  1. I plugged in a new fan to help keep my hdd's cool, and i plugged it into the board (turned off), and when i turned it back on, everything was good, speed fan detected it and it was running smooth. But, i noticed that my hdd light was continually on, but the hdd's weren't reading, so i shut down, and i unplugged the fan, hoping maybe that caused it. When it restarted, suddenly it was in 640x480. So, i checked the display settings, now it suddenly had every resolution up to like 3400x2048, but not my resolution of 1680x1050.

    Frustrated, i uninstalled the video card, and reinstalled, same thing. Sooo, i uninstalled the drivers and software, restarted, and reinstalled. SAME THING.
    Frustrated, i slammed my fist on the keyboard, and then came here.

    The video card is a integraded ATI raedon xpress 200, the motherboard a ECS elitegroup RS482-M754.

    1680x1050
    Mine doesn't show that one in my driver setup.

    It is a normal one though (wide)
    I wonder if the drivers you loaded does not have this one either
    And the old drivers did

    Go through the video settings and confirm there is no option saying enable wide

    Go to your manufactures web page and download the latest drivers

    Get a technician to repair this Video fault, I'm concerned there will be nothing left to the computer, if you get another issue!
