My screen resolution is stuck in 800 by 600 pixels. :tazz:
I am using the Windows ME edition that was included with my computer.

Have you tried re-installing the drivers for your video card?? Normally when that happens, you have corrupted or missing drivers!!

BTW.. Have you ever been able to change the resolution?? The reason I ask is because that is the max some video cards and monitors will allow!!

Don't re-install a drive.. All you need to do is re-install the "drivers" for your video card!!

:tazz: I re-installed the "driver" and I was able to change my screen resolution...............Now I have another problem. I don't have any sound. I guess my sound card needs to be re-installed too. I really appreciated any advice you can give......

Thank you ;)
