    I recently upgraded (if you could call it that) from XP to Vista, and in doing so, at the same time I installed my new graphics card, the 8800GTS (previously had an old ATI card). I had installed the card first and had the problem in XP I think, but didnt put much thought into it since I wasnt installing any new codecs until Vista was running. The most recent drivers are installed for the card, the version 177.89 beta driver (and the previously installed driver was the 175 or whatever the highest final version is).

    My current highest resolution is 1280x1024. My monitor is a Westinghouse lcm-22w2 with a max resolution of 1680x1050, and obviously this isnt showing up, so I would like to get it back. Any ideas?
