    Hey all

    ive just installed vista on my machine and everything is working fine apart from i cant get my display resoloution to go any higher then 1024x768 with ati drivers installed

    If i take them out and let vista install them i can get up to 1280 but the machine is very slugish.
    I was using xp home b4 vista and didnt have any problems with my display running at 1600x 1200 can anyone help me get my resoloution back up to 1600x1200 in vista

    Thanks

    Chris, I'm not sure what caused your problem, but I know the solution. Most people cannot tell the difference between 600 X 800 and the higher resolutions. I have used the lowest resolution since Windows 95, and it lets my rig run faster.



    Since the highest resolution causes slowdowns, I would just take a lower resolution.

    that's not helping vince. and you do see a difference

    there is really a big difference in surfing the web on 800x600 and 1600x1200



    I hope it is the same as in xp



    *open the screen where you change the resolution

    *click on advanced

    *one of the tabs let you change the frequency of the screen.

    *under that there's a checkbox. uncheck it



    I cannot try it with vista. (vista starter won't let you change anything)
