Windows 7: Resolution won't show Windows Startup

Resolution won't show Windows Startup

Hi, ever since I got a new Graphics Card I've been experiencing newer and newer problems. Whenever I boot up, it shows a blue HP sign (normal) but then when it gets to the "Starting Windows" screen, I can't see it. My monitor says "Change Resolution to 1280x1024" on a tiny white board. Same with Windows Error Recovery, I had to restart my PC a few times when I got a blackout during Sandy due to me accidently choosing Safe Mode. It hasn't been such a nuisance until now and I will get a new monitor soon, I just want to know if I can cure this before I get it. The monitor is HPvs17c (17 inch LCD), running Windows 7 Home Premium, 800 x 600 resolution.
