Can't turn resolution up, help!
I'm having a problem getting my computer to boot up in a resolution any greater than 640x480x8bit
They're the default settings on my desktop after I've installed a fresh copy of XP. Normal procedure is then to install some nVidia drivers and bump my resolution to 1024x768x32bit. I've done this loads of times in the past and it's always worked fine. This time however, after I'd installing my drivers (The same ones I've used before) and rebooted the computer the monitor gets past the windows loading screen and then goes off and the light goes orange, a sure sign of something wrong.
At first I just thought that the monitor was bust and wouldn't handle the resolution after Id turned it up, but I've been able to run a Linux Live CD and the monitor has no problem with the 1024x768x32bit display settings.
I can only think It's something to do with Windows rather than the monitor.
I can then boot into vga mode from the boot screen, the monitor sets to its default 640x480x8bit but when i try to turn it up again the same thing happens. monitor goes off and the litle orange light comes on...
Like I say, I've done this in the past with no probs, but now its being funny with me.
