Slannder, "Welcome to the Seven Forums."
Need our system specs. Also it appears that you are using an Nvidia graphics card, hence, have you downloaded the latest drivers, 191.07 from the Nividia site. Try that and if it doesn't work post back here to get further help or ideas.

Please when you get a chance fill in your System Specs so if you need help in the future those who will try to help will be able to see your specs and have a better chance in addressing any problems you may have. Thank You, Lee

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

No need for system specs. To get this resolution simly go open your steam, Open up your games collection, right click on Counter strike source, then click properties, then launch options.

Then you type -w 1280 -h 1024
Then click apply and open the game and it shud be that resolution.

Remember to do this when your not in game. the lauch options is a command line for what the game shall start whit of settings. so when you type in the above you will tell the game to start whit that ressolution.

If that dosent work i recomend trying another driver.

Concker, The request for Specs is so if a person needs help in the future. Having their specs posted helps those attempting to help someone. I notice you have your specs posted. Also, whenever giving a Welcome to the forums I request that a newbie please post their specs if they haven't done so at that time. :)
