    Display problem on Windows 8 64 Bit


    Hi Guys

    I was wondering if you might be able to help me out.

    I used to have a HTPC running windows 7 64 bit and it run perfect.

    I had a Nivida G-Force 630 Video card in it just to help with Video quality on the big screen.

    I just did a fresh format and install on Windows 8 64 Bit today. Everything installed fine and I got all the latest drivers from the web etc.

    When on the Windows 8 Welcome screen it all looks fine and great.

    The second I click on the Desktop button it no longer fits my screen and its like the display is too big as you cant see the icons on the side (Just a tiny bit of them) and you cant see the taskbar, clock etc on the bottom.

    The display is set correct too (1920x1080p) as I have it plugged into my Samsung Series 8 60" LED TV. It used to work fine on Widnows 7.

    Again I did all the driver updates including the Nvida Drivers too.

    I downloaded Windows Classic Shell to see if that would help and still the same, you cant even see the start menu button.

    So any help at all would be so great as I am going crazy over this.

    Many Thanks

    Michael.

    I have a GT630 installed in one of my rigs and that problem occurs at any resolution above 1280x1024 when it's on a DVI connection (digital), but no problem with VGA (analog) one. I had to use GPU-scaling and change refresh rate to 65Hz. Not the best solution at all, but worked.
