Windows 7: Reformatted my computer and my screen resolution is messed up.

Reformatted my computer and my screen resolution is messed up.

Hey, I reformatted/reinstalled win7 so everything is fresh, but my screen resolution is completely jacked up.
I've right clicked on the desktop and tried changing my screen resolution, but I only have a 4 options and none of them are right.
It says my Display is SyncMaster2233SW, SyncMasterMagic CX223SW(Digital)

I'm not the best with computers, but I've been googling and trying what I've been reading but nothing is helping. I even downloaded teamviewer and had a buddy try to help, but he couldn't find anything.

I'll post any and all screenshots requested. I'm just trying to get my screen resolution back to what it was yesterday before I reformatted.

Have you installed the drivers for your graphics card AND your monitor?

If not, that may be causing your issue.
