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.

Right click on the desktop and go to resolution. See if you can change it.

Also maybe re-install your drivers.

What monitor do you have? Also, does the Device Manager read the card?

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