I don't know how to on ATI cards, but for nVidia there's an application called nvflash-- grab the card bios using GPU-z, modify it with nibitor, then reboot in DOS and use nvflash to write it to your card and reboot again.

I'm sure there's a similar utility for ATI cards, I just don't know what it's called.

Take USB Flash Key and format it using HP Format tool and DOS files.
Download ATIFlash and put it together with your BIOS rom on the USB key.
Boot from Key and >forgot atiflash command here<.

All this explained here

:/

weird thing though is this is right after i installed the windows update for SP1 and at the login screen before it applied it it seemed to be at its native resolution, could the update be causing some kind of conflict?

the bios you flashed to could have been corrupted or damaged somehow in the process
