Windows 7: Recent resolution issues

Recent resolution issues

Hey guys,
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.

If you flashed the bios from Windows like it sounds here, do it again.

Only this time, close all programs before that aren't needed for Windows to run. All. Like firewall. Antivirus. Use the task manager if you need to.

Hey,
I just solved the BIOS issue today by clean installing XP and then using Fox LiveUpdate to flash the BIOS.
Now I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit working with my 4GB RAM! Hoorah!
But.
My resolution issues still remain... I currently have the 191.07_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_english_whql driver installed for my GPU which I presume is the latest.

No, there is a new one that NVIDIA just released an hour or so ago.

Glad you fixed the bios issue.

When I click the link it goes to a 404. Also, when I search for my 9500GT Windows 7 64bit driver, it gives me a 404.

Works fine here. Try finding a USA based public proxy by Googling and setting your browser to use it temporarily. Certain regions of the world are having problems it seems.

Okay I will download that tonight. It's getting late over in New Zealand and I have an exam tomorrow morning :P
Thanks for your help, and I'll report back tomorrow as to whether the new driver install was a success.

Hey,
I decided that I'm in need of an upgrade, so I'm getting the Gigabyte GTS 250 1GB GDDR3 card to replace my Galaxy 9500GT. Hopefully the new card will not give me any troubles :P
