  1. I will try my best to explain how this happened, but I have never even seen / heard of this happening to anyone before.

    My normal resolution is 1680 x 1050 widescreen.

    I was alt tabbing into wow, and my monitor resolution spazzed out, everything veered off to the left and down a bit.

    I noticed that with my monitor options off the monitor buttons themselves it says that even though I had my computer resolution settings set to 1680 x 1050 it was being displayed in Analog 1280 x 1024.

    When I switched it to 1440 x 900, everything was fine and the monitor options said Analog 1440 x 900.

    WHENEVER I try to set it to 1680 x 1050 everything gets displayed as 1280 x 1024.

    I have absolutely no idea what to do.

    Appreciate any insight / help.

    Are you sure the video card isn't spazin? at those resolutions, the monitor should be made for that setting.

    Alright so some how it just magically fixed itself.. mind you it happened when I was alt tabbing between Wc3 and Wow.

    My computer hates wc3.

    I shouldn't say magically I guess since I just started alt tabbing to make it auto adjust itself again in a weird way.
