Default Re: Problem with Widescreen Monitor and 4:3 resolutions


I have some problems concerning this topic, too.


System: Arch Linux 2.6.28, 32 Bit
Display: Samsung SyncMaster 2253BW (DVI)
Videocard: Geforce 6800 Ultra PCIe
Driver: 180.29 and 185.13 (beta release)

If I want to play a game in 800x600 fullscreen mode, part of the image is cut off. no matter which options I choose (stretched, centered or aspect ratio scaled) in the nvidia-settings. I've figured out that it works without any problems with 640x480 and 1024x768. In these modes I get the black bars on the left and on the right side and the whole Image is displayed. But in 800x600, it doesn't work.

Can anyone help out?

best regards
