Right now in my display options I have only two resolutions to choose from: 800x600 and 1024x768
but sometimes I have like 10 to choose from: like 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1152xblah, 1152xblah, 1280x960, 1280x1024, 1600x1200.
It seems random whether or not I can access the higher resolutions. I have an ATI 9500 with cat 3.7 and w1zzards hacked driver and I know my max monitor res is 1280x1024 and it will work fine on that, but only at 60Hz but when I would reboot, it would default back to 800x600 sometimes and not others.
Also, I don't think my control panel install is right but I tried installing it from scratch 3 times and still on startup the folder: "C:\Program Files\ATI" opens up instead of the ati control panel going to the systray. Only when I go to display settings, advanced, does the icon go to the systray. Now I can't even hide the freqs my monitor can't handle, and I only have 2 rows of tabs instead of 3 and I know SMARTGART and more tabs are missing. I really need some help, google has no answer thus far. I am fairly stumped. Any help greatly appreciated.
