Low resolution on your desktop can be for two reasons ,
You have chosen a low resolution from your desktop properties, you need to check this up , by right clicking anywhere in a free area of your desktop , then selecting properties --> settings tab and then you find an option to change the resolution.
If you don't find multiple options to select that means, it's because of no video drivers installed.
Therefore you need to use your motherboard supplied CD to install the VGA/Video drivers and things should work fine for you and you will be able to find multiple resolutions in your settings tab which I described above.
If you cannot increase the screen resolution above 640 X 480 or 800 X 600 and the installed adapter is a generic VGA then the correct video driver was not installed.
You can download the video and device drivers from ASUS WEB site.Select your model motherboard/computer/laptop, and make sure you select driversthat matches your Windows operating system. Please click on this link to theirWEB support site : -

Sounds like you lost your video driver .. when the happens you go into a default setting that is usually low resolution. If you can access your manufacturers web site no doubt they have an updated driver available
There are a couple of reasons for this problem.
1. The screen resolution was set too low. Try 1024 X 768 or higher.
2. If you cannot change the screen resolution then the video driver was not installed or the wrong video driver was installed.
Can you get into the BIOS setup? Usually, it will say "For Setup Press Fn" when you start booting up. When you get into the setup, look for a menu item that deals with "onboard video". Set it to disable. Then "Save and Exit" the BIOS. The new video board should allow you to view the screen, at a reduced resolution, until you load the new software.
