Hey phil, would this be the best method to use? I'm downloading driver sweeper as we speak.

1) Uninstall your GPU drivers
2) Restart Computer
3) Enter Safe Mode..Tap F8 during Post
4) Once in Safe Mode> Run Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper > Select nVidia (not nForceChipset/For ATI select ATI, ATI CCC, ATI WMD)> start Cleaning
5) Do step 7 Twice with Driver Cleaner Pro - With Driver Sweeper do it once.
6) Restart Computer> Cancel out of New Found Hardware Wizard
7) Navigate to the Location of your Drivers and Install.

The above is one way of doing it and is fine, it is not how I do it but no matter as long as it works.

Sorry about the delay in coming back to you.
Try changing it in the Nvidia control panel, go to "adjust desktop size and position" and click "Change to native resolution".

Thanks that set my display back to 1680x1050, I also set my display font to medium. So far everything is running great.


Also the text in IE looks a little wonky, is there anyway I can fix this?

Nevermind I fixed it, Turns out it was the style the website was set to. One more question and I'll get out of your hair.

What DPI settings should I use when running in 1680x1050 resolution? Thanks for the all help phill.
