Ashi: I got the new machine working
Loony_BoB: =D
Ashi: but the resolution's screwed
Ashi: it doesn't work with 1024x768 even though it's the SAME monitor and the SAME video card
Loony_BoB: >_<
Ashi: my eyes can't take 800x600 for much longer I will seriously go blind because it's all huge
Ashi: do you happen to know what to do with this, by any chance?
Loony_BoB: Um...
Loony_BoB: What OS?
Ashi: windows xp
Loony_BoB: You did it through control settings, I assume.
Ashi: pardon?
Loony_BoB: Settings, Control Panel...
Ashi: oh, duh
Ashi: where the **** is the control panel?
Ashi: wait
Loony_BoB: Start, Settings, Control Panel
Ashi: never mind
Loony_BoB: Then appearance and themes
Loony_BoB: Then click on any of the options and move to the 'Settings' tab on the new window.
Loony_BoB: It should be there.
Ashi: um
Ashi: the bigger resolution just does not work
Ashi: everything looks screwy
Loony_BoB: Gah.
Loony_BoB: Try changing it and then shutting down and restarting.
Ashi: hmm, k
Ashi: brb
Loony_BoB: k

Loony_BoB: Did your resolution work?
Ashi: No
Loony_BoB: Aww... don't worry, hon.
Loony_BoB: Make a thread in the Help Forum?
Ashi: I can't
Loony_BoB: ?
Ashi: the browser looks bad
Ashi: and it hurts my eyes
Loony_BoB: I will if you like...
Ashi: heck, everything about this hurts my eyes
Ashi: could you? Please?
Loony_BoB: Sure. I'll copy paste and edit this conversation. *nods*

Installed the drivers for the monitor and video card yet? :p If not, it'll stick at 800 x 600 for now :p

Control Panel > Administrative Options > Compuer Management, and you should see a Device Manager option in the left hand list. You'll see there what Windows recognises the monitor and video card currently as.
