Vista, Nvidia 7950gt & Desktop Re-size

Recommended Posts

I am using Vista Home Premium and a nvidia 7950GT graphics card with the latest beta driver (100.64) connected to a HDTV (Sony SXRD KS70R200) via DVI -> HDMI cable.

I can not see any settings to adjust the desktop size on the TV and due to overscan, I can not see the taskbar, nor any edge.

Is it possible with Vista and nvidia? If so, how?

I'm unsure of vista as I'm trying my best not to upgrade to it.... but M$ reasons aside...

In XP there is an option under the display device advanced properties for overscan correction.

Unsure how to get to it in Vista

I think this is a limitation with the nVidia drivers atm....

Resolved Issues

See “Changes in Version 100.65” on page 7 for a list of resolved issues.

Limitations in This Release

The following are features that are not currently supported or have limited

support in this driver release:

• Refresh Rate Precision

The current driver programs the hardware timing for a 59.94 Hz refresh rate

to be the same as the timing used for a 60 Hz refresh rate.

• Pan & Scan

This driver does not support the Pan & Scan feature. (Pan & Scan is the

process of panning across the desktop in order to display a desktop on a

monitor with lower resolution).

• Full‐featured HDMI Support

The following are known problems that will be fixed in a future driver


• There are some known image quality issues.

• Noise and pixel corruption occur under Clone or Dualview modes.

• Only stereo audio is supported; 5.1 surround is not supported.

• INF Support for Restricted Timings

This driver version does not support the use of Restricted Timing settings

(R&T strings) in the INF to control mode validation and/or mode setting for

custom mode/adapter/monitor combinations. This capability is planned for

a later driver release.

• Overscan/Underscan Support

The ability to display the entire desktop on a TV is not supported—the

desktop will be masked instead.
