    I just reformated my computer because I was having problems. I fixed most of those problems but now I can't change my computer's resolution. I went to control panel then display then settings and tried to change the screen resolution using the little arrow but it won't let me go above 640X480 pixels for some reason. Do you have any advice?

    Have you installed your motherboard and/ or graphics card drivers?

    It's either onboard and with the mobo drivers or separate in which case you can Google the brand and model and add the word driver and download it.
    Download and install this to find out what the video card is and then let us know if you have any problems. http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html
