1) Download latest NVidia drivers or use your prefered version.

2) Rename setup file to include a zip extension.

3) Extract archive with WinZIP or similar program to a temporary directory.

4) Edit "nv4_disp.inf" with your favourite ascii text editor.

5) Scroll to the very bottom, locate the string constant matching your display card (if you are unsure check with the device manager).

6) Note the card's unique identifier to the left of the string, now find the section listing the display modes corresponding to this identifier.

7) When adding new modes be sure to copy the line nearest to your desired custom resolution, for example say you wanted to add a screen mode of 768 x 576, you would copy the 800x600 line and paste it just above it, so it would look like this.

HKR,, NV4_Modes, %REG_SZ_APPEND%, "8 768 576 60 70 72 75 85 100 120 0"
HKR,, NV4_Modes, %REG_SZ_APPEND%, "8 800 600 60 70 72 75 85 100 120 0"

DO NOT copy from or move the first 640x480 line.

8) In the same fashion, the above must be done for each color depth, usually 8, 16 and 32 bit.

9) Ready to install, save the file then go into the device manager, right click your display adapter, and update the drivers, point it to your modified "nv4_disp.inf".

10) Reboot. If all goes as planned, these new resolutions should be available for use within any application.
