Proper resolution not showing in games

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine recently reinstalled Windows on his PC and, as expected, he's having some driver issues.
He's on a HD4770, Vista Premium x64, a 32" 1080P monitor and says he's got the latest drivers. He wants his native 1920x1080 resolution, but he doesn't have it as an option - the closest is 1600x1200.

I don't know anything about ATi's drivers and we could use some help

I had this issue with my ATI drivers. To fix this you can add that resolution to the registry as follows:

Just add a line to one of the DALNonStandardModesBCD lines within the following path.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Con tro l\\Video\\{28EB637D-0B05-40E2-9B10-67836FF468A5}\\0000]

(The big number at the end before the 4 zero's is random but you should be able to find yours, if you have installed multiple versions of catalysts you will have loads of different ones so make sure you modify the correct one by looking in your catalyst control panel at the "2d driver file path" entry within "information center").

For example I have just edited the DALNonStandardModesBCD1 entry to look like the following example which added 1280x900 at 60hz.

07,20,04,80,00,00,00,60,
07,20,04,80,00,00,00,75,
07,20,04,80,00,00,00,85,
07,20,05,76,00,00,00,00,
08,48,04,80,00,00,00,60,
08,48,04,80,00,00,00,75,
08,48,04,80,00,00,00,85,
12,80,07,20,00,00,00,60,
12,80,09,00,00,00,00,60
