When the screen resolution slider won't move, 99% of the time it's because the video card drivers are either missing or corrupted.

To try the easiest thing first - reinstalling the drivers:

1. Right click on My Computer
2. Click on Properties
4. Click on the Device Manager tab
5. Click on the plus sign to the left of Display Adapters
6. Double click on the video card listed under Display Adapter
7. Click on the Drivers tab
8. Click on the Update Driver button
9. Step through the wizard, reading each screen, telling it to "search for a better driver...."

Post back with the results.
