Hi! Sorry if this is the wrong thread; I wasn't entirely sure where to post this.
So I have a problem... my computer and gateway monitor normally run at 1920x1080. Today when i turned on my pc, my resolution was set to 800x600 and it WILL NOT go past 1400x1050 and there is no option to go past it. Also, when i go to control panel and screen resolution, the display only says (Default Monitor) ON, when normally it says Gateway or something like that.
First look in the Device Manager, and see if you are getting an exclamation point, or red "X" next to the display adapter.
So I checked device managers, and my ATI Radeon 5800 Series has a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in it.
Then it says in the Device status " Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)"
Went into the control panel to troubleshooting hardware and devices. It found the same error as before and it is attempting to reinstall the drivers.
LDDM Graphics subsystem is disabled. NOT FIXED (red x)
Hardware changes might not have been detected. DETECTED (yellow triangle)
Ati Radeon HD 5800 Series has a driver problem. FIXED (green checkmark).
