Lately Microsoft added in a new screen resolution option (1600X1200).

When my computer reset the screen resolution back to it's lowest (It does that occasionally); I put it back up to the very end where the slider was (I was used to the last one being 1280X1024).

When I chose that option, the screen blacked out; I panicked and did a cold shutdown. Now I can't boot into normal mode because the "Input not Supported" screen is all I can see. I'm currently posting in Safe mode with networking.

Changing the resolution in safe mode did nothing.
Using the boot options and choosing to start it on 640X400 (or something) worked for a split second before reverting to the "InS" screen.

I'm using Vista 32bit.
The monitor is of Acer model, though the actual model type is unknown to me.

If anyone can help me, I'd be most appreciative.

Tried, but no dice.

Edit: I managed to get it fixed by rolling back the drivers. Thanks though.

Cool beans :)
I suspect, this is another case of MS messing up with updating non-MS stuff.
It's always a good idea to change Windows updates setting from "automatic" to "Notify..." and opt out from any updates for non-MS devices.
