Yesterday I was just surfing the web when my computer crashed. When i restarted it, everything was huge. My resolution was was changed to 800x600. When I went to raise it the highest it would go was 1024x768. I previously had it at 1440x900, and that wasn't as high as it would go. I "restored" to a previous time (a month ago). It still would only go to 1024x768. I restored to a Ghost Image from 3 months ago, and still the same. I downloaded the latest drivers for my 9800 GT and still no joy. This crap with not being able to see the whole screen sucks. Any suggestions? Thanks!

If you restore from a ghost image created when the system has working fine and now after restore it doesn't then its most likely a hardware problem.
If its a desktop you can open the case and make sure all the cards and cables are properly connected/inserted on the slots.
