So today I upgraded to Vista from XP. Every thing has run smoothly except I am having monitor resolution problems. I have a 17' Polaroid widescreen lcd tv that i double as my monitor. Vista doesn't recognize my monitor's resolution like XP did. Vista shows my monitor as a Generic PnP monitor and I can't change my resolution to anything higher than 640x480. I have tried updating my drivers and nothing works. Anyone know how I can fix this?

i wasn't sure where to put this so i put it in hardware also

Check the device manager for any yellow ! (exclaimation). A lot of times you will need to set up an lcd tv as a monitor seperately using the video card software (comes with the drivers)

Check out the options in the video card software. Also, check polaroids website and see if Vista requires a special driver from them.
