Are you using the onboard graphics or have you installed a different graphics card in one of the PCI slots?
Either way, most problems (in my limited experience) like yours are solved by updating the grapics adapter driver. Go to the ASUS site (or the site of your graphics card, if you installed one) and look for downloads in the support section. Most sites have a search engine where you can plunk in your system information which makes the task of finding the correct, latest driver a lot easier.
Save the file to your desktop and run it from there. It should update after you reboot your system.

i have asus P5SD2-VM sis672/sis968 mother board. but my graphic card driver is not working properly , when i download any game which is of having graphic card(128mb) min requirement it does not work properly. what should i do for this .
A couple of suggestions, in case you over looked them.
1) Get into BIOS and make sure the on board is disabled there. I've have trouble before when I missed it. 2) If the old one is showing on your Device Manager, Disable it but dont uninstall it. Then remove any drivers for it.
Yes, through bios you can only select VGA but it wont have any effect on what you see on windows, so let bios aside. Is through Windows Display properties that you select all the different resolutions... (RIGHT CLIC YOUR MOUSE OVER THE DESKTOP, SELECT PROPERTIES AND LOOK FOR THE SETTINGS TAB ON TOP, MOVE THE SLIDER AT THE MIDDLE TO SELECT RESOLUTIONS) in windows is where you should have the latest drivers from ECS (now PCCHIPS) for your motherboard's onboard graphics. 1440x900 is widescreen type resolution, only available rather recently by new monitors that support it and so I guess it wasn't included in your original motherboard driver CD. Then it's a must to have the new drivers installed and the monitor's plug and play recognized by windows in order to attain the desired resolution from the card.
Any new AGP video card will be far better than the onboard type. DVI is just a digital type of conector and doesn't have to do with the resolution selection, but it will make the images in the monitor show a little better since there is no signal degradation in digital transfer through the monitor cable.
Being agp3.0, it is backwards compatible so in theory, it should work. With the older system, it may be dangerous. I would find a card that clearly states that it works in x8 (3.0) 1.5v. If it doesn't work it could fry the whole system. If i find a card that works, I'll let you know.
I suspect that the PC is still using the driver for the old card. Install the drivers for new card, and use the control panel to select the correct driver set. One way to do this, is to use Device Manager in 'System', and delete the current display driver, and then refresh to get the new one. You may want to set the display to 800x600 resolution before starting to do this.
Set refresh to 60hz Set color to highest position. If this is an LCD, set it to the highest resolution If this is a 15" or 17" CRT, set resolution to 1024x768. If this is a 19" CRT, set resolution to 1280x1024.
Also, do not use the drivers on the CD. Go too nvidia.com and download the latest there.
Also, if you can get into the BIOS, try to disable the on board graphics if you see an option for it.
