Resolution stuck

Yesterday I formatted my Hard drive to re install windows 7 and when i got everything back up and running my resolution was stuck at 640x480. i am using a ATI Radeon 5770 and when i tried to install the driver for it i was unable to continue because the next button is cut off of the screen. on my device manager it says im using a Standard VGA Graphics adapter as well not detecting my video card.

Yes Win 7 is using a generic graphics (GFX) driver. You might go to Device Manager and click at the top to Scan for new hardware. Also try Windows update (In the start menu All Programs) to see if WU will grab one for you.
