    Games only have low resolution options despite card being detected.

    System MSI Z77 M Power (just newly installed. Old board crapped out)
    3770k at 4.2
    H100 cooler
    16 GB RAM
    GTX 960 2 GB

    I just installed new motherboard 3 days ago. I canít tell if I just noticed tonight the only resolutions available are low resolutions in games. No idea what is going on here. For example max resolution in GTA V is 800 by 600 . Max in siege is 1280 by 760
    The system recognizes the GTX 960. I reinstalled drivers multiple times. I took card out of slot and reseated it and made sure power cables fine.

    I used DDU to do clean driver install

    Checked in device manager. Only the 960 is showing as a display adapter. Not any integrated graphics.

    I checked the bios. PEG is default setting.

    One crazy thing is Nvidia Control panel is not working so unsure if that is related.

    The crazy thing is when I go into settings on those games it shows the 2 gb video memory on card so even game is detecting it. Itís just not allowing me to change resolution. In addition if I go into GeForce experience in the options to optimize games it shows the 1900 resolution available and I click optimize and it goes through in app but when I go into game it only shows the low resolution options again.

    But when I check Temps on Afterburner while gaming it is showing 140 Fahrenheit under load so itís doing something

    Check to see what Nvidia drivers your system is currently using. They released 384.76 on June 26, 2017. There's something definitely wrong if you are not seeing the Nvidia control panel after the driver installation.

    When you changed your motherboard to the new one, did you reinstall windows or just let windows do its thing?
    If you just let windows do its thing, make sure that you installed the drivers that came with your new motherboard. If you haven't I would suggest you install the motherboard drivers and then use DDU and try doing a clean install of the Nvidia drivers.
