I've had this happen before on an older version of the nVidia drivers. When I tried to go past 720P the screen would look like the sync signals are off.
Which version of the nVidia Forceware drivers are you using?
Which card do you have exactly?
Do you see the PC bootup screen clearly? (Ignoring the overscan problem at this stage)
Here is my current config:
Gainward Geforce4 Ti4600 with dual DVI outputs
DVI->HDMI cable from either port seems to work fine for me
Forceware drivers v71.89
When I open up the Geforce display panel, here are the settings in the relevant areas:
nView Display Settings:
- nView Display Mode: Single display
- Current display: HD-52Z575A
* Hitting Device Settings:
* Treat Digital Display as HDTV is checked
* TV Format is 720p HDTV
Digital Flat Panel Settings:
- Centered output
* Note that preview states my max resolution is 1920x1080
- 1176x664 pixels
- Screen refresh rate: 60 hertz

you have any luck figuring it out?
my x-box with mvp 2005 looks great...... which makes me wonder what is the computer doing that it can't send a true 720p signal out either component or DVI, when the video card clearly has an option for "monitor is and HD Display"
any insight to this would be great
