Question about Computers & Internet

I have a computer with mother board P4I45GV. I had to re-install windows. Updated drivers. The screen resolution changes to 640x480 and when booting the system, it re-configures the resolution to 1280x1024 all the time. I changed the resolution to 1280 x 1024 on the desktop but it looses the vlue when shutdown.

Try re-installing the video adapter with updated drivers. And check whether the drivers you are installing are compatible with the version of Windows you are currently using.

Your monitor needs to be a high resolution monitor which supports 1280X1024. If is not then this is why your monitor keeps going back to 640x480. If it is a hi res monitor then you may need to update your drivers. If it is a Windows machines simply click the task bar>>control panel>>enter "Windows Update" in search box then click it and your drivers will be updated

Does the mother board Asrock 845GV (P4I45GV) support pci sata card

If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I changed resolution from 640x480 to 1024x768 and all i get now is a blank screen. cannot get back in to change resolution back to 640x480

reboot the computer in "safe mode with networking" by rebooting the machine and during the manufactures name screen, tap the F8 key and you will see the muli-boot menu come up. Safe mode usually loads a resolution the video card and monitor agree on. You may have corrupt video drivers that give the black screen. While in safe mode, go online to windows update and let it scan your system, choose custom installation and look for the optional updates, these will be the hardware drivers you need to update your system. Check them all if you like and let windows install them automatically. Once done reboot normally and see if that clears the problem.

Why can't my computer change screen resolution

The resolution is dependant on the VGA card
(speed and on board ram) if u are using one.If u are using a video card have u loaded the drivers.
If u are using the mother board video check the specs you may need to allocate more ram to the video via the cmos.
Check the manufactures specs on the motherboard and or video card u may need to upgrade to a newer agp or pci video card.
