So I've built my computer from scratch and got it working (mostly) and downloaded all the latest drivers, etc.
My issue is that whenever I try to load up a game (like Stranglehold, Company of Heroes, even Morrowind) in full screen mode, the screen flickers like it's going to change resolution. But then my computer just restarts itself. I have no idea why it does this. Case in point, I try to run Morrowind in full screen mode, and my computer reboots itself, but I can (and have been) running it just fine in windowed mode.
Also, along the same lines, according to the specs as shown on Newegg.com, I should be able to go to a maximum resolution of 2560x1600, but with my Samsung 226bw, the highest resolution I can get it up to is only 1680x1050.
Any ideas here?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Well I don't know about the restarting problem, but the reason you can only get 1680x1050 is because that is the most the monitor can do.
The videocard is able to go up to 2560x1600, but there aren't that many physical pixels on the monitor.
Ah... I guess that makes sense... But there's no way to force the monitor to get up to a higher resolution, is there?
