Make sure you installed new video drivers on your new drive. Then, go into the Display Properties and change the resolution again.

I'm guessing that you didn't install it yourself,

RIght click on the desktop, and select properties. Then select the settings tab and tell me whatever it says below the computer screen animation.

My guess is that you installed the new drivers whiel there were different drivers than were undetected, and a computer confusion began.
