Windows 7: 1680x1050 display set to 192x1080 desktop size, not res

What laptop do you have?

There exists no option to "hide modes" in the Window's display properties. Only in my nvidia properties am I allowed to "hide modes", but that's only in regards to hz, not screen resolution.


***edit***

Under your display properties, "make text appear larger or smaller", what setting are you using?

Its a Fujitsu/Siemens Lifebook S7110 but its running XP atm. But that should'nt change the fact that its capable of viewing the desktop like i explained.

But in Win7 Screen resolution>advanced settings>monitor>uncheck "Hide modes.."
But although i disable the hiding of these "unsupported modes" both in above mentioned and in the nvidia driver, i cant get it to react the same way as this intel laptop.

But unless there's anyone else who knows if this can be done with an nvidia based win7 machine, i think i'll just have to conclude that it cannot be done with nvidia

If you try to do that, the monitor may be damaged. The Nvidia control panel may have an option but I doubt it.
