Custom Resolution Utility (CRU)

RE: Custom Resolution Utility (CRU)
Hi, I need some assistance.

I've been using CRU to add a custom resolution of 1440x1080 for my native 1920x1080 monitor for use with older games that doesn't support proper widescreen. Today the resolution was gone from my Windows 8.1, and I just thought I must have delete it or something, but now I cannot add it back in working order.

Here's what I do:

I start up CRU and click on 'add' in the 'Detailed Resolution' section. I then change the resolution to 1440x1080 and do nothing else but add it. The 'Include extension block' is option is off. Afterwards, I simple close CRU and restart the display driver or try to restart my PC. After this is done, I can see the added resolution in Windows, but if I try to apply the resolution then I'm met with a black screen and I have to press 'Esc'.

If I do the same procedure, but instead click on the 'Include extension block' then I cannot even see the added resolution in Windows after I have restarted my PC.

I don't understand what is going on. It used to work, as said. I have also tried to run 'reset-all.exe' in safe mode, but no luck with that either. I also tried to add a resolution under the 'Standard resolutions' section, such as 1440x900, but I also get a black screen if I try to apply it. I am able to add the 1440x1080 resolution via the Nvida control panel, but that's not really want I need.

My setup:

Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit
nVidia driver version: 335.23
GTX 560 Ti over HDMI

I hope I've been clear and have provided enough initial info. Thanks.

Edit: I also just tried to uninstall all of my nVdia drivers + I used 'Display Driver Uninstaller' afterwards. No luck there either.

Edit2: Success! I manage to solve it myself. The key was that the scaling options in the Nvida control had reset itself back to performing scaling on the display instead of the GPU. It seems to work fine now again.
