I just updated to the 197.13 driver. But ever since I did, I have had major resolution problems. On all the old drivers I was able to run a 1440x900 no problem. But now when I create and choose this resolution, it seems like my desktop has about an inch and a half off screen. If I move my mouse to the right, it will reveal more to the right. The same goes for top and bottom, I can't view everything at once and now I have to move my mouse to the edges of the screen to see stuff. I have no idea why this resolution isn't working now. Another thing is that the icons look smushed and distorted. I don't know why the 1440x900 is not working with this new driver....

And I can't rollback to the old one, because apparently I can't play Bad Company 2 unless I have this driver.
I have already uninstalled all drivers and installed this one again, but still nothing.

Any suggestions to getting my resolution back the way it was?

Sorry geekstogo, I fixed it now. What I did is go into the nvidia control panel and change the resolution timing to DMT. It made a huge difference.
