    Do you mean it won't stay at those settings???

    did you uninstall the drivers from the previous card?
    that can cause all sorts of problems if you didn't.

    Go to ADD/Remove Programs in the Control Panel, remove all video Drivers, restart, and install the ATI ones for your new card.

    That should do the trick.

    ++You might want to try being a bit clearer in future - I'm just guessing that thats what you are trying to say++

    well i dont know if it wont stay at them or if it even is set to them. and about uninstalling the old drivers... i have a gateway(dont laugh) from a couple years ago and the video card is built into the mother board and i have no idea how to uninstall the old drivers


    THANK YOU VERY MUCH

    OK, so it was Onboard, now you have an AGP Card?

    what you should do is download the latest drivers from ATI, install them, re- start and you should be in business.
