  1. I bought an EVGA GeForce GT 240 about a week ago, and had a problem with getting a full screen view upon a Samsung UN32C6500 32" TV. I had about 1" gap at the sides, and about 1/2" at the bottom. When I was able to get it into full screen mode, I wasn't able to perform any functions at all, but was able to do so, when I was in safe mode. I made a few changes to a few files, and hosed up that installation. I loaded it again last night, and I used the NVidia G200 series Drivers for the EVGA Cards, as well as the other G200 option, along with the NVidia Enablers. When it rebooted, I was in full screen mode, and I am now able to function in normal mode. I quickly created a back up of the configuration. After the back up, I rebooted the machine, and it is working quite well now. I'm running in true high def....HDMI to HDMI, "1920x1080x32". I checked the system settings, and the Quartz Extreme is active. One thing that I did notice in checking the settings is that, it doesn't recognize the board model, but hey it's working, who cares?! I learned some things in the process after playing around a bit with it.....I was never able to play chess on the machine...I could open up the game, but not play it, cause the pieces wouldn't move. I didn't know how important the Quartz Extreme function was until last night. Another thing that wasn't working was my screen saver...whenever I tried to set it on other installations (different hardware set up), it would tell me that the screen saver kexts could not be loaded. Another facet of having Quartz Extreme active. I just built this machine over the past several weeks. BTW, I'm using Mac OS X iATKOS 10.5.7.....here is the setup...... Motherboard: MSI NF750-G55 Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz Memory: Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C8, 2x2GB 1600, Latency 8-8-8-24 Video: EVGA GeForce GT 240, 1GB DDR3 HDD: WD WD10EARS, 1TB, 64MB Cache, 5400-7200RPM (IntelliPower Drive)
