OK. Did you use the NVidia control panel to do that, or the Windows screen resolution option?

Hi Par,

I was lookin around and found this http://www.wikihow.com/Disable-the-O...-Pavilion-6630

Its for an HP Pavilion, but the steps are the same for most PC's that come with on-board graphics. Did you follow steps similar to this, or did you install the new card straight away?

Regards,
Golden

Which is what you are supposed to use since it is Nvidia software you are using.

Which you already know.

I don't know why it won't hold. It could be a borderline setting. It should work but won't quite do it.

The only thing that MIGHT work that I know of is to try it with 1680x1200 at 75MHz. Set on the same page as the resolution.
It either will or won't work.

It makes it refresh faster.

I have to use 75MHz as that is suggested but the 60 works. It is jerky to me at 60MHz but my wife can't see a difference.
My last idea for tonight anyway.
