Screen Res. Option Disappeared.


Hiya, I don't know if any of you can help me with this.. But I usually use the 1280×1024 Screen Resolution, and was using it earlier today.. well Last night anyway lol. I had a windows update on my computer, I wasn't paying attention to what it was, but when it had me restart, the Screen was at 1024x768. I went to re-change it back to my usual, and This is what I saw:

The only two options are 800x600, and 1024x768. I googled this problem, and came up with 2 different suggestions.. One was to try to update the adapter and monitor drivers.. Neither of those worked, I kept getting an error message (A missing dll but I would have to try again to find which.)

The second was to do a system recovery.. So I did.. I was prepared to lose all my stuff I err.. Have on my computer just to get my preffered resolution back.. But when I got everything back it was the same way...

Anyone have any idea what's wrong? I could offer more detail.. just tell me what I should say lol.

It is you graphic card / driver which causes this.

You have an installation CD to go with the screen ??
If not, do a google search for the correct driver, download and install

A recovery may give you different settings if you change some software/hardware after any backup you may have.
A recovery can also be set to the very beginning, the default factory settings emoticon

It all depends on what you choose, and if you dont have any specific recovery time/date to choose from, it is always factory defaults that are given back to you emoticon

Get new vid drivers.... but before you install them remove all vid card drivers currently on your system. Use a scrubber for your flavor of vid card. Only then should you install the new drivers.
