Screen resolution issue

i Have a 17" CRT SAMSUNG MONITOR.
&
an Onboard ATI 4250 HD GRAPHICS {motherBoard inbuilt}.

i Just installed the graphics card driver & the issue of screen resolution came.

Before installing the driver, Windows 7 generic display driver was used & it supported various resolutions, at that time i was using 1152x864

i Liked that resolution.

But after installing the driver i cant see that resolution in the properties & i have to use 1024x768 which is no good compared to the previously i was using.

Can anyOne pls. help me out how can i enable & use that resolution once again ???

What's the exact model number of your monitor?

I'm fairly certain however that you're being limited to 1024 x 768 (a common resolution for 17-inchers) because it's being read directly from the display; it's maximum reported resolution. The actual terminology begets me at the moment, but that's basically it.

Oh I see what your problem is now.

If you want the resolution you had before, go into CCC and find the 'Desktop Management' tab, click on properties (Desktop Properties) and you should see two columns: "Basic" and "HDTV". Hit up the former and the resolution should be there.

If not, you can click on the 'My Digital Flat Panels' tab, and create the resolution.

EDIT: No, scratch all of that. I just messed around with the slider you're showing and it should be directly below 1280 x 720. Try that.

i Dont have CCC & all the other panes u mentioned after that arent also present.
i have AMD VISION ENGINE CONTROL CENTER & in this there arent any of the panes to create custom resolution.

i tried to slide the slider but there are only 2 & nothing in between them.
