Video Drivers Seems To Change After Booting
I have an older video card that doesn't have drivers for Windows 7 so Windows installed a driver that works. The problem I have is the resolution only goes up to 1024x768 and I like a much higher res. While trying to find a driver that would work better for me I noticed that if I uninstall the video driver, reboot, then go to change the resolution that I have the option to set it up to 1280x1024 which works great. I can go for days with no issues but as soon as I reboot it reverts back to only letting me set the resolution to 1024x768 again. I have to go thought the whole process again on uninstalling the driver, reboot etc.
I could understand if I could never get higher than 1024x768 with this card this inconsistency is driving me nuts. Any help would be appreciated.

A quick search using that model name comes up with it being one of two cards,
Radeon 9550 (RV350) - ATi Radeon 9550 Video Card - Reviews, Specifications, and Pictures - GPUReview.com
Radeon 9250 (RV280) - ATi Radeon 9250 AGP Video Card - Reviews, Specifications, and Pictures - GPUReview.com
If it is the first, the legacy Vista driver directly from ATI should work. If it is the second do a search of the forum looking for 9250 or 9200 to see what others with this card have managed to do to get it to work with Windows 7.
As to determining exactly which it is grab this,
GPU-Z Video card GPU Information Utility
and where it shows GPU, it should show which of the above it is.
