Windows 7: Screen Resolution is not working properly

Screen Resolution is not working properly

I reinstalled Windows a couple of days ago. Everything was fine, I downloaded all the drivers I needed. the Aero theme worked, and my resolution worked and looked just like before.

A day or two later the screen resolution changed itself to something weird. The icons and everything was much bigger and it wasn't as detailed, a little smudged.

I always used my computer at 1280x1024 resolution and it was the perfect one. It worked also after I reinstalled. Now when I am on it, it looks stretched an smudged and the text isn't as clear. Im now using 1600x900 and its better, but still not perfect. I really need help
Edit: windows says my driver is up to date. AMD Radeon
