this happened sometime ago after i :

-reformated my PC
-installed a new graphic card (512 ddr agp)
-ran a complete registry scan a fixes (registry mechanic)
-upgraded to XP sp3

i tried switching between resolutions but it doenst work...

it is not an LCD monitor
i cannot do a system restore cos i dont have a restore point created.

The games below are Age of Mythology + Ragnarok Online. They are some low requirement game. My usual screen resolution is 1024 x 768 and 32 bit... i didnt have any problem playing the games before and did not tamper with the game setups. It just HAPPENED!!

Hi :thumbsup:.


When might "sometime ago" be?

Is your video fine at all other times?

What graphics card?

Have you tried uninstalling the drivers for the graphics card...rebooting and then reinstalling same anew?

Have you checked the status of devices in Device Manager?

Have you checked Event Viewer for possible clues?

Are these games installed on the hard drive or run from CD/DVD?
