Regarding the monitor, download the newest video drivers and you'll have more options for screen res, refresh rate, etc. IMO, Nvidia cards are better than ATI cards for the amount of options and 'cool stuff' you can do.

Hi, if someone has upgraded your version of windows the only way to go back to a older version is installing your windows xp home edition cd, only problem with that is when you downgrade you lose everything, so you will have to make sure its all backed up. in regards to the monitor, different monitors can support different resolutions, if you cant change it up any its quite possible you got a more basic one, All the best John

How to change from window7 starter to ultimate without formating my system

Each computer you purchase comes with a Home Edition Windows 7 product, unless otherwise stated in the computer's details. To upgrade your edition, you must purchase a new license key, such as an Enterprise license key. You no longer need to install an upgrade to promote your computer. Instead, Windows 7 has a "Windows Anytime Upgrade" utility that allows you to enter a new license and promote your computer's operating system.

Click the Windows "Start" button. Type "windows anytime upgrade" in the search text box. Press "Enter." This command starts the upgrade wizard for Windows 7. Click the "Windows Anytime Upgrade" option, and select "Enter an Upgrade Key" in the options section. This activates a text box where you type your new license key. Type the Enterprise key in the license text box labeled "Upgrade Key." Click "Next." Windows verifies your license key is valid and tells you that you must wait several minutes to activate your new product license. Click "Reboot" after your new product activates. When you reboot, notice the new product edition "Enterprise" is shown in the Windows splash screen.

How do I reset the default program?

How about this? It's in the control panel, under the default programs. Seems like Vista reversed the logic with file associations.

Worse case scenario is go here, I looked at the code for the exe reg merge, looks right, but I don't own a vista machine. Last I checked the registry looked very similar though...
