Some game advice for those with...

Dell Computer Forum - forum.desktopreview.com
If you find some games crashing on load, on in-game system settings, or refusing to run full screen, please check if your monitor has a 60hz refresh rate option. If it does not, this may be the cause of the problem, as some games EXPECT 60hz to exist. Two of the most infamous games are Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2. If 60hz is missing from the EDID, Dark souls may crash on PC settings or new/load game, and Dark souls 2 may white screen (the white screen issue was fixed some time ago, instead the game simply will run windowed and remain windowed).

To fix this issue, you MUST use ToastyX Custom Resolution Utility and just add an Automatic Timings 60hz native resolution, then run the driver restarter.

This fixes everything. It's unknown if Gsync will work with this though; if you need Gsync, and you run into issues, just delete the refresh rate and restart the driver.

90% of you would probably use the Nvidia Control Panel and create a 60hz resolution with the NVCP. While the resolution "works", this will HARD LOCK Dark souls, and it will still crash on PC settings. Why? Because the Nvidia custom resolution utility does NOT create true EDID overrides. Rather it creates "GPU scaled" resolutions and then reports them to the driver. This doesn't play nice with Dark souls. This may help with other games that are locked to 60hz as well.
