      I have just installed the ATI HD4850 graphic card (Gainward Golden Sample version) with the latests drivers available in the website (v8.11 – 8-11_vista64_dd_70230.exe).

      The card is well recognized by Windows 2008 (64bits edition) : Ati Radeon HD 4800 Series and the CCC is working fine.

      My big problem is that I can only choose between two resolutions (800×600 or 1024×768).

      Is there any way to solve this problem ?

      Thanks a lot

        If you have installed all latest drivers of your graphics accelerator and eventually monitor properly I don’t know what the cause of this problem can be. You can try to force to use a higher resolution using the PowerStrip tool.

        Also one more thing you can try is to go to the Device Manager (Start -> Run -> devmgmt.msc) and, expand Monitors, right-click your monitor and choose Update Driver Software…. Now choose Browse my computer for driver software -> Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer, uncheck Show compatible hardware and choose an SVGA driver with the highest resolution your monitor can handle.

        Hope this helps you a bit!

        it was simply my very old monitor that is supporting a maximum resolution to 1024×768 !
