Custom Resolutions

Custom resolutions allow end users to the ultimate flexibility to add virtually any resolution and refresh for their display. If users want to use a unique resolution or refresh rate that is not available through windows control panels, this control will let users manually add any mode. The software will perform a check to make sure the end user defined resolution and refresh rate are supported by the graphics card.

The steps below will show you how to add a custom resolution:
  • Browse to the NVIDIA Display Properties by right mouse clicking on the Windows desktop and selecting NVIDIA Display.

    WARNING: If you are unsure about what your are doing, do not accept the End User License Agreement and do not proceed.
  • Type in the desired settings for a custom resolution.

    Figure 3. Add Custom Resolutions dialog box.

  • Click OK. The software will now perform a check to ensure the mode you have added is safe. If it is the mode is safe, the user will be prompted with a notification of a successful addition of that mode. If it is not, the user will be prompted with a notification that that mode is not safe to add.
