Gigabyte 8INXP / AIW 9700 Pro Problems

  1. Hi,
    Just tried to put together a kool system. But I'm having constant problems where the resolution will default to the lowest setting and not allow me to reset it until I reboot. Windows says it's coming from my video driver. Any advice would be great. I've read for about 5 hours now. I see alot of threads at different places point at the E7205 chipset as well as just slam ATI. I'm not sure whether to dump the mobo or card. Any advice would greatly be appreciated.

    Koolance - liquid cooled case
    Gigabyte - 8INXP (E7205)
    AIW 9700 Pro
    2 x 512 Mushkin PC2100 Level 2
    Antec True Blue 480W
    WD400JB - 40gig 7200 RPM 8meg cache
    WD120JB - 120gig " " " "
    Sony DRU-500A DVD -RW/+RW
    Sony DDU-1621
    Altec Lansing-5100

    PS - Did all bios & ATI updates. Refuse to switch to 4X. Paid way too much for that. I have noticed that messing with the advanced display properties has lead to more stability. I also disabled the quick resolution feature in the options tab.
