I have a suggestion, Kenneth. I know you're being assisted by an expert, but if you will, I might have a method since your card is an NVIDIA.

 

Right click your desktop > go to Nvidia control panel > from here find on the left panel the menu option "Change resolution" > and note what resolution is highlighted in the panel under the "resolution" heading.

If the resolution is lower than 1920x1080, try changing it to your desired resolution and see what happens.

 

[Side Note] You may also want to check the documentation of your display to verify that it is capable of native 1080p and not an "upscaled" 1080i. Many monitors were labeled this way a few years back with a native resolution of 720p.

 

If this is not the case for you, we are likely experiencing a driver and/or hardware issue.

 

Try using another wire for your display. Many new games and home video are HDCP certified and require an HDMI cable for proper HD playback. This isn't always true, but it won't hurt to try.

 

If your drivers are updated, your monitor has no issues and your 660 is in good standing, we can try setting a custom resolution within the Nvidia Control Panel.

 

To do this just navigate to the Nvidia control panel I described earlier, but now hit the menu option labeled "adjust desktop size and position"

Use the values you see in the image above for each field. Also note at the bottom what resolution is displayed here as your current orientation. 

 

From here go to "change resolution" under the display heading on the left. If 1920x1080 is not displayed as a resolution option in the window under "resolution", click "customize" below it.

After clicking this button another window will pop-up with a button at the bottom of this window labeled "create custom resolution." 

 

After clicking this you should see the following.

Use the values you see here for each field available. Leave the timing also at automatic and hit "test" at the bottom. The screen should go blank and restart with the resolution you set. If it is successful you should see no artifacts or blinking from the monitor. Say yes to the prompt and back out.

 

At this point you can set your monitor to the resolution of 1080p from any control panel (windows screen resolution or from the nvidia control panel) without a problem.

 

Hope this helps.

KennethParker,

 

Go into device manager and uninstall the devices that are under display adapters.

Restart the computer.

This should uninstall and reinstall the drivers.

 

Here is a link to device manager.

 

Also go to NVidia control panel and make sure that the resolution is set correct.

 

Let me know how everything goes.

 

Have a good day.

Thanks.

 

Problem fixed.

 

Risen 2 needs an HDMI cable installed  as well as the DVI cable.
