You are right. They are DVI. I'm going to order one off ebay and see what happens.

Question: how does that explain disabling the GTS250 driver and still seeing the monitor?

It's possible, since you are converting DVI output to VGA for your monitor, that the card is detecting VGA, and thus automatically limiting your resolution on boot? Does your monitor accept DVI, or are VGA and HDMI the only choices? If it has DVI, just use the DVI to DVI. If it does't, but has HDMI, then a DVI to HDMI adaptor, and a HDMI cable might just correct this problem. A Guy

A semi-random suggestion:

If your monitor has a DVI input, and you can lay your hands on a DVI cable, give it a try.

I just ordered one from ebay so we'll see what happens when it gets here. The issue that really stumps me is that before I got the new graphics card I was adjusting the amount of visual memory available on the onboard card. That's when the settings went off. I put the settings back, restored it, etc and it wouldn't go back to the right resolution. So then I thought the card went out and bought this new card. But it hasn't changed or fixed the problem.

Disable the on board graphics in Device Manager. Just because Bios says it is doesn't mean Windows sees it that way.

It may be disabled I suggested you make sure in Device Manager.

Not the PCI Graphics card.

Hi,

I don't understand - you said you selected 1680x1200 and it looked OK and tested OK, but.......something flashed????? Can you be more specific? Perhaps post a screen capture here to show us what you mean?

Regards,
Golden
