Did a fresh install of Windows XP Home on a computer and now my screen resolution resets its self to 1280 x 720 every time I restart. The only way I can change it to 1360 x 768 is by using Catalyst. Under Windows the highest setting is 1280 x 720. My HDTV looks the best at 1360 x 768. I have the most up to date drivers for my video card Radeon HD 4350. I have no idea what to do to fix this!

Enabled GPU scaling and it still resets at restart. Everything under CCC panel works fine. I go as high as 1920 x 1080. If I try to change the screen resolution under Windows it only goes to 1280 x 720 When I change it under CCC it will show 1360 x 768 in Windows settings but no higher if I restart it goes back to 1280 x 720 then I have to go to CCC and change it back!

Yes I pressed apply and the screen is at 1360 x 768 now it will stay like than until something changes it when I play Call of Duty 2 it will only go to 1280 x 720 when I quit the game the desktop will be back to 1280 x 720 and I will have to go back into CCC to change it.

Pretty sure that it did. It has to be a software issue because I had Ubuntu installed on this computer and didn't have this problem. Seems like Windows only wants to go as high as 1280 x 760
