Screen Resolution Crash

My laptop crashes when I am playing Free Ride and other games. I get the error screen resolution not set to max. However the screen resolution IS set to the max. Question: How do I get rid of the error and play the game?

Hi everyone I have updated my system info my profile!
I have updated the chip set drivers and set my resolution to 1024X600. I still get a crash when I play games and the error asking me to change to 1024X600 continues even though I am set to 1024X600 during the crash!

I would appreciate any and all help!

Thank You!
