    1080p no longer an option

    Thanks for the help.

    I tried uninstalling the NVidia drivers and reinstalling it, nothing changed.

    I decided to use an HDMI Cable and everything is ok at 1080p, it's only on vga that the resolution is on the native resolution of the tv/monitor.

    Resolution problem with Win 10 and ViewSonic Monitor

    Recommended Resolution does not render correctly. ViewSonic 1080P Full HD monitor.

    Model: VS12324

    Updating driver did NOT resolve the problem.

    Sounds like the same issue I had. If you Google "display driver uninstaller"... get the one from Guru3d (15.3.1.0) and run that and then try updating driver. Worked for me.

    1st, shutdown your computer and turn it back on. Then, restart your computer. Then, try to run the install again. Happened to me and this fixed it. Then the driver now works fine.
