  1. I have a problem with my VGA. It only works in 640x480 resolution (I have to boot in Enable VGA Mode). Can anyone help?

    Thx in advance.

    What are your computers specs?

    There is better way to tell us what you have. If I read your zip file correctly, it just has the motherbooard manual. Is this an old AMD Socket A system? Does your video card have a name on it? Are you located in the USA?

    My VGA is a nVidia GeForce 4 MX 440. And I'm not located in the USA.

    Have you installed the latest MX440 drivers from the Nvidia support website? Make sure you have disabled the on-board video if you have it. Was I right about the details of your system?

    No, its not an AMD Socket A. And i don't think it's a driver issue because i have a dual-boot system and the problem is there on both OSes.

    Since you know what your computer isn't... can you tell me in English... what it is?

    It's an Intel Pentium 4.

    After 9 posts:
    we know that your system is a P4 dual boot, MX440 video only running 1 resolution in both Operating Systems

    What we still don't know Is the dual boot XP and Vista? Did you just start getting this video problem? Is the MX440 new? No video untill you boot into the Safe Mode? I know questions, questions :)
