i have a Dell Optiplex GX1 desktop, running windows XP sp2.. my screen resolution is really big and and my programs go off screen.
Now when i go into display settings and try to change resolution to 800 by 600, or any other sizes my screen crashes. I've tried with a different monitor with the same results, i have the correct drivers and it seems to be updated. anyone know how i can fix this?

What is the screen resolution set at now? Are you still using the integrated ATI Rage 2 graphics or have you installed a PCI expansion card? Same Dell monitor?

If the monitor is allot older than the PC there could be a resolution problem. What happened when you started having this problem? Did you install any new software, change monitors, remove any software? You can download the latest drivers from ATI select your operating system and select legacy devices and Rage Pro.
