    control panel scaling stuck to use display

    The NV control panel under Display Size And Postiion won't change the scaling device to anything but the display. i Apply the change to activate the cards scaling, the message reads click ok or display will revert to the old choice in 30 seconds, , and after oking, then the button choice actually moves out of video card and back to display! Turning off scaling doesn't work either , button reverts to display, and it did not with 186 but not since 190 and above, Got frustrated up enough to ask finally. I noticed text was sharper, causing less eyestrain. giving me more time, without scaling. Could my monitor controls be overriding anything?

    After some searching in the inf and the registry I found out how to block 1280@75hz :D
    edited HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000\NV_R&T

    and added the following line at the end:

    R&T0000=1280,1024,*,75,*,SAM02B6,NONE

    * SAM02B6 = pnp id of my monitor, a samsung 245B+ 24" lcd

    after rebooting 1280 @ 75 hz is no longer selectable in the control panel, only 60hz remains and 3d mark also uses the 60hz setting now, instead of the 75hz one that my screen does not like... so fixed it :)

    Yeah they're 1.1 but I found out there is no control panel installed and they're incompatible w/ nHancer.

    So back to the 196.34. I'm getting occasional stutter in BF2 and AF is not working properly.

    Scaling seems fixed though which is good.

    did you uninstall your old drivers properly. you need to use driver sweeper in safe mode to eliminate any remnants.

    Did you extract the drivers to your system drive first and run the installer, or did you install them from device manager?

    Aero is not 3D its 2D so it should stay in 2D mode if drivers are not borked.

    Crysis is not as bad as the latest WHQL drivers but these are still giving stutters and bad framerate.

    195.xx drivers are only good for the latest games Dirt2,Avatar etc but they don' work well with the old games. Download these drivers only if you want to play new games otherwise back to 186.18.

    See my clan mates want to play BFBC2, and these drivers are the best for it. But since i got all the unlocks and highest rank in the beta i'm not going to play it anymore. However a guild mate in AoC said he doesnt have problems with these drivers so im confused. Maybe its because i have my GTX285 overclocked??

    Seems like your overclock isn't stable for this game. The drivers work very well here, using an overclocked GTX 285 too.
