maybe your display drivers are having issues, or your OC isnt quite stable and is causing a glitch in your system?

Cryraxz, out of curiosity what game is this that your trying to change the resolution in? Have you tried a lower resolution in Windows to see if the problem reproduces itself when starting up a game?

Good luck
