    Try updating your video driver.

    Hi all!

    Please help me! I have a problem with resolution, and i haven't got a solution for my issue yet.
    Sorry for my english, i'm actually hungarian..:)
    So the problem is, that the resolution changed in a second without any users intervention to 1024*768 from 1920*1080.
    I connect through HDMI cable, and i have an nVidia 560GTX videocard with DVI and miniHDMI ports and an LG M2450D-PZ monitor with VGA and HDMI ports.
    Computer restart did not help, and i noticed, that instead of the windows 7 logo, i'd seen a vista boot logo.
    Tried to reinstall the nvidia driver (with driver sweeper), but it did not help either.
    These are the steps i tried:
    Reinstalled Windows, Installed another nvidia driver (314.14, the actual driver is 314.07), changed monitor and HDMI cable, changed PCI-E slot, changed RAM slot, BIOS reset.
    And here is the interesting part:
    When i connect through DVI port with VGA cable, i have the 1920*1080 resolution without problem with the same videocard.
    I tried this videocard in another PC and it worked properly on 1920*1080 resolution through HDMI cable.
    I have one more videocard (Sapphire HD4890OC), but with this one, i can't see anything. This videocard does not send signal to the monitor through HDMI cable at all. Through DVI port with VGA cable it does work properly too.

    I do not know what to do now, please help me if you can!

    Thanks a lot!
