Hmm, I have a strange problem... I have a Club 3D Radeon 9600 Pro, and it works fine in Windows XP, but before Windows starts to load my monitor is in 800*600 resolution at 50hz refresh, even in BIOS setup. This is very unusual, and VERY annoying... At first everything was normal, and everything was displayed in normal 640*400@60hz before windows loaded, but now all the sudden that is not the case... By the way, I have an Abit IS7-E motherbord...
Any ideas?

If it isn't a driver problem...then it its going to be your card. I'd try cleaning the drivers out. I use the program <A HREF="http://www.driverheaven.net/cleaner/" target="_new">DriverCleaner 2.0</A> from <A HREF="http://driverheaven.net" target="_new">http://driverheaven.net</A>. I'd get the latest catalysts from <A HREF="http://ati.com" target="_new">http://ati.com</A> and then I'd use the driver cleaner following its directions. Then i'd install the catalysts and see what happens. If it still fuggs up. ... I'd say take back your vid card and get a different brand.

Hmm, I just found out what the problem really was... After using DriverCleaner, and re-installing the drivers, the problem still persisted, so it wasn't the drivers... Then I tried to unplug my TV-out cable, and that fixed the problem! Obviously, I can't have my monitor and TV plugged in at the same time, which is a bit weird to me... But everything works just fine in windows with both TV and monitor plugged in though... Strange...
