    Whenever I click apply on any change in the scaling section, the control panel freezes.
    Very very annoying.
    Solution?

    I reinstalled the driver package, no change.
    As soon as I click on Apply, the control panel freezes. Now I am stuck with stupid display scaling which stretches any non 16:9 resolution.
    Annoyed.

    actually had a call recently about that...


    the only solution was to revert back to an earlier version..


    NVidia had an update for drivers on some older cards too about a year or so ago..... did the same damn thing.. only worse, whenever a 3D app display program opened.. it'd lock the systems up solid .. didn't matter the hardware combination..... most of them were intergrated 6100-6150 gpus though...

    I already regret going back to Nvidia, even for a (possible) while.

    All the shit ATI gets, I never had a problem with their drivers over the last decade.

    Did you try checking that "clean install" option while installing?
    Did you reboot after the install finishes? (even if you are not prompted to)


    edit: my NVidia experience has been great after many years of ATI (great too)

    this is precisely why I find it funny how fanboys on either side raise shit....
