Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I am having some problem in adjusting my desktop’s display settings. I have reinstalled windows XP home edition and installed all the drivers including video card drivers. But my display settings just stuck at 640 by 480 pixels. I tried to adjust it at little bit higher settings , I tried at 800 by 600 pixels, 1152 by 768 pixels and higher but when I hit apply in display properties it keep on coming back at 640 by 480 pixels. I checked video card properties and it shows its working okay and have no confliction with any other device These are few things I tried so far but nothing helped.
1) I uninstalled video card drivers and installed it again
2) I tried another video card on PCI slot
3) I tried to change adaptor settings in display properties
4) I tried uninstalling all other devices like sound, Ethernet and wireless drivers but nothing seemed helping
Could anybody please tell me why its happening and how can I fix it. If you need any more details please let me know. My motherboard is Foxconn and it has integrated SIS FX661 pro video card. I tried Nvidea video card on PCI slot but got same problem.
Thanks in advance

the soundblaster cards, usually have to set an interupt port IRQ.
This can sometimes conflict, with any other device connected i.e printer/paralel port.
I,d suggest, power off the computer. and remove the mains power cable. then completely remove the soundcard.
either try the card, in a different pci slot, if you have a spare.
or reboot the computer, without the card in at all.
shut-down, power off. re-insert the card and re-install.
also check, the on-board sound card is working correctly if applicable. you may have a conflict between the on-board and standalone ( soundblaster Card ) attempting to share the same driver or resources.
Finally check the motherboards jumper settings ( User Manual ) to enable/disable the onboard sound. if necessary.
And check the settings in BIOS.
