Desperate Screen Resolution help needed

  Jazzyboo 17:11 19 Jul 2008

A few days ago all was fine and then my monitor went blank and I could not get it started. This a new one and the Tech guys at PC world guided me through what to do to get it started. However, since then all my desktyop, picturrsd, and pictures a folder are all squat. My resolution reads 1280x1024 and CANNOT go higher. My sister's resolution is 1440x900 and is fine. Also my screen saver which is set for 3 minutes now comes up with a message to the effect of Hardware accelation is either disabled or not supported by your video card driver etc. All was fine until today.

You need to post the make and model of your monitor, and the make and monitor of your graphics card. (you ned to re-install the drivers)

Press F8 at start up and choose the option 'enable VGA mode. You should log into windows and be able to change to the highest resolution (assuming your monitor is capable and compatible with your graphics card)
