You need to install all the drivers for your motherboard, graphics, modem etc after ou have done a reinstall.

the graphics drivers will sort out your screen resolution problem.

you need to reinstall your graphics card driver. if its on the motherboard insert the Supplied motherboard support disk if its a card insert the Supplied graphics card disk and reinstall the driver. also it would be a good idea to check device manager for any more drivers that have not installed as standard such as chipsets and audio drivers. if you are not sure what driver you need download EVEREST Ultimate Edition at click here once everest is open go to devices/windows devices and it will tell you best it can what is on your system. (note that this is a 30 day trial program). if you dont have the disks download the drivers of the manufacturer's web site
