Or perhaps you could not change the screen resolution for Crysis game only?

I can still change the resolution default, and in game (Crysis)
Although after fiddling with the drivers its saying i dont have a good enough GPU.... sigh

So when i start up the computer, and change the settings in BIOS to use the PCI-Ex instead of the mobo chipset, it cuts out after the loading screen and i get "no Signal Input" on the screen. The GPU sounds like its running hard out and then the fan just stops going...
I'm sorry if I failed to understand your statement above, as I'm not familiar with onboard-graphic motherboard (never use one), may I know what do you mean by change the settings in BIOS to use the PCI-Ex instead of the mobo chipset? Do you mean that there's BIOS setting whether to choose onboard graphic or dedicated card?
And.. May I also know what do you mean by The GPU sounds like its running hard out and then the fan just stops going? Does the vga fan running ok now? I don't think it's good idea to run your computer with vga card's fan stopped..
If the fan indeed failed to work, you may have to return the card to your Supplier/Distributor for warranty purpose..

What I meant about the GPU fan is that the card fan makes lots of noise during the boot process but then seems to slow down drastically as the screen goes blank.
I think its a driver issue but i have tried the NVIDIA driver from the website (169.35), one off a PC magazine CD (174.16) and a leaked driver off some random website (174.85) and none of them seem to make a difference. The card keeps cutting out before the login screen

Managed to fix all the other issues except the resolution being so limited... I dont seem to be able to get a driver to work past 169.35... which sucks! Im sure this is the reason I cant have a higher resolution. I cant use Ntune as i dont have the right mobo... darn it!

When you install your Motherboard Drivers, do you somehow install its onboard-graphic driver too? As you may need to uninstall it first before using Nvidia vga card.. using two instance of different graphic driver may lead to system instability..
Looking at your siggy, I noticed that you use ATi-onboard graphic motherboard.. So my suggestion is (unless somebody else have different idea) to
1. Uninstall your current vga driver, >> reboot
2. Uninstall your motherboard driver >> reboot
3. Then re-install back your motherboard driver without its onboard graphic driver. >> reboot
4. Re-install the latest official Nvidia driver.. >> reboot

I have tried other drivers and i just have to settle with the 169.35, which is the most up to date one on the NVIDIA page. However every time i start up my computer the monitor says it has no signal, and I need to unplug the DVI cable, and plug it back in just to get the screen working... is this a driver issue? or a screen issue? Or should i use the VGA adapter and just settle with analog?
