Windows 7: PC starts up at 640 by 480

PC starts up at 640 by 480

Hi guys, I have a Compaq Presario CQ5500Y with an integrated NVIDIA video card solution. Ever since I used Windows Anytime Upgrade to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate, my Dell E772c monitors video resolution drops to 640 by 480 when ever I boot my PC. If you know anything about this please let me know. It is really annoying! (PS: I have the latest drivers for my video card)

check your BIOS settings, also check your graphics properties, in control panel or right click on desktop. also you can try to factory restore your monitors settings

Verify which driver it's using, via device manager or System Info (under Components | Display).

I'd consider doing a complete wipe and reinstall of the driver probably for starters.

Thanks everyone! All your solutions worked without doing a factory reset! You all get a cookie.
