My monitor is stuck on a unwanted resoultion

I just built a computer and made sure everything worked and it did. i moved it upstairs into my gaming room and when i booted it up it went from 1920x1080(downstairs) to 1024x768(upstairs). yes i went to control panel and it said that 1024x768 is the max. the control panel also says it's a non-generic monitor when before it said syncmaster(name of monitor(samsung)). the widescreen setting is at 16:9 which it is(23in). I need help before the largeness drives me insane, no matter what i do unplugging the wires and putting back in or even removing discrete gpu and putting that back in it doesn't work. All help is greatly appreciated.

    I have a stupid question. Are you sure you plugged into the video card and not some onboard video output on your motherboard?
