Windows 7: Resolution screwed up when I adjusted text sizes

Yes I am using an ATI card. Radeon 4570. As I said before, I used the find option inside regedit, but it came up blank. Reinstalling OS is not an option atm. I might try reinstalling video driver, and a few other things and see how it goes.

I think I have figured out why your unable to alter the resolution on your video card, your video card is for notebooks, so that means that you have a note book and that is why you don't have that ability.

The reason why you would want to create a custom resolution is for when you buy a monitor and the recommended resolution for optimum viewing on you monitor is not a native resolution, so you go into the registry to create a custom resolution.

If your using a notebook then you wont gain any benefit from creating a custom resolution as the video card will have the optimum resolution as a native resolution for the display.

Yes I do have a notebook. I wanted to create a custom resolution for an external monitor which I will be getting shortly. Last time I tried 1, the resolution wouldn't go higher than the native notebook resolution. Will the DALNonStandardModes key appear when I use an external monitor, or is there another way to increase the resolution?

I am not sure you can only try, like I said you can either try and re-install the OS or just the graphics card driver and see if that helps.

It may also be worth trying ATI technical support, or I think they have forums on their site where you may also find help.
