mintys1, looking through the Nvidia forums, this looks like a long time recurring problem that gets triggered simply by doing an update, doesn't matter what version to what version.

Did you do a Custom => Clean install? - you might try that first. Uninstall the current driver via Programs and Features, then do a Custom => Clean install of the 337.88 driver. That should get rid of the preferences.

Then try setting the resolution to another setting, try both the same aspect ratio, and if that doesn't work try a resolution that is a different aspect ratio to 1920x1080.

Another trick is to set a Custom resolution in the Nvidia control panel. You have a JH, so you can try a different refresh at 1920x1080. If you have a Chi Mei screen you can go up to 100hz, above 85hz stops moire pattern flashing - and if you have an AUO screen you can go up to 70hz.

The idea is to try using a different preference setting to see if that stops the aspect ratio mismatch.

hmscott...yes have now tried a clean install of nividia, tried the refresh rate change etc..and still the problem persists.
Might just bite the bullet and start over aaaah!

mintys1, sorry to hear that... hopefully you can figure out the cause so it doesn't happen again after the reload... I haven't seen that problem reported here before. But, googling finds plenty of examples of the same issue on other hardware.

Let us know how it works out 🙂
