  1. my monitors recomended resolution was 1280X1024, but it seems to have changed over night to 1680x1050. it still looks the same, however, when i try to play a game it auto switches back to 1280X1024 and only displays half of the game on my monitor (the left half of the screen is on the right of the monitor, and the right half is gone compleatly). could it have been an update? i tried changing my resolution to 1280X1024 but it looks terrible there a way to get it back to how it was before, when 1280x1024 was the defualt?

    if it matters im using a nvidia 8800gt 512
    my monitor is about 21-22 in

    Try reinstalling the video driver from Nvidia's support site
