  1. I just ordered a new video card for my computer, here are the specs:
    Specifications:
    Chipset: ATI Radeon 9000
    Memory: 64MB DDR
    BUS: AGP 4X
    Ports: VGA Out(15 Pin D-Sub) + TV-Out(S-Video Out)
    Support 3D API: DirectX 8, OpenGL 1.3
    Max Resolution@32bit Color: 2048X1536

    The problem is that I installed it but whenever I attempt to change the screen size...it is set at 1280 x 1024 right now the computer reboots and no change is made. My computer also reboots whenever an application is put into full screen mode such as windows media player. Any ideas how to fix this problem?
    Thanks in advance

    there a graphics restore program built in to them u might have to disable .. It is designed in case you overclock to much or set res to high try to find this it comes with your card and installd in the ATI folder..
