Computer Resolution Maximum Decreased?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was switching out my video card cords (the ones on the outside of the chassis that connects the monitor to the video card), and using them to test them out on another system. Once I was done doing that, I reconnected them right back into the original PC (not the one I was testing on). When I did that, I had started up my computer as normal, and for some weird reason my resolution was all messed up, the pixels were slightly blurry, so I thought it was just the resolution had gotten changed. So I go to the resolution settings and find out that my new maximum resolution size is now 1280 by 1024 -- which my old used to be as high as 1600 x 1024. I don't know why it's doing this -- I've tried running a system restore, I've tried to reinstalling the latest Nvidia Drivers for my video card, I've tried running a windows memory repair, I've taken out my video card, and reconnected all the wires again, nothing works. Sometimes I even get an error on startup that says "Runtime Error! Program: C:\\Windows\\system32\
vvsvc.exe", and the computer doesnt even startup and stays at a black screen. Anyone got any ideas on what I can do to solve this problem? I apologize I'm just very minimal on computer skills so it'd be great if you'd keep things simple in explaining as if you were to a novice. See attached for system information.

Have you tried resetting the CMOS on your motherboard? I'd do that since you're swapping parts out and your system will obviously not be used to new things entering in.

Try adding it as a custom resolution. Nvidia Control Panel --> Change Resolution --> Customize --> Create Custom Resolution.

To tubnotub1 -- says my computer does not support that display.

To Darco -- How do I do that? I'm novice at the computer, sorry.

If something like this happens to me in Windows, I just reformat. Seems like these errors only grow with age, so my solution is to keep my installation forever young. My HDD's probably resent this, but my computer never runs slowly.

It should do absolutely no harm at all, since you're basically reverting back to the mobo's default, fail-safe settings. I do this all the time whenever I upgrade anything, including the RAM, GPU or even a new hard drive.

Disable EDID (or enable "allow display modes not supported by display") Should be found somewhere in the settings.

Then select the previously used resolution.

To reset CMOS, you must disconnect your computer from any power sources and remove the battery on your motherboard for about 20-30 seconds. Then, put it back and connect your computer to power again. You've just reset all your core hardware settings.
