Ok, give this a go.
Start the computer in safe mode as per last time.
This time go into the system properties.
Start - Control Panel - System
Select Device Manager
Find the Display Controllers
Uninstall the card
Restart the computer.

Failing this, download the drivers from the website that your motherboard is from. (If you give me a model number I should be able to loacte it) or goto thew S3 site and get them directly from there.
Start up in safe mode again, install those drivers. and restart.
If you can't find a way to transfer the drivers from the PC you are on to the PC that is not playing nice, then start it up using Safe Mode with Network Support.

Dear Sir, Gigabyte 8VM533M-RZ Motherboard shows 640x480. I can not set to 800x600 or above and permit for limited job. Is there any solution? Please help me. -----Harun


Hello sir,
From the motherboard brand you have, below are the technical specifications: Chipset: VIA ProSavageDDR P4M266A Graphics: ProSavage8 Graphics engine.
The reason you cannot set the screen resolution in Windows XP above 800*600 is because you do not have the appropriate drivers installed for your machine, i.e for the VIA ProSavage8 Graphics card. To solve this problem,you need to download and install the necessary drivers. You can download them from the link below: http://ranger.s3graphics.com/swlib/
Just accept the license agreement and browse through the FTP folders for the S3 ProSavage8 graphics driver(Alt. called ProSavageDDR).
Hope this solves your problem.

How to properly install Asus N6200 AGP video card


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.

Al1917w lcd monitor resolution problem


I have the same problem! Here's what I did: Go into the Display control panel, go to SETTINGS, click on ADVANCED, and then on the ADAPTER tab, then on LIST ALL MODES. There are several 1400 settings. Try them out and see which one is best for you.
