I would really like to seek help on the below issue (which is not a problem per se but has been bugging me). 1. I recently replaced NVIDIA 9800GT with a GTX560. 2. System hardware is in my signature alongwith a Samsung Syncmaster P2350 1920*1080. 3. Previously with 9800GT during windows 7 install, the OS used to just install and show the first desktop with the native monitor resolution 1920*1080. I used to install Nvidia drivers anyway but not installing them did not lead to the below problem: 4. with gtx560, windows 7 installs properly but now at showing desktop for the first time, it shows standard vga adapter and with resolution like 1024*768 (which is basically bigger characters). I can get the native resolution on my monitor only after installing nvidia drivers. 5. Is something the issue with the gpu fitting or is it now the case with newer nvidia gpus. Please note that I have a core i7-920,X58 with no onboard display. 6. I have no problems at all with nvidia drivers (install them anyway) but do not know whether they are a prerequisite for getting native monitor resolution for newer nvidia gpu. Have searched the net but could not find any resolution to this issue.
