One of our development network is serving 40 users, every user is using a desktop with the following spec:
•      Desktop : HP Elite PC 8100, i7 CPU, 4GB RAM, Windows 7 64-bit.
•      Screen: HP LA2205wg (22") – Driver has been downloaded from HP.com version is 2.0.0.0
•      Display card: NVidia Quadro NVS 295 – Driver has been downloaded from Nvidia.com version is 8.17.12.5981

The problem is this:

The native resolution of the screen is 1680*1050.
In some cases –I can't change the resolution of the card to use the native resolution of the screen, the display which has been detected is "display device…" as you can see at the attached picture
 
In other cases – everything is ok.
I would like to mention that all of the users PCs has been installed using the same image, some of them have got the problem mentioned above and some don't.
In some cases, after enabling "Nview" problem has gone, but, not in all computer.

I will appreciate your help.

You might consider trying version 8.16 from HP.  OEM drivers are based on the manufacturer's drivers but occasionally need to be tweaked for HP-specific PC configurations/BIOS to work properly.  The fact that HP's latest version is 8.16 and nVidia's is 8.17 either means that HP has not finished testing 8.17 or found that 8.17 doesn't work correctly on the Elite 8100.

Hi PowerEdgeTech

First, I was consulting with HP customer support, they advice me to use the version from Nvidia site... :-)

The good news is that I have manage to solve the problem:
1. Remove the Nvidia driver (8.17).
2. restart the machine.
3.Install the HP driver (8.16)
4. restart the machine.
5. remove the display driver.
6. using Monitor Asset Manager (http://www.entechtaiwan.com/util/moninfo.shtm) I have captured a working INF file from near by computer
6. install the attached inf driver which been captured from the working machine.
7. lifes good...
