to note before the drivers were installed I didn't have dual monitors working, so that might have something to do with it?

It should be with the aspect radio set in the Control Panel.

You must ask NVIDIA GPU users because I forgot how and I'm using ATi graphics card atm.

Adjusting the aspect ratio via NVIDIA control panel does nothing, unfortunately. Same with aspect ratio on my monitor

As an aside, i've noticed that my monitor display settings will still go past the black bar when i'm trying to adjust position, it's just my computer that's the problem. My display won't follow my monitor settings

Found a fix, but I don't know if it's temporary or will just bring up further problems down the road. I used the NVIDIA control panel to create a customized resolution that's my monitor's native resolution (1600 x 1200), but at 59hz instead of 60hz. Will there be any complications with having it at 59hz or am I good?
