I recently bought a 42 inch plasma that is full 1920x1080 HD. My 19 inch pc monitor only goes to 1280x1024 and as i have a radeon 4850 i thought that this resolution was a bit low end for this card. So i hooked it up via VGA (through a DVI-VGA connector first) and tried to play CoD MW2 on 1920x1080 but the screen just went black and reverted to 1024x768. It would only go up to 1280x1024 and i have no idea why. Any suggestions on why it would do this? Thanks guys

Check the EDID settings in the ATi CCC. You may need to override it and select the appropriate resolution.
