I have had Windows 7 running flawlessly recently (save the unsolved issue with my BIOS and 4GB RAM) up until now. I was attempting to flash my BIOS using Fox LiveUpdate just today, and when that made my system unresponsive, I restarted my computer using the restart button on my case. However, when Windows loaded again, the resolution was default 1024x768. I have spent hours on Google searching for any way to solve the solution properly. I have downloaded the latest nVidia drivers, and did manage to force Windows to accept my resolution as 1680x1050 by unchecking "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display". I used to have it running fine and I'm not sure what happened. Also, straight after this began to occur, I tried a system restore but that didn't work.
Any help is greatly appreciated guys, cause this is driving me crazy when my games don't recognise my native resolution of 1680x1050.
Thanks in advance.
