My eMachine restore disks succeeded only in disabling my OS so I bought a copy of XP S/P2 and had no problem refromatting. The system is running fast and smooth again with one exception. My monitor is stuck on minimum resolution and will not adjust upward either automatically as offered by Windows on each boot-up or with System Properties.

The monitor is a Proview 786NS if thats helpful. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

Thanks for any help.

Download and install Everest Home here

Run it, click + next to compter then summary, look on right for display / video adapter, post the make and model or visit the manufacturers site for drivers, you may need to do the same for the audio

Everest will show this in summary, multimedia / audio adapter
