Hey there. I've been searching Google quite often about an issue I've been having while trying to play PC games with my new HDTV monitor. A few months ago I picked up a Mitsubishi LT-52244, and have been using a HDMI cable converter to connect to my monitor. I've setup my own resolution that fits perfectly, which is 1804 x 1026. There are a lot of games that work without any difficulty on my monitor, but with a few, the screen will bug out for a second, then go to no signal. I'll have to Control+Alt+Delete out to see my computer's display again, thus ending the program with Task Manager. I've looked up so much about the issue, it's been giving me a headache. I figured this is the last place I'd turn to before I throw this monitor on Craigslist.

Bump + Edit: I've found out the resolution is changing when starting a game, causing the HDTV to go to a unsupported resolution. How do I keep the resolution at my main display resolution?

Run in windowed mode until you can get to the options screen and select the proper resolution?
