@ dre@ms:
Well, the snip I gave was of a freshly installed W7, stupid me forgetting to put the Driver installer to a different drive.

The drivers on the site you posted are 196.21 whilst the ones I've tried are 197.45, but will try now, after I reboot again after installing NVIDIA drivers... for the nth time today .

Let me clarify though,
its ok that my monitor doesent have drivers as long as the NVIDIA are installed properly?

The only choice for me there is Use Hardware Default Setting.

Ive tried installing the NVIDIA drivers from Windows Update and also by downloading from NVIDIA's site but are met with the same results (Out of Frequency Range).
You may have to experiment with the Nvidia drivers to get the one that works with your system.

Download the four most recent drivers, including any beta driver, from the Ndvidia website to your desktop.

Uninstall the driver you have currently installed.

Install the latest driver.

If that does not work, uninstall it and install the next driver. Keep this up until you find the one that works. I know this procedure is a PITA; but that is how I got my Nvidia graphics card to funtion properly. And it was not the latest driver nor the beta driver that I ended up using.

AFAIK, Monitor doesnt carry any drivers with it. The VGA drivers u install will identify the monitor and proceed. So, you should concentrate on your VGA drivers rather than Monitor drivers.

Done, but with the same results...

I see, thanks for clarifying.

Anyways, doing another fresh installation, if this still produces the same results, I guess I'll stick to XP SP3 until I get a new Monitor...
Will post aftermath in a few minutes....

somehow [SOLVED]

@CarlTR6: Yeah well, I just really wanted to try Windows 7 that much that I will use all means just to get into the current OS "bandwagon".

Anyways, did another install of W7, now this time after installing all updates + NVIDIA drivers (197.45) then rebooting, pressed F8 during startup, then chose 640x480 video resolution. Now, during the last 6 or so times I've done this in the past, it would result to "Out of Range" in my face by the monitor, this time however, the mouse cursor suddenly appeared on the screen! Then I entered Screen Resolution and set the appropriate settings (1024x768 @70Hz) then finally W7 worked like it should have in the first place

Thanks for the help y'all!
