A friend recently helped me restore my computer. This has, however, caused my graphics driver/monitor (specs below) to be unable to display at its intended resolution. The computer used to display at 1440x900, but this is no longer an option on the monitor's display properties, it only goes up to 1024x768 resolution. The only options I see in the display properties > settings menu now are for multiple monitor setups (I only have one screen, the laptop's screen).
I tried to install the ATI Catalyst control panel, but when I try to run it, I get the message "cli.exe - Application error. The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application" In the Device Manager there are six(6) entries for "Default Monitor" under the Monitor tab?!??! I am not sure how this happened. At one restart of my computer, it displayed the proper resolution, but after a restart, it was back to 1024x768 with no option to move back up.
I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 running Windows XP Pro (SP3) 5.1 (Build 2600). It has an ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 card with 256mb running DirectX 9.0c. The processor is T2400@1.83Ghz with 1 GB of RAM. The graphics card driver I have is version 6.14.0010.6618 dated 5/23/06. I tried to update the drivers but they appear up to date (I just got them fresh from the dell support site).
Please let me know if I can provide any more information to help facilitate the resolution of this problem, or let me know if I posted in the wrong section of the forums. It is quite frustrating to have my computer not at optimal levels and I greatly appreciate any help.
