Okay, so let's get the hardware out of the way first. nVidia EVGA GTX 580 I7-2600k 16GB Corsair RAM Asus P8P67 Deluxe (I think? Can find the box if it's a big deal) Windows 7 Pro, SP1 For displays, I have a Sony Bravia 40' TV running HDMI off of the GPU, and a 32' Zenbo running VGA off of the GPU's DVI. Onwards to the issue. Both TV's run fine for what they are, but when I decide to do anything that's a full screen application, two things happen every time. First and foremost, I lost dramatic picture quality. Specifically, my color looks all washed out and grainy, as if I'm going from a 32bit to a 16 - and this will persist until . Secondly, my resolutions get warped, resulting in the process I'm running actually being a little bit larger than my display, thus I lose about an inch on all sides. Also, for some games, such as the new Tomb Raider, I get a message saying that Windows Aero has been temporarily disabled to improve performance. This doesn't always pop up, but does so enough during other more graphically intense games (Crysis) to be a point of concern. Here's the tricky part. I just tried to screencap this problem, and seemingly it does not exist. That is it say, when I took a screencap of the edges being off, the screencap show they're there. Same with my video quality; the problem doesn't show up on the screencap, despite the fact that I know it's there. I took a before/after picture of my desktop, showing how things are cut off and look terrible... And it's the same image. So this means that my GPU is processing the image properly, but my displays or something to do with how it's getting to the displays is not functioning correctly? But I don't understand this, because this happens across all of my monitors (I've got another E-Machines 720p monitor that I just recently stopped using, and it still does it as well). I'm sort of getting frustrated with this. I'm not technologically illiterate, but for the life of me I have no idea what could be causing this. I've tampered with the settings in Windows, and in my nVidia control panel , to no avail. I also know through Driver Genius that all my drivers are up to date. Thoughts?
