Windows 7: 9800GT vertical resolution shrinking problem

20 Nov 2009   #1

9800GT vertical resolution shrinking problem

I have a Samsung 58" plasma series 6 TV being used as a monitor for a PC, connected via HDMI. The graphics card is a gigabyte 9800GT 512mb RAM.

The PC is an I7-920 running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, with driver version 191.07 for Windows 64 bit.

I am trying to run the TV in native resolution of 1920x1080p.

However, I have to resize the screen every few days, setting the vertical height to a lower value each time or the task bar is not visible, and the top of items on the desk top are cut off. At this stage I'm at 1848 x 788.

Any ideas why I can't see the whole desk top @ 1920x1080p and why I have to keep reducing the vertical value to keep the top/bottom visible?

Look for an overscan function in NVIDIA Control Panel or the tv itself and see if that helps.
