I use an Nvidia Geforce 5200 FX, it has given me problems in the past (specifically, Direct3d was effed up) but I managed to fix them somehow. Today I came home and the sizing of my display was all screwed: http://img86.imagesh...ntitled22vl.png
The blue is how it should be and the red is how it is. I tried my usual trick of shutting it down, turning off the power supply in back, turning the monitor off then back on, then unplugging it from the back, turning it on and off again, plugging it back in, on and off, then start it up again. For some reason that has helped in the past, but it didn't do [bleep] this time. And the display is so messed up I can't even see what I'm doing, so I can't even mess around with the settings for my graphics card. If I could I wouldn't even know what to do. I also tried resizing it using the buttons on the monitor, but they were already at max size and playing with them didnt really change anything. I'm sorry for the lack of explanation in this post, I'm fairly computer literate until something breaks down. So if there are any suggestions anyone has, please let me know.

I would delete the drivers from device manager and download the newest drivers from the nvidia website. The drivers cd you have is probably not up to date so i would not use it. If the problem persiste after installing new drivers the card is probably going bad.
