  1. hi guys, im new here. i've unable to find the solution to my resolution problem that i am facing.

    im using ATi radeon powercolor x700 graphic card.
    but heres the problem, everytime i switched on my comp, the default resolution setting is 800 x 600 which i do not prefer. i try setting it to 1024 x 768, but it do not works when i adjust it from control panel > appearance and theme > change resolution.

    i've installed the ATi catalyst control center, and onli from there i can change my resolution to 1024 x 768 manually. and i haf to do this everytime whenever i power up my pc.

    any solution to permanently set my resolution to 1024 x 768 whenever i power up my comp ?


    thanks alot.

    You need to go into the BIOS and make sure AGP/PCI is the primary video adapter.

    It`s usally under "Integrated Peripherals", or "Advanced Chipset Features"

    It`s there somewhere :) Just keep looking for "Primary video adapter"
    or "Default video" in one of the Advanced or Peripheral menus.

    The options it gives you are usually Onboard/AGP,PCI

    Yes that`s it.There are many variations on where it is in different BIOSs

    You want the AGP/PCI option ie NOT onboard/internal.

    See here HERE if you want more details. Look for "Set the primary video display in the BIOS"
