Changing resolutions

Question

Hi,

For some reason my computer wouldn't give me a different resolution other than 600 x 800. I changed something in the advanced part of my settings. Now when I boot my computer everything boots normal, the windows start up fine but when its time for the picture to come on like when the sound starts I get no picture. I even tried to open in safe mode ,but it tells me something like I need drivers are something then it freezes. Please help me.

It seems that your problem is with your video drivers, your system seems to be currently using windows generic video drivers which is why it wont let you change the resolution to anything higher You should have drivers that came with your video card or you can check online If your video is built-in to the motherboard, then you should have a mother board install CD, if not try checking online for the drivers and related software.
